    Why? While I had a bad experience with Glock, I always ask why.

    The PD that I work for carries the Sig Pro. About 5-6 years ago we carried the sig p226 9mm and we wanted to convert over to .40 cal. The Range staff tried a few different guns and put them through every test that they could think of from freezing to boiling the weapon, throwing it off roof tops, putting it in mud, etc and the weapon fired everytime. Our PD chose the sig pro as the weapon that we were going to carry.

    Now, some politics involved in this decision. Sig made the 2340 to be a combat weapon and to compete with Glock for the LE market. That being said they wanted a big PD (we have about 1,800 sworn) to carry the weapon for marketing purposes. A couple of the frames on our 226's cracked. Sig traded our 226's for new 2340s and paid for half of the cost of holsters.

    I have never had a problem with the sig pro. I went through FI school and shot about 1,500 rounds through it without cleaning or even oiling the gun and didn't even have one malfunction. In total I would estimate that I shot at least 5,000 rounds through it in the 4 years I have had it and can not remember the gun doing anything that wasn't operator error. I have never even changed the springs on it.

    I have a GLOCK 22, but prefer SIG's ergonomics (have a P-226) and the HK USP should also be a consideration. The trigger on the SIG Pro is much better than the HK USP or the GLOCK.

    Whichever suits your hand best and you can shoot with most accurately and consistently.

    GLOCK, SIG and HK are all very good guns either way.

    SIG has preference for earned reputation and reliability second to none. You get what you pay for.

    Glock or sig, I love S&W revolvers, but their automatics have basically sucked, the trigger pull has always felt like a broomhandle in a box of broken glass. S&W got sued by Glock over the Sigma design, always go with the original. You pay a lot for the Sig name.

    I like Glock or Sig. No experience with the Sigma. Did have one in property that forfeited to our agency. It has been used as off duty by one of our officers, and there were no problems that I am aware of, but I'm not in property any more.

    ColonelRivers, how would the Springfield XD pistols fit into your assessment?

    I had a Sig Pro 2340 and loved it. $500 + is a bit too high for one, though (unless it's one of the new 2022s, then that's pretty good). You can find them on Gunbroker.com for $400. I think I paid $450 for mine.

    I would put any of these three pistols listed below up against any Glock, XD or SIG any day. I've owned them all and below is what I carry.

    Taurus PT 24/7 12 rd. in 45 cal. w/tac-rail
    Taurus PT 145 10 rd in 45 cal. w/tac-rail
    Taurus PT 745 6 rd in 45 cal.

    I own and carry all three of these pistol. They feel better in your hand then anything else, have less felt recoil (feels like a 9mm) and are totally reliable.

    Our local P.D. carries the Sigma .40, and have for a few years. They are going to switch over to the Glock. As someone that carries the Glock on one job and a Beretta on the other, I like the Glock better.

    Would never carry Sigma as duty weapon but have one I acquired in a trade a few years back and I like it for off duty etc.

    I would have to lean towards the Sig. I hate Smith and Wessons but...I have heard nothing but bad things about the Sigma, I know guys that bought thenm and got rid of them within a week.

    Go with either the Glock or the Sig P series. I carry a Sig P-220, but I also own a Sig Pro 2340. From the discussions I have had with several people the Sigma is not reliable. I was going to purchase a Sigma for my wife, but instead I bought myself the Sig 220 and gave my wife the Sig Pro. I am in no way against the Glock, but you need to shoot a few different weapons and pick the one that works for you that is the most important thing. Check with GT Distributors about the Glock, they have great prices on everything and they have wonderful customer service.

    Glock Vs Sigma vs Sig

    As a dealer in firearms I can tell you for sure that "Brand conciousness" is alive and well in this industry.
    The Sig in my oppinion is to complex of a gun to be a good mission critical item, The Sigma is a Glock clone and it is OK but the best choice of the three is the Glock, Screw the frog masher trigger pull, they work reliably and you can hit the target right out of the box. If it gets full of crud from a fall in the mud, you can if you have to field strip it and wash it in a puddle to get it going. Although in a firefight you are not going to have time for such stuff.
    I have sold Sig's to the following that loves them, and donr get me wrong The Sig is a fine piece its just to expensive and too many parts to go south in it. case in point, the German Luger was an exquisit piece of workmanship but not for warfare. The 1911 was built for the job and did it well.
    The same goes here. Keep the tools as simple as possible and as easy to clean and repair as you can.
    Glock Lovem or Hatem , no in between ground at all.
    Keep up the good work
