    Beautiful handgun. I must admit, I get a little jealous sometimes. I own a Kahr P9 (which I love!) and am looking at the Springfield XD45 as a housegun option. Good luck with the Sig...let us know how it shoots once you pick her up.

    The Sig Equinox is a beautiful gun. I would love to have one of my own.

    I really like the look of those Sigs. Nice choice!

    I like the finish on the Sig 229, but I was honestly more interested in the fiber optic and night sight in one unit on the pistol. I'd be happy if it came in just the plain black finish. Oh well. As it is, I'm planning on picking up a set of CT's for it :)

    In regards to the Permit to Purchase a handgun in NJ (if this is what you are referring to); I believe these are given out at the local level. It would be the same place you got your fingerprints done I think. If that was the state police, then it will most likely take longer to get. If it wasn't give a call to the local police and you may be able to get a permit the same day. Worth a try anyway. Good luck.

    I like the Equinox but I love the SAS. THAT'S the perfect carry gun, with it's melt job.

    Thanks for the picture.

    That's a nice looking piece! I may be turned over to the "Sig Side"

    *If's its not rude, may I ask how much those are?

    Ex,

    I love the design and idea of the SAS, and I'd be ordering one instead of the equinox, but for now i prefer the DA/SA to the DAO. If they made the SAS in a DA/SA component with the site setup like the equinox I'd be picking one of those up.

    And I might still get one, after I've shot a Sig DAK trigger.

    Wayne, I'll let you know final price after I've picked it up, and paid it off all the way, but I think it's right around $900. (course that's NJ price...)

    Why do you like the DA/SA better? Try the DAK on a "normal" Sig and then try it on the SAS. Worlds apart.

    Personal preference, and the issue weapon i'll get if i get my desired job will be a standard Sig 229... so.
