Sig Sauer P250SC

I have recently purchased what looks like will be a decent small concealed carry gun. I have used several different smaller guns, Ruger LCP, Ruger LC9, Kahr Mk40, Kahr CW9 etc., when I need something small to carry. I normally carry 5” 1911, but depending upon what I am wearing it can be difficult to conceal. There are times when smaller is better.

As I was looking for my next “small” gun I decided that I wanted to have a minimum caliber of 9mm. I have used .380 ACP in the past but I want a bit more power with the option of using +P ammo. I recently read an article where a concealed carry individual shot a criminal four times in the chest with .380 self defense ammo and the criminal lived. As I stated in an earlier blog, you need to hit a vital area to stop someone – the larger the caliber the greater the chance of hitting a vital area.

I was going to try another Kahr, the PM9 to be exact, but I keep seeing the Sig P250SC and I wanted to give it a try to see how it would work. There are a couple of things I like about the P250SC, the price and getting three magazines with it. Not every 250SC comes with three magazines, I have purchased from one dealer who is throwing in the extra magazine. Since these magazines for the 250SC tend to run from $35 to $45 this was a real bargain. This particular gun will retail for $415, that is the out the door price which includes tax and shipping. The Ruger out the door retail would be $370, but it only comes with one magazine.

The P250 is a bit larger than the Ruger and Kahr. Like the Kahr, the double action trigger on the P250 is nice. I have heard complaints about the double action trigger on the P250’s, but it is better than the Ruger and not quite as good as on Kahr’s. It takes some getting used to, but I do not care for external safeties on a carry gun so it suits me fine. After running a few magazines through it and it shoots well, definitely more than adequate accuracy.

If you are interested in trying one of these send me an e-mail. The offer of three magazines is only through the end of August while supplies last. If you are interested in me shipping it to your FFL, contact me for pricing. Thanks for checking out the blog and be safe.
