Which Sig-Sauer in .357 sig. 226 or 229...

Price will be the same no/charge!

So tell me what you think.

Thanks to the Sig-Sauer people.

Duty/Range gun = P226
CCW/Off Duty = P229.

I had a P229R in 357 Sig and loved it. I will get another... one day...

I carry my P229 in the dead of winter. With a Bianchi Carry-Loc holster it it not too bad. It is nothing you will forget is there, but it is not uncomfortable and it is definitely comforting.

One thing to keep in mind is that these double stack Sigs are pretty darn thick. It is at the limit of how large a grip I can handle. The rubber grips are slimmer than the wood.

The P229 is not too bad to conceal. Not the best for summer time t-shirt carry, but definitely concealable with a jacket/coat.

I have no trouble carrying a 229 and find it conceals IWB for me easily. I also find it to be a fine reange gun for extended shooting sessions.

Seasons have little impact. When dressed, I always wear a belt and a shirt.

That gun is way too manly for you. Send it to me and I will send you your Ruger LCP in exchange for it.

The SIG Sauer P229 was the pistol the 357 SIG cartridge was originaly made for..
I don't think you can get a better answer than that..
Bought my first one in 1993..
Great carry size & a very powerfull 9mm cartridge plus you can also buy a 40 S&W barrel too..

Yup, and mine, shown above, was only available in .40 S&W, and I subsequently swapped the .40 barrel for a Bar Sto 9mm.

P229 Elite all the way. I have had one for quite awhile. The 14rd SCT mags work very well.

If you are going to "TAC" it out get the P226, the light/laser combo and the drop thigh holster along with the 20rd(9mm) or 15rd(40) magazines.

The P226 is my favorite 9mm handgun. My next will be a X5 TAC.
The P229 is my favorite 40/357SIG handgun. I have owned many models.

229 blue Sig Sauer in 1987 or 1988...

I bought a .40 short and very weak.

I am working on a deal to get a 226 in .357 Sig caliber!

It's my gun butt I will have to pay 1/3 value to a liar to get it back!
