Just rented one today and I really didn't like it, the trigger was just all wrong for me. I have a buddy that has one though and loves it! I just really really don't like the trigger but maybe it's because I shot Glocks more than anything but the sig trigger break was to far back for my big hands
I have a Sig P226 Navy and Sig Pro 2022 and love them both. Fantastic guns but I don't use them for EDC, a bit too bulky and heavy. Granted, not a 229 though the 2022 is about the same size and the trigger pull is similar if not the same.
Sigs are great guns and I love them, I've been eyeing one or an HK for years now, the only thing that's stopping me is the price. I just can't justify the price for one but would jump on one if the price is right. The 229's are great guns and you won't be disappointed in one.
I have a P229 with both .40 & .357 barrels. I just took it to the range for the first time earlier this week. I only shot it in .357 Sig, but my friend shot it in .40 as that's what he's been looking at. He stepped over into my lane when I pulled my target back in and told me he's in love with the gun.
When I got it, I immediately did some upgrades; I put the short trigger, the short reset trigger kit and the E2 grips on it. As far as I'm concerned, it may well be the closest thing there is to perfection in a metal frame gun.
