Welcome from Texas.I stopped by the LGS earlier this week for something unrelated, and in the Sig cabinet there was a new P229 Legion SAO. I haven't owned a hammer fired Sig for about 15 years, and knew very little about them, and even less about the SAO versions. I decided to take a chance and get it. They were getting ready to close, and I wasn't able to get back over there to shoot it till late yesterday afternoon, just before they closed. I did have time to quickly shoot 3 mags of cheap reloads that I had. It was only at 7 yards, but it shot 45 rounds through a 1.5" hole not counting 1 that I pulled about a half inch low. I was really impressed with how this gun handled.
I went back today and spent about an hour shooting it along with some other guns and decided that this is one of the best pistols I've shot as far as ergonomics, recoil and accuracy go.
I almost regret buying this thing now because practically all the other handguns in my safe that I thought were fine last week, all seem like junk. What do I do?
I'm hearing that the P226 is pretty good too....
Yup, for maybe 8 years or so the only center fire pistols I owned were Glocks. Then one day I decided to buy a VP9, and it was all downhill from there. I’m not a collector, so I have a tendency to sell anything that’s not getting shot, on at least a somewhat regular basis. I could probably be plenty content with a P229 maybe a P226 and a few others that I have.Great acquisition! I love my 229 SAO, and if you find one for a decent price, the 226 SAO is a crowd pleaser as well (at least in my home).
Your comment on changing perspective on your other guns resonates with me. Two years ago I had a Shield M&P as my only gun, and thought it was fantastic. At that time I knew little about firearms. My daughter then got a Sig P365 and recommended it at about the same time my wife encouraged me to up our game on home defense (along with millions of others in 2020). That opened the door to discovering Sigs, and the poor M&P was gone just months later. I now have less cash, but am happier!
I think I would have to agree 100% with that. It’s taken a while for me to get to that point, but I definitely agree. I will say though that at least today, and with the ammo I was using, the P229 did out shoot my Shadow 2, which I was a bit surprised at. Not by a huge amount, but the groups were were tighter.There is no comparison between a hammer fired gun and a striker. Imo, hammer fired is superior. And for me, the Sig classic P series pistols are second only to CZ 75 variants.
Amen to that.The only known treatment is massive doses of cash on a regular basis.
I had myself convinced that a 210 Legend was a cure. As soon as I had it and a new supply of 9mm ammo (that I never needed before) then a 9mm upper for my 320 had to be ordered to feed the Signess. I’m doomed. 😎Manageable? I have yet to find how to manage it, only feed the signess. 🤓
Thanks!Get the 226 next, welcome from NE Ohio
