I am a SIG fan. A big SIG fan. In fact my wife just bougt me a brand new P229SAS in .357SIG (as yet unfired) for my 50th birthday. My trouble lies in the fact that I am also a big 1911 fan and have a safe full of them (I think I've got over a dozen), one of which is my all time favorite 1911, a Combat Commander that was my first civilian carry gun. Today my dilemma deepened.
I took the Colt out of the safe and took it out in back of the barn and proceeded to put 50 rds of Whitebox through it just for old time's sake. The thing pointed better than my P229 ever did, and the trigger was as crisp as ever. It broke right where I remembered, and my muscles remembered too. Everything worked the way it should have, and every round made COM. I decided to dust off my old carry holster, and strapped it on. It was thinner than the SIG, and a shade lighter as well. It was barely noticeable as I ran out to the store for a few items, and it didn't dig into my side as I sat in the car.
100 rounds later I put my old P229 on the board looking for another 239 or another Commander sized 1911. I am going to keep the SAS unfired for now, and clean up the old 229 for good and put it aside for it's next owner. From now on my daily carry is my old tried and true 1911 in the good ol' .45ACP.
