I never shot the sig 229, but i do own the Sig P250 40compact and I like it alot. But the P250 has a DAO trigger and some
people like the trigger and some don't, but I don't mind because to me the trigger pull is very smooth. My opionion the
recoil isn't that bad at all either on my Sig P250 40compact. This was my first handgun and so far I fill I made a good
choice. But I will suggest you go to your local gun range rent both handguns and see which one you like best. Hope I was
some help to you regarding this situation.
