    2012 was the best year ever for Mr and Mrs Keoking, so I treated myself to something I normally wouldn't buy.

    Sig Sauer P220 Stainless Elite

    I don't have a camera worthy of a pic. It looks just like the images at [ame="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=667&q=sig+p220+stainless+elite&oq=sig+p220+stainless+elite&gs_l=img.3..0i24l5.2094.12397.0.12600.35.17.4.14.13.0.89.985.17.17.0...0.0...1ac.1.2.img.m3hrHeM8cPc"]link[/ame].

    Not sure if I got a good deal ($1079 plus tax), but I'm happy with it.
    I'm not a safe queen kind of guy. I have a safe full of Glocks and one 1911 that would be pretty if it didn't look like it had been to war. I don't even know how to baby a gun so that it still looks new. I hope I don't do anything stupid to jack it up.

    According to Sig the MSRP is $1368, so $1079 is very reasonable. I like the rosewood grips, Short Reset Trigger, night sights and beavertail . A P220 Stainless Elite is a very nice pistol.

    I have a P220 carry for edc. The P220 elite stainless is on my wish list. Might even sell my 226, 229, or 232 to fund the purchase. I have the sig bug for sure and definately favor 45 auto.

    I was going to go all the way and pick up a P220 X-Six on Gunbroker, but the recent gouging caused the price to change from $2500 to $3000 overnight. I might pay $2500 for a rare and exquisite $2000 pistol, but there is no way I would pay $3000.
     
  13. Congrats. P220s are great guns and the elite models are beautiful.
