    I have owned and shot both extensively in 9mm, 45ACP, and 40 S&W. I curently own a Glock and no Sig. Both are durable and accurate. The Sigs will help with felt recoil impulse. Glocks have a more consistent trigger (no DA/SA transition). I have also carried both on duty. I prefer the Glock for all day carry since it weighs less. It is also a better ergonomic fit for me.

One of the things I like about the HK and Sig is if you have a misfired round you can try to pull the trigger again to get it to fire, with the glock you can't do this, you have to rack the slide to get it to fire again. Can't beat a Sig P220, imo. Unless of course your dept. would let you carry a 1911 cocked and locked, but haven't seen many departments that would allow that.
    Any academy worth a damn is going to train him to rack on a misfire IMMEDIATELY not attempt another trigger pull.

    I have a couple Sigs and love them. In the past anytime someone brought up Glock, I was the "blah, who wants a plastic gun" guy without ever shooting one. Late last year my department went to Glock 17s. I was in love after the first day at the range.

    You can't go wrong with either gun. Dollar for dollar, I'd go with a Glock as they are cheaper to start with.

    I disagree with whoever stated Glocks are not well made. They are known for the abuse they can take and still function. Take care of it and you'll have no problems. It's a pretty well thought out design with only 33 parts.

    I've only had mine since November but I've put several thousand rounds though it with 0 malfunctions.

    Ditto. The XD is a great handgun and just about the same price as a glock.

    I am a recruit with my local SO reserves, and I also shoot IDPA competitions. I will be carrying a Glock 22 as my duty weapon because that is what the full time deputies are issued, but for competition, I shoot a 1911. You can't beet the 1911 for accuracy, performance and comfort.

    I have owned glocks and XD's. I shot the XD better so i carry the XD. Both got the job done and i never had any problems. Plus 14 rounds of 45 is nice to have in the XD

    i am also looking at getting my first pistol in the near future. i suggest going to a range and trying out several models in several calibers. ive shot near 25 different models of pistols in several calibers and will be choosing the springfield XD45 compact when i do make my purchase. i personally dont like the feel of glocks, just something makes them uncomfortable and therefore harder to shoot for me. sigs are nice, but very pricy, ill eventually get one, but the XD will be a nice substitute until then.

    Both are excellent weapons. Dollar for dollar the value on the Glock is better...and I think it might be a slighty better combat piece (IMO).

    I would encourage you to look at the Springfield Armory XD pistols as well.

    Can't go wrong with either brand, but I MUCH prefer SIGs over anything else.

    1798 That Glock 21 is definately not good for a novice with it's big two by four grip. Glocks also almost always and I dont know why never hold what the magazine says it will and that goes for all the one's ive had and they stick up in the magazine wells when the guns heat up so bad you have to rip them out like a combat reload to change mags. Go shoot a SPRINGFIELD XD TACTICAL 45ACP AND tell me what you think when compared to any glock block...

    Glock is not easier to maintain at all. I get sick of hearing that. Plastic isnt easier to clean than aircraft alluminum you still have to blow out the sludge despite the adding oil on the slide rails. Glock might be simple but the Sig is a sweet shooter. Get what feels right in your hand. Price LE prices atleast in Va are from 420 to 480 with night sights versus about 100Plus for the sigs. AND IF PRICE didnt play a factor everyone would probably have an H&K

    Dollar to Dollar: Penny to Penny: Glock.
    If I had a chance to pick....it'd be a tough decision, but Glock in .45ACP. Less felt recoil than the .40SW.
    It really won't matter down the line. With either gun, you will have a good duty weapon that will last you your entire career. You will always want the other one after you bought one, hence why I have so many guns....buy one, go through the academy with it, and you will bond with it enough to know how it shoots.
    I was going to say what everyone else says and tell you to pick the one that is most comfortable, but then I got to thinking....the gun is a tool not an article of clothing.
    If you can shoot both. Pick the one that you shoot better with.

    Here we go again...

    You should pick whichever gun is more comfortable and accurate in your hands. There is no right or wrong answer. I carry a Glock and trust my life with it. That being said, if I were allowed to carry a Sig, I'd carry that instead. A Sig fits my hands better and I think its an all around better weapon. Shoot them both and pick the one YOU like best. Cost shouldn't be a factor in choosing a duty weapon. I'm not nieve enough to think it doesn't play a factor for many, but it shouldn't. Good luck.
