I currently carry a Glock 23.  I love the weapon and have never had an issue with it.  The department I work for is issuing SIG P228's, brand new, for us to carry, if we'd like.  The 228 is also a great weapon.  I don't think you can go wrong with either, but I'd thought I'd see what the opinions are of my fellow LEO's.  So given the choice, would you carry the 40 cal. Glock or the 9mm SIG?

What ever you can end the fight with faster and more effectively. The difference in performance between 9mm and 40 overlaps. Some 9mm rds are better some 40 rds are better. I like the consistent trigger of the Glock over any standard DA auto. The Sig P228 is a good firearm I just like the Glock better.


I thought Sig discontinued the P228. I thought for manfacturing purposes they made the P229 in 9mm

Having much experience with both weapons in an LE enviroment I would choose the glock.  The glock has fewer moving parts and thus less that can go wrong.  Also I find that I am much quicker getting my sights in front of my eyes with the glock.  The glock is lighter on the hip, and there are more chioces out there for holsters.  And as scurge says the consistant trigger pull is an advantage over the sig.


Both are fine weapons but that is my opinion.

I had a Sig  P229 a few years ago for my ccw.....loved that gun.  However, I was the only Sig in my ccw class when I got licensed - EVERYone else was using Glocks.  I just like how the Sig feels in my hand.....


Does anyone else use one on the job?p>

 I am not a fan of glocks, don't like the way it feels in my hand. Love sigs, like the way S&W M&P feels, but haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. LIke others said, which ever you're better with is the one to go with.

We carry Sig P229's in .40cal for on duty carry. Hate it. The DA is a tough pull on the first shot and is almost always low. I own and am qualified to carry offduty a Springfield XDM in 9mm. LOVE that weapon. It is lighter, a quicker draw, with less moving parts plus carries 19+1. In BLET we trained with S&W M&P's in the 9mm version. That is also a fantastic weapon and would welcome one in .40 or .45cal if anyone is interested in giving one away
