What about the P229 SAS? I love my P229 extreme in 9mm, but wonder how it would fit without the rail. Any thoughts?

I guess at least one good thing about Sigs is they are expensive and if you are like me, then it takes long enough to save up for one that I will have ample time to research my choices. So far, I'm looking at P239, p229 and if I get impatient, then a p2022.

Never held one. One friend has a 228 and another a 226. I *Think* the 229 is a bit thicker and slightly longer then the 228...not sure will look up specs...

I frequently carry a Sig P6, but I had a TuTone SAS P239 that was just the classiest CC you'd ever want. Sold it , just to raise money.

P229 and P239 are outstanding guns if they suit your demands. The P2022 is a solid gun for $400, but won't be a great carry option for many.

In general, polymer Sigs are pretty underwhelming in my experience. And I'm all for polymer, BTW. But they just don't stack up to SW M&P, Springfield, FN, Glock, Ruger, CZ, etc in my opinion...much less HK. Granted, many of those guns cost a bit more than the 2022/250/etc. Sig's polymers are decent 'budget' guns in my opinion. And some will find that they fit just right, which means they get exactly the gun they're after at a really opportune price. Nothing wrong with that.

My dad has a 2022 and I have a p229. Side by side there are things that bug me with the 2022 (the way the de-cocker feels springs to mind) but had I not shot and handled a p229 I don't think the little things would bug me. The 2022 is a fine weapon in my opinion. I'd take it over any number of other polymer handguns including GLOCK, Springfield, and Ruger. Is it as refined as a P series handgun? No it is not, but it is about 60% of the cost.

I got a 239 for the same reason. (decocker and liked the 226).
For cc it is nice but its still as wide as the 226 (almost). I won't be trading it off by no means. Very happy with it, but I'm always looking for another CC than is thinner.(I realize there's a trade-off) The search has been fun and still looking.

If the decocker isn't a deal killer, look at the P938. It is styled like the P238 but in 9mm, so it is a SA with a safety where the slide lock is on a 1911.

We are talking small, like just under 6" in length, chambered in 9mm with 6 round mag for 7 total. Like a 1911 it is a Condition 1 pistol (safety instead of lock). I shot one 3 days ago (its good to work in a LGS/Range) and found it to be a nice shooter with a crisp trigger. Almost bought one for myself till I came to my senses and remembered that I have a new STI 1911 on order.

Have your wife take a look at this Lady Sig P238. This is what my wife normally carries and is happy with the way it shoots. By the way she is 5 ft nothing and about 123 lbs.

Thanks Mike! Annrose is 5'2"...the Pink will just P her off.....she does like the "Tribal" 238 we saw at another LGS. I'm Currently selling come "collectables" from the collection. as that sale winds itself down, and we put some of that $$ back in the bank, there will be room to purchase a few more,...and a .380 for her(either the Sig or the Ruger LC380) will be in the future......
She might be here soon herself so I will "intro" her to you all,.my Extended FTF family....
