    Which Sig for Concealed Carry?

    Greetings All,

    I am a Sig fanatic who just recently turned 21. The logical next step in my life is, obviously, to obtain a concealed carry permit and begin utilizing it. I LOVE the 220, 226, and the 229 (all of which I have shot in varying calibers) but am unsure about which one I should purchase as a CCW. I'll be honest, I am biased in favor of the .45 220 but have never attempted stuffing it down my pants and keeping it there for several hours. Thoughts???

    Just to give a little background, I'm 6'6", 250 lbs, and live in Seattle where layered clothing is a way of life.

    Thanks!

    Have you thought of a Sig 239? Single stack mag makes it a little thinner, easier to conceal.

    Layered clothes make it easy to hide, but I actually get tired of carrying anything heavy whether on my belt or shoulder holster or horizontally in the small of my back.

    I've carried in all of those positions when I was a policeman and to me they got old fast.

    I now carry a Sig Sauer P230 in .380 caliber and it's light and easy to conceal.




    My other carry gun when it's cold and I've got bulky clothes on is a Kimber Pro CDP II in .45 caliber, it's kinda heavy, but a great gun.

    As you think about what you want to carry just remember heavy gets old fast.

    Good luck on your search.

    +1 I have the P239 SAS Gen 2 and the slim design hugs the hip a little better than my P229 and it is a little shorter and lighter. It is a sleek SIG with snag less custom work on the slide and trigger guard.

    Downside (to some) it only has a round capacity 7+1 in 40 S&W (my caliber)/357 and 8+1 in 9mm.

    Great shooting hand gun. I was worried the accuracy may be lessened with the shorter 3.6" barrel but that wasn't the case. Shoots as well as my Glock 23 and P229.

    I just recently purchased it and I carry it in a fanny pack during the summer and this winter I plan to carry it either in the Sig CC coat or on the hip.

    I'll be the oddball and say P6! It's not too big and conceals well, and you can find them for half the price of a new Sig, yet with all the Sig goodness! Just a thought.

    I carry a 229 sometimes. It's not too big or heavy. The P6/225 also would carry pretty well.

    I'll be carrying my 228 as soon as it comes. Thinner than the 229, although only available in 9mm

    I'm 6'5, 235, so we're close to the same build. I carry a Sig P229 SAS Gen 2 in a Galco Royal Guard holster all day without any comfort or concealment issues.

    If you would be satisfied with .380, the 232 would fit the bill. If the demand keeps up, they will probably make the 232 in 9mm., it's big enough.

    I own and carry a Sig Sauer P230 or a Sig P232 or a Walther PPK/S - all shoot well and are very deadly if you know how to shoot them accurately.

    If I were to CC a Sig, it would be in the following order:

    P250
    P239
    SP2022, or whatever it is that they call the Sig Pro.

    Lm a similarly sized fellow seattle resident and i carry my p220 everyday. works just fine in an iwb holster also love my galco vertical shoulder rig. The gun conceals surprisingly well but I'll be honest I'm getting rid of it for a 228 or 229 in 9mm. I find the weight isn't an issue but I've been carrying it at work for 2 years too so I've gotten used to it...

    I just bought the P250 in .40 S&W for Concealed Carry. I will carry it on the hip with the Sig Paddle holster for the 250 and see how that feels for a while or until more carry options become available.

    I carried a P220 carry for over a year with no problems. Now I carry a G36 and didn't realize how heavy the P220 was. After you get use to the extra weight it will be unnoticeable and you will miss it when its not there.

    The P6/225 is a dream but you're limited to 8 rounds/9mm. If that's an issue my next choice would be 228/229.
    Well actually my next choice would be a 239 but you're still limited by the single stack mag.

    I just picked up a P6/225 for $400 at the gun show this weekend. It's a little rough looking but for the price figured I'd give it a chance. In terms of feel and balance I like it a lot. If it proves to be a shooter then it would be worth having the slide refinished I think.

    I have a p229r with the rail and sig nite sights plus an extra hi cap13 rd mag

    The gun for me is heavy but to me the accuracy makes up for it

    I think the added wt over other guns makes it very stable

    Heard you can also get a super hi capacity mag that holds 17 rds

    Mine is a 9mm

    The 17 round MecGar mags are hard to come by these days since SiG has gone to an 18 round format. X-Grip is workng on a new adapter that would allow these to be used with a cosmetically appealing appearance. Right now you can use these magazines without ANY problems. They just stick out unattractively from the base of the grip. When the new X-Grip adapters arrive, modding the 18 round mags will be easy to accomplish.

    Here is a picture of my P228 with the 17 round mags and the X-Grip adapters.
