    I really love my Sig P-290, but I also plan on buying a Shield when they become more readily availably!! But my Sig cost me $405.00 delivered with the holster case and two mags with the laser! of of Auction Arms!

    Take a look at this video: [ame]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R__qknnpsTI[/ame]

    The P290 appears to be heavy and thick. I had a Shield 9mm and now have a Shield .40 cal. The P290 reminds me of the PX4 and Nano. I was originally interested in these until I held them and saw their size. I'm wearing the Shield now in a belly band in the house and I can barely feel it. The Shield is only 1"wide and light weight. Go to YouTube and look at gun reviews.

    I've shot the Shield, didn't float my boat a whole lot.

    Only fondled the 290 (but I've done it a lot). The 290 definitely is beefier and heavier, but it feels better in my hand. Bout the only thing about the 290 is that the trigger has to be ALL THE WAY back, which if you have long fingers I could see being a problem.

    Overall though, 290.

    I have held both guns and the 290 feels good in the hand, heavy but good and solid.

    I didn't like the trigger on the original Sig 290, but the 290RS trigger is much improved. I carry one very often. It's not really a pocket carry, though.

    Haven't tried that model Sig but I can say I LOVE my M&P Shield. Shoots great, so easy to carry, very good price point. What more could you want? My primary carry is still my Glock 19 but this gun is great for those times where I want something a little smaller.
