Just got it this week. It's a CPO P220 with a one year factory warranty. I have a Mosquito, but this is my first centerfire Sig. I shot one side by side with a Glock 21 a few weeks ago, and liked the P220 better. Weather way to miserable outside to shoot it, so that part will have to wait. It looks like it might be nice enough to get her out today, and tomorrow it is not supposed to rain. In the meantime, I’ve been "shooting" photos of it.

220 vs. G21 ? That's like comparing a Vette with a Hummer. You made the right choice, probably the first of many Sigs. Can't go wrong with the CPO's either.

I put about 100 rounds thru her today. When I thought I was almost finished with the first box of ammo, I looked and noticed an empty box in the back of the pickup. What? I’m almost thru my second box of ammo? I didn’t even remember opening the second box. Must have been having fun. Shot my Glock 17 a little also, but enjoyed the P220 more. I can see right now I’m not going to get away with ordering 3 or 4 boxes of ammo at a time. I’m going to have to order at least a brick at a time.



If interested, I video taped my first 20 rounds, and uploaded it

Thanks. I wasn’t even looking for these, but they were laying right on top of the dirt bank I was using for a backstop, and I couldn’t help but see them. Most of them burrowed deep into the dirt, but these didn’t for some reason.

Thanks. I haven’t done any research on SD ammo yet. I use Gold Dots in my Glock 17, but it looks like peoples opinion on SD .45 might be different. In 9mm, Gold Dots’s are the first to come up in a thread on the subject, but I was looking at a thread on SD .45 ammo the other day, and Gold Dots weren’t even mentioned. Hornady Critical Defense seemed to be one of those mentioned for .45.

Love the P220 and I am sure you will too! There are certainly many different opinions on SD ammo but for my 2 cents it's Corbon DPX for both my 9mm & .45

I’ve got some Gold Dots on order, and I finally found a place to order some Federal HST’s, and I will do that. They seem to be the most highly regarded SD ammo in .45 in most forums.
