    Default Rented a Sig P229.. Fell in love?

    I've been in Florida for the past couple days with family, and as is the new family tradition, we went to one of the local ranges in Ft. Myers, FL (Fowler Firearms, great place if you are ever in the area and want to go shooting at an indoor range). I chose not to bring my gun down here, which I somewhat regret, but it gave me the opportunity to rent a Sig P229 (.40S&W) at the range.

    We rented three guns (Sig P229, Beretta 92, and Sig Mosquito). I started the day shooting the P229, and I sent my target out to about 7 yards. My first five shots (we were doing 5 and 10 round magazines to keep everyone rotating quickly on the guns) were all dead center on target, all touching, in a 1 inch group. Aside from my very vain side enjoying my sisters friends positive comments ("hooooly crap" "whoa Nina your brother could kill someone!") I instantly fell in love with the in hand feel, recoil feel, and accuracy of the Sig.

    The rest of my shots weren't quite as good as I kept rotating between the different guns, but I still can't believe how accurate this gun is. I'll upload some picture of targets and range day pics (my sister's friend brought her camera, and the range officer was cool with us snapping pics at the range).

    I don't have an immense knowledge of firearms like some of the members here, but I think I can say authoritatively that the Sig P229 (.40S&W) is an amazing feat of engineering and a duly impressive firearm.

    Careful, once you buy a sig you're gonna want another and another and...well you get the picture

    I have a 229 and I love it.
    I am not a lawyer and nothing I say should be construed as legal advice.

    Ditto, I have one and love it. Mine has SS frame, looking to get one with aluminum frame next to make it a little lighter. Even with the long travel trigger on mine it is one of the easiest guns Ive ever had to rapid fire and keep groups tight.

    My first pistol was a 228. Then I bought a 220. Excellent firearms. I trust my life to them. They both have run without a hitch for the past twenty years and will continue to do so.

    Ah yes love at first Sig. Got a P239 and had to have a P229 Elite. I'm eyeing a P220 or P226 next.

    I fondled a 226 elite at the gun store the other day, really nice. Green frame looks really nice.

    I'm not surprised you were able to shoot such tight groups. I've a two-tone 229 that will tack drive at 10 yards, so seven's almost a gimme for this gun. Concealment's not bad, either. Whenever you get yours - keep it clean and it'll be your BFF.
    These are the exalted gharāniq, whose intercession is hoped for. LMAO

    I just shot my 229 in 9mm about a week ago for the first time and can't say enough good things about it, what they is so true I want another already!
