What caliber? .380, 9mm, or .45? There are a lot of models to choose from.
I recently bought a surplus SIG P6. The commercial model is the 225 I believe. The P6 is a West German police trade in gun. It is an older, 8 round single stack, 9mm that is basically a cut down SIG 220. Sorta like what the Colt Commander is to the 1911. I found one at J&G Sales for $411 total for a "hand select". There are other places that might have it for less but J&G had them in stock ready to ship and I got it in 2 days. They have FFLs on file for most of the dealers around here.
I am very pleased with my purchase. It is a typical cop gun. Carried a lot and shot little. The innards are pristine. There is a little holster wear around the muzzle but that is it. For about half the price of a new 239 I've got what is shaping up to be a great carry piece. It digested everything put through it including some Wolff 9mm. It exhibits typical Sig workmanship and accuracy. The one I have was made around 1971. It has an alloy frame and steel slide.The only down sides so far are the cost of factory mags (~40.00) and the fact it is a single stack in a world of high capacity pistols. However, the plus is, because of the slim magazine, it conceals like a dream. It is very lightweight. My Blackhawk Serpa paddle holster and a leather IWB holster for the 220 both work with it although they are a little long. All in all, if you are looking for a good deal in high quality pistol I can recommend this. It's also kind of cool to have the "little brother" to my 220.
You don't know how true that may be, and I do mean literally! sw40g's profile indicates he/she's in the Navy. Are crew quarters often under the ship's bridge?May be living under a bridge for reasons other than homelessness.

I have heard good things about the P250 which can be in all calibers. My complaint with the P250 is that the 45acp double stack magazine only holds 10 rounds. Even my Taurus Pt145 has 10+1 and it fits in my pocket. I was hoping for 13 or more rounds to match the capcity of the XD & Glock 21.
Sigs are easy to clean and very accurate. The P220 Carry is my favorite pistol even though the Stainless Elite is a bit "prettier". :-)
The P226 and P229 and P2022 have good reputations also. I like that you can order them in DAO, DA/SA and SA. The short reset trigger is available also.

I think mags are only $100 each for it. At the price of ammo, the gun is a bargain.
