Which Sig is Your EDC and why.

I'm fairly new to the forum so I hope this has not been done to many times. I currently carry the P938 in the summer, and the P320c in the winter. Both IWB at the 4 o'clock position. Just curious what others are using for there EDC.

Welcome to the forum. I have several Sigs going back 25 years and love them all. I EDC a M11A1, AIWB in a MultiHolster. It's proven to be ultra reliable after 35,000 rounds. I've shot it in many different conditions and never a problem.

I've never owned a gun long enough to put 35K rounds through it. That's impressive on its own!

I have owned & carried several different SIGs (227 Carry, 224, 250C, 290RS) & also carried an HK P2000SK for awhile, but currently a G3 G19. I carry AIWB with a Raven Vanguard. Lightest, lowest profile setup I've ever tried, with 15 rounds on board, without carrying an extra mag. I hated on striker fired in general, & Glocks in particular, for a long time, but I've come to believe that there may not be a better all-purpose pistol, made by anyone, than a Glock 19. YMMV

The last Sig I carried EDC was the Legion P229 b/c it melted into my hands. Ultimately, however, I was unable to get as comfortable with it as my standard EDC gun, so I went back to that. Today, I'd be hard pressed not to carry the P320C, though. It is a very nice package that competes with the Glock 19 nicely, IMO. That said, I believe that if I were go go back to a Sig I would choose either the MK25 or an original model German made P226 simply b/c it is the gun that put Sig on the map. Next to the Glock 19, the P226 is the gun that fits me best, especially for a DA/SA gun.

I use a P238, Walther PPK/S, or a S&W M&P 9 Shield.

Depends on what clothes I'm wearing.

238 EVERY day. Depending on dress some days as primary, some days as backup. 224, 229, G27 are all in the rotation.

I now have a choice between either the retuned and modified 239 in .40 or the new to me .239 SAS that I got from a member here. Either Walnut Grips or Tigerwood Grips. Both are 2 tone, Smooth as silk actions, and more accurate then I am.
If it is Winter, and I feel the need, I grab the SAS 229. Same manual of arms, bigger, more weapon load.

I carry a P239/9 in a Milt Sparks VMII. I'm in CA, so there's no real disadvantage to a single-stack with only 8+1.

I have a lot of Sig's and love them but there is only one I carry. My favorite Sig is the 229 but it's too fat for me to carry well, besides I like cocked and locked.

I wrote this in another thread...

I believe the that a 'self defense' pistol by definition means inside 7 yards (for some maybe 15 yards), or 21 feet. Or lets just say close. That means you do not shoot someone with a pistol at 30 yards and call it self-defense. Then there are the FBI statistics most of us read that the "average" pistol fight lasts 2.5 ~ 3 seconds and at most 2 to 3 shots are fired and the combatants are ~10 to 21 feet apart. So what came out on top for me was a carry pistol first and home defense pistol second.

So what is the deciding factor in choosing a carry pistol? I think that the important variables in deciding a carry gun for myself was to look at:

1. Does my handgun function reliably under all conditions? This means can I produce reliable results inside 7 yards consistently?
2. How quickly can I produce and fire the handgun? That means shove my fist out holding my handgun toward my opponent and pulling the trigger?
3. Secondarily can I maintain roughly the same position and hit the opponent a second time in the center mass if needed?
4 Defensive ammo over 9mm.


So I tested my handguns and they all proved reliable. Then I tested then to see if they were accurate enough to hit center mass from 7 yard distances. When I tested variables 2 and 3 above I ran into results I had not thought about? My P220 and P226 were tied for being my most consistent shooters (with the P229 a close second). However, with my smaller hands I was able to produce and fire my P239 way quicker than the other three pistols on first and second shots. It was not even close. Then there was all that debate about ammo and stopping power in my mind.

Of the four variables I had to decide which was most important! I must have read 1,000 pages on this topic on the web. My head was spinning until I read a quote that said “...if the perp gets you first what good is your fancy accurate pistol with super ammo...” So the "winner" of the carry pistol contest by a large margin (in my eyes) is me getting my first shot off!!!

So in the end my P239 became my carry pistol. Not because it was more reliable and accurate. But because it gave me the best first strike capability given my physical limitations. All is not lost though I still love my P220 .45 ACP. It is beside my bed for home defense. And who knows maybe a future P320 will win the battle with my P239 as a fast draw in the future...

I carry a Sig 320c in the summer months and a Sig C3 in the winter. Both are great guns and I have full confidence in both getting the job done if need be.

P320 Compact in Sig 357 is my standard EDC. I also have it in 9mm and 45 ACP. But I tend to carry the 357 99% of the time.

I also have a P229c and will pick up my P227 SAS Gen II on Tuesday from the LGS.

I suspect that I will continue to carry the 320 and use the P229c and P227 at home.

The why of the P320 is weight and ease of carry. I find it more comfortable on my hip and in my hand that pretty much anything else I own. Just works quite well for EDC. I have other polymer guns, but the 320 wins out for me.

That and I don't worry or wart over it as much as I do my other guns. I just let it be a workhorse.

I have just one Sig. It is a 229 Legion in 9 MM. It replaced my G19 for EDC. I shoot it much better than any of my Glocks, I use a Vedder IWB Light Tuck and carry between 12:30 and 3. I added one of Vedder Corba Quick Release gun belts and the two work well together.

Mine is the 1911 2 tone Ultra (45). Carrys nice and I shoot fantastic with it. Never so much as a hiccup from this gun. I carry OWB in a Stoner FBI holster.
