It is as I've read elsewhere one of the most underrated triggers available in handguns these days and after finally putting live rounds through mine I can agree.

    Happy to read you had a pleasurable experience in all your seasoning After owning many and selling the ones that didn't work BEST for me, I'm down with SiG's (check my signature and pic threads). I do still try others as well as other calibers when the opportunity presents, but I am pretty picky on what I spend my money on. Fit and feel are foremost. Keep on keepin' on and give us another range report from time to time.

    +1 on the SP trigger. I was in a gun store yesterday looking at a used Walther P99 and saw an SP2009 sitting next to it for nearly $200 less in similar condition. Dry fired it a few times and was really impressed with its trigger.

    the 1911 is becoming less and less popular. It seems things like Sig, walther, glock and HK being the new buzz on the block. 9mm is very popular for these high quality arms.

    Now I have several 1911's and still carry them. There's a lot to be said for many of the modern designs but a good 1911 is just a thing of beauty and will perform great I got a Mark III Ruger for my boy mainly because it is like shooting a 22 cal 1911..heh

    I've been waving back and forth on this topic.... I want to make a 9mm my first purchase but I have others telling me to go 40. caliber....

    You guys are all making great points.....

    But I think for all the reasons pointed out I will go with the 9mm .... I'm leaning towards a Sig226 as my first pistol but that is till up in the air...

    A good quality 9mm, like the Sig226, will handle +P 9mm just fine, and with quality self-defense ammo, that's a good 'stopper,' if you can hit where you aim.

    You can practice with lighter loaded FMJ's that are much cheaper and more pleasant to shoot, and you will practice more, enjoy it more, and likely become a better shooter, as a result.


    Just my opinion.
