      Going to own a P229 soon

      Just put a deposit on a P229 two tone .40. Pre-owned, but not a scratch on it.

      Beautiful.

      I will pay it off here in two weeks after I get a pay check from my new job. I could have done it now, but without being dead sure of the time I will receive my first pay, I did not. So I did the next best thing and put 30% down to make sure it doesn't walk away. Price was great.

      Look forward to being a Sig owner very soon.

      Sure thing.

      That's what I joined for.

      Any tips or tricks to cleaning, and caring for the P229?

      This is my first semi-auto pistol.
      I am very mechanical, so I am not worried about anything, but I will be learning about cleaning methods and products.

      Any tips?

      Man, I should have had the gun by now, but my room mate ended up in a bad situation (Not his fault) and was not able to pay rent this time. So I covered it all.

      I can't wait to get this thing. It's driving me crazy.

      229 family heir loom

      Back in 2000 I used a 229 to compete with in IDPA and between practice and compitition I put aprox 10,000 rounds through it with only a few stovepipes. I finished the season placing 1st marksman in the midwest regional, and now it its my home defense gun of choice.

      As far as tips go, for all Sigs, they like to be lubed up. I prefer Slide Glide medium. I've turned a few people on to it and they are converts right out of the gate.

      Sigs are very easy to take down and care for. They aren't picky either. Follow the manual and you'll be fine.
