SIG Sauer P224 DA/SA Subcompact Pistol  

A quick glance at the P224 dispels any doubts you may have about its heritage. Its looks, feel, and heft scream "P226," although when you pick it up the differences are immediately evident. The P224 is lighter, smaller, and sports a shorter barrel than either the P226 or P229.

<p><strong><span>Neck Index</span></strong><span>&mdash;Draw your handgun and hold it in a one-handed grip, then draw your flashlight, grip it in your non-shooting fist, and position the light against your neck on your non-shooting side. Now as you sweep with your body and your gun hand, your head and neck will naturally follow and so will the beam of your light. <strong><span>Pros</span></strong>: Works with small or large lights. Works well with tail cap-activated lights. Allows simultaneous illumination of both your sights and the target. Easy to search without muzzle sweep. Easy to transition into flashlight strike. Cons: Limits user to one-handed gun grip. Can draw fire to head. Can create excess flash on sights.</span></p>
