    I'm not a sig fan. They are big, heavy, bulky, have a high bore axis, a heavy double action pull, and I also never cared for DA/SA..

    That's the strange part for me...the P226 is larger but I prefer it to the 229. The 229 is all wrong for me. Size and balance are off. But I do want to try one of the new "E2" ergonomic grip 229s.

    I remember looking at the LE direct price list during an armorer class a few years ago. I think my response to the instructor and the rep present at the time was something along the lines of, "You're kidding, right?".

    Up until that time I'd actually been thinking about adding a P239 chambered in 9mm to my working collection.

    They do have a high estimation of the value of their guns, don't they? :)

    All kidding aside, the relative cost is easily justified over the course of a career or owning & carrying one, but it's not as if I didn't have any number of other very good quality guns which I already owned. The "special LE" prices back then just didn't fall within the casual disposable income limits I set aside for buying guns and cigars, let alone the prices I'd been paying for other good guns from other companies after armorer classes.

    Sig survives on its Government sales to the Fed's and local LE. Their sales to other than LE pale in comparison to other Mfgr's.

    I think it's a very fair price on that one.

    I now see that you're retired, but the current active LE price is $609 delivered with night sights and two mags.

    I think I threw the list away, but I recall it being $649 w/o night sights back when I took the class (before retirement). I paid less than that for a new Colt XSE stainless Government after a Colt class.

    I do, however, remember talking to a Sig LE dealer a few years ago. He mentioned at the time that Sig was in the process of dropping some of their LE prices in order to become more competitive for LE/Gov business. Maybe I might have been offered a better deal if I'd waited a while.

    Everyone always says it's worth what people are willing to pay. I think the classic P-series guns are definitely worth $600-700 and some of the special editions are worth $850 or so. But I do not think they're worth a grand plus.

    I bought a Colt XSE Lightweight Commander in 2005 or so for around $1000 out-the-door.

    I'd love to have a Wilson or Nighthawk 1911 too, but not for $2500+.

    Still $729 for a base model 226?

    Assuming the prices are the same as they were last year, then online gun shops like topgunsupply are only $20 more.

    Last year you could buy at a regular dealer and then get the individual officer $100 rebate check mailed to you. Much better deal...

    Sig likes too much money for their bang sticks.

    Sig charges so much because they need 37 springs and levers and pins to do what 1/12th those parts do in a Glock. I've only picked up my Sigs used at significant markdowns from retail. I do love my P228 and P220 though. :)

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Never figured out what other guns can do for me that my $550 blue label Glock 34 with Trijicon night sights and 3 mags can't do. That's just me though. A Glock fits me perfectly and I can shoot just dandy with it. Never saw the need for any other gun, evah!

    Well, when a taser made of plastic is $899..... I guess the Sig price acceptable to some....

    I like my Glock tho.
