The classic P series is top notch. I've owned three P229's and a P239 over the years, all reliable and very accurate. My current a P229 SCT .40 wears Hogue Chain Link G10 grips which I find more ergonomic than the standard or E2's. I much prefer my P229's with the classic slide and short extractor as well.
Just picked up a P938 for the wife. 1st SIG for me. I think build quality is very high. Feels very solid for such a small gun.
A Sig fits me like a glove. I will not carry anything else. I have carried a 228 and other Sigs in the military and as my EDC for over 20 years now. Bottom line for me is this: Sig are great. Older Sigs are beyond great. You pay for what you get. I don't give a hoot what one buys or carries and never tell them this trigggger is better than that or this grip is better than that. It is all too subjective and the only thing that matters is the person that owns the weapon feels about it and how well they can shoot it.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
It's hard to beat a Sig. They are costly but worth it IMO.
I think very highly of Sigs and own 5 of them with a sixth on the way. They have been very reliable and accurate in my experience, and are very good looking guns. I especially like the P series guns with metal frames. They tend to be larger than average guns, but a few of them are compact enough for concealed carry, such as the P245 and P239.

I have a P226 MK 25, P226 TacOps (40) and a 1911 TacOps. I carry all 3. Yes they are expensive but they are quality and worth the extra weight to carry around. If you feel your life and the lives of your family members are worth the extra cash and weight to have a quality weapon on your side then it shouldn't bother you at all.

I can only hope that if I ever come out of retirement & get back into armed security work that I'm issued a Sig. That's the only way I'd be able to afford one, lol.

While I don't own one, the one's I've handled clearly had a very superior fit and finish. There was no
comparison quality wise to others. YMMV and every manufacturer makes a dud -model or drops the ball
on QC for a batch or two. They are very good guns, but you need to make sure what you buy fits
your carry needs, hands and grip, preferences regarding things like DAO DA/SA, preferences regarding
safties or no safties, preferences with respect to a few other things I could quickly dash off as well, but
you get the point. Brand is not everything.

My Sig P938 is a quality firearm.

Sig makes a quality firearm, period. Their marketing department does run amuck at times. For my tastes, they do sometimes, get too "blingy" with some of their models, but that's just me.
I think they are a little heavy but other than that just fine.
Yoda, I am, yes.
I have them on my wish list. I don't own any yet. Know people who love them. They are a bit expensive for my carry needs so I would not carry it very often. I have shot several and like the way they shoot.

I wouldn't mind owning one, my son likes his, but they're too pricy for me as an "additional" firearm. My lesser quality and lighter weight but equally reliable Glock (or 3rd Gen S&Ws) will do just fine to protect the loved ones. Price does not always equate to better.
