He liked his so much he picked up an 320 compact in 9mm. Which might end up being his wifes down the road.
Oh I have been looking at holsters, and was wondering if that belly band thing is a good way to carry. Has your experience been good with it?

The only problem I really see, is the transition between the DA/SA function of your P226, and the striker fired P320... as long as you train, and stick to the single platform for EDC you should be all right.
I'm not saying someone can't switch from one to the other effortlessly, the normal person would have difficulty. For SD/EDC, you need to be consistent, or the price could be too high...

Enjoy your new acquisition, and have fun!
You have a good point, I noticed that the P320 won't be the same type of mechanism like you're saying. So I'm wondering how it will feel different than the P226. I guess I will have to make sure I stick to one of them being carry only, and the other home defense only. Hopefully practicing both at the range won't confuse me.

Why did you have to make me go to the Sig site and look at that?? Why?? That Sig logo on the grips, I must have one. Ok, maybe I will have to change my plans and have 7 carry guns, switch one out for each day of the week.

You can go to a subcompact 320 same trigger just a tad smaller. With an xchange kit.

I shipped my 43 up the road this week but went with a new HK for my CCW
My short list for sigs are he 225-A1, and the 320 with a compact frame and full size slide
(320c-9-FLS) Oh And a no rail 226-9
Yes I also considered the HK VP9SK for a carry. I thought maybe since I'm a newb for now that I should stick with Sig for familiarity. But one day I will probably try an HK. And you have a good point that if this P320 compact seems big I can always change it into a subcompact.

The P320C 9mm is what I've been carrying lately. Just can't say enough good things about it.

But, then again, I say that about the P227 SAS Gen 2 when I carry that one.

And then I say that about the M11-A1 when I carry that one.

And...(you get the idea).

I'm right there with you. Got a p938 a couple of weeks ago and then got a p238 for my wife this week. Love them both. The 938 will become my EDC as we become more and more familiar with one another. And this coming from a guy who family and friends have long teased about my devotion to Ruger. I do love my Rugers, but they don't make anything that matches up with these little guys.

You may want to look at P239 in 357. Just saying.

Unfortunately, this is quite normal behavior and the exact reason why seemingly normal people (including myself in that "normal" statement) sit around and pontificate about Sigs.

Pretty shocked that you do not have a 224 yet (or perhaps a 938). Or go bigger and go 220. Dare I mention the impossible to obtain 226 X-5?

I carry the 320c. It's easy to carry and a great dependable gun. You will enjoy having it by your side and knowing you can depend on it. Now it's your turn. Get the 320 to the range and shoot it. Shoot it often. Shoot it until you know exactly how to handle it in a crisis. Congrats on getting the 320c. A great carry choice in my opinion.

Wait, there's an X-5 version of my 226?? And it's impossible to obtain?? I went to the gun show here in Orlando yesterday. It was interesting to be able to see all the models and what they looked like in person. The 238 and 938 still look very similar to me and don't understand the difference between those. Both I think are too small though for me. But I did pick up a really nice cleaning kit that covers all the calibers, and had one of those Bullseye holsters made for this 320. I don't know much about holsters yet.

But at the gun show I did get to see all the different manufacturers and what their guns looked like. It gave me a new appreciation for Sigs, because I could tell just by looking at a lot of the manufacturers that their guns were not made with the same quality. There was one Walther competition gun that was somewhat tempting with their new special type of trigger, forget what that's called. There were big showy ones like the magnums that were obviously nice quality, but of the mid-range handguns, I thought the Sigs looked like the best quality.

238 is .380, 938 is 9mm (and slightly larger to manage it). Yes, there exists an X5 226. I hope you do not develop a desire for one, they are $$ and hard to find.

Wow, I see what you mean. There's one on gunbroker as an auction starting at $5500, lol. It's very nice, but it doesn't look 5 times the price nice, lol. Guess I'll be passing on that.
