P226 is a good pistol. I like my 229 better just for the slightly shorter barrel. If you absolutely positively gotta shoot someone with a pistol caliber bullet, 10mm or 40S&W is the way to go. FBI didn't change because the date was wrong. FBI changed because 9mm is easier to shoot and not as hard on the pistols as 10mm or 40. Most people don't shoot 40 or 10mm as accurately as they do 9mm because the recoil is 'sharp'. And they beat a gun to death. As some of the early Glocks about that. At the end of the day, theyre all pistol bullets and pistols suck for shooting people with. Theres no such thing as hydrostatic shock and wound cavity, etc with pistols. All there is is penetration, bullet placement and to a lesser extent permanent cavity (the size of the hole). Short answer is Sig is a good pistol. A little pricey but if you can find a deal, get it.
