Seriously, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a silenced SIG, Matt.

I'm actually mad I didn't think of it first. Those pistols are very nice (SEALs / Special Agents / US Marshals / etc..... like them for a reason).
Close to 3/4 of the world uses 226s or a variant thereof.

Taken from Sig's website:

* U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (largest U.S. non-military contract)
* U.S. Navy SEALs
* U.S. Federal Air Marshals
* U.S. Secret Service
* U.S. Coast Guard
* U.S. ATF
* Federal Protective Service
* Colombia: CNP 12,000 pistols; Army 800 precision rifles
* France: over 250.000 SIG SAUER pistols in use by Police Nationale, Gendarmerie and Douanes
* Chile PICH
* British SAS
* Hong Kong Police – new P250
* Canadian Military (P226)
* U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security
* U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS)
* U.S. Army 902d Military Intelligence Group (M11)
* USAF OSI (M11)
* U.S. NAVY Aviators (M11)
* 8 German SEK units
* Norwegian Special Forces
* German Customs and Border Control
* GIGN French Special Force
* 1/3 of all U.S. State & Local LE

In case some of the viewers don't know how pretty a SIG P226 is, here's a pic:



I am debating on purchasing a SIG P2022 just because of their quality and reputation (plus they are very nice in the hands).

now this is turning into a pro-sig thread

-found a p239 used for a good price and put a whole lot of rounds through it. loved it. cherished it. notice the past tense on all these words though? i had like 3 9mm pistols at the time taking up space and constituting cash i could have used towards other things... in my "infinite wisdom" (infinite sarcasm applied here) i decided the sig was the one i needed the least. :kicks self in the ass: i should have sold my xbox 360 instead...

CZ PO1, best 9mm I have ever shot, but the CZ SPO1, if I had one would be the one I would keep.... most under-rated handguns on the market

Sure, you can buy .45's at any gun shop. You need a permit to buy bullets in Argentina, and they are only sold at shooting ranges (usually cheaper than gun shops, but you can't take the bullets out of the premises) and gun stores.

Something both the Browning HP and the 1911 have in common is that any gunsmith down here has experience fixing them. I've got no experience in Central America, but I've worked in several South American countries (Perú, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile).

In some places revolver ammo is more common than semi-auto bullets.

Interesting - Thanks for the perspective.

So, you need a permit for bullets, is that true for any caliber? Or just certain specific calibers? I would assume it's for all calibers - but is .45 specifically common in your parts?

Thank you -

JD

I own only one 9mikemike and inherited it from my Dad.
I don't shoot it anymore due to its value, both intrinsic and nostalgic.
It is however, an outstanding design, the P08.




I’m not a big fan of the caliber, not for any reasons other than I believe there are much more effective choices available.

I have shot several 9s in various marks and just don’t get that warm-n-fuzzy I experience with the 45ACP.

Before I take that inevitable ‘Dirt Nap’ I do plan to own a second 9mm.

The BHP will be added to my arsenal someday (soon I hope) and not for the caliber but for the sheer desire to own another JMB treasure!

.45 is not especially common, but it is widely available. It's a favourite of many shooters. 9mm is probably easier to find in small rural towns, since it's the caliber almost all my country's police forces use.

You need ammo permits for any caliber, .22 and some shotgun rounds used to be extempt. Basically when your first gun of any caliber you apply for an ammo card where store clerks have to write the details of the bullets you buy (brand, type, etc.). You're allowed to buy 1000 rounds a year of each caliber (I think you can buy more .22 ammo), but any bullets you purchase at a range doesn't count towards this limit (but you have to use it at the range, although you can store it there).

I just realized that the OP didn't specify that it had to be a pistol.
