There is a time when one cannot carry a properly sized pistol. This could be due to social or operational restrictions, but the need of being able to take a defensive position instantly remains. Often what the pistolero has done is downsize to a micro caliber such as 25 ACP, or even a 380 such as Walther PPK or one of the commonly seen economy guns.
The problem with these is two fold. First is the issue of caliber. While nobody can argue about the efficiency of a 25 auto in the eye, that mythical eye shot may not be available, and the operator must instead rely on a traditional torso shot. That immediately brings up the deficiencies of the micro calibers. Second is the issue of quality. Many of these economy mini-guns are built to be bought and rarely, if ever, fired. That creates a situation where an operator will face danger, at the worst time, with an untested weapon firing a round that is expected to not accomplish the task. This is an uneviable position to be in, and now there is an answer.
THE P290 SUB-COMPACT 9MM, is SIG's newest polymer pistol. Designed to be the ultimate in concealed carry. This unique 9mm pistol is the perfect small defense handgun that meets the demands of today’s gunmen as a backup, or non-permissive environment pistol. Emminently easy to conceal, and with a double action only trigger that allows for holsterless carry, the weapon is reminiscent of the Rolex-like Rohrbaugh pistols at a fraction of the price.
