Already thinking about another...

Just bought my first sig a couple of weeks ago... Got it about a week ago

( Sig P 226 alloy)

Shot it twice..200 rounds each time...

Going out again tomorrow.

Really want to get my wife to try shooting ( she is not excited about it... But I want her to know how to "just in case" she needs it)

My 226 has fairly wide grips which I love ( did I say love???? Can I say it again?)

But..I think they may be too wide and too big for her.... She may not them...

.. Thinking of a 229 so she can get comfortable.

Unfortunately you cannot rent guns in Illinois without a foid and she's not quite there yet..

So... Buying is my " only option". He he...

See how the " logic " works???

Good luck with your P226. The wife may like a P239 9mm single stack for someone with small hands. You tell her it's for her .

E2 grips have made my 226's and 229's a lot less bulky feeling.
I actually have a pair on the way right now for my MK25.

I always start planning my next purchase on my way home from my latest acquisition.
Never too early to start planning. Including the wife is a smooth move. I used the same trick years ago. She loves to shoot and it's cost me a small fortune to keep her in ammo. But, she understands my love and obsession for nice guns.

Would you consider....

....a .22 conversion kit?

Great way to get started with minimum noise and recoil and build confidence.

My wife (average size grip/hands) started out with a P226 - it absorbed enough recoil that she was able to get over flinching faster.
