I'm sure I'll be very happy with both guns. As for pictures ... it might be awhile before I can get to that. Yes, I did buy both in .40 cal. Here in California I can only carry 10rd magazines. So buying a 9mm, didn't have in my option any benefits over .40 cal other than cost of shooting while practicing. I'll look for a good conditioned P228 as my 9mm platform and besides I have my P239 in 9mm.
