Thanks. I'm gonna rent a p239 at the range this weekend to discern the difference between that and a p229 if I can. I'll let you guys know. Meanwhile, looks like I can get a non-SAS for not too much.

Oh, yeah... post script. That GSG-5 -- that thing is, in my opinion, basically a toy. Feels like an airsoft to me. I'm staying away from it.
