    HV - this is the SIG trigger type. With gun empty - cock it and then let hammer down under control - it will stop short of FP - but with trigger still to rear it will push fwd to contact FP. In use of course the momentum of the hammer takes it all the way for you well before trigger reset..

    Once trigger resets, the hammer is blocked and so appears to sit back a bit. IMO a very good and safe system

    BTW - congrats on the new family addition!!

    Thanks P95....makes good sense. I was hoping there wasn't a problem with it
    The salesman said I made a good choice. He was a retired Police Officer and carried his for a long time. He said when they retire....they are allowed to purchase their carry weapon for 1 dollar....which he did.!!! The Sig is a very comfortable gun in my hand, hope it shoots good.

    I haven't got or shot a SIG that small but doubt very much you'll be other than delighted. You have already mentioned it feels good in the hand - and that is half the equation for me.

    Now go shoot the snot out of it and break it in

    I just came in from putting a couple magazines of Winchester 165 gr. through my new Sig P229 and all I can say is WOW!!!! I wont be trading this one in. What a sweet gun. No fancy stuff with this one, It's all business!!!!!!

    Although I will be putting a set of Crimson Trace Lasergrips on it, just because I think they are cool!!!!

    Aren't they nice!!! Even when they get smaller!

    CT grips huh! I think you'll like those a lot - cool factor yes but being also very practical - they are for me a great adjunct.

    I always tho suggest to any folks with them - use irons all time and let red dot if seen, become a confirmatory presence - tho in very low light it can be all that is seen and needed. Main thing is to avoid dependence on that.

    I have some coming for my new (to me) SIG 228 - which will mean then (shudder as I total up money spent on these!) - my sixth set!!

    So - CT's on - SP-101, M28-2, M629-6, SIG's - 220, 226 and 228. Yikes!

    Cool ..... I figured I would get ridiculed for using Lasergrips. I feel that that little red dot is very intimidating and might be all the force that is needed at times. I know I would hate to have a red dot on my chest if I was a BG!!!!

    Well - first off - I for one would never ridicule anyone for laser grips - I guess a few might but - as long as they remain ''accessory'' category then they can IMO be invaluable. Could well be the most efficient way to have to shoot round a corner from cover, maintaining absolute minimal exposure.

    I actually don't think a BG will often see any red dot on himself - but more likely he may notice the spot of red from the emitter on the gun - which could (should!?) get his attention
