Okay, since I just picked up a PF-9, I can now scratch that one off of the wish list. In sticking with the outstanding 9MM cartridge, I figured my next one should be what else but a Sig P226??? I just recently either shot the 229 or 226 chambered in 9 and I thought the DA to SA transition was great and a LOT of fun to shoot. I am not really too certain though between the differences are on the 226 vs. the 229? I am looking to buy new, so if there is anything specifically I should check out on one of these weapons before purchase? FWIW, I have large, gorilla like hands. I was not sure if the grip dimensions were completely different between the two of them or not. All I know is, that one I shot of my friend's fit my hand like a GLOVE. I have never held another pistol that felt like it was made just for my hand only. Any input is most appreciated.
