    The Sig is a great gun,I have the XD40 and I have not considered selling it.If you trade it in you will not get that much.Most gun shops will not give you more than 40% of the value of the gun.

    Im a Glock person, & I also have a 229. I prefer my G22 to the 229, basically due to weight and the G22 fits my hands better. My friend has an XD and it seems like a very nice gun/shoots nice. They XD is a tad bit heavier than the G, but seems lighter than the 229. (I didnt have the 229 there for comparison.)

    I would keep the XD if it were me, espicially if used for concealed carry.

    Sorry for the ramble....

    The 229 is a larger pistol and if your carrying concealed my not be the right pistol. I have a 229 and it is a great shooter, but carrying it all the time is really not the best option.

    I agree, I own the 229 and it is a fabulous gun to shoot. With that said, I would much rather have the XD for concealment purposes.

    Tell your Dad if he really loved you he would buy one for you. :rofl:

    Do you like your XD? Does it fit your hand well? Do you shoot it well? Has it been reliable? What is its duty?

    I have a few SIG's, and I love my P229 (40S&W), but it is too big and heavy for me to carry all day. It makes a great home defense gun though.

    I suggest keeping your XD, you may regret getting rid of a gun you like and you will probably not get a lot of money for it.

    If you have held and shot a P229 and you like it better than the XD, I would save up and buy one. There's nothing wrong with having both.:)

    Also, consider looking for a P228. There are some used ones floating around now at reasonable prices. It's an earlier version of the P229 and has a stamped slide and is a little lighter.

    :rofl:

    I'd stick with the XD myself, or maybe invest in a P250.

    Have you taken the gun in to see how much they want to offer in trade?

    no. the 229 is a chunky gun and does not work well with short fingers and smaller hands (even with some medium sized hands). i wouldnt want to carry it either due to size

    My wife has shot quite a few different handguns and prefers the feel of an XD. She also out-shot everyone in her CHL class with one.

    I say go with what you prefer.
