Default first sig?

While its going to be a long time before I get one I've decided I want to get a Sig. Obviously I've heard of the P-226 but any other recommendations?

My first was a 220. Just because a deal came along that was too good to pass up and it had been on my list of guns to buy one day. I really like it and shoot it well. The 226 and 228 are on my list as well.

My first is a 226 Extreme it's a great fit for my hand it points naturally for me and with all the different ammo that I've fed her she's never failed. With the help of some of the guy's here I've decided that the 220 will be my next.

P229- large enough for a decent range gun and a little more compact than a P226. And designed specifically for the .40 SW but available in 9mm as well. Plus a rail is on the P229 if that interests you.

I have to agree with Sonic the 226, although I love this gun, is definitely a gun that you wouldn't want to carry daily.The 229 is a better ccw.I hear alot of great things about the 239 as a carry piece.Some thing else you might want to consider is the fact that on some of these pistols you have the ability to buy conversion barrels.Thing is that you can go from 40. or 357. down to 9. And it's about $150 per barrel.But to go from 9 to 40. and 357. will cost you better than $350 for an exchange kit.

The P250 was my first (in 9mm). I really like it. I traded my XD40 tactical for it.
I plan on a SIG 1911 soon.

My sig won't be a carry gun. It'll be a range/home defense gun

I have used many Sig's in my life but my P250 9mm is the first one I have owned. I bought the exchange kit that turns it into a .45, and made it my every day CC peice.

The 226 fits me just right for those two things .If you haven't picked up one yet you might want to go to you're next local gunshow and get a handful see if it makes you happy.

I've shot 226 and 229. I went with the p229 based on ergonomics. It fit my medium sized hand like a glove. My p229 is an E2 mode so it has the ergo grip and really suited my grip perfectly and it has the SRT and SIGlite night sights.

As a range gun it's great, for HD it's railed so you can add a light or laser if you want, and the p229 is available in 9, 40 and .357 s&w. plus they even make a .22 kit for it as well. As a CC it really depends on the holster and clothing as it is rather on the larger end of the compact spectrum of pistols and tends to print a bit. But you'd have the same issue if not worse with the p226.
I must have put at least 700 rounds thru her and not one FTE or FTF or any other glitch whatsoever. Love it.
