Of you can't afford a p226 but want a sig go for the SP2022. If you want a non sig striker fired pistol, I would recommend a S&W M&P 9. The m&p pistols are about as good and it gets in the striker fired polymer pistol world in my book. I have had one for years and haven't had it jam once even with cheap ammo.

I don't consider an "entry" priced P226 to be all that expensive, at least comparable in price to other brands out there today. What is the price range you are looking for? Have you considered a used SIG? Several of those out there at good prices and you can save some money that way, not only in the initial price, but also reducing the number of rounds needed to get it running really, really smooth.

I don't think you will ever be able to pry my P229 of P226 away from me. I also like my CZ SP-01 tactical. Another well made handgun, not quite the trigger out of the box as the SIG's, but a nice shooter. Then there's always the tupperware. But this being a SIG forum, I'll control myself here.

A little more insight to what your application is would be helpful. Plenty of input will be forthcoming, provide some framework within which you are trying to stay.

Thanks, well 700-800 max is my price range. This would be just for general range shooting as I have a Springfield 45 for home protection. I was looking at the p250's but everyone said they are junk because of a gov contract turndown or something. I was looking at the CZ's and they look and feel good but I guess I have been hypnotized by the reliability of my cc sig and am wary of straying away when making a substantial purchase. I'm the type of guy that finds a company I like and trust and than remain with them. i shot my buddy's MP 40s&w and wasn't overly impressed to be honest.

I'd say save a little more to get something you'd really like.

My recomendation is to find a gently used P226 if you want the 'best' full size 9mm. I shoot mine (a 96 German) very well; not much more recoil for me than a .22 and I purchased it no long ago for a tick less than $600. I also have a P99AS Walther and love the ergos but I don't shoot it near as well as the Sig.

As a "die hard"226 manI may be a little biased,but I say go for a used or new 226 even if it means having to spend a little more than you have budgeted.You can always cut back on meals and other non-essentials to come up with a few extra dollars.
