    Decisions Decisions

    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to the forums here. Anyhow, I am looking to buy a Sig P229 on my birthday next month. I still can't decide which model though. Either the SAS Gen 2 or the Equinox in .40 cal. I am leaning towards the SAS since its a little cheaper and has more functional features. I also plan on some concealed carry so the anti snag will be a major plus. Let me know what ya'll think as I am by no means a Sig expert.

    Thanks

    I was between the SAS Gen 2 and the Elite a few months back. Went with the Gen 2 as it was going to be my carry weapon. Don't regret the decision.

    Same boat here. I currently carry a Glock 19, but I've always wanted a Sig, and the P229 in .40 looks like the one for me. Finances are an issue, but my local shop as layaway (20% down, 60 day to pay off the rest) so I may go for that.

    Thanks guys, I think I will end up going with the SAS. My local shop sells the SAS brand new for $918 and the elite for $950. I imagine their Equinox price will be around $950. I would rather have the snagless profile and the SRT than the bling factor, as this too will be my carry pistol. I found the SAS for like $840 online but with shipping, tax, and FFL transfer it will be pretty much the same price as buying at my local shop. Plus, I'd rather support local business if I can.

    Welcome to the forum from North Central Texas.

    Post a picture of your new gun when you get it.

    I own four P229s now and find them to be the best fit for me, personally. Given the two you've listed, I would recommend the SAS Gen II. The SAS Gen II has the SRT that is well worth the decision. The Equinox is nothing more than a P229 with "bling" and a less than stellar TFO front sight. Even though they sport the Sig Custom Shop logo on the slide, there's nothing custom about it, aside from the polished flats and nickel controls. The TFOs are fragile and make for a poor choice (insert my opinion) for weapons sights on a defensive weapon. Best of luck.

    Sorry I've been a little late. Picked up the Sig last Friday and have put around 600 rounds through it. I love it so far. I did end up with the SAS by the way. Here is a pic, sorry its a crappy cell phone picture but oh well.

    Thanks Guys. I'm torn, I got a Dan Wesson Bobtail Commander 10mm, new on layaway. Thinking of selling it when I make the last payment...I don't know if I NEED it right now. Any thoughts?

    Hang on to it, at least for a while. DW has discontinued the Commander Classic Bobtail for 2010 and prices on them may go up as demand (not that there's much demand for a 10mm) increases, or more accurately when supply decreases.

    If your gonna sell it - I suggest that you not shoot it.

    I agree with VAMarine - there's not much demand for 10 MM.

    Good luck.

    I think I am deciding to keep it. And I disagree with the "there's not much demand for 10mm" comment. A lot of people, at least around here love 10mm and have trouble finding ammunition. However, there's not near the following for 10mm as there is for let's say .40 S&W. Also, the reason I picked it up was because my local dealer found 6 of them somewhere hidden, and sold them for a GREAT price. It's the two-tone, SEXY gun. I think I'm going to keep it, I have a policy with guns, and that is to not sell them. Lol.

    Not only is Dan Wesson discontinuing the "CBOB"... but they will also not be producing any 10mm in 2010, for any model. After that was announced there was quite a surge in 10mm buying for those who follow Dan Wessons.

    Keep it. Don't worry about ammo. It's tough to find right now, but there will be more on the shelf soon. Keep your brass too. If you decide to reload, you can use the same die as .40

    Actually, now that I reload, I have a use for a 10mm!!!
