Concealable guns continue to be among the hottest products at any gun shop, but SIG Sauer wanted to deliver something a little extra with the P224.

Something of a scaled-down version of the company's popular P229, the P224 is small, lightweight and easy to keep on your person, which are the minimum requirements for a concealed-carry firearm. It also sports chambering up to .40 S&W and can support 10 or 12 round magazines—giving it the power and capacity to serve as your "anytime" gun, too.

The P224 is a reliable, potent firearm that's suitable at your side or protecting your home, and it was an easy decision to make it a Gun of the Week.
