I love almost everything that Sig puts on the market. I have a standard P229 in 9mm which has 9k and change through it. It's what I use for IDPA and general target practice since the ammo is so cheap (relatively). The DA/SA is smartly done and felt recoil is minimal with the all-steel construction, sans the cheap-o polymer grips (on mine).
I also own the P220 Elite, love it to pieces too.
