    SIG is coming out with the SIG 224 which is a subcompact version of the SIG 229. It should be released this coming year. A friend carries the SIG 239 as his off-duty gun since he has to carry a SIG, per his department. Personally, I like the SIG 229, but absolutely love my SIG 228. I think once you shoot it some and get acquainted with it, you will like it.

    I was issued a M11 and thought it was awesome. I put a ton of rounds through that weapon and it was flawless. I bought Glocks when I got out, but I would carry a SIG in a heartbeat. 239 sounds like the answer for your backup gun.

    Always carry a knife-they are handy to have
    Always carry a reload-You probably won't need it but it is good insurance .

    My 229 .40 is my EDC. I have no issue with the weight and love the trigger. It's a great choice for a duty weapon.

    My edc is a Sig Sauer P220 Carry. Is has identical dimensions to the P229, except of course the P220 and is a 45acp pistol and carries 8+1. Many people say...."why would you carry a 30oz gun when you can get you a small, pocket 9mm. Well, for those folks that shoot Sigs (and me), we know that all the classic Sigs (P225, P228, P229, P226, P220, P239) shoot like a dream. I have a dozen or so pistols (Glocks, H&K, Colt, Ruger, CZ), but none have the great trigger of the Sig and none (except for the CZ) are as accurate (to me) than the Sig. I also have a P226 and it's a sweet shooter also. You'll love the P229......thinking about getting one myself.

    I was choosing between the SW9 and Sig 226/229, and picked the s&W 9. Then I got a Sig Mosquito 22 to play around with at the range and not go broke. Now I wish I got the 226/229 instead of the S&W.

    They don't get any better. On or off duty, you find it's a great carry.

    Congratulations again on a terrific firearm!

    The question for many comes down to capacity.

    A single stack is comfortable.
    A double stack is comforting.

    Interestingly enough even 1911 makers are moving into the double stack territory.

    This will probably be the closest thing to the p229's little brother. In the meantime, as everyone has said before me, the p239 fills that role I suppose.
