What price range are you thinking? I have been lusting over a Sig X5 for a while now.

Haha...just because it is pretty doesn't mean I can't shoot the shit out of it! Are you looking for a steel or polymer frame? What caliber? Are you wanting to carry it? It is hard to recommend something when you don't know what you are planning to use it for.

I love the M&P pistols. My SIG is my favorite though. There is a reason they cost twice as much. Stainless Steel Slide, Aluminum frame & Aluminum Grips (Hugue G10)

SIG P229

They are nice handguns. Can't go wrong with any of them - even the Sig Pro.

I have a 229 SAS 40 for off duty carry. ITS HEAVY, but I'm on point with it, it fits my hand like a GLOVE.. and shoots like a Cadillac rides...nice and smooth..

As much as I like my M&Ps, the Sig-Sauer P226 is a heckuva nice handgun. Mine is a plain-vanilla 226R in .40S&W, but it shouts 'QUALITY' every time I take it in hand [the M&P shouts "UTILITY"].

If the P227 [45ACP] every makes it to Canada, I'll probably jump on one....just because.

Here's a few of my favorites from around the house.

The P226 has a large frame grip (thus a relatively long trigger pull - short trigger helps a little bit), that for me is difficult to shoot fast and accurate double-action single handed, especially with just the support hand.

The P229 in .357 Sig is a fabulous gun....it will wear you on the range after 50 - 100 rounds though; slightly smaller than the M&P FS.

Because of it's small size, the P238 gets equal carry time with a Kimber Ultra CDP II; I like it's 1911 style controls.

This is just not true I bought a spankin New Sig Mosquito at the gun show a month ago, It could NOT Cycle 3 rds in a row of any ammo. That little gun is an epic POS. Now, I Don't think Sig actually makes that Model. I Agree Sigs are Very Nice, I don't know how they get away with or why they put their name on that little gun. Very Dissapointed in it (Sold it the next day for a $70.00 Loss)

I used to have a P226 that I sold a few years back. After shooting 1911's most of my life, I just could never get used to the trigger on the 226. That is probably the reason that all of my full size M&P's have Apex FSS and Rams in them. They are very well made pistols and about as tough as you can get, however, I don't see my rotund body over in the Sand Box, of the jungles of South America anytime soon lol! All of my pistols shoot better than I do and are much tougher than I am lol!

Anything duty size or larger will serve you well.

Single actions are particularly sweet:



Sig P220 Elite SAO.

The correct spelling is "SIG" and not "sig" since it's an abbreviation of 3 companies.
I owned the SP 2022 and the P226 and could never get used to the "double action/single action" trigger. I much prefer the striker trigger of the S&W.
