    Hate to be a follower, BUT with all the clubs popping up around here, I'd like to start THE SIG CLUB.

    I'm a member of The 642 Club and the amount of information to be had there is incredible. I hope this thread can be as informative for fellow Sigaholics and Sig addicts such as myself.
    I can't get on to the Sig Forum because I have aol, so having a Sig Club on THR might be beneficial to fellow Sig owners and enthusiasts in the same situation.
    Please join and share your Sig stories, pictures and information.
    www.sigarms.com

    Thanks

    Hey, this is my second club this week. First the 336 club now the Sig club. Well, I have 3 Sig's(actually I bought one of them for my SIGnificant other, notice the pun). My favorite is my W.G. 228 that I put Houge wrap around finger groove grips. Then there is the W.G. 225(my SO's), no additions to it yet. And finally the little W.G. 230, I bought it for my SO but she didn't like it so it goes to me:D . Well that is it, glad to be here SIG RULES!

    Welcome to the club.
    I put Hogue finger groves on my P229 .40 dak. It really makes a difference in the feel of the gun. My first Sig was a WG P228. I bought it about 15 years ago - my first automatic :D . I liked it so much that I bought a P220 .45 two weeks later. I've added a Trailside,a P239 .40 two tone, and the P229 dak since. Next will be a P225 or a P226.

    Just bought my first Sig earlier this year. Started up a conversation with the nice Marine in the shooting-lane next to me one day at the range and of course it turned into "whatcha' got there?" sort of thing. Two mags through his 229 in .40 and I knew I had to have one. HAAAD too. Talk about being "bitten"...

    It does'nt take much to get "bitten" It very easily starts to become an addiction :evil:

    Ooo! Ooo! finally a club I can join!:D

    I have a P226 9mm (no rail) and it's my favorite semi. Stellar ergos, reliability, accuracy, and looks.

    Someday I'll get some checkered cocobolo grips for it.

    AHHHHHHH!!! STOP SAYING THAT! Everyone keeps telling me that and I really, really, REALLY... can NOT afford a Sig-addiction. I've already had "the thoughts": Thoughts about selling this pistol or that, to be replaced with, ohhh... say a 220 for instance. And those little 232ST's are just about too sexy for the planet.

    Just got my first Sig, a P229 in .357 Sig, with a 40 S&W barrel for it on order. It's like two Sigs in one!:D

    I always wanted to get a sig but every time I see one at a gun show It never feels right in my hand. It seems like the grip is too cylindrical when compared to my 1911s. Also the slide seems to be the width of a small bus. Anyone else feel this way and over come it, only to purchase a sig and love it?

    My Sig slips into my hand completely naturally, and feels better there than any other hangun I own. Mmmmmmm....:cool:

    Ok, I'll join the club too. I bought my P226 .40S&W almost 6 years ago. I love it. It is the first and only gun I have ever owned. I plan to change that eventually. In fact, I went to look at SA XD-45 recently and somehow a P239 SAS ended up in my hand. Talk about sexy! It will be my next handgun purchase.

    Welcome to the club 1kPerDay and GrooveHolmes!
    +1 on the P239 SAS.
    I'm going to a big show this weekend and might just be coming home with one to add to the "family" :D

    I have several Sigs:

    226 9mm DA/SA made in W/Germany
    2340 .40 S&W
    239 .40 S&W
    220 .45
    229 .40

    I'm about ready to ring my brothers neck though! I ordered a new barrel for my 229 in .357 Sig. I had loaned him my 220 and my 229. He still has them. As he lives a few hours away he hasn't been back and "remembered" to bring them. I have two of his Berretta's in the meantime but I'm a Sig guy. Not a Berretaphile.

    My favorite's are the 2340 and the 229. They both point so naturally and are so easily concealed. They combine the best features of all around guns that they are hard to argue against.

    ugaarguy - Thanks for the info on the GSR
    hrgrisso - Sounds like you might have made a trade and not known it :fire: :cuss:
    Although you can't blame him for not bringing them back.:D

    freaking trading kid brother...

    I think you may be right!

    See if I give him anything for Christmas...

    By the way, I hesitate to shoot +p ammo, or change my 226 in any way that might damage it. I love it but I hesitate. Am I just being paranoid? It's in great shape. Should I be worried?

    Tell me about it. I have always been attracted to them. I wanted a rainbow finish 232 that I saw, but didn't grab in time. A few days ago I saw a 232SL at the local gun store. Even better. Too bad it's not a 9, I'm not comfortable with stepping down to 380.

    But damn that is one good looking weapon. However, my next SIG purchase will either be a 226 in 9mm for range work (and to grab a hi-cap before the next round of bans), or a 229 in 9 or maybe 357SIG just because I want to try that cartridge. Or maybe I'll grab a 239 in 357SIG for commonality with my carry piece. I wish that 239 SAS was made in 357SIG, it looks like a nice package.

    I'll join the club :evil:

    I replaced my 1911 "house gun" with this:

    And my Colt Defender 3" 1911 carry gun with this:

    I'll have to take some better-lit photos soon. C'mon guys, this thread is worthless without pics!! :neener:

    My pets...

    My 1st Sig was the sigpro, sweet gun that I never have time to shoot. Last month I found a great deal on a never fired P245. I'm still in the same boat, I haven't even shot it yet!!!
    I have figured out that the 2 guns have nearly identical dimensions (the 245 is 1/2 in. shorter in the grip) and can use the same holster!:rolleyes:

    Camera batteries dead...pics later.:banghead:

    Grip question

    Now that there is a club for designated Sigaholics, maybe I can get a question answered here.
    Where can I find some wood grips for the P245? Every other part of the gun can be serviced with P220 parts, but the grip comes up "short". (sorry, couldn't resist)
    Thanks,
    John
