New Sig Owner (p200 comp. SAS and p938)

Hi fellow Sig owners - (sorry for typo in title, should be 220)

I'm new to Sigs and these are the first firearms I've owned (though definitely not the first I've shot).

After trying out what seemed like thousands of guns, I finally got to the Sigs, fell in love... and here we are. The 220 will likely be (one of) my CCW gun (big+heavy, I know, but it's so sweet...) and my wife is going to carry the 938.

We've put a lot of rounds down range with them in the brief time we've owned them. These are both really fun to shoot, we've had no FTF/FTE so far, and the accuracy is great.

Happy shooting!

PS - Does anyone else carry a 220 compact IWB? I'm looking for suggestions on holsters, preferably one that doesn't take 6 months to get. I've gotten some feedback so far (thanks SigsT7!), but looking for as much as I can get.

Hey Smithcok,
Good looking pistols!
I was looking at Comptac holsters today.....because I have owned and loved the MTAC IWB in the past, and was curious as to why they do not make one for the 220 Compact.

They do make one for the 220 Carry (same slide dimensions as the compact) BUT...the holster is designed for the pistol that has a rail....which could scratch the finish or fit poorly, if used for a rail-less 220????

They do make a holster for the P245.....which is only slightly thinner than the 220 compact.....so this might work!

If you have never worn an MTAC....they are SUPER comfy! (leather back plate is smooth and spreads the weight over a larger area.

So, I am a bit of a holster freak, and will probably try one of the MTAC, add it to my OWB from Ritchie Leather and my IWB from Occidental Leather.

I tried Crossbreed, White Hat etc. I ended up with two. For the small ones I use a smart carry that is just under by belt buckle. Very comfortable, and noone has ever noticed it. For the bigger I use http://n82tactical.com/n82store/
It is lower cost and works quite well. I bought the tuckable for a 4" 1911 because it holds the gun with elastic rather than the hard shell of the pro version.
Everything I have except the Glock 30sf fits it well. From the 938 to the 229.
I only wish I had gotten the 5" 1911 because the sight on my 1911 tends to hang up. I can use it carefully. The 229 and 938 fit perfectlly. They have several sizes, and I know a 220 is in the choices.

(I guess maybe I should have put this in the new member forum(?) Sorry mods, feel free to move it.)

Thanks dwg13013 - this whole process seems to be quite difficult, as everyone is shaped differently and has different preferences. I guess I need to go to the local shop and try some things out just to see how it sits on me. I know I'm facing an uphill battle, as carrying the 220compact (aka, a brick) will be hard for a wiry frame guy like myself My belt barely holds my pants up, let alone a heavy gun. Part of this process will involve buying a purpose made gun belt.

I just moved to Michigan from Massachusetts - and the gun laws here seem much more reasonable. The process of buying a pistol was straightforward and easy (yet secure and involved the local PD of course).

Welcome to MI!

Yes, the laws really aren't too bad for purchasing here. We still have some quirks...

Good luck with the holster. I hear there are some good choices out there!

Dillion Precision makes an Elite bag. It can be carried over the neck at waist. On the belt or hand carry. It will hold a full size gun or brick and mags. It doesn't look gun so it can be very visible and nobody will take notice. I don't feel all that comfortable with IWB so sometimes I use it. I often have camera equipment so people I know just assume camera.
