I'm looking at getting my wife a new pistol, and was wondering how these hold up. It'll mostly be a safe queen, probably 200 rounds/month at most.
I'd love to get her a P229 in 9mm, but CPO's are hard to come by.

Of course, she also likes the Glock 19 and the SA XD9. The Sig fits her hand the best though, at least the 229 does.

The SIG Pro is a great hand gun! It is a little big though and probibly to big for her.

Get the 229. The Pro's are not as user friendly as the Classic Line.

How so?

Having had both, the P229 (which I still have) is a better fit for my hand. SigPros are great weapons, but they are chunky. Spend the extra for a P229, or just buy a used one from CDNN

Would a P239 fit her hand better?

Just a thought.

i picked up one of the certified pre-owned (it was a demo gun) sig pro 2340 in .357 sig for around $400 plus shipping/xfer to PRNJ... at 10yds i was holding a 1/2" group first time i shot it... i had my girlfriend holding a 2" group with it on her first trip to the range...

i've heard a lot of people bash the sig pro's as "value" sigs... implying you aren't getting as much... 1/2" group right out of the box with 2 high cap magazines and the full sig warranty for $400 is one hell of a value in my opinion...

have your wife try it out and see if she is comfortable with it... mine has interchangeable grips... one is molded plastic (similar the magpul miad grip) and the other is rubberized...

I've had a 2340 in .357 Sig for a couple of years and love it.

It's more accurate than I am, that's for sure.

I had a 2340 in .40S&W a couple of years back and I loved it. IMHO it was a standard SIG- accurate, reliable, easy to use, smooth operating- except it had a polymer frame and cost only $450.00! When I moved back to NY from FL, I had to sell her. It broke my heart to do it, but I'm going to get a new one real soon to fill the emptiness I still feel...

I like my .40cal Pro. It cost 450 with 3 hicaps. I think the rubber grip is larger, I like the plastic one fine. I also do not have huge hands.

Well, the grip area is too bulky for her. She doesn't like it, so that gets ruled out.

She likes the Glock 19 though, so that's what she wants.

Thanks for all your responses!
