I just picked up a SigPro 2022 9mm a few days ago. Took it out to the local indoor range and popped a few out of it for the 1st time. I am a revolver girl, and this was my first slide gun. I was very impressed. I will be going out for a full day of tooling around in the desert with it on Friday (armed with 500 rounds). I'll have a better idea of how it performs then, but first impressions are looking good. Deals do exist as well! I was lucky to pick this one up locally for $400

For a decocker 9mm, don't think you'll beat a Sig. I've got a P226 in .40 SW. Though I carry a 1911, the Sig is my bed side gun. 100% reliable and more accurate that you'll ever be...

The beauty of the 226 is that it's also caliber convertible. By it in 9mm and if you later want to step up to .357 Sig or .40 S&W, you just order replacement barrel, recoil spring, and magazines. I'm thinking of stepping down to 9mm to save on ammo cost myself.

So I purchased a Sig Sauer SP2022. It came with 2 magazines (1 is 15 rounds, not sure about the other), a 2nd grip that I can install and night sights. Used, but it doesn't look very worn. $550

I appreciate all the input, this one feels real good in my hands.

I'll post pics in a bit

edit - the 2nd magazine is 10 rounds

I don't have any poly Sigs but I do own several all metal Sigs. They are great guns. The only reason I don't own a poly is I haven't found a deal I couldn't resist, yet.
Congrats!
Now go burn some ammo.
