Greetings and welcome. I've got a P228 and have shot several P229's. Personally I would go with the P228. They are no longer being produced and the supply is dwindling. The P229 will be around for some time and so you can always pick one of those.
Where abouts are you? I live in Lacey and have shot at Bullseye in Tacoma and the Marksman in Puyallup. I'm trying to get another "range day" set up with coworkers on the upcoming Federal Holiday. Working rotating shifts at a 24-7 facility makes it hard sometimes. Federal Holidays help occasionally.
