    Welcome to the SIG cult, my friend! I love my P226 (40), have some fun with and let us know how it shoots for you!

    And give us a look!

    here's a quick photo



    i found it at Bass Pro Shop. it was previously a CHL class weapon, and was a CPO weapon with fewer than 200 rounds through it. best part, they put it out about 30 minutes before i happened to show up. paid $525 for it. i was planning on going with an SW99, but this was my dream 9mm and i just couldn't pass up on such a deal.

    took it for a little spin today at the dfw gun range. i love it. i was shooting side by side with a couple of friends shooting a Glock 17 9mm and a Glock 19 9mm, as well as a Glock 23 .40 cal. all i can say is that the kick on this gun is negligible. the heavy steel frame absorbs all the recoil compared to the lighter glocks. man o man am i in love with this gun. just got done stripping, cleaning, and oiling it. can't wait to get back out there. i highly recommend this to anyone considering a 9mm. well worth the extra cash.

    For a high capacity nine, it just doesn't get much better than the P226.

    I noticed the same thing when I compared the Sig 229 in 9mm with the G 19.
    Better recoil absorption by the heavier frame gun. It also shot better than the Glock (or I did, I should say, using the Sig). A curious thing I find is that the difference between steel framed guns and glocks reduces as the gun gets bigger. My G 34 does not have more noticeable recoil for me than a steel framed gun such as the CZ 75. But I do notice the difference in the smaller guns. I would love to get a 226, perhaps an Equinox, and I may do so in 07 if my budget can stand it.

    I think you got a good deal on your gun.
