    P229 (9mm)

    Well about a month ago I decided to buy my first SIG. I purchased the P229 9mm and I cannot be more happier with my choice. It's a great gun and fun to shoot. It is not a good CCW weapon in my opinion, because its very large and heavy. The P239 would be better for carry. However, it makes a great home defense weapon. Another proud SIG SAUER owner

    Good luck with the 229. I have a 229 Elite and love it. You're right about carry. Little heavy and hard to conceal for a self defence wepon. I have a friend in the DEA and he carries it as his duty wepon and has trusted his life to it many times. He never leaves home without it!!

    Congratulations. The Sig P229 is a fine pistol.

    I certainly can't complain with the CPO 226 I picked up a while back. Put maybe 300ish rounds through it sofar... No issues but my riding the slide lock. It's a 100% great shooter. More accurate than I am for sure. Gotta friend looking for a 9mm... I might sell him this one though and either bump up to a 220 or over to a 239... Haven't decided my priority though, a .45 for the home, or conceal ability.

    I've been a 229 fan for quite awhile now. I have a 40, but the 9mm is the one that I think I would keep if I could have only one gun. It's the one that I've used to requalify with for my CCL last time out.

    I like the 239, but its grip is just weird in comparison to the 229.

    Glad you like it. I love everything that Sig puts out (though why they won't make a truly concealable 9mm is beyond me), but the 229 in 9mm is my absolute favorite.
