    If I currently own a full size 9, sub compact 9, a couple of micro 380's and a full size 40, which of these 9mm SIG's makes the most sense for me to pick up?

    Off hand it seems the compact 250 or the 290 makes the most sense, to fill a hole in my collection, but the sub compact offers advantages over my current sub compact so I'd like to get some input from the SIG crowd as I have admittedly never owned a SIG.

    In terms of ability to carry how does a Compact 250 compare to say a Glock 19?

    A subcompact to a Glock 26?

    A 290 to a Glock 43?

    Thanks!

    About 5 years ago, I bought a P259SC, shoots good and zero problems in that time. Lower end of $$$$ spectrum but I shoot it well.

    My vote is for the P320, the pistol that will carry SIG into a prosperous future. I'm not a fan of DA/SA designs.

    I like the G19, but find the P320 Compact much more enjoyable to shoot - and about as easy to carry.

    Well that's all fine and dandy but with nearly a $200 increase in price I'm afraid it's out of range for me.

    Of the pistols listed, I'd go the route of the P250 compact, but if you're not diametrically opposed to a DA/SA trigger, I'd say that the SP2022 is also worth a look. It's roughly the size of the P250 Compact, is hammer fired and has the standard Sig fire controls. Bonus, it won't break the bank and they're pretty readily available.

    I'd agree with this. Lots of distributors and retailers seem to be having fire sails on the 2022, actually (and this pistol is issued to some law enforcement agencies as well, and I've seen no reports of dissatisfaction with it so far). However, if it became possible to pony up the extra bucks, I'd definitely go with one of the P-320s; simply an intriguing pistol with a better trigger than Glocks and not as expensive as H&K's comparable offering (VP series).

    Wish I could help by saying I'd compared the 250 series to Glocks, but as I no longer own any Glocks ... sorry.

    Fine and dandy it is, then. :)

    The compact SIG P250 is very comparable in size to the Glock 19 but the Glock 19 is a bit sleeker in the slide and also the frame (given its block-like grip). Of the options listed, my choice would be the compact P250.

    I would and did buy a Sig P320 Compact. It a nice gun at a fairly good price, especially from Sig.

    Will you consider a P220, which is what your collection really needs? :cool:
