I know you may not like polymer and I have both. But for a good all around pistol that one can never go wrong with is the Glock Model 27 40 cal. With extended grip and one extra round.

Yep it's the Sig Anti-Snag. Very smooth and easy draw from concealment.

The 229 is a fantastic pistol. I would think a regular uniformed officer would use a full size sidearm though. But I don't guess it's universal.

If you know what the dept allows as choices go get your hands on all of them if possible. Then you will be able to make a better choice. Honestly though if they issue a 229 Sig it's hard to go wrong there.

i shot a beretta 96 which is a .40 cal M9. Lot of recoil kicked like a mule but it was fun to shoot and despite the recoil extremely accurate.

If you are considering a Poly, look at the Steyr M40 - S40. At least you won't have to put up with the crappy Glock trigger. Better ergonomics less muzzle flip.
