I have been carrying my Para Ordnance LTC .45 Auto during the cold months, but now that it is beginning to warm up and I don't need a jacket, it is harder to conceal. I have an LCP, but working night security, I wanted a little better performance than a .380 ACP. So I went shopping for a more practical CCW. I had it down to 2 guns. Either a Taurus PT-709 Slim or a Sig Sauer P250 Subcompact 9mm. After doing a little research I opted for the Sig. I liked the size and feel and the option to change calibers and frame sizes. It is DAO, but it is smooth and very light. I chose this for the simple functionality and reasonable safety of a DAO without having to worry about a manual safety in the heat of things. I can carry it in a myltitude of ways, including in my pocket. It has a Nitron finish, which will be good to have during the humid summer months in Alabama, and Sig Lite night sights for those low light encounters. But the other reason I chose it was the ability to change calibers and frame sizes. When I go hiking, I plan on changing to a full size .45 Auto. So I just remove the inner frame, drop it in the full size grip, add the new barrel and slide and BAM!!! Ready to go. I know this pistol has recieved mixed receptions, but for me it fits exactly what I need. I will post a range report tomorrow after returning from the range.

Thank you and good night...:D

Congrats on your new pistol. Have you priced any of the caliber conversions for the Sig P250 yet ?
Last price I saw was close to $400 and the dealer had no idea when they would be available. I didn't know of Sig had started shipping them yet. I have not heard from anyone that has the Sig P250 with the conversion. If you get one, let us know how it goes.
I think it is a neat to be able to convert the pistol to different calibers and frame sizes, but after I saw how much the conversions were, I decided it was not for me.
