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.
Glock 36, 30SF, 31, 32, 21 Gen4 - Carry guns
Ruger Mini-14 and Remington 870 by the bed both wearing Surefire lights.
Always carry a knife-they are handy to have
Always carry a reload-You probably won't need it but it is good insurance .
Always carry a light- To see in the dark
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.
To the O.P. You've made it to the top.[/QUOTE]
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.
