Glock for me, I have not used a sig, but the Glock always fires when you need it...

Glock hell yeh, I have 3 of them.  Wish my Department would go to them, we carry HK USPs in 45.  Love the caliber but not a user friendly gun.   I have seen to many Sigs go down on the range.

 Glock, Glock, Glock Glock oh and did I say Glock?  My department issues us the Glock 22 but my Glock 21 fits my hand better so I carry it.  I also have a Glock 30 for back.

I'm a wheel man, I carry a 38 cal. S&W airweight, my point is that if you can't take care of the problem in 5 shots well just say sorry bud!

I have carried both on duty.  Frankly, it is a toss-up as far as reliability and accuracy are concerned.  Where the Glock really shines is that it is far lighter on your Sam Browne belt than the Sig.  To me that makes a huge difference.

SIG 229 .40 S&W no questions asked. I own both a Sig 229 and Glock 23C needless to say the glock just collects dust in the night stand.

IMHO, while yes, the glock is good, a dependable weapon with workman like quality, I still think the Sig is a excellent weapon that beats the Glock.  It is the Swiss watch of the gun world, take the pun if you like.  High quality, very well machined, and deadly accurate out of the box the first time and every time thereafter.  I would say that a Glock is sorta like Gerber knives, but Sig is more of a surgeon's scaple.  My Sigfried (a dark and dusky P228) is the only other girl my wife will let me keep and I gotta tell you, I like her lines!  The glock is fine if you like right angles and mass production.......but for a discerning few, there is Sig Sauer.

In many ways I agree with you, but sometimes the job at hand requires something simple (Glock) & easy to use. No decocking after a shoot, more rounds in the magazine, light-weight, same trigger pull each time, easy to repair. I like my Sig also especially for it's great accuracy & reliablity (about the same as a Glock), but I don't care for double/single action, less rounds, decocking levers for a duty weapon. I would consider a DAK trigger for duty for a Sig though.

Have 'em both, I have a Glock 22 and a Sig 226 .40 both are awesome weapons, but if I had to pick I would pick the Sig! It just feels better to me, and although I have never had any problems with either of these two weapons, I have had Glocks in the past that stove piped on me a few times.

Have carried both the P220 and the G21 on duty.  I like them both just fine.

I own a sig and I love it, not a big fan of glock. I like having a hammer because it is easly retainable if some gets there hand some my weapon for some reason, and unlike a glock I can restrike the firing pin if the first round sdoes not go off. Thats one thing that is starting to be tought in defensive pistol shooting. If you have a failure to fire on the first strike they are saying on the second 90 percent of the time it will fire. If not then you do a tap rack reload.


But I will say the some thing I tell everyone about picking a weapon. Pick the one you are most comfortable shooting. If you can shoot the glock better then the sig go with it. They is no point in having a weapon that you can not put groups together with. And expand you choose's of pistols. There are plenty of company's that make great weapons out there such as H&K, Kimber, FNH, Karh..... I have never worried about price when it comes to buying a duty weapon or a back up. You can never put a price on your life.

While the 90% may or may not be accuarate the process you decscribe is adding steps to malfunctions clearances and IMO not a good idea.  However would that be 90% of the time of the fail to fire with a round in the chamber or does it include times when rounds are not in the chamber.  Most fail to fires I see are caused by failure to press check or not properly seating the magazine.  That would make pressing the trigger again a wasted effort.  Keep it simple if it dont fire tap, rack, access.  I teach whether it is a fail to fire or a fail to eject (stovepipe) clear it the same way.


I do have a question when you say tap rack reload. What is is done in the reload step.  I ask because reload is exchanging magazines, therefore making the tap rack pointless.  It could mean charging a new round into the chamber, but that is done in the step "rack."  I dont understand maybe there is some new whiz bang way I haven't heard about, I would be interrested in hearing/learning.  I promise I am really not trying to be a smartass, which is unusual for me.

No it fine brother I understand. I have been tought tap, rack access before also. I pick up tap, rack, reload while I was in the Marine Corps. I have picked up several differant ways of phrasing it, I think It just depends on the instructor. I learned the double strick when I went through the sig academy. What they say is that if it is a falure to seat the first strike of the hammer will seat the round, which will allow the second strike to fire.

I like both, but one out weighs the other.  Nothing better than a Glock.  Just my 2 cents.

I have never had a pistol that felt as good in my hand as my Sig 220.  However, my Glock 21 is in  my coat, and the house gun for the wife and kids is a G27.  So I guess my vote is with the Glocks.  As long as the caliber starts with a 4 I'm OK with it.

 I use a Sig P226 chambered in a .357 sig round.  I have put roughly 3500 rounds through the weapon and have yet to have a misfeed, or a jam of any sort.  The trigger pull is long which would be my only complaint, but the gun and ammo we use is very accurate.  The weapon is easy to disassemble and clean.  


However for Concealed Carry, I am purchasing a Glock 30.  I was looking at the Sig 239 but it just doesn't feel right.  I also shot the Glock 27 26, and 33.  They are all good and shot very accurately, but my hand size just doesn't work with any of those weapons.  I settled on the Glock 30 for two reasons, the size of the grip and the fact it can carry 10+1 .45 rounds.
