    In .40SW, P226 or P229?

    If you've shot/owned both, which one feels better to shoot?

    I have the XD-9 in the 4 and 5 inch versions. The 5 inch is actually a little nose heavy that it seems harder to keep on target. I (and several other XD-9 owners I know) seem to like the XD-9 4 inch better because it handles better. Does the same apply to the P226 & P229?

    I'm not trying to compare sight radiuses or what not but just the overall feel of the gun. I have no plans of carrying either one concealed. I'm concerned mostly on how they feel when shooting.

    When I get a chance to shoot both at a range, I will. For now, I'm hoping you guys can provide some feedback.

    For me, I went with the P229 only because I planned on occasionally carrying it, and because my hands are on the small side. I didn't notice too much difference when I shot them at the range. They're both fine guns. Buy the one that fits your hand best, as it will be the one that you shoot best.

    Are the grips the same size and shape? XDs in 9 and 40 are.
