Thread: Sig P229

  1. Sig P229

    Just wondering what your thoughts are on the 229 for IWB carry. Also what do you guys thinks of it as far as relieability and quility.

    Everything is 2 thumbs up. I use my 229 for IDPA, I don't iwb carry so I cant say regarding that

    if i had more thumbs...

    I agree 2 thumbs up! If i had more thumbs I'd include them also. I carried 1 with and without the light rail. Both worked well iwb. Cant say enough good things about Sigs. It gives the false impression of being a "chunky" gun but it really is well suited for daily iwb carry. Did it for years. Both of mine were .40s. And last I knew, its standard issue for Secret Service. Thats just cool to be able to carry what those guys do.

    I just bought a 229 E2 last month. They are as good as handguns get. You need one.
    Say when.

    Love my SIG P229R in cal. 40. I am using two kinds of holsters, depending on what i wear and do. One is a Super Tuck Deluxe from CrossBreed, and the other is a Combat Master Belt Holster made by Galco.

    I carried a P229 in .357SIG for years in a Kramer IWB 1 1/2. It carries well and stays put. It became too heavy for me when I reached 69 yrs old and had some medical problems. I now carry a P238 or a P232 in the same 1 1/2 Kramer IWB. I love it.

    Good piece of gear. I'm with geneedge, just too big and heavy for me to daily carry. I am not as "senior" as geneedge :) but even at my younger age I have gotten smaller and smaller guns to carry as I get older. I am very happy with the small size of my firearm now but if trends continue, I will probably be carrying some micro .22 by the time I am geneedge's age.

    My old beater 229 is still carried on occasion but it is kinda thick, I love it, closing in on 70,000 rounds through it but now more often than not I have a Kahr K40 or a Sig P239 with me . . . no plastic frames for me thank you

  11. Its a little heavy, I would go with a Sig 239 . A few ounces lighter and smaller all around. A crossbreed supertuck would work well with either.
