The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
Sig 238 HD had to make a couple of trips back to Sig, pistol got replaced. It was gone so much that two things happened...
Sig got a new slogan: To New Hampshire and Back Reliability
And as I couldn't carry that I made due with other guns so that when the gun was replaced I didn't really "need" it any more.
Ruger LC9. After less than 100 rounds, the front sight moved significantly to one side of the frame. Ruger replaced it with a newly designed pinned front sight on a new slide, but why did they sell me a brand new gun without fixing a known problem with the sight? It made it that much easier to get rid of and get the new XDs

Taurus TCP 738 "B" serial number.
3 trips to Florida (repair) for extraction issues, and now it's working great.
The downside, for every 1 week it was in my possession it was in the hands of Taurus for 6.... that's a lot of away time, so luckily it wasn't my only carry option.
PF9 is putting up quite a showing here as well.
Bought a Sig P229 (.40) back in '98. What a great carrying/riding sidearm! Loved that gun...... until I brought it to the range for it's intial 'break-in'. Ran perfectly for five to seven rounds, then....... FTF, or failure to return to battery, or stovepipe, double-feed..... just all kinds of problems. What a heartbreaker. (It made two trips to NH and back AND several to SIG authorizied armorers/gunsmiths)
Long story short, after spending dang near what I paid for it to get it fixed (and ya'll know SIG 'likes' their firearms) I traded it for a Ruger P95 (9mm) and a few bucks cash. That Ruger was ugly, big and heavy, but that thing NEVER malfunctioned.... ever. A streamlight added a little later on and that was the perfect HD sidearm.
I have never touched or thought about purchasing another SIG.
