I carry my 226 quite often, with a Mec-Gar 17 round flush-fit mag and stoked with 124 gr +P Gold Dots.

P239 in .40 is my personal carry when home, although I've been carrying a Smith 642 a lot just lately (bought here on Glocktalk, in fact).

My favorite Sigs are the 229 and 220.

I would most likely carry this after a 1000 rd's or so.
I think with the right ammo a 9mm makes a good carry Caliber.

BTW the weight as far as a carry gun makes no difference to me I carry a 3LB 1911 or a p220 now.
I'd get the stainless. I just got one and it's a beautiful gun. I carry a P226 or P229 daily, depending on the season.

I have a P229 that I carry, sometimes I worry that I am going to screw it up. It is a pretty gun and I would hate my self if I f%#+ it up at all.

I carry my P226 when wearing the right clothes. My P232 otherwise. I'm going to buy a P239 soon and it will likely be carried most. Just don't like to carry my Glock. I prefer DA/SA. I enjoy shooting Glocks though.

Might make the P224 a regular carry when it comes out.

Sig P220 Carry - I still carry it on occasion in a shoulder rig. Living in rainy Seattle this comes in handy.

Carried a SIG for 15 years, on & off duty, numerous training courses, and different competitions. Love the SIG P220 .45 and the SIG P239 9mm.

In 2005 I switched over to the Glock 19.

Last month I visited my dad in WA state, got a chance to shoot his SIG P239 9mm - still really like that gun

Sig p229 in .357 or 40. No rail. LOVE it. Carried glocks, XDM compacts, etc. just something about the p229 that feels right to me. I do want a p239 in 9mm just for fun though

229 SAS (Gen 1) in 357SIG is my new EDC. Replaced the wood grips with Hogue rubber (until funds allow for G10 DAK grips), and kissed my Glock 32 goodbye.

Glad to hear it. Many of the folks here would collapse from exhaustion if they carried a 1911 across the room.

As for the 226 decision, I'd go with the stainless. It weighs about the same as your 1911.

This 6 year old has over 20k rounds through it, much from 2 and 3 day training classes.
