a possible CWP firearm. An LGS has a Sig Sauer P6 (P225) for $440 with shoulder rig and extra magazine. This is an 8+1 capacity 9mm pistol and predecessor to the Sig P226 high cap pistol. I've read good things about the Sig pistols but was wondering if anyone here has any real trigger time with them.

This single stack 9mm would be my primary carry gun if my CWP license comes through. While a high cap pistol would be ideal, I am concerned about printing when I carry. Any info would be appreciated.

This is posted on another forum but thought I'd get some opinions from you folks.

Thanks everyone.

I've looked at the PF-9 and found that I don't like leaving the little finger hanging out in mid-air or curled under the handle of the pistol. The Sig has a full size grip without the width of a double stack magazine. As to the 1911, I have yet to find any that are below the $499 mark up here in the Montana capital city. That's for a RIA no less.

Another option is the Ruger SR9. This is a high cap, slim profile 9mm. I haven't handled one yet to compare to the Sig.

I'd get a Glock 26 or a 27 depending on whether you want 9mm or .40 cal. Glocks are indestructible, you can use high cap mags, and those two models are easy to conceal. I would recommend getting the magazine extensions so your pinkie has a home though.

Also, forget about the shoulder holster. They look cool and all but I guarantee you will not like it...

Sig P250 all the way, i love the DAO once you get used to it, i have the 9mm subcompact and the .357 Sig. You just change the upper, keep the FCG. Sent it off to customized creations for a CCW melt, would not trade it for anything. my EDC: it has a chrome take down lever, mag release and a stipple job added since this pic.

I've shot a few Sigs, a Mosquito and the 232. The Mosquito seemed to jam every way imaginable, and really turned me off of Sigs. The 232 on the other hand, that was a work of art, almost perfect one would say. Sigs have some of the best triggers on the planet.

Have you looked into Kahr? I've never shot one, but people really seem to like them and they work.

The SR9 is unbelievably thin, but it has a long grip which could stick out and print depending on how you carry.

Not sure of the budget but there is give and take in capacity and keeping it hid or printing..I really like my XDm 9mm..buying an extra mag I pack 19+1, 19 and 19 = 58 rds and the pistol is only an inch wide or so. Check one out for sure.

You gonna try to carry yours as well? I know I'd be able to carry mine in coat weather no problem (might even go OWB for that) but right now I have no idea how I would avoid printing with that beast.

No Bersa pushers here? Smaller than the SR9 (i've shot it, and liked it, and 18 rounds in that thin gun...WOW!), cheaper than the Sigs, (yeah, they are sweet, I hear)
Or maybe a CZ-82? A little thicker than a single stack, but 12 rnds of military hardware at $200...give or take.
I just got a P3AT, I can carry it in anything I wear, and if I have to defend myself, I don't give a crap if my pinky hangs off or not. :devilsidesmile:

Price is not unlimited but looking in the $350 to $500 dollar range to start. Looking to stay with either 9mm, .40S&W or .45ACP as these are rounds I have on hand. As to shirts, I usually wear a polo shirt that stays untucked in the XL Tall range. That means concealment is not a problem excpet for printing through the shirt.

Thanks for all the suggestions. So much information to look through, so little time.

HPHooked, if you get a K-Holster, you could carry a C9 and not print with what you are wearing, most of the time!
I have done it. Of course, I have a little extra padding around the middle to help out the concealment... :D

I have ample time with the Sig 226 when it comes to trigger time. You will love the one your looking at. Though pricey the Sig is a great weapon.

I wear a coat, sometimes a tie, and/or a jacket everyday, so I have no problems carrying my stock Glock 17 9mm most times in a Biacci paddle with two spare mags on opposite hip (Biacci mag leather). But, today I am wearing my Hi-Pont .40 cal on my hip using a Uncle Mike's No. 15 under my jacket. No imprinting there; but, of course, I am a big guy.

What are anyones thoughts on the EAA Witness pistols. I've looked at one that is in .45ACP caliber and comes with the .22LR conversion kit. It's running around $500. While more than the Sig P6, it's like getting two pistols for the price of one. I've always wanted to replace the Ruger MkII pistol that I had and this looks like the chance to do it while also getting a serious work gun.

No experience, but I hear good things about the Witness guns; from those that own them... 8)
