MK-25-LARGE.jpg
The SIG SAUER® P226® is the pistol that set the standard by which all other combat handguns are measured. The exceptional ergonomics and balance make this fullsize pistol easy to handle. Its longer barrel yields better ballistic performance and accuracy. The P226 MK25 is identical to the pistol carried by the U.S. Navy SEALs-the fleet’s special warfare operators. The railed P226 chambered in 9mm and engraved with an anchor on the left side of the slide is the official sidearm of the SEALs.

Thanks Jon...I have been eyeing a few Sigs for a long time..The bonus drops Friday and I'm getting one!! The X-Five was my first choice but the one I wanted was more cost than I wanted to incur right now....

Ive had a 220 in 45acp since 1990 just a great gun line. ive still got it even though i dont carry it anymore. They are fairly easy to detail strip.

Only reason its not in my carry lineup is capacity

Congrats JCS53.

Sig's are very good guns. Probably the best. Certainly extremely accurate and well made.

Also extremely expensive.

You get what you pay for, always.

When I chose my CZ 97B 45ACP, it came down to it or a SIG.

The only difference was price.

In Cali you would be limited to 10 anyway, so the excess capacity of a 9x19mm does not help you here.

Therefore you might as well go with the 45ACP here.

1911A1's are great pistols, yes.

They are single action and extremely reliable.

You really need to keep them in Condition #1 (loaded, chambered, cocked, and safety switch on) to be effective with them, and even then, there is a slight hesitation during your draw while you flick off the safety switch - half a second or so.

When I walked my post for Uncle Sam with my 1911A1 Springfield, I kept it in Condition #2, but also taught myself to pull back the hammer with my shooting hand's thumb as I drew it from the holster, just like a gunfighter from the Old West with a Colt 44-40 would do. That's because I grew up watching cowboys and Indians on tv as a kid.

With a double action pistol like the CZ's in 9mm (like your SIG) or in 45ACP, I can draw and shoot from Condition #2 (loaded, chambered, hammer down, no safety switch, the only safety being the spring safety on the firing pin) and thus at close range, I would be shooting 1/2 second faster.

I admire your love and respect for the 1911A1 though.

If you are not Old School, then you are certainly an admirable younger person.

I believe you are right-on with your 9x19mm SIG.

I appreciate it Shoobee. I am ancient. But I am only 4 years or so into really being a good gun lover. I've learned an incredible amount in the forums I spend time in and really do appreciate all the knowledge you guys so willingly share.
