Welcome to the forum. I'd be more inclined to purchase the SP2022 as the controls are laid out in a more user-friendly way. The SigPro series is excellent and would prove to be a freakishly reliable (and sexy) first handgun. The SP also has decock which, on a sig, is really a great feature. You don't have to drop the hammer for anything -for clearing the chamber or for disassembly. Sig has wonderful, innovative firearm engineers in their employ. That's my opinion, fot what it's worth.
