    I am in the process of rearranging my collection. I want more firearms that I'll use..

    I have come to realize that my favorite sidearm, a Sig P229 (.357 sig) is just a bit too fat for comfy conceal carry.

    These two new offerings from Sig and Kimber look to fit the bill.. Sig is 20 oz, Kimber is 17 oz. Both have virtually the same dimensions; 5.5 long X 3.9 high X 1 wide. ie; Small.
    I know there are other, smaller choices out there, but 9mm is as small as I want for a daily carry piece.

    Might be a long shot as they're both new , but has anyone had the opportunity to shoot one of these??

    They are too new, I don't think I've even seen either of them in gun stores yet. Haven't really been looking though...

    No personal experience with either.

    But i have heard the Kimber Solo is awesome, the Sig P290 pretty much not.
