    With the recent shootings, I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and get another one of those much despised "semi automatic firearms". I recently traded my Glock 23 for a 357 Blackhawk. I'm now trying to decide on which Sig 220 to get. The full size and Carry appear to be identical, with the exception of the barrel length. Anybody shoot the 220 compact? I have small girly hands. Also, anybody conceal carry with any of the models? I'm running around with the SW642 right now for pocket carry.

    The P220 is a full sized pistol, in smaller hands it is still comfortable but a little bit of a reach. Excellent firearm.

    If you have smaller hands, look at the P226 or P228. Don't have any first hand experience with the P220.

    The P239 might fit you as well, smaller overall but 9mm.

    Thanks, but I'm planning on sticking with the .45 over the other calibers. I'm not as worried about the reach, as I am with the concealment of it. I'm 5'8 and 155#'s, so I want to make sure that I can properly hide it. The glock 23 wasn't a problem to conceal, even with a T-shirt. The sig is .4" wider than the glock

    Well, in that case go get the P220 Compact or P220 Carry and give us all a range report. :)

    I have the sig 245, which is the older version of the sig 220c. I hunted down a 245 because of the slightly shorter but fatter grip, it just fit my hand like a glove. I have shot full sized 220's and the compact and my 245. The shorter grip didn't make much difference to me on accuracy, but the felt recoil is a bit more but not by that much. My 245 is my edc for winter time and is easily concealed with the shorter grip with an iwb holster.
    The other thing is if you get the compact you can get the standard 8rd mag and get the xgrip mag covers for a comfortable full grip.

    I've got small hands and love my P229 Enhanced. Great gun and nice size.

    I pack an older 220 in a crossbreed supertuck.
    Not much difference between a 1911 size wise.
    Rumor has it that a double stack. 45 is in he works called the p227, with 10 round mags.

    I have heard good things, but have not shot, Sig's 2022 - their polymer line. Competitively priced and Sig quality.

    I have had 220's full and carry. I now have a 2022 .40 that I bought for under $400. Very accurate and a great trigger. Ken
