Advice on Carry vs "Standard"

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum and need some advice/direction.

I've had my heart on Sig P220 Carry Elite Stainless. I have found a P220 Elite Stainless (non-Carry) for a really good price.

From pictures I can obviously see the difference in barrel length, but pictures often don't give you the "real world" story.

For those that have both or compared both is the additional length THAT big of a deal? Though I certainly don't plan to use the P220 as my primary carry weapon, there may be occasions where I do want to use it for that purpose. That being the case should I absolutely get the Carry version or is the difference in the "real world" fairly negligible?

Thanks for any advice for the new guy.

Carry something smaller and target that sucker. If you really want to, you can carry it. Just gotta plan it out. My choice for carry is dependable and low priced because of wear and if it ever came down to use, it's probably gone.
I shoot my 229 and carry a CM 9.

Absolutely...as I mentioned this won't be my primary carry weapon by any stretch. However, on the odd occasion that I do carry it just wondering if the standard model will be THAT different than the carry version.

roughly 1/2 in barrel and grip. A little difference makes a big difference. Thats why I carry a single stack and spare mags. A 1/4" in width is a lot to me.
Lots of people carry 220s 226s Glock 19s etc. If you want to carry it you will find a way. My CM 9 fits in my front pocket.

I normally carry my P238 with corbon ammo. It's small easy to conceal and I also carry an extra mag along. I absolutely love this little pistol. It hits where you aim it, even out to 25 yards.

grip is the same, both have full size frame, carry has shorter slide/barrel.
