Too expensive for what you get. Better bang for your buck out there. That is unless you really want a Sig and are willing to pay the premium.

.40 S&W is an answer to a question never asked. Either side of .40 is a better choice, 9mm or .45 ACP.



Hey, you asked.

You will not go wrong with the Sig P229, Shot hundreds of round, never had an issue.

P220/226/229 are great guns. Buying them brand new can set you back quite a bit, but they're almost nice enough to justify it. There are some great used deals out there.

I'm not a huge 40sw fan. It's a fine defensive caliber and all, but I'd probably lean toward a P226 in 9mm or a P220 (45acp). But if you like the 40sw and the price is right, jump on it.

I really don't understand when people say a gun on the higher-end of the price spectrum is "too expensive", or "overpriced", etc.

If you can afford something nice or the more desirable stuff. Why not? Just as long as you understand that it won't make you a better shooter, or a better human being, or as long as you're not doing something stupid like blowing your life savings on it.

Besides, people buy things for more than just its functionality. No matter how much a lot of us don't want to admit it style counts and that high end mall ninja stuff is pretty cool!

So if you can swing a P226. Why not? Go for it! Spoil yourself!

I know nothinbg of this weapon but to the last post: why pay 39.95 for an adjustable wrench when you can buy a set of real wrenches for 29.95? Alot of times TOOLs that cost more dont actually fit the NUT any better and its nice to know that

If all you want the wrench to do is loosen the nut then fine. But what if you really like wrenches and think they have more use then just to loosen the nut?

If a pistol is only a tool then get a Glock They work..That's all. But if you are one that sees more in a pistol than just a tool then you might want to look around at other alternatives.

A Sig can get expensive. But you can find a deal of you look around. CPO or LEO trade ins can be had around 500.00 give or take 50.00. With as Sig you get a really nice weapon. One that will olive up to the "To hell and back reliability" moniker. And it wont give you that woke up next to the ugly chick after a hard night of drinking feeling.

At the end of the day no mater what it is it's only worth what you are willing to pay for it. If a Sig is too expensive then it's not worth it....To you. My two Sigs (226 & 229) I got for right at 500.00 per. To me they where worth every penny. But being mainly a 1911 guy I'm willing to pay pretty well for a weapon that in my opinion is more than a tool. It's more a functional work of art. I like how they look as well as how they function. A Sig in my opinion also fits in this category pretty well.

ive got a sig p220 and used to have a p226 in 9mm. sold the p226 cuz i just didnt shoot it. both are superb guns. they go bang when the trigger is pulled everytime. extremely accurate and shootable. i like em better than any of the striker pistols out there. they just feel good. not as good as a nice colt or springfield 1911, but better than most of the 1911's out there.

i too am of the opinion that the 40 is a solution in search of a problem. both the 9mm and 45 are better rounds. 9mm is more controllable the 45 more effective. however if you want one there is no better reason to get one

Well, one of my first purchases when I get money, is going to be a Nighthawk and a Les Baer, so, I don't mind paying alot for a good gun, I was just interested in getting a Sig and looks like they have gotten good reviews here : )
