I've been looking for a gun (as a hobby and ccw) for about a year now. I finally took the plunge and picked up a Sig P229R .40 this Saturday. Took it to the range on Sunday and put 100 rounds through it. I have found a new reason to wake up early on Saturdays. Even better is my girlfriend likes to shoot it too, but she doesn't like the weight and kickback. I'm gonna have to borrow my one of my dad's .22 pistol and let her use that.
