No part of this video was paid for. The 229 in the video was provided by my Air Marshal buddies when I retired as a gift. Now... When there is no backup, professionals call on the Sig Sauer 229 in 357 Sig. But why? Well, in truth, it has more to do with a feeling of confidence and having the "cadillac" of firearms and a proven track record than simple specs. Other firearms also have impressive specs. But this one gets personal.
