One of my favorite pistols, along with a nice little CRKT First Strike
Playing around trying to get my tactical gear photography style down. Oh, had to include my tactical vest with the pirate flag, of course.
The Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG)-Sauer P226 is a full-sized, service type pistol originally chambered for 9 mm Luger. Its design is based on the venerable SIG-Sauer P220. The P226 has come to be known as one of the most distinguished combat pistols in existence because of its reliability and durability.
The P226 is currently in the arsenals of such elite groups as the U.S. Navy SEALs, France's GIGN, Japan's Special Assault Team, the British and Australian SAS, and such law enforcement agencies as the Texas Rangers and Texas DPS, and as of 2006 it is coming into general issue with the Canadian Forces.
