congratulations!

I pick up my Sig P226R 40SW next Saturday. This will make my 4th Sig. P220R Beavertail, 1911 TTT, Pro 2009, and P226R. I have been thinking of buying a Glock 21, but haven't tried one out as of yet. I am sure you will like your new pistol. :thumbsup:

Congrats! Sigs can be just as addictive as Glocks, or more so.

Congrats! I've got two P220's and love them. Pondering on a 226 next!

I adore my 226 .40 S&W. You just can't go wrong with them.

My next Sig will be an .40 X-5, but I had better get it ordered STAT before it plunged off the California Mommy List of approved Handguns in April.

Enjoy your Sig...unleash the hounds!

I don't see what you guys see. To me it's as ugly as the hi point .:p

ditto; post pics

While the sig sauer isn't built for looks- its definitely built to operate when the pretty models start to ftf, fte, etc. If I want pretty, I ask a grrl on a shooting date.

I have about 10 Sig P series pistols and how I wish they shared their prices w the hi points. I think their beauty lies in their accuracy and durability.

How in the world are you guys getting the beavertailed Sigs? I didn't think any were on the approved list.

Long time Glock guy, now a reformed Sig man.

Got a P220R SRT low profile w/ beavertail couiple months back.

Last week I got an old- 1992 P226 in 9mm- just shipped it back to headquaters for the SRT trigger upgrade.

Yeah, trading up to Sig from Glock- ALWAYS a good thing.

You made the right choice. The P226 is one of the best combat handguns ever made.

I'm not understanding why everyone thinks the Sig is ugly. I think it's BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I just got a CZ 75B Compact in .40 . It felt great when I picked it up before I bought it. I got it home and put it next to my P6 with a Houge overmold grip. It LOOKS and FEELS the same. It is almost exact with the overmold on the grip. Love them both, and will get a 226 in 9mm in due time.

I'd have to agree... Sig's are a work of art! If you want ugly, well how about that brick of an ugly... well, ya'll know... G***k!

Seems to be a popular gun nowdays, ever security guard that I have run across has a P226 in .40 strapped on it seems like. I never got why .40 is so popular but to each his own.
The P226 is an awesome gun however, I want one in .357SIG.

This model isn't made anymore BUT Dan Wesson [now] makes a [very similar] model called the PM7-10MM, which is great [though I think it is not on the approved list].

congrats! i'm not a huge fan of plastic guns (glock > hk), except for my fn57. then again, i got spoiled by the p220st (imo, sweetest sig ever). i prefer the p229 in .40sw to the p226 in 9mm, but that might change if i ever get a p226 in .40sw. i definitely want one of those p239 gen2 sas, though. too bad those aren't on 'the list.'

unfortunately, i just lost my p228...when my gf decided that that was her favourite gun to shoot. :eek:
