I have the P229 in 40. The nice thing about buying the 40S&W is that you can convert it to a 357sig or 9mm with a simple barrel change. The 357 sig uses the 40S&W magazines and if you convert to 9mm you have to buy 9mm magazines.
My P229 had a DAK trigger when I purchased and I converted it to DA/SA. I like the DA/SA much more than the DAK.
