Just like me, I see you are trapped like a rat in one of those 10 rnd states! I guess I am fortunate that I can drive to any of the states around me and buy "hi-cap" versions and bring them back no problem.

I suppose I could do the same in Reno NV but getting caught is probably a nono

Do you have a brand or type of holsters you recommend for something this size?

I would never do that. That would be wrong.

I guess the color does it. Not a true Scorpion, as you probably figured out. I'm not a chrome or bright metal guy, and generally like black guns. So, this was something different for me. As far as holsters go, after acquiring a drawer full like everyone else, I ended up with a couple of El Paso Saddlery Belt Slides. While only friction retention, they have the gun tight into my side to the point where love handles and beavertails might not get along. To pull my firearm one would be digging into my ribs with some gusto, plus it has to come straight out, which is 15 degrees forward. I do have some other actual retention holsters I use if I know I'm going somewhere more crowded. These carry tight enough to my side that they are rarely noticed, under my arm at 3 o'clock. While that may not work too well for you, where you live, they work great as a CC holster as well. Incentives to not gain weight!!!

I also have a 686 Plus for when I need my shine on....

Black holster is lined, brown one is not. I would not do unlined again, but the Nitron seems to be holding ok, just seemed to really suck the lube off the gun.

Before these I tried a DM Bullard Belt Slide. That sits almost straight up, very little cant and dug into my ribs from the second I put it on. Quality is great, application not suitable for me.

Dude you bought a Scorpion. It is compete. I'd say a few extra mags is all you really need and lots of ammo.

Two DM Bullard BTB holsters (Beteeen The Belt) Belt goes thru the slot and holster is between your belt and your pants. It works great with the 938 and NOT AT ALL!!!!!!!! with the 226. Just too much iron, gun and belt stick out like a growth on your side, and a big huge gap on either side as the belt comes back to meet your waist. Live and learn. I would have trouble putting this 226 in a kydex holster, tho I do have several and use them with other firearms. Might be fine, just my hang up.

What size ammo do you recommend? Is heavier ammo necessarily better? I understand the springs are stiff and lighter ammo might not be as effective. But I've also heard that doesn't matter and the sig will eat anything I put through the barrel.

It depends... if you have permit to carry concealed or not. If not, and you can only carry openly, then I would suggest a paddle holster, and a safe in your vehicle, in case you tread where firearms aren't welcome.

The first 2 pictures are of an older G-Code Kydex paddle holster, the second 2 pictures are of the Sig Tac paddle holster I have to carry my 2 P226s.

You could also consider something like the Blackhawk SERPA holster, which is also available in Coyote Tan... BlackHawk CQC SERPA Holster Matte Finish w/ Belt loop and Paddle FREE SHIPPING

It comes with both a paddle, and belt loop. Some trainers won't allow them, as there have been several incidents where the shooter, releasing the gun from the holster, tends to insert his/her finger into the trigger guard upon clearing the holster, because of the position of their finger, and have caused an un-intended discharge.

I would start out with some 124 grain or 147 grain, to break it in. Get a case of 1000 rounds, that should take care of breaking it in. What ever you decide to use for serious purposes, try to use their equivalent full metal jacket ammunition for training.

Living in California, I 'm not sure if there any restrictions on what you can fire or not. I would listen to fellow Californians as to what may be required, such as Total Metal Jacketed bullets, so "lead" can't contaminate the countryside!

I assume you mean to use... I'd check with the range you are planning to shoot at, they should know of any restrictions. If there isn't any restrictions, then get what you want to shoot. Googling California ammunition regulations, I guess the "lead free" requirements were for hunting, in the "Condor" zones initially.
