The Sig Sauer TACPAC is a one-stop shop that includes an STL-900 light and laser, a level-2 Roto light/laser holster, a Roto light/laser holster, a spare magazine, a carryable hard plastic case and—at the center of it all—a world-class Sig Sauer pistol. Guns & Weapons For Law Enforcement contributor Dennis Adler recently got his hands on a TACPAC organized around Sig’s full-sized P226R, chambered in 9mm. Our trustworthy gun scribe had this to say:
“The exceptional ergonomics and balance of the P226 make this full-sized pistol easier to handle than many of its contemporaries. Designed to chamber hard-hitting .357 SIG and .40 S&W rounds, the gun’s size (7.7 inches in length) and weight (34 ounces unloaded) contribute to reducing felt recoil with 9mm ammunition. The pistol’s longer 4.4-inch barrel also factors in for improved ballistic performance and better accuracy.”
How accurate is it? To find out, Adler grabbed the TACPAC and three kinds of ammo (Speer Gold Dot 115-grain Personal Protection, Federal 124-grain Hydra-Shok and Hornady 135-grain FlexLock Critical Duty), placed a target 25 yards away, assumed a Weaver stance and let ‘er rip. Read the results—as well as a detailed overview of the P226R as whole, including a fascinating discussion of the pistol’s unique Double-Action-Kellerman trigger system—in the October 2013 issue of Guns & Weapons For Law Enforcement, due to hit newsstands August 16.
