Oooooh yeah :!:
First here too, w00t :!:

P229 .40 S&W (<Daily carry )
Crimson Trace laser grips
Alternate .375SIG barrel.
4 Spare mags which work for both the .40 and .357 :!:

I have had it for approximately four years now, and so far... no matter what I feed it, it just keeps on going.
To the point of boring..... but that's a real good boring :!:

Standard carry load is the 155 Speer GDHP .40 S&W or the 125 Speer GDHP .357 SIG

RTFM

Who made your .357 barrel? Factory or aftermarket? I am looking to purchase one for my 229.

I really don't think you have a P229 in 9mm!!
Really? Please inform all of us how you came to this conclusion.

When I bought mine they were only available in .357 or .40
I see now that they are offered in 9mm...When did they start this?
1994 thru 1996, reintroduced in 1999, still making them today.

Thanks...I never knew that..
When I bought mine, the P228 was the 9mm. Have there been
any other changes? Are those 9mm barrels interchangeable with all the 229's??

I'm getting the impression that the 229 is the replacement for the now-Law Enforcement Only 228. You'd need a new bolt-face to ensure good reliability, but apparently 9mm barrels for the .40 SIGPros work well enough. I remember examining a friend's SIG slide (I think it was the SP2340) and the bolt face was a separate piece of metal, but I don't know if it is removable or not.

I just bought a pistol just like this, both barrels and all. Thanks for the tip on carry loads, I'll give them a try (although I kinda like Hornady TAP rounds).
