The P229 comes in 9mm, 357sig, and 40sw. The only difference between the latter two is the barrel. An extra barrel will run you about $200 if changing between 40 and 357.

A 357sig has an expensive appetite. $20+ a box (50) for range ammo if you don't reload. Good round and all, but not dramatically better than a hot and heavy 9mm (Win Ranger 127gr +p+) or quick and light 40sw (135-140gr Corbon/Pow'rball).

I didn't know it came in 40 I like that a lot more than the other 2 I've never owned a 40 n I bet it'll be smaller than my 1911

The Sig will be lighter than your 1911, and you will have more rounds in the mag of a Sig vs 1911. Plus the recoil of a .40 is less than that of a .45. It will all boil down to personal preference when you finally decide on what you purchase.

The Sig 229 in 9mm or .40 are really good, very manageable, and will not cost a arm and leg to shoot.

Most manufacturers make the "don't use reloads" claim, voiding warranties and such. I fired 10s of thousands of reloads out of Glocks with no issue. Any pistol will grenade when pressure is exceeded beyond limits. Rather it be a cheap one than a pricey one. Reloading is a viable option for me because I live in a remote area where ammo is not readily available. I sorted out my quality issues with a digital scale.

As mentioned the trigger on the sig is really nice in the S/A mode.

Here's a pic of my Glock 21 for the gore fans. 12 grs of Win 231 with a 230 gr JHP brought the chamber to failure. The outcome would be the same for any other make and model. The double charge was attributed to a bend scale arm that held at zero no matter the weight.

Holy crap! What'd that feel like going off in your hand?

Like someone smacking a gun out your hand with a baseball bat.

the gun in the picture is a p220 not a p229. I believe the p220 is chambered in 45acp only.

I had some trigger time with the pistol and it's awesome. I ran 200 SWC, 230 gr FMJ and JHP. It cycled everything well and consistently shot super tight groups. It field strips easy and holsters well.
I'm glad I blew up my Glock. Had to triple weight all the ammo involved. I'm extra paranoid with the reloads now.

Glad to hear that you like your Sig pistol. I have almost the full line of Sig Classic pistols. The only pistols I am missing are the P210, the new P224 and the P238.

I have only 1 Glock, the 19 in 9mm that my wife uses once a year to practice with to qualify with her duty pistol at work. She would much rather carry my P220 in .45 then her Glock 19. Go figure.
