I am in CA buying it and yes only comes in 10 round mags but with the new models changing there are a limited number out there now, so that is why I am in this dilemma. The price is the same for either but I like the feel of the P226 better but I already have a MK25 on its way, but desperately want a .40 S&W. Leaning towards the P226 .40 S&W but still might get the P229 S&W .40 for concealment but really it is what 1 inch size difference, so that shouldn't matter too much. At least I don't think it will. I am former military and never really concealed to many weapons, just drop holstered them and used them.

Of course I have the money and could buy both of them but would rather get one and get a great .308 rifle.

I have shot the 226 and 229 .40. I have found that I enjoy shooting the 226 much more. I am also more accurate with the 226

Familiaity of weapon is a plus for sure(hence the 226).I would advise keeping the guns n ammo well organized,it might get confusing in an emergency
my $ .02

Thanks again.
Here is what I got:
I got a steal on the P226 Mk25 9mm.
I wanted to get a P226 .40 S&W but could not pass on the $800 Mk25 price.
It shoots simply amazing. The double action trigger pull is rather heavy, but I will get that fixed. And any other modification one can recommend.

Next I got a P229 .40 S&W BTFO
I wanted a compact for the possibility of concealment. And I really wanted a .40 S&W. Waiting for the gun but can not wait to take it to the range.

I understand it might have been better for accuracy and gun control to get the .40 S&W in the P226 but, my rationale was since I already had a P226 why have 2. So what the hell lets go for the P229.

Thanks Again
DOC Bubba

I had the same dilemma and chose the 226 due to it's heavier weight which I felt handled the recoil of the .40 better. My purpose is home defense so size and weight weren't a factor.
