    Got a chance to handle some SIG pistols .

    Stopped at the local gun shop today and handled the SIG 229 sas gen 2 and the SIG 229 sao. I liked them both. They didn't have the 229 in 9mm. Now I have to do two things. Pick which model I want and wait till March.

    If you're going with a 9mm (and it's a perfectly legitimate choice), you may want to look around for a P228. There's something...mystical in the feel and balance of the P228 that makes it, IMO, just slightly better than the P229 (as a purely subjective matter). They are still out there, though not in too many gunshops. The interwebz may be your friend.

    In any case, the P229 is an EXCELLENT weapon, and will allow you more caliber, trigger, and configuring options.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
