Hi all, I'm considering a 228 or 229 as my next purchase. I'm going back to LA for leave from Iraq (actually I'm supposed to be there now if it weren't for the dust...) and I was thinking of trying both while I'm home so I can make the purchase right when I return. Does anyone know of any rental ranges around LA that has both models for rent? Or if anyone here has both, maybe we can meet at Los Angeles Range or Burro and admission will be on me for some time with your Sigs :cool:.

I'm considering a P228 or P229 in 9mm or .45. I'm also thinking about a .22 pistol (Trailside, Buckmark, MkIII, P22 or Mosquito).

Do you mean a P229 in 9mm or .40 S&W? Neither or those guns come in .45ACP.

I know almost all range rentals will include a P229, but I have never seen a P228 at one.

Whoops you're right, no .45. I guess 9mm then.

Check out LAX Firing Range. I believe they have a few Sigs for rent.

Actually, you can fire it anywhere you'd like, just be prepared to pay the price!!:shock:

Firing Line northridge has a 229, although I don't remember the caliber. I think it might be .40s&w.

Most places are going to have a 229 on 40 s&w since that is the number 1 caliber sold for that model. The range near my place has one in 9mm which is weird.

But I can almost assure you that no range will have a 228 for rent. It wasn't a in demand gun. Plus if you want to buy one your out of luck since Sig Sauer stopped importing them from germany awhile back so finding one NIB is almost impossible. They still sale them over seas and to the US military but other than a few small runs now and then you'll have to look for a used one.

If you want to try one ask if a member has one that you can meet up with and try theirs out.

Oaktree gun club in Santa Clarita has a p229 and p226 in both 9mm and .40 for rental. Call first to make sure they're available, though.
