      MT Wallet, also you can pick up some MecGar 15 round 228/229 9mm mags that are a flush fit and, cosmetically will look the same as your factory 13 rounder. That is, if you didn't want to go the route of having a longer grip by using those 17 or 18 rd mags previously mentioned.

      Wow 18 rd mags? That is good to hear Growler! And that adapter looks terrific

      Your P228, knives and ammo look awesome too

      Thank you YFZ, I actually would like to keep the stock look and size of my current set up

      The 15 rd would be perfect because with one in the chamber it would be 16 and it would perfectly complement my other gun that also holds the same amount

      I bought a P6 [4/80] about 1 1/2 years ago, and it's a great shooter, but until recently only with ball. It would nose down FTF about once per mag with HP because it was never designed to shoot them. I've been experimenting lately, and I think I've found a HP round that works - at least for eight straight mags. It's a Remington UMC JHP, and it has worked in the factory mag and a spare ProMag.

      My gun is in very good shape, because I paid extra for a hand select, but I've never carried it because of the ammo problem. I always holstered one of my newer Sigs, or a S&W, or one of my Kahrs in warm weather. Today I have the P6 on my belt in a a BladeTec holster made for a P220, and it fits the P6 perfectly.

      When in a 9MM mood I carry a Sig 228 in an Alessi/Heine DOJ. Sadly the holster is not available any longer.

      Hi guys.. Yeah I haven't been in for a while. I was considering the same question actually.
      The 250's seem to be hitting the market with steam.. I know I'd love a 239 for a carry piece, but looking for opinions on 250 subs. As much as I love my XD45C... I'm thinking it's just going to be too much bulk for typical daily carry.

      I purchased a P250 Subcompact for conceal carry. I love the gun, but am waiting on a holster for it. When I started looking for holsters I found that nobody really makes them. I am having one made, so as far as actually carrying the gun I can't yet say, but it's acurate at the range and a lot of fun to shoot!!

      P226

      I carry my p226 DAK 40S&W. It doesn't bother me having it in the small of my back for long times. I can say that you shouldn't go smaller than a 9mm, unless you plan on doing headshots.

      Do your homework and decide which one works better for YOU....

      The only Sig I would think of ever using for a CCW would be the P238, doesn't have a ton of knock down but its small and goes bang if you need it to. I love my sigs but they are no where near a good conceal carry weapon. They shoot accurate, reliable, love to shoot them but they are fat and over sized to carry in anything else than a side holster.

      Can you carry them?? yes, will you carry it daily if its not comfortable?? No. Therefore get something that you will keep at your side at all times, not something that you will just carry every now and then.

      When my permit gets here hopefully in October I will be carrying the P239 SAS Gen II 9mm in a Crossbreed Super Tuck with a spare mag on the weak carry side.

      Depending on how and when you intend to carry, the 239 would be one the the best choices for overall ease of carry. I currently have a P225, which is also the single stack mag, and it's great, due to the slim profile.
      I'm a fan of all SIGS, but especially the single stack non railed models ....

      I am a Sig guy as well. I have not looked at the P225, but got my two tone 239 about a month ago. I am going to put the Hogue rubber finger grips on it. I have the Hogue aluminum on it now and like it fine, but want to try out the rubber for the 239. Since my hands are on the big size the rubber grips may offer a better fit for me. My only concern is how the grip will respond to the holster. I still have about 6 weeks before I can legally carry so I can do some home trials with it to see.

      I rotate between my P229R and my P6. Although for the most part the 229 in ,40 cal. is my EDC.

      The P6's are great shooters but you did get bit a little on price cause they are selling on J&G for around 329. Mine is one of the best shooters I have ; I get tighter groups with it than any of my other pistols. To the original poster I carry a 229R everyday. You should consider a quality holster and belt for any pistol you are considering that will make a big difference in how they carry.
