I've owned several Sigs throughout the years, starting some fifteen years ago with the purchase of a P229 in 357SIG. Not long after I purchased the 40S&W barrel, and had a nice little dual-caliber handgun! I upgraded the guide rod and spring with a Sprinco recoil reducing guide rod system, and it turned that handgun into a sweet shooter! Several years later, I purchased a P226 in 9mm. Great little pistol! And it even fits the holster I had for my P229! Years later, I was forced to sell all...

Great little pistol! And it even fits the holster I had for my P229! Years later, I was forced to sell all of my handguns over a short period of time in order to make rent, etc. Hard times. I was young... I swore never again would I sell my guns for reasons like that. Many years passed and I didn't own a single handgun, until last year when I really wanted another Sig handgun. I saw a P229 SAS Gen2 in 9mm - the exact model I had wanted for a long time! I bought it, and it's been great! Accurate, reliable, and fits my hands just perfectly. It looks great in the handmade black leather holster I had made for my first P229 some fifteen years prior! Very sentimental, and reminds me to never sell my guns again. Just recently I made yet another Sig Sauer purchase, this time a rifle. A SIG716 in 7.62x51. Such an awesome, accurate, amazingly well-made rifle. Now the government is telling me that I shouldn't be able to own my rifle. I'm going to do everything I can to stop this legislation dead in its tracks, and I can only hope that I can get support from the firearm manufacturer I have long considered my favorite, Sig Sauer, in helping us to defend our rights and our liberties, from this ridiculous legislation.
Andy I just Bought a P229 yesterday after several weeks of looking. Thank you for your input making me feel more comfort in my purchase of this particular hand gun :-)
I really like mine; it fits my hands perfectly. The SAS Gen2 treatment is great. Like I wrote above, this is my 2nd P229. I'm sure you'll love yours too! What cal did you get? Also today I got to take the SIG716 out to the range. My, what a SWEET SHOOTER! No more kick than an AR-15, everyone that shot it agreed and was impressed. I may have inadvertently sold two additional SIG716's in the near future by letting friends shoot it!!
I have owned SW, glock, ruger, colt and many other hand guns.. None of them shoot as well as my sig p220 45cal. And being retired SF...i put it through its passes.. couldn't ask for a better weapon out of the box
Do it, fuckers.

Hopefully Sig will stand up with us, however don't be too disappointed if they don't or are ignored, as they are not a US based corporation.
You're right, Sig is a German company, but Sig Sauer Inc. is based in the USA and determines their US distribution. My P229 is all US-made, so I know some Sig pistols are made entirely here in the states. You may be right, Sig Sauer may disagree with us, or ignore us entirely. I think it is worth the effort to gather some signatures and present our request. I'll do my best to put forth a convincing argument :)
I carry a Sig P-226 on duty on the job, and as my concealed...yes, I know some think a full size weapon is difficult to carry concealed, but it can be done...Don't leave home without it.
"When it counts", is right NOW!
done and done...
As a long time customer I expect Sig to do the right thing here and help ensure our 2nd amendment rights are not infringed.
It is really getting scary now. I think B Clinton could not his gun controll past but he chose to end or limit ammo. I have to check that out. Hiliary, our next president....her shirts are out alreadt...wants the UN or some other international organization to rule the US.
