What about an M&P? It's not a Sigma.

I just have problems with polymer pistols Shi. I know there's some good ones out there, I just can't seem to warm up to them. The M&P and the XD are excellent pistols. I've handled them and sold them at the shop. Maybe I'm just too old.

The Sig P226 sounds like the best choice in this case. I hope you like it or the CZ!

A shame you can't get an FM Hi-Power delivered to you, what a deal! I have one and like the one you had it's been 100% reliable with good ammo. I'm tempted to get another at that price.

Nice to see a lot of love for the Hi-Power here!

Edit: I'm not recommending this because there are lots of bad reports but my Taurus Millennium Pro 9mm has been a great little gun and reliable. Love that it holds 12+1 and has good sights. Accurate enough for a small pistol and you get used to DAO.

Yeah, Taurus makes some nice pistols, but I'm scared of their reputation. The shop won't carry them because of quality control and customer service issues.

Sounds like your leaning Sig...

My 226 .40 has never let me down and is trusted as my bedside gun for this reason.

If your open to another suggestion, the CZ75B has a very BHP "feel" to it. The B indicates a thumb safety rather that a decocker so you can carry locked n cocked just like the BHP or 1911 and they run in the mid 4's NIB for the matte finish on an all metal gun. I picked up on in SS about 3 months ago and have been quite happy with it.

Tack

I like my M&P, but if you want all-steel and can get a Sig on the cheap, I don't see any reason not to.

Good! More shops need to be like that one.

I don't know if they're CA approved but TopGunSupply has the CZ-P01 for $459 and in stock. Great compact version of the CZ-75. I agree that the classic Sigs are great pistols and an LE trade-in wouldn't worry me one bit. I prefer the 228/229 to the 226 mainly as it's a tad smaller and can be carried easier...

If it's a 9mm you want and you want to save a few bucks then the CPO Sig Sauer's are the best way to go. You get a quality weapon that has went back through the Manufacturers hands again to make sure it's OK. Also you might look into a P6 Sig 9mm. Most of these are German LEO trade ins and are many times very reasonable. You might have holster wear to deal with but they a re a great bargain. A friend of mine picked one up with the leather duty holster that it was carried in at a gun show for 425.00. THey are a single stack though and a lot of 9mm people think that's crazy. So a CPO 226 might be the better rout if capacity is an issue.

The only knock against the Sig P6 (or its commercial brother the P225) is that mags are hard to find and pricey. I've owned both and they are very nice guns...
