    Nice piece. About 20 years ago I purchased one of the German police surplus P6 pistols, essentially the P225 in police issue version. Century International had those, in the box with manual and two mags, for $180 each at the time. Great pistol, which I foolishly let go of in a trade and now wish I had kept.

    Last year I picked up a Sig "Red Box" P229 .40S&W. Full factory reconditioned LE trade-in pistol, looks brand new, with one-year factory warranty. Got it for $410 plus shipping on GB. Another great Sig pistol, but I personally prefer the single-stack grip of the P6/P225 series. I have normal-size hands with long fingers so the double-stacks are not a problem for me, but I don't see how those with smaller hands would get along with them.

    I can't explain how or why, but the grip on my P229 feels "better" (more secure, more controllable) than Glocks with thinner grips (I was a Glock guy for the previous 9 years). My wife, who has even smaller hands than I do, shoots my P229 very well, although she carries a G43.
