    opinions on the glock 23 or Sig p229 both 40 cal.

    If you were to pick one for carry which one would it be and why?
    Thanks

    It's not help me decide anything just real curious.

    I have hearing a lot about these two guns and just want some different opinions from a different source.

    thanks

    it all depends on which one feels better in your hand and which one you shoot better

    I know I started that but this question is now on two specific guns for carry the g23 or the sig 229 only.
    That was a question on reliability and durability and surprisingly te poll is coming out almost even.

    It doesn't matter what feels good or shoots good from my hands I'm just asking for what you think.

    Seriously, choose one and be done with it. You've seen the poll results from your last thread, and this thread will be no different.

    It reads the same minus the substitution of one word.

    All else being equal, Glock for the lighter weight.

    I carry a Glock-23 for CCW and have for over 10 years. I carried it for a uniform duty weapon for 3 years before going over to a Glock 21 and only because the G-21 was required.

    Resonable cost, reliable, easy to maintain, as accurate as I can shoot and from personal expierence great customer service.

    I like Glock.

    They don't bother me per se, it's just that the opinions from the last thread are all still valid and mostly unchanged here.

    For example, here is my opinion from the last thread, nearly word for word:

    My current EDC is the Gen 4 Glock 23. If I'm not carrying it, I'm carrying a Gen 3 Glock 19.

    Why do I like my Glocks? Here are some the reasons:

    They are lightweight, thin (for a double stack magazine), extremely reliable, resistant to corrosion and rust, require little maintenance, have significantly fewer parts than other semiautomatic pistols on the market (less things can break), low bore axis = lower felt recoil and the Gen 4 dual recoil spring reduces felt recoil further, parts are cheap and available making them easy to stock up on, etc.

    Sig makes fine firearms, too, but I love my Glocks.

    (One more thing: the "low" price of Glocks has allowed me to purchase a backup of both the Glock 23 and the Glock 19 for practice and/or replacement in the case of a problem with a main. Also, if you have to shoot someone in SD, you won't see that gun for a very long time, not to mention that anything mechanical can fail. Assuming that higher price = higher reliability is a fallacy. Look no further than BMW's and Range Rovers...).
