I called the PD just now. I was politely informed that there is a huge backlog from Hurricane Sandy (that was in November BTW) and they only got 10 applications in December (I handed mine in on Dec. 7th) but they got close to 40 in January. The Captain was out on vacation the week before last and this was off Friday as well. He also told me he didn't have my file which means that the file is on the captain's desk as we speak, so that could be mean it's a matter of a few days.

I felt like for such a long and polite description of the reasoning why I'm waiting more than the requisite 30 days, I could wait a few more days before reaching out to the Captain directly and inquiring as to the delay.

I would go with the Sig. I love mine. I also have a couple .40's, but the .45 is more fun to shoot. The .40's are kind of torquey. Yeah, I know. Torquey isn't a word, but it says what I want to say. The .40's twist, the .45 recoils in a straight line.

Nothing beats the trigger on a quality 1911...

nah, torquey's actually a good word for it. why not. The worst, most f'd up muzzle flip I ever experience was a glock .40. sure that has to with the light weight too but yeah....torquey. I checked. It's not a word. we might have to petition Miriam Webster.

I just cant get into the 40. I just dony see the point of a necked down 10mm. Or paying the same price for 40 ammo wen i can get the 45 ammo thats so much larger for basically the same price. I have a larger argument against the 40 but it would take several pages so i'll leave it at that

For sure go with the 9x19mm. You'll be able to get ammo for it when you can't get it for anything else. With good +P hollow point loads it'll do as well as ANYTHING that you'd care to carry and you'll have more rounds too.
Personally, the Glock G19 is my handgun of choice but I'd not turn down a Sig P228/229. They're awesome guns too, it's just my budget at the time would only allow for the Glock.
1911's can be picky for combat use, look up James Yeager's video about em' and you'll learn why. Also look up his video about the 40cal.
