Looking for a subcompact pistol

I hear 229s are good guns, but the only time I handled one was as part of a covered HUMINT training program, and the way I held it, I accidentally operated the mag release while I was firing it.

Twice.

Operator error no doubt, but I'd rather operate a gun where I don't have those kinds of errors.

I mistyped, I meant to say the p239. That said, the 229 IS a fine gun.

I was issued one for a deployment several years back. I liked it and would consider getting one of the new models that is cut for optics.

As for the mag release issue: have you tried having smaller hands? Might help!
