    I have a 239 9mm. It is one of the best guns I have ever shot. The trigger is excellent, the feel is good, I love the DA/SA. It has never malfunctioned in any way. The recoil is not bad at all, including +p. I dont carry yet (not 21) but when practicing around the house it conceals with no problem. If I got another sig I would get the 220- carry

    Bunny,

    Try a SIG P-220 Carry (.45), I think you'll be surprised how well you can shoot it!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    my 239 DA/SA in .40 cal is on the top of my favorites list. Personally, I have no problem with 7+1 capacity.

    A great (semi) compact carry gun.

    I have a P220 SAO Carry. I like it a lot and just ordered a TT Gunleather OWB holster for it today. Pros are its very well built gun, has a crisp trigger, is accurate, reliable, durable, is thinner in the grip than a typical double stack 9mm, looks way cool, has a good warranty and is just plain fun to shoot. Cons are it is not a small gun and easy to conceal - its best role is as a duty sized gun, not a compact. Don't know enough about you and how you plan to carry to say if you should get one...it's good that you are going to try one out first.

    If you really like Sigs and the P220 is not for you , then I would suggest you gravitate toward a P239 DAK in 9mm. It too is a single stack like the P220.

    Wow, thanks all for the great info and advice! Tomorrow is CCW class & Qualifying at the range, and then Sunday is the gun show if I can make it there between Church and a rescue event, so I'm trying to cram in what I can. I'm definitely gravitating towards Sig, and found a range near here that will rent out almost every one listed, so I can spend some time "getting to know" which one feels right for me.

    Other option I am considering is H&K, possibly? Have a few of those available to play with at the range as well.

    Thanks again! I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow :)

    H&K's are very soft shooters - my main squeeze is a USP Compact 40 LEM. If you can, try a CZ 75 Compact and/or a CZ 75 PCR too. These are double stacks and are thinner in the grip area and have a lower bore axis than Sigs. The CZ's have extremely good ergonomics.

    Might look at the P220 Compact, they seem to be much smaller, or maybe a nice p245 can still be found. I agree with warmon, the new cz stuff looks very promising. HK I would suggest the P2000sk with the LEM, in 9mm. But if 45 is your thing maybe the HK45C. But havent handled one of those.

    Even though I just bought a kahr pm45, I would trust my life with my p220. I love my sig. If I were forced to abandon all my handguns and only keep one, that would be it. I've never had a failure in it. Recoil? It seems my hi-power I had had more recoil. Smooth, reliable, I can't say enough. If the place I just bought my other 45 had a p220 compact, i may have chosen it. In fact, I'm still thinking about it. Buy it, you wont regret it.

    The P220 is the way to go single stack mag so it has a thinner grip for better control and the power of a .45 is always nice to have

    I have 3 Sigs, 220, 226, and Pro. I have never had an issue with any of them. The 226 is the one I shoot the most, range and competition. It has over 10,000 rounds and "2" problems with my handloads (no powder) otherwise perfect. They are reliable as a rock and as accurate as you are. I use a VMII for the 220 and 226 with a Don Hume for the Pro. On holsters the VMII is great but if I had it to do over I would have T&T Gunleather do them.

    If I was starting fresh again the P229 is for me as accurate as the slightly larger P226 and easier to carry. Also the 229 was designed with the .40 in mind and an additional barrel for .357 Sig is always fun to have.

    As reliable and accurate as my Sigs are they are matched by H&K with a big nod to the .40 P2000sk which shoots soft and amazingly accurate for such a small gun.

    The only negative I would have is my Sig 220 Equinox. A great gun and looks fantastic but the lack of stipling of any kind on the backstrap makes shooting it competitively more difficult. So for that I switch out for rubber Hogue's, but I hate to remove those pretty Equinox grips.

    The folks at SIGforum might have offered a very different opinion of the particular P220 which has been recommended to you, as certain variants tended to have issues. I am not sure which, as the P229 fits my hands far better than the P220, and I must use .40 duty ammo, with the P229 being one of the authorized choices I have for primary duty pistols, so I have little to no interest in P220s, except for the full-sized match and target variants.

    "The" quintessential SIG seems to be the P226 in 9mm, probably due to its being designed for the pistol trials of what became the U.S. military's M9 pistol. Of course, Beretta "won" that contract, but the SEALs, with greater freedom to choose weapons, went with the P226 for their own use. The British SAS also adopted the P226.

So if you do get a sig, plan to spend about 50 bucks after taxes and shipping on each new mag, unless you go Gunshow shopping, and then you might find some for 40.
    Just to be clear, Mec-gar is the current vendor for SIG magazines, so a Mec-gar-branded mag, while probably significantly less expensive than a SIG mag, should function exactly the same.

    Moreover, mercy, don't pay fifty bucks for a factory SIG magazine! They can be had for thirty-ish bucks, in SIG packaging. Some SIG mags will command a higher price, such as the extra-capacity SCT mags; I paid fifty for a P229 SCT mag recently, but that same source has the standard P229 mags listed at thirty, and various versions of the P220 mags for 30 to 40.

    bunny, we have had several sigs, you will love them, here is my input, we have had very good luck with the LEO trade ins. my 229 in 357 sig is one of my favorites. we also fixed up a 225, it is very nice to shot, but a big gun with low capacity. but the one sig we had the trouble with was the mosquito. i even contacted TJ's about it and his advice was trade it off. so we did. i have had the best luck with sig mags, they are higher but worth it. we have also found that the wolf spring kits are easy to install and really make the trigger pull sweet. good luck.

    SIG Mosquitoes are famously problematic.

    As for the magazines, Top Gun Supply has decent prices on the Mec-Gar and Novak mags for SIG. Novak makes the factory P220 mags and Mec-Gar makes all the other ones, so it's basically the same as buying factory mags at about half off.
