Great package- the 229 is an excellent platform and is reasonably concealable, should you decide to do so. I have a 228 (basically the same gun but in 9mm) that I've had for over 10 years, and it still is tight as a drum and shoots just like new, after 10,000+ rounds. The 229 will serve you well, and the kits for both .22 and 9mm are excellent, since they are more like Sig replacement parts vs. a cheap conversion kit.

Agreed, Sig has fantastic quality on their pieces. My only issue is the DA/SA operation. I'd rather SA with an actual safety mechanism for carry. DA/SA just completely screws with my trigger control. I have to adjust after the first shot. Plus, if you ever have to shoot someone, disengaging that safety is one more conscious decision, one more action, one more chance to reconsider. Part of why I don't like Glocks.

Great! I feel a lot better about shelling out 1k after reading that, Vl8r. :D

Good point, PW...never thought of it that way

That's why the Sig has no safety, because of the SA first shot, BUT it does have a decocking lever, and the DA pull on Sigs is very smooth and not too heavy. I am a big fan of the "condition one" carry for the 1911, as well, but that requires disengaging a safety while drawing. It's really a matter of personal preference and training/drilling with each gun. If you really want to go modular with multiple calibers, look at the P250, but it's a lot more $$$.

In most cases, you're stuck between a DA/SA, a DAO, or a striker-fired DAO like Glocks, which I don't like all that much either, OR the newer DA systems in the XD (M) and the P250 (both of which are different) which are really nice and smooth.

I do like what Para does to the basic 1911 design, including that DAO model. I've shot one like it, and it does have a great action for a DAO, though it feels odd having that style of trigger on a 1911. Paras are very nice pistols, and you could not go wrong with any of their models, but they are pricey. Still loves my Kimber, though.

I just don't like the variable pull. I place a finger for a long DA pull, and it'll be too far up for a short SA pull. Weight doesn't bother me all that much, it's length of pull. I just prefer a constant.

And PO does nice things with 1911s. Double stacks are awesome. That said, a good single stack is all most people will need. If I can't hit you with 7-8 rounds of .45, 14 aren't gonna help much either.

And agreed V, hinge triggers on a 1911 is just weird.

And I want a snubby for some odd reason. .44 mag/special maybe. Or .357/.38.

It's complete!!! (well, just waiting for the 5.11 case) Received the cheek pad today.. Modded it to hold 3 mags instead of giant CF rounds. I'd like to duracoat the barrel and stock black then stencil green/tan/brown, but I can't bring myself to destroy this beautiful gun. :/ Maybe the 22mag once the stock is complete....

I'm the same way, which is why my interests in handguns usually focus on striker fired pistols, DA revolvers, and the 1911 design (though I don't have one... yet)

Target from the range the other day. 10 yards, point-shoot double taps. Picked the locked and loaded pistol up and double tapped. Put down and repeat. Burned the last mag and a half fast, because I had to leave, those are the low and right ones. Didn't pull the trigger right on the fast strings. Still not bad for a beat up rental Sig and dirt cheap ball ammo.

You hung the target on the door and then shot it? You have a lot of work to do in order to patch up all those holes in the house. I guess it's pretty convenient though. I'd love it if I could shoot inside my house. :dodgy:


Shooting in the house would be nice would it not. I just remembered to bring it in from the car, and I didn't have a camera at the range. Taped it to the nearest flat surface.

Definitely going to invest in casting and reloading equipment when I get my tax return. Money savings are huge for reloading 9mm, if you cast your bullets it costs damn near nothing too shoot. Would make my .38 special cheap too...

Doesn't look that hard either. Hell saw a youtube video of a guy doing t with a pot, what looked like a gravy ladle, and a mold.
