I have a 226R SCT as my nightstand gun:

I also have a German triple S/N 229R with an ilaflon finish, and a NIB W. German Nickel 228.

 

The frame of classic series SIGs is aluminum or stainless and won't rust.  The slide of newer guns is stainless and nitron and ilaflon both are pretty good finishes so it won't rust either.  What will rust like crazy are the grip screws but replacement with an aftermarket version will cure that.

 

You can find a ton of 228 police trade-ins right now for ~$400.  Many people feel the 228 is the best pistol SIG has ever made other than the 210.  However, 228s do have carbon steel slides that can rust.  However, $400 for a trade-in + $175 for a modern finish that the gun might need anyway and will prevent any rust isn't a bad deal!

 

And you can get a super decent 1911, an STI Spartan, for ~$630.

leftnose, what are the reasons that you relegate the M&P to game gun status?

Who says that I do?  I have two M&Ps, the 5" 9 Pro and a 9FS.  The Pro is a game/range gun.  The FS is my SHTF gun and resides in my Go bag with 6 magazines.  No concealed carry in IL but for that, I wouldn't carry any double stack gun anyway.

 

The 226 is my HD gun because of the 20-round magazines and the night sights already on the gun.  Neither M&P has night sights.  This is about to change, though, since Brownells is finally shipped my Warren Tactical 3-dot nights sights yesterday.

my SHTF/nightstand is a full rail SA TRP Pro, have a Baer Custom Carry, and a Kimber CDPII Ultra too to round out my 1911s.  

 

As for 9's I love my CZ SP01 Tactical for a far as ergonomics go and my hard chromed HK P7M8 both sporting Nill grips.

I work with a Wilson 1911 about every other year--just for familiarization. Same thing with SIGs, usually 226/228 in 9mm or .40. All have been reliable as *hell*.

 

I seriously miss my early New Hampshire 220ST, and as far as I'm concerned the SIG of today has lost its mojo. When their slide releases began having catastrophic failures, I moved on. Sad, I'm over it already.

 

I'm looking forward to transitioning to the M&P. To tell the truth, after years with the 1911 I had no problems adapting to the Glock handgrip angle. Glocks are natural pointers for me.

I started getting into firearms a couple months ago after a stint with archery and the first things I picked up were a M&P9 and M&P15-22.  I think next on my list is an Spikes Tactical AR.

My current 22LR target rifle setup:
CZ452 small barrel, bushnell tactical elite 10x, harris bipod

 

 

Precision Target Rifle

 

 

 

Couple of weeks ago I picked up a glock 22 and glock 27.

I've had much smaller guns, but the glock 27 is by far the most comfortable gun I've ever worn on my side.  After 5 minutes it disappears for the rest of the day.

The two glocks shoot pretty nice too.

I load my 27 with 9 rounds of 0.40cal winchester FBI white box overrun I picked up at cabelas for 16$ (50 180gr bonded waterproof JHP bullets).  Love it!

 

I was afraid I would find the little 27 to be snappy, but I don't.  Only the american eagle 155gr bullets hurt, all others are comfortable.

Springfield Range Officer 1911

 

It shoots a lot like their TRP but you don't get a lot of the nicer ergos, and finish that you do on that model. The sights are also not that good and the slide isn't milled for the really nice Novak sights (dovetail)

For you military guys Glock offers huge discount - I just got a new G19 w/ three mags for $425 (+$25 NICS fee).  At that price I don't think you'll find another pistol reliable enough for CCW.

I think CZ and Springfield can do it too. I haven't had a stoppage with my XD9 and the new XDS single stack is coming out. Although that is quite a substantial discount.

Its called the blue label (blue sticker). Some authorized leo dealers shift around magazines and prices, which causes the confusion with the red sticker etc. There is also a deal for retired military.

Here's the G19 set up, and its AmeriGlo .180" rear/w no white outlines. The increased light on both sides means faster acquisition. I like.

I just put a new sig sp2022 in jail today. then gonna start on a AR15 i been planning on doing for a while, can't wait

I've been using the $90 laserlyte adjustable cartridge for dry firing my 9mm and 38 snub.  Its a great tool that gives instant feedback for practicing trigger control, and after testing this I don't see a need for 22 LR trainers.
