    What are your thoughts on the Sig (Pro) 2022 in 40 S&W? I hear 99% positive comments on the traditional Sig's, i.e P220, P226, etc. Yet, this polymer model seems to be quite a departure for Sig. I have heard negative things about the P250. I have found this 2022 model to be under $400 new in my area with 2 mags. I would use this pistol for a backup HD gun, not for concealed carry. Your thoughts and insights are highly respected and sincerely appreciated.

    The SIG-Pro 2022 is a TOTALLY different gun from the P250. It's been around since 1998 and is well proven on the street. It doesn't have the panache of the P226, but is very reliable and accurate enough that the Richmond (Virginia) Police Department won the National Champion Service Pistol Team award shooting their SIG-Pro pistols and duty 125 grain Gold Dot ammunition at the National Championships a few years ago.

    If you can get one for under $400 new, I'd consider it a steal in today's market. :supergrin:

    As always, your reply was very helpful. After closer examination, it seems that many of the stores that were advertising this pistol had them in their central warehouse, not in the retail shop. Thus, the item was not available for direct purchase. They had to be shipped to my local FFL dealer, at an additional cost.

    After becoming aware of this, I traded for a 2011 production Glock 23 (Gen 3). Like every other Glock I have owned, this one has proven to be 100% in initial testing.

    Thanks again for providing your expertise on this board - I am grateful.
