    Sig Sauer P250

    How about that P250? 9mm and .357? Compact?

    Yes, you should have both to flesh out your collection of SIGs.

    P250 is a great gun. especially seeing as the MSRP just dropped from $750 to around $500. built well. accurate , reliable. light weight, nothing to hang up on clothing. available serpa holsters for it. only issue i noticed with mine was the trigger tended to easily rust when carried CC. guess the finish on it is not very moisture resistant. i usually cleaned the trigger every week with solvent and brushed it down. other than that. its worth the money.

    dont throw cheapo ammo through it though. horribly inaccurate with anything less than WWB. i couldnt group less than 5" at 10 feet with tull ammo. neither could my girlfriends father who does pro comps. threw in some fiocchi XTP and was grouping 4" at 25 yards sooo.. it doesnt like junk :-)

    that it does haha i would say its about 5.5 lbs and at least an inch of travel, doesnt snap untill the trigger is ALL the way back. and the spring is a bit weak on the reset

    My wife carries a P 250 Compact in 9mm.

    She likes it and shoots it well. It took her 400 or 500 rounds to really get the trigger sorted out after shooting 1911's. But she is very comfortable with it, and has reasonable controlled pairs regarding speed and accuracy, but most importantly she can absolutely hit her targets at 3 to 15 yards. Most of her shooting is on the full-sized silhouettes. On a recent outing she kept 50 rounds inside the 9 ring shooting 3 round strings, 50 rounds in the head shooting pairs.

    I'll second the warning about ammo, my wife's gun does not like the aluminum cased Blazer ammo at all, my reloads function without issue (115 gr and 124 gr) as well and PMC, Magtech or Win White Box.
    She has about 5000 rounds through the gun in the past 2 years.

    How would you compare the P250 trigger to the DA mode on the CZ-82 trigger?
    So the trigger is metal? and requires special attention for corrosion control?
    I'm thinking about buying the 9mm P250 and then the .357 slide conversion kit. My 3 current carry guns are a CZ-82, Glock 26, and GP100(4").
    I'm hoping to make the P250 my primary dual use(OC/CC) gun. Do you think I'll like it? Not sure what holster I'd get I like 3 slot leather OWB holsters a lot.

    Just my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt, but I've always been of the mentality that the P250 isn't a real Sig, LOL. Call me old fashioned, but I figure if I ever buy a Sig, it won't be a polymer-framed DAO model. I'm going for the real deal, DA/SA steel frame baby! If I want a polymer framed DA pistol, I'm getting another Glock (Already have 2), another Ruger SR-series gun (Got 2 of those too), or a Springfield XD.

    YMMV
    Carry on!

    I don't consider Glock truly double action personally. The striker requires cocking to be fired.

    you will like it. just if you store it. store it with a silica gel pack. wont have rust issue then. and if you CC , wipe it at the end of the day with a rem wipe or some lube on a cloth.

    i would more of reccomend the .40 and the .357 vs the 9mm and the .357 on the sole basis of training and recol. the .357 is almost the same size as the 9mm but the recoil difference is shocking. if you train with the 9mm. and become accurate with it, then use the the .357 for SD. your going to have a rude awakening in accuracy when you use the larger caliber. the .357 recoil closely resembles a .45acp in my opinion. looks small but kicks like a government mule

    the .40 S&W recoil more resembles the .357 sig than the 9mm does. *granted the .357 sig kicks like a .357 mag* it is a closer match. NTM it takes a heavier recoil spring to handle the .357 than the 9mm will come with. but a .40 S&W recoil spring will handle both :-)

    I'm prepared to practice with both, just like when I practice with .38 and .357 with my GP100.

    Do you think .40 is better than .357 sig?

    .357 sig has more penitrating power. does alot better on car doors, windshilds, and heavy clothing. the .40 has more powder, and a larger surface area and a slower velocity. i would rate them about equal. each has its strengths and weaknesses.

    only advantage .40 really has is price. right now at cabelas here in maine a 50ct box of .40 runs about $24 where as a 50ct box of .357 sig runs almost $37-$40 and winchester silver tip haha thats over $70

    I've seen steep discounts on .357 from time to time. So if one bought a p250 in .40 would one simply switch the barrel for .357? And you're suggesting practicing with .40 and some .357 would be more suitable for carrying it in .357 than practicing with .357 and 9mm for carrying .357?
