I have a P229DAK in 40 S&W and it's rock solid. Eats any ammo I run through it. Even the "less-than-premium" stuff.

I may get both. I will probably pick up the 229 elite tomorrow if they have it. Is it worth the extra money? I like the beavertail because I mostly carried 1911's.

I vote Glock 32. I carry a Glock 23 because I have a specific purpose for it, but if not for that, it'd be a 32.

I looked at a few today but did not get one as I got confused. I really like the SRT Trigger. They had an Elite, Dark Elite, regular, Equinox, SCT, etc. I think I like the Dark Elite and SCT but the SCT did not have the SRT. I think I am going to get the dark elite and change the front sight to TFO. Thoughts?

Shane, I own a p229 Elite (stainless w/rosewood grips) in .40. I absolutely love that gun - by far my favorite to shoot and carry even with the added weight! I strongly vote for the Elite Dark - but I have to warn against the TFO sights - I have had ALOT of bad experience with those.

Does the weight bother you at all and what made you decide to go with the stainless over the others?

I ended up buying a P229 Elite in .40 and a .357 barrel. I also picked up a new P225 with night sights at the shop while I was there. Will get the G32 this weekend.

Good on ya! The 229 is never a bad choice, but I hope you are young and strong because that stainless frame is gonna make a lasting impression on your hip! Buying the .40 barrel was a good move, too!
