Well I love the .45 best round IMO but my wife needs to be comfortable with it also not just me if it was up to me I'd be another dirty Harry with my .44mag but that's just not in the cards so to say so I'm lookin at a .40 and I'm leaning towards the 2022 cuz of the price difference but we'll see a buddy of mine owns one in 9mm so I'm gonna see how it shoots

The 229 is not a single stack. You maybe talking about the P239 which is a great CCW pistol as well. I have the 226/229/239 all in 9mm. Looking at getting the P224 and P938 as well. I might get the P238 for a back up, not sure yet.

One day a LONG time ago, I made the mistake of teaching my wife to shoot. It was a few days after we started dating. I took her out to the range with my Sig P220 .45 and a Taurus Model 92 9mm. She had a good time as did I, but I lost my P220 that day.

She loved the way it handled and shot. I was surprised that she shot the .45 so well. Especially in such a large pistol.

Yep, you got me there. I meant the 239

Phelenwolf, I feel your pain. Lost my Ruger Mini 30 that way. Finished sighting in the scope at 100 yds, handed it to my wife and told her to shoot at 3 bowling pins at @ 125 yds. 3 shots, 3 pins down and she thanked me for HER new rifle.

She also likes to drawn on targets with my STI 1911 (45acp). If she didn't think it was too heavy to carry, she'd have stolen it too.

The upside to this abuse is she is at the range every week with her Sig P238 keeping her rounds primarily with the 9 ring at 7 yds. God help the fool that scares her.

Your wife sounds like mine. She is deadly with my Sig P-226/9. She is a nightmare with my P-239. The Range Safety Officer where she works always ask her if she is mad when she shoots. Because her 1st shot is ALWAYS low center and I mean LOW CENTER.

It makes me laugh until she gets mad then I start thinking.......

I love the 220. Shoot it a lot.

But I carry the 226 or 239 in 9MM daily.

The recoil of a .40 is actually more unpleasant than a .45.

I would strongly suggest a 9MM if she has issues with the .45

And anything you can't stop with a 9MM, you won't stop with a .45 or .40.

I have both a P226 and a P239 in 9mm. Both are great firearms. The 226 is a full size while the 239 I'd a good carry gun. Keep in mind they are not composites so relatively heavy. The weight dampens the recoil so easy to era quire the target for repeat shots. The are also among the easiest to field strip for cleaning. Custom service is great. Also 9mm ammo is among the least expensive.

The P229 is also a great Sig pistol. The extra weight of the pistol also allows for faster follow up shots. I am looking forward to getting the new Sig P224 in 9mm.
