    bought a used P229, two-tone .40 today. police trade in. $510 with one hi-cap. probably not the best deal in the world but i got the itch and it was the only one i found in town today.

    this is also my first handgun purchase. yay me.

    already put about 100 rounds through it, fired very nicely. i just need to learn how to shoot properly now.

    here are my shitty pics. i am not a photogramapher. and yes, there is a little rust around the screws on the grip, but i will most likely buy another grip in the near future.

    Looks good to me I think a 228 or 229 is pretty high up on my list and the 2 tone looks is great.

    ACtually that's a pretty good deal. SIG's are metal and not plastic to they cost a bit more ;)

    Might be true. They have some pretty good Sig deals in their latest catalog, but you saw it in person, and got it today.

    On a side note:
    I don't know many LEO's but out of all the ones I know, and even seen, I don't think I ever saw one with a bi-tone gun. I wouldn't think that bi-tone would be as popular in lowlight situations as a regular all black gun. Just thinking that the extra reflectiveness of the polished slides might give away your location. Even if just a little bit.
