    The Navy Seals use the P226. That right there says a lot to me. Either the P226 or P229 may be in my future. I’ve shot a P229 in .40, and really liked it. I can’t imagine the P226 being any less of a gun. I do have a Sig P220. Just got it yesterday, and weather is going to force me to wait a few days to shoot it. I have shot one before. Shot it side by side next to a Glock 21, and liked the Sig better. Sigs are expensive, but they are very nice guns. Field stripping Sigs is easy.

    GOD, you guys are great. I really appreciate all the posts and info that you have given me. I now have on order a Sig Sauer P-226 Platnum Elite and am very excited to pick it up when it arrives. I love the way this pistol looks. It will have off-white grips, short reset trigger. Thank You again everyone.

    Congratulations on your upcoming new gun; I'm certain you'll love it.

    Have you figured out anything for your CCW search? Are you just going to continue carrying your CZ Shadow and this new SIG P226 for a while?

    Hi JOSH; Yes, Iam going to carry the Sig for my CCW. I only have "one life" and I want the absolute best protection that I can get my hands on to carry with me at all times. Thank you for asking. Charlie9

    I was issued my first Sig 226 in 1989 when I started on the PD. When they switched to the sig 226 in .357sig I bought it and have kept it close all these years. Hopefully junior will enjoy it when he grows up, or maybe I'll sell it (not)
