    Thinking about buying another carry pistol, been switching off w/ a keltec p32 and a sig p6 both are great guns, especially the p6 since its has a slim single stack handle.

    Any thoughts of the 250 compact in 9mm?

    You already have one of the best--P6.
    Next would be P228.
    And M&P 9C.

    Is anybody aware of Sig being able to sell the 250 to LE? That would be my question if I were thinking of buying a 250. I handled one and dry fired it and wasn't that impressed and think my 228 and 226 are better Sigs.

    the 250 is known for an unusually long trigger reset, too....

    Yes, the P250 does indeed have a LONG trigger reset....basically the entire travel distance of the trigger...similar to Kahr's CW pistols.

    The compact P250 isn't even all that "compact", either. It's a substantially sized pistol. I've not bothered to compare weights, though, but it's probably a little lighter than other polymer pistols in it's size.

    If you like the idea of the modularity...then I say go ahead and get it. Keep in mind, though, that it'll never be a "target" gun, but you'll not have any issue with it being an "all day range gun". They're rather comfortable to shoot.

    Extra magazines are difficult to find and aren't inexpensive when you do find them.

    Having said the above...I've never shot the compact model. I do own the sub compact and the full-sized, though.

    As far as LEO getting them... I know that the Federal Air Marshals will have them soon enough...to their chagrin.

    If you want a compact 9mm Sig, I like the P228 or P229 over the P250.
