I have a Sig Sauer P226r. The best handgun I have ever owned. I have owned a lot of handguns. Go for one of the P226 variants. I know you will be happý with it.

This.


Fit first, function second.

If it doesn't fit you, the function won't matter.

But if it doesn't function, then why have it?

And I understood your point you were making and agree to it, but I just had to make that comment

I do not know about where you live, but here in the Salt Lake area there are gun stores with indoor ranges that let you rent handguns that interest you so that you can see not only what the best fit for your hand is, but how well you handle the firearm, the recoil, can use the sights, etc. You will want to select a model that fits well in your hand and that you can fire accurately. The only way to know that is to fire the pistol that interests you. And, unless you are made of money, you will want to eliminate some models early on in your search.

If one is available, ask for a nationally credentialed firearms instructor to help you select. Many gun stores employ NRA Certified or Law Enforcement Certified Firearms Instructors. A bad score on the target may be less the fault of the gun than of poor technique. I have observed two variants of males at a range. One variant knows everything just because he is male, and the other variant is genuinely happy that a Certified Instructor wants to help them.

Sig P226...my new favorite! That was easy wasn't it?

Is this your first gun? A .357 may be a little bit too much for your first purchase.
