Hey i just got a SIG 229. I love it and it shoots great. I want to know how you all find it most comfortable to carry it. I find that an IWB in the small of my back works best, although the butt does stick out sometimes.

I carry mine in a Galco FLETCH and I like it. Hugs to the body and handles the weight. I use a Beltman horsehide 1.5" belt which is great.

A thin holster for my Sig 229, Comptac-CTAC worn IWB at 3:30 on a "The Beltman" belt.

The P229 has been a favorite of mine from the first time I shot it.

I carry mine in a Galco Concelable. In my opinion, the Concelable is the best belt holser out there for CCW.

I carry my 229 in a Comp-Tac paddle holster, it's my daily ccw.

I carry mine in a Fobus Roto Holster. It allows various positioning and versatility. Mostly I switch the angles to accommodate "small of Back" and standard hip carrying.

Haven't really tested it yet since my P229R (357 SIG) is my cold weather gun, but I got a DeSantis Thumb Break Scabbard (http://www.desantisholster.com/storefrontB2CWEB/browse.do?action=refresh_browse&ctg_id=2615).
Thought I might like to try the 3-slots for strong side carry and use the second slot for support side carry when in the car-seatbelts play havoc with strong side carry.

EDIT: You do know the downside of small of back carry don't you?
I see a number of folks advise against it, as there's a good chance you may end up on your back if attacked, and you may land on your gun. I've heard a few tales by cops that had it happen-they said the blow of the gun in their back hurt worse than the initial attack by the BG!
Just something to think about?

I'm a little guy so my Sig is just too big for me to conceal on my person without layering. When I do ccw I slide it into the side pocket of my commuter bag that I always carry with me.

Milt Sparks VM2 at 3:30, or OWB in the Serpa. I don't care for SOB carry at all.

They will custom make whatever gun you choose to carry, in this case, the sig. Takes a couple weeks to break in, and then it's absolutely sweet.. and classy.

I have both the Comptac Ctac and the Crossbreed Suptertuck. Hands down the crossbreed is the most comfortable holster I have ever owned.
