    I want it in 9mm. I've seen a few 228's for sale locally for like 6-700. What about the 229?

    Looks like this new P250 is the hotness at only 24.6oz but it's not Cali compliant :wtc:

    While I love my 229, it's definitely not the smallest or lightest.

    you missed the entire point of that - it's not that the STATE bans them or not, its that the companies dont want to pay for them to be on the approved list.

    i understand it's fucking retarded to have an approved list in the first place, but in the end the ball is in the dealers court about whether they want to have business in CA or not.

    So 239 is smaller than the 228?

    yes. 239 is a full-compact little single-stack in 9, .40, .357Sig, 228 is a compact 9--the predecessor to the 229

    Yeah, according to world.guns.ru, the 228 weighs 825g with empty mag and is 180mm long, holds 13+1 of 9mm
    so in English, that's about 7" long and 1.8lbs
    the 239 is 132mm and 775g, or 1.7lbs and 5.2"

    I hate that. Who the fuck is California, or any government, to say I can't sell my legal product to private citizens?

    And in many cases, who is the government to say whether or not my product is illegal?

    [cali politician] but it's the Safe Handguns list! It's protecting you from cheap "Junk guns" like Saturday Night Specials that could malfunction and hurt you! And it's keeping kids safe! It's For The Children!![/cali politician]

    Sig 239 would be your best option, but with only holding I think 8 rnds you may be better off cost wise to get a 225/p6, since they are cali legal

    It's worse than that. There are 2 "safety features" that are now required for new guns that most don't have before they can get on list. Some interlock thing, and they must visibly show when there is a bullet in the chamber. Older guns already on the list can stay on.

    you didn't know about the magazine disconnect? new guns after--oh god I don't remember, it might be starting this year in January--have to have a magazine safety so the pistol won't fire without a mag inserted. Of course, LEO guns are exempt.

    If you really want a 250 you might want to call the DOJ and see if it is going to be added to the list soon. There was an issue with one of the earlier batches of P6 pistols coming into the state and amazingly the DOJ was pretty helpful in informing people of its progress in getting listed.

    does the 250 have a loaded chamber indicator?

    lulz I went to the fun store today to "just look around" and ended up buying a Kimber CDP instead. 239 was still too big

    if you are all warm and cozy about a small 9mm, then why not go with a g26?

    i'm not provocating any type of war between glock and sig, but why not go with what is small, 9mm, and PROVEN to work?

    if you are a tried and true sig fan, cool. :)

    brand loyalties run deep and i understand that.

    i'm just suggesting the glock in case you have not considered it. :thumbsup:

    ETA: nevermind, i just saw you bought something today. kimber is good. you will be happy. :)

    I have a Glock 19 and Sig 226 already. I love both of them. Didn't go G26 because it's so similar to the 19 and doesn't have a manual safety.
