    New-to-me - Sig P229 Elite Stainless (Pictures)

    Well, tonight I got to finally fire my new-to-me Sig P229 Elite Stainless (9mm). I got the gun about a week ago and was dying to try it out. So, today I went to the local range and put 100rds through her. All I can say is, "I made the right choice for me!"

    The Sig Sauer P229 Elite comes with the Short Reset Trigger (SRT), which I had not shot before. The first mag required a little getting use to because that second shot comes fast--I believe the SA is 4.5lbs. Once I got used to it, the follow-up shots came pretty easy.

    The target I used in the background of these pictures is one from today at 21 ft. Even though I had a couple stragglers, I'm happy with this grouping.

    Now I'm ~really~ looking forward to my CPL class in two days.

    Hope you enjoy the pics.

    The Sig is one of the pistols that is not in my arsenal. Reading stuff like this may cause that to change.
    Very nice. Looks like you made a fine choice.

    I don't own one but envy the fella who does. :)

    That is the one I was dead set on getting, but recently shifted my attention to the P220 Elite Stainless. I will probably always want to have the 229, and the very one you've selected.

    Congrats...I think this must be a firearm that could stay in the family for generations...I see no reason why not.

    I'm not really a Sig guy, but that is a beautiful pistol. Looks like a tack driver as well. Congrats.

    I just got a SIG P229 SAS this year and it has hopped into the EDC slot...in a Milt Sparks VM II no less.

    Love the pics, those Elites are gorgeous. I've not shot the SRT, but am itching to try one out.

    Nice addition to your collection.

    I wasn't specifically looking for a 229 Elite Stainless, but I couldn't pass up the deal. After shooting it, I'm glad I got it. It is so nicely balanced and really fits my average-sized hand (6' 180lbs). Love it.

    Great looking gun, I have several Sigs and don't have any "elite" models, but hopefully soon I will......I like the way they look.

    BTW great screen name.

    Speaking of "Sig Sauer", when my wife first heard the name, she asked me about it and had me repeat it a couple of times to her. Finally she nodded her head and said she understood. She went on to say that the Sauer (sour) part was apparently the face the wife made whenever the husband bought one. (funny wife huh?)

    She's pro-gun though she likes to chide me quite a bit, though I've bought 7 Sigs since she mentioned the "sour" part. She see's gun purchases as missed opportunities for her to purchase jewelry. Heck I thought that Sigs were jewelry?
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    That thing is beautiful. When I can save up the money, that will probably be my next handgun.

    The 229 is a functional work of art - that Elite SS is a work of art, period.
    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.

    I carry a p228 as my once in a while gun and everytime i do I just wanna carry it some more. It shoots like a dream and handles excellent. Very nice piece. Just hard to go leaving my original baby behind...G23.
