Glad she is ok, congrats on the purchase.

Wow..When I was a kid, I had that happen in my basement with a CO2 pellet rifle. Missed my eye by an inch. Never told my Dad because I figured he wouldn't let me shoot down there again.

Not sure if I'll ever use it but it'll be nice to have the option. And with the money I save I can be through 1000 rounds before I'd reach the price of a sig.
I can't fault your choice, congratulations and WELCOME to the wide world of handgunning!

I carried the Barreta while in the service and own the Sig 226. Being intimately familiar with both platforms I chose the Sig because I preferred the de-cocked only to Barretas decock/safety But this is subjective personal thing and should not sway anyone else. I also felt that the open slide design of the Barreta presented more opportunity for foreign material to jam the weapon but I'd it's HD only, this should not be a concern.

Congrats again and shoot safely!

Tack

I believe the OP bought a Sig Sauer P226 instead according to his last post along with his significant other now being terrified of going to the range due to a piece of ricochet coming back.

Boy, having to choose between a Beretta 92FS and a Sig Sauer P226. Wish all of life's choices were that tough! Monica Belluci or Heidi Klum? Ferrari or Porsche?

Sure did. Wish I would have had a chance to handle them both though. The guns, not the girls .

I couldn't pass up the price of the sig, they had a used one too that was in good shape but I figured I'd go the safer route.

Just waiting on my grip screws to come in for my hogue grip now. Can't wait to shoot it with that grip. It fits like a glove when I tried it on.

Did it come with SRT? Not that it needs it in my opinion. You can always buy the SRT kit if you think you need it. Nice thing about the P226 is that you can buy conversion kits to make them .22LR, 9mm, .40SW, .357 Sig.

Wish H&K had conversion kits but even if it were possible they stamp their serial number so that the frame, barrel, and slide must match.

It could have. Depends on what an SRT is?

I didnt know the p226 was convertible. I've heard a few guns were, that's good to know. I didn't know it was going to come with an accessory tail either and it did, that was a plus in case I decide to use it.

Short reset trigger. Makes the trigger travel 50% less. Cost around $50.

I'm a Sig Guy so I'll recommend the P226.

Most guns are in fact convertible. The 92 can be converted 40 (making it a 96) if you can locate a slide assembly. SIGs p250 can be converted to 5 different calibers.
