    Need New Carry Gun

    I just recently sent in my packet and I will be picking up a new gun for myself.

    I am looking at a Sig P220 Carry Elite.

    Any thoughts?

    I am also open to a Kimber Ultra Carry or a Para PXD LDA compact as well.

    Brown dog,

    I Carry the PARA USA PXT LDA in.45Acp its also Available in 9mm I love this weapon its lite, compact, and has a real bark to it. I also Carry my Kimber CDPll in .45 ACP its also a great weapon the only reason I have the Kimber is that I won it in an Raffle through Safari Club. I couldn't afford to buy the Kimber @ $ 1,418.00 Compared to the [email protected] $ 619.00 based on shooting both weapons with Remingtons HD Ultimate Home Defense 230 Gr. BJHP .45 ACP Ammo The Kimber had a tighter group @ 20 Yards than the Para, but we are only talking about .25in. So based on cost, and reliability I'd go with the Para. You will not be Dis-appointed.Hoped I helped.

    Brown dog,
    I'm sorry I dont know much about the SigP220 Except that it also is a fine weapon, I have the Sig P229 in .357 that actually belongs to my brother, but it is another great weapon I know the Sig P220 Retails for around $976.00 - $1,456.00 depending on what options you go with. Good Luck, Happy Shooting

    I have Sig P220 45acp for the last 20 years or so. Love it, just haven't carried it much, as it is big and haven't found the right rig yet. Got a shoulder rig I like but, it's just too hot in S. Fl. Good luck with whatever you decide on.

    The gun shop gave me a price of $1000 for the Sig P220 Carry Elite Dark. It is a shortened version of the P220. Same grip size, just a shortened barrel plus adjustable night sights.

    Slightly worried that the Para might be too small for my hand.

    I am going to look at the Kimber and see how it fits my hand.

    Semper Fi.

  7. Can't go wrong with a Sig

    Yea, let us know how it works out. Your choices were truly damned if ya do damned if ya don't meaning whichever ya get is a top notch pistol but they each have their perks and you're going to be stuck loving your choice but always wondering. Just goes to show ya shoulda bought both! ;)

    Let us know how you like the P220. I've had an Ultra Carry CDP II for a few years and it's been a great carry pistol.
