    Just got back from the range. First time shooting a "new to me" (used) P229. Shot 150 rounds of Tula BrassMaxx. I had some Failures to Feed and/or failure to go into battery. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to these problems. They were seemingly random. Happened with all 3 mags. It didn't...

    After a delay from NICS, I finally brought her home. It's a used P229 that I found online on Gander Mtn. Paid $499, no shipping or transfer fees. Thought it was a pretty good deal. Came with 3 mags, case, and original manual. It's not the West German P228 I fantasize about, but it will do for...

    Just won a sig 229 .40 cal on gunbroker. It's damned expensive and is unfortunately going to be impeding on my ammo hoarding over the next few weeks, but it is one fine piece of hardware. I qualified with one back in the LE academy I went through, and fell in love with it. Can't wait to pick it...

    Went to my LGS to see what one of my least favorite handguns was worth on a trade-in. I was pleasently surprised with what they offered my in trade-in value (they actually gave me more than I paid for it, so things are working both ways with the increased prices). Needless to say I saw this...

    I'm looking for educated opinions about what's a better choice. My CCP is pending. It will be for carry as well as range and HD. Other criteria includes the fact that I can get the SigP229 for 50% off MSRP as I have a connection to the company so they will both be about the same price. Opinions?

    I just bought a P229 Extreme yesterday. I'm having a little bit of a hard time trying to find a holster for it. I need some clarification, some give options for P229, P229DAK, P229 E2. I'm not sure what to pick. Also I'm probably going with a OWB for right now if anyone has any recommendations...

    I've made a decision on a pistol and wanted to get some advice. I've bought long rifles from Barretts and Sheards in the past - both good stores. Will order the Sig new, and want this business to stay local in the Batavia/Rochester area. Any other shops I should consider for a new Sig? I...

    I should be getting my pistol permit in a few months and want to know if a Sig P229 is a good beginner gun.

    Just bought a Sig P229 Platinum Elite. It was brand new, I got a good deal on it, and I have always wanted a Sig. It's the 9mm version. I know that there are some Sig owners on here. How does it shoot compared to the G19? Once it gets here, I will post some pics of it and let you know how...

    So I have a family member in PA that I visit pretty often (once a month or so). They're going to purchase themself a pistol that I can use while I'm down there to shoot and then it will be gifted to me once I escape from NY. What is the general thought on the Sig P229?
