Guys,

I've never liked or owned handguns for whatever reason. I've finally decided that I need a handgun in my collection. I figured that I probably wouldn't carry concealed very often (ever?) but I'd much more likely try to do some 3 gun matches. With that in mind I bought a Sig P226 Sport II SL. Is this a good gun? It'll be here soon and I'm pretty pumped up to get it.

Kevin

I didn't spend as much as you might think (bought it used). I'm going to invest some serious range time in getting good with it. What kind of groups do pretty good shooters get with a 9mm handgun at say 15 yards?

LOL, yes, its a damn expensive, damn good, damn accurate gun. Once you know what you are doing, you will be shooting ragged holes with that at 15 yds. Spend more money on training and ammo than on the gun next time. A regular P226 is an outstanding shooter in its own right.

(Where can I get one like that used?)

Thanks guys. Gunsamerica.com, gunbroker.com, sigforum.com classifieds, & AR15.com EE handgun forum are all good sources for used Sigs.

Well, this one is a sweet gun but its just a tad too heavy to lug around every day in my day planner. I'm going with a lighter FN FiveSeven for that use. This Sig attracted some gawkers at the range though. I'm not sure I've ever seen a cooler looking handgun.

Congrats on the SIG! I would skip the FN, hear it has problems and is not a good choice for carry as reliability is the main concern. Buy another SIG like the 229 or 239 and ammo is much cheeper! Have fun!
