Looking for my first Sig(2022) 9mm or .40
Im looking for my first SIG!. First off Its going to be the 2022, Been looking at tons of reviews and it looks like an awesome handgun. The only thing thing that I am looking for is some pointers on what round cambered I should get. I have only found 1 or 2 shops that sell the gun and its only in the .40cal. I was really looking for a 9mm, because Its cheaper on ammo when going to the range etc. The .40 cal at one shop is $419 without tax. Now I have been told the .40 cal round it self sucks, same as the 9mm etc. I dont want the debate there. I am just wondering if I should get the .40 cal or just wait and hope it doesnt take shops 6months-year to get one? Also this will be a carry gun and the more I look at it the more I want to just want to impulse buy the .

Welcome to the forum from Texas. I have the 9mm 2022 and I haven't had a single issue. You can check www.gunbroker.com they have plenty of the 2022 in 9mm and .40. The price may be a little higher by the time you pay shipping and FFL fees but they are there.
A lot of folks like the .40 cal for a defensive round. What it boils down to is "It's what you want".
Either way the 2022 is the best handgun you can buy for the price IMO.

If your firearm is for defensive carry then I would go for the sp2022 .40 S&W. If faced with an adversarial situation I'd prefer the stopping power of the .40 S&W over the 9mm round any day. I owned a SigPro sp2022 .40 S&W up until 11 days ago when I traded it in on the purchase of my Sig 716. I loved that gun...accurate and very reliable. In the 5 years I owned the gun I never had a FTL, FTF or FTE. Kinda regret trading it now but I love my new Sig 716 .

Yes It will be a carry gun and a range gun? maybe 2-300 rounds a year so nothing like 700+ rounds will go threw any gun I own. I would think the .40 cal would be a good defense round , but the prices on ammo are outrages!
bearone2...patience is my weakness lol

I just picked up a Sig Sp2022 in 9mm. We purchased ours for $399 - $25 range rental credit, so it was $375 + tax and DROS fee. Total was $435-ish. Either way, I wouldn't let $50 or so stop me from buying what I wanted. Especially since it's rarely the cost of the gun that is a big factor, but the ammo costs. 9mm or .40 cal, the choice is yours. Both are somewhat comparable and stopping power etc, can be debated for eternity. Only difference (IMHO) is the ammo costs. Factor in 250-500 rounds of break-in ammo and you can easily see how much more expensive on gun will be over the other.
All-in-all, I really, really, really like this gun! Shoots nicely, accurate and a breeze to clean!!! Comparing it to my stainless 1911, it's a much easier gun to maintain. Also, ammo costs are much less on the 9mm vs. the .45 ACP. 9mm is just so...hmmm...cute and the .45 is a 45! LOL! (J/K).

I picked up mine in 9mm a few days ago. I picked 9mm for the reasons you list above. Rounds are cheaper and everyone carries them in a wide variety of "flavors".
Just be aware, it only comes with one magazine. Spares are pricey. I bought a Sig one for $40 (limited to 10 rounds here in CA). Holster options are a bit "limited" too. By that I mean if you want a nicely fitted one, they too are pricey. I bought a Blackhawk Serpa, also $40 (incl shipping). It fits like a glove.
I paid $389 plus tax, plus DROS. Since it's my first pistol, I also had to take the CA Handgun Safety test for another $25.

I for one love my 2022 .40cal, in fact so much so that just yesterday I bought another one!
The reason I like .40's so much is, ammo is typically in stock when others have sold out.
Go look around local shops, 9mm, 45's, and 380's are gone (at least in a 20 mile radius of me) but there is still some. 40's on the shelf.
Plus, almost every police force in the nation is using the .40cal, if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

Well one way to look at it is if you enjoy shooting it at the range a lot then the 9mm would probably be your best bet due to the cheaper round. A well placed 9 will defend you just as well as a 40!

I got mine in .40 and never looked back. Compared to other .40 cal guns I've shot, the recoil on this gun is very manageable. I was given advice from a 30 year LE dinosaur. He's owned and been issued a plethora of guns and said this is one of if not THE smoothest gun he's shot. Said he would take it over the HK P2000 any day.
As far as the ammo situation, only you know your budget and how much you will be shooting. Also, tell friends and family that ammo makes a great birthday, Christmas, or Valentine's day gift!
