Nov 2007, P250 compact in 40, LGS had it's November sale and had a Sig rep with lots of offerings and the P250 was just becoming available and selling fast.
It developed issues and wouldn't run properly, to the point of locking back on every round, stuck it in the box and safe and forgot about it. Finally several years later sent it to Sig and they fixed it, but still couldn't trust it so traded it, after validating it worked.
Several more years passed and found a P250 sub compact in the used gun case for $200, snapped it up asap... Still like the P250 concept...
I started a little late, about 7 years ago, wanted a .40 but it had to have a hammer, local GS was on gunbroker with penny auctions. I wound up getting a new 226 in .40 at a very low used gun price, the owner wasn't too happy.This message has been edited. Last edited by: m.p.driver,
Spring 2004 - Sig SP2309. Bought it a couple months before the AWB expired for $425. Loved the sights and it had a fantastic trigger, but I sold it to someone on Sigforum because my pinky finger was constantly being pinched and I started to develop trigger sting whenever I shot the gun. It’s the only Sig I ever had with that problem.

sig P6 1980 in 2008. Traded back to gun shop for USP 40. Which was traded back to same gun shop for P2000sk in 357 sig. Should have never traded back that P6! But love my P2000sk! Now have P220, P245, P229-9, P229-357.
Mine was just shy of two months ago, an excellent condition, marked-through W. German P220 from a fellow forum member. Finally taking it out for the first time tomorrow (life’s been crazy). I sold an optic and grabbed a P226R w/ Exeter, NH short extractor slide and German frame (also on it’s first trip tomorrow). What can I say? I usually jump in over my head, LOL. The 226R currently has E2 grips, but those will likely be going away, I prefer the older style grips it also came with, just gotta source a set of grip screws for them. Next is gonna be an M11-A1 or a P228, not positive yet on which I’ll go with first…
All stainless steel Sig P230.... was trying to buy a handgun for my wife to use in an upcoming women's only handgun class.... (I learned not to do this) At the same gun show I also bought a Walther PPK... (I learned from this too)
that Sig P230 is still one of the finest pistols I own.
On a snowy day in early 1985 at a gun shop outside of Fort Knox, KY. I traded a used Browning Hi Power I got in college for a new P226, serial number U117184. First one I had ever handled. We had some good times together over the next few years.
