P2000 V3. Final answer, unless you care to elaborate on the question.

Concealed carry , duty gun , house/car gun ?

While a little large for CCW , I like the Sig . I've owned HKs & Sigs . I shoot better with the Sig . Have you held both ? Fired either ?

For home use and the range. Wouldn't carry it.

P2000 v3, p226 Blackwater, usp fullsize, all in 9mm, also looking at a glock 17, which one?

I like the way the p2000 feels the most, because it is the smallest. I am left handed so I am leaning towards the HK, but the sig is beautiful and the glock is so cheap, and the USP just feel like a tank that would last forever

Do like I did, buy all of them, got the 226, P2000 and G17, and USP9. you can then make an informed decision. :)
if you're a lefty, the P2000 will work the best.

That is a real tough choice! I think I would have to go with the HK (the DA/SA variant).

However if it were just the standard P226R (with rail) or P226ST (stainless with rail) I would get the SIG.

The major turn off for me when it comes to the Blackwater Edition is the different grips (I perfer factory plastic) and the bear claw stamp on top of the slide.

The thing about the blackwater P226 that gets to me is it's rediculous. Blackwater uses the Glock 17 and 19 and Bushmasters, but hey if SIG wants to pay the A-Team or whoever to honor with a pistol with useless forward cocking serrations, rails and batman logo, I guess there are idiots willing to buy it.

no disrespect to Blackwater but that special edition is a joke. now if this is for range and home use, why not get some weight on it, 1913 rails are good too, how about a P226ST? or the very lefty friendly Beretta 92 Vertec?

I wondered about the P226 Blackwater edition as well. A fellow I work with was involved with Blackwater and as posted above, they use Glock 17/19's and Bushmaster rifles. I mentioned it in conversation and he never saw a P226 in their armory, etc. I could understand a SEAL edition P226 and such, being they actually use the weapon. But the Blackwater one, at least to me, screams to the chairborn commandos "Buy me and go play mercenary".
