Opinions wanted: Sig 229 vs Glock 19
I've got a little money now and I'm looking into a new gun. I need it to be a compact (both fun to shoot and somewhat concealable), 9mm, and under $800. So far I'm comparing the Sig 229 to a Glock 19. Thoughts on these guns, as well as other guns, would be very helpful!
Both good guns, but different...
I've owned both the Glock 19 and the Sig P229 for about 10 years. I think they are both excellent guns, but they have different strengths and weaknesses. You mentioned "compact" and "concealable" in your posting as key factors you are seeking in this purchase. That pretty well tilts your choice towards the Glock 19. The G19 is about 10 ounces lighter than the Sig, and is thinner in width and slightly shorter in the grip. I find the Glock much easier to conceal and more comfortable for all day wear.
