First of all, thanks Bud's for the quick shipout - I ordered on a Monday and got the gun on Friday the same week! They also had the best price around - this gun usually runs in the $1,000 range.
I couldn't be happier with the P229. It really tames the .40 recoil - no problems at all. I put 100 rounds through it first thing with absolutely no problems (with the gun - my shooting wasn't the greatest). The night sites are really slick and this gun did come with TWO mags.
The fit and finish are superb as I as expecting with a Sig, and the whole gun is very comfortable to hold, and shoot. The trigger is smooth with just a little take up, and the decocker works flawlessly. The aluminum grips with front checkering are actually much more comfortable than I was expecting - I wouldn't give them up to save any money The only thing that is missing is for me to learn how to shoot it more accurately.
I picked this version of the gun because it has the beaver tail and rails, which not everyone may like, but I got both these features plus the night sites and aluminum grips for the price of a standard P229. You can't beat that!
