    Arrow New member, new to concealed carry, Sig Sauer P229 owner

    Good morning, everyone! I just happened to stumble across this site while Googling images of the P229.

    I'm Kurt, just turned 21 a few months ago (December), and recently purchased my first handgun... brand-new Sig Sauer P229, .40 S&W, night sights.

    Google image:

    My holster is a Blackhawk Serpa CQC, matte finish.

    Welcome to the forums from Colorado! I owned a P229 for eight years and recently acquired a P239 Tactical. Sigs are incredibly well made and are the most reliable guns I own. Great choice.

    Welcome from MD! Nice pistol. You will find more than few people around here who have the SIGness.

    Nice choice for your first carry gun. My P229 is from the early 90's and I would not let it go for nothing. Try finding a IWB holster from Sparks,Brommeland or Del Fatti which will make it a great carry gun. The holsters bring a premium but are well worth the money.

    Welcome from WV...Good ol SW PA, I used to work in Morgantown, WV. Been thourgh your way a few times. I have the p229s older brother, the p228. It is an excellent firearm. My .40 is a Glock 23. You have a world class SD handgun. Treat it well. I agree with theozz...get urself a good IWB it will offer plenty enough retention and be much more comfortable and concealable.

    That's right on my list, after the 220 I want. haha

    I carry a P226 or a P239, both in VMIIs. Great guns, great holsters.

    The 226 is a bit bulky for summer carry, I have hogue grips on it that make the handle a bit fat. But the 239 conceals like a dream.

    Sig ownership is a sickness, you will soon want more and more. Good luck!
