I believe the stainless models have been discontinued for both the 229 and 226. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but all the current production 226 (non X series) and 229 have aluminum frames and machined stainless slides. With an empty magazine the can be a little top heavy but otherwise they are well balance IMO.

Per SIG's website:

Slide is stainless on the p229. The frame is alloy or stainless, not too sure how to read that one.

If you go with the CZ, there is a model that comes with the safety installed but also has instructions and parts to go to a decocker setup (maybe Omega system?). CZ also has a "kadet kit" that, though pricey, would replace the slide and mag with ones for .22LR for the range.

My CZ-75b has been very comfortable and reliable.

Thanks for the correction.. I just looked over the 2013 model line up and it does show stainless frame models available. I read a different thread a few weeks back about stainless models being discontinued. Just proves you can't believe everything you read.

If you are going to look at a berretta 92, you had better look at a Beretta PX4 Storm also.

That's a excellent list. I don't think you'd go wrong with any of your picks. My personal choices would be for the Sig p226 & p229. The reason being, they are both the same platform, so training with the p226 at the range will carry over to your ccw p229 seamlessly. Everything is laid out the exact same way on both firearms. And they are quality firearms to boot. Good luck

What's the difference between the FNX and the FNP?

The FNX is a DA/SA Set-up. Not sure if you meant FNP or FNS? The FNS is the same line but is DAO like a Glock. I fired one, thought it was ok. Thought it would have been a lot better as a DA/SA.

Both the Sig and HK are excellent pistols.
