new 229

just bought a sig 229 with night sights. $729 my other gun is a 220 carry sao. i used to be a glock guy until i fired the 220. most accurate weapon i have ever fired. i still like glocks but not like the sigs. i used to be a .45 guy. but i saw a show where a guy with a knife was shot 8 times with a .38 he turned around walked 25 feet and sat down.. he was taken by ambulance and released a week later, not much worse for the experience. then i saw a show on forensic files where a serial killer walked up to a car and put 4 rounds of .40 caliber bullets into a lady and ran. she got out of the car and walked to her daughters apartment, who called an ambulance, which took her to the hospital. she was released a week later in good condition.
so i figure it is all about shot placement. i will carry my 229 with ammo that travels at 1250 fps and i will not feel like i am under armed. cant wait to fire it.

CONGRATS on the 229. I'm looking into getting a P229 in 357 Sig.

Congratulations!

If you haven't already done this, maybe put some grease on those rails so they don't wear down to bare metal like mine did.

I have a one inch mini "trench" in the right rail of my 229's frame that is bare metal.

Not too happy about that.

thanks for the heads up. i plan to buy some mil-comm before i go to the range.

i have never shot anything that could compare to my sao 220. so i can't wait to try this.

p.s. is there any place on this forum which will give me step by step instructions to post pictures? thanks again
