"What do you think of the 229 so far?"
Love the fit in my hand. Only have had the chance to put 50rds through it, but, my overall accuracy from various "ready" positions at 5/7/10 yards was great - in SA. I need more rounds to get comfortable with the DA pull. Felt a bit off with my finger position shooting live fire; something I didn't feel while dry firing.
As a lefty shooter, the gun is not a defense gun (no slide lock on the right of frame), but more of a nice gun for fun shooting and guest shooters.
Good platform to teach new shooters the concepts behind DA/SA; de-cocker, or new to Dots, how to train on and use a Red Dot properly.
Having the larger 226 Blackwater Edition (never been fired), I thought it would be a nice compliment to have the 229. The 226 is so damn big and thick, where the 229 is that "just right" feel for my hand.
