Didn't miss the point. I simply said I didn't like it much. I don't care for DAO, so I wasn't interested and am not interested. Part of the reason I don't own a wheel gun. My thoughts when shooting it were, "eh, not what I'd say is up to the SIG standard". I had to keep my thoughts to myself, since it was my buddy's new purchase. I think I just said "wow, thanks for letting me try it out."
The subsequent issues he had just reinforced me being unimpressed with it. I do understand they made changes and got a perfectly reliable pistol. It was still a DAO. If you like DAO and specifically the P250, great! Just because I didn't like it doesn't mean I don't understand it. Just saying the only way (maybe) I'd be interested if it wasn't actually a P250 anymore.

Saw a 9mm NIB for $499 today at LGS, trigger was smooth but seemed a little too long for a revolver shooter. I prefer DAO Sigs, have had several converted. Maybe it was just my imagination. How was that price?

Eh, I don't know. I wound up with two Full Sized 250s, on in .40 and one in 357SIG. I wouldn't mind having the option of picking up a new-production 9mm down the road since I will certainly have mags for it anyway.

No thanks. Never was a fan. I hate the trigger and am still not sold on the "keep your firing control unit and swap your frame" thing. The only thing I wish SIG would bring back are the folded sheet metal slide models.

I carry a P226 DA/SA and I'm certainly no expert. But I like the P250 for less experienced shooters like my wife. She can still ride the hammer when holstering but doesn't need to remember to decock.

Yes, bring it back. It is simple. It works. Love or hate the trigger, but it works and keeps on working. As stated by others, it could be improved, but I think simple is hard to beat in the long run. I'm looking for another one now.

Probably one of the safer pistols out there in regards to having a ND.
+1! They're kinda like a well tuned revolver and if you're used to shooting double action with those, the P250 is an easy auto to transition to. I have one with 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP conversion kits in Compact and subcompact modes. Right now, it's a .40 subcompact.
Take that 10+1 .40 S&W and hold it with a five shot J-frame S&W! Look what you have for a small IWB or OWB carry option and it's very difficult to justify choosing the revolver. The P250 has a lot going for it.

I don't understand why companies keep bringing out new hammer fired LDAO pistols like this (Kahr, PX4-C, 5946, DAK, Para LDA) instead of emulating the LEM. The thing that shooters really get wrapped up in is reset distance, and the LEM gives you LDAO function with short reset. If SIG had done that with the P250 they might have had a lot more success with it.
I think this is a great idea especially in light of the P320 debacle. There seems to be increasing popularity in DA/SA guns despite all the new striker fired designs. Springfield just introduced a single stack DA/SA more should do it.
