    I was going through the gun safe and pulled out a Sig Legion P226 SAO that I bought awhile back, but haven’t shot in awhile. Trigger and reset are phenomenal for the class of pistol it is in. Decided I need to give her some range time.

    Anyone carry a P226? Any insight into your holster choice?

    I love the 226. My first duty pistol was a 226R DA/SA in 40. I only had it a few months (all of the Academy, though), before a G22 was my assigned pistol, from then on.

    I got a 229, but sold it. Just had to scratch the itch.

    Now, I’ve got two 226R’s. A LE trade DAK in 40 and a DA/SA in 357 Sig (it also came with a new 40 barrel). I’m not sure what place they will hold. Right now, they just sit in the safe, with so many others. I’m thinking they would be perfect dedicated vehicle pieces, but I also hate the DAK trigger.

    Post some pics!

    I’m in for the carry discussion. A friend of mine is a retired Trooper and his carry gun is his former duty weapon, a 226R with DAK trigger, in 40. He carries it in a cheap holster. I keep saying I’m going to get him a good IWB, but nothing has fit the bill (and budget) so far.

    I carried mine for a short time in a Crossbreed supertuck. Ultimately I stopped due to the size and weight, and general bulk. I find my CZ P10S doesn't give up much if any performance to the 226 and is much more practical to carry.

    I carried a 226 for a bit. Sold it to a good friend. Now I carry a 228 at times. It carries about the same as a Glock. Weight difference is not noticeable. I use a hybrid leather/kydex holster. It works well. Hides nice even for a slim guy.

    Don't have a 226, but I carry a 229, and a 228 sometimes.

    Sold my P226 but still own an M11A1. Sigs are great firearms but I find that series to be a bit blocky for concealed carry. OWB in the summer or taking a walk in one of our riot torn cities? Perfect.
