Robert Green is a former LEO who now teaches the Texas License to Carry class. Being in law enforcement gave Green the opportunity to carry several different models of handgun throughout his career. He has carried everything from a SA Kimber to DAO Glocks. The firearm he chooses to carry as a private citizen is the Sig Sauer P229 and the caliber he chooses is .357 SIG.
The reason he likes the P229 pistol is because of the long double-action trigger pull. During his career he has seen many people engage a trigger before they are on target due to the light trigger pull of their gun, this is why he thinks the long double-action trigger of the P229 is ideal. He chooses to carry the gun in a Bianchi pancake style holster in the 3 o’clock position. The holster includes a thumb break for added retention of the firearm.
Green has a few different holsters he likes to use depending on the situation and dress attire he finds himself in. “You should absolutely pick a holster that is specifically made for your firearm and for that model,” Green said. To accommodate his IWB holster he buys his pants one inch larger in the waist so he can accommodate the extra room the gun will need.
His P229 came with both a .40 S&W barrel and a .357 SIG barrel and that is when he decided to research the ballistic properties of both calibers. Green chooses the .357 SIG because it’s a smaller caliber bullet necked down to fit a .40 caliber casing. The result is a greater muzzle velocity from the .357 SIG.
What do you think of Green’s choice of carry and holster options? Do you agree with his philosophies on the .357 SIG vs .40 S&W? Sound off and let us know in the comments below.
