My buddy wants a gun - his first. He wants a 9mm for HD and range time - not CHL. The wives will want to shoot as well...hence the feel of the P229 and the SA capability was a good thing. He shot my Walther P99QA - loved it. We then shot a Sig Sauer P229, XD9, Beretta PX Storm, Glock 17/19, and S&W M&P Pro - he went for the Sig in a big way. Capacity (15rd) was there, feel, noticed recoil, grip, etc all worked (for both of us). I have never bought a Sig before...I also loved the feel of the P229 and would get one for HD/Range time. Went shopping online and found best price of @ $750.00. Problem: During research I found TONS of different models and sub-models within the P229! Hell, just wanted a 9mm DA/SA which felt the way the P229 did. Any suggestions on other models which fit 9mm category in Sig line? Is $750 a good price for new with night sights. Thanks in advance, will continue searching blogs/threads.
