    If that gun feels better to you, then save up the dough to get it.

    Let me tell you why I don't own that sig and I own a glock 23.

    When I pick up the 226, it feels clumsy in my hand. When I try to draw and sight, I spend about a 5 count just looking for the sights. It doesn't fit me. It doesn't feel comfortable whatsoever. I feel that I would be better off confronting a bad guy with a baseball bat.

    When I pick a glock 23, it fits firm and comfortable. It doesn't feel like I should struggle to hold on to it. When I draw and sight, the sights come right up and point exactly where I want them to. It is comfortable. It feels like an extension of me rather than a chunk of metal.

    If your experience with the sig is so overwhelmingly positive, like my experience with the glock 23, then the sig is what you should get.
    Sig's are very high quality. They simply don't fit my hand. So they are not for me. In fact, if I were to purchase one solely on a sig fan's opinion that they are God's gift to guns, I would end up resenting the piece and probably never shooting it.

    If the Sig fits your hand much better than a 23, then you should get it. I am a glock 23 fan, and some glock fan's out there would tell you the 23 is God's gift to guns. However, if you are not happy with it because it doesn't fit you, then don't get it. You would be happier and safer if you would get the one that fits you.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I would forget about the elites, and the other special run Sigs. If its about feel, the regular will fit you just fine. To be perfectly honest, most people don't shoot well enough to take advantage of all the bells and whistles offered these guns.

    I have found the 220 to fit my hand like a glove. Its a little thinner and the grip feels like it was made for my hand. All the other Sigs (226,229,239,232) fit my hands great also, but the 220 is the best.

    Cehck out www.mactec-militaryarms.com. They sell CPO (certified preowned) Sigs for less than $500. My father-in-law bought his 1st handgun, a 9mm 226, for $485 and the process was very simple.
    Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!

    They have pretty good deal on the 239 and 228's.

    What impressed me was the real short reset on the trigger. My glocks don't even have that. But, it may be that I would have my trigger reset before I had a good sight picture for followup shots. What impressed me to not get it was the price!! Yikes! I'll spend that money on ammo and training. Thanks for your input.

    Ahh don't rain on his dreams I'm sure most guns out shoot the people who own um but owning a top of the line firearm is a pride in ownership deal

    Sig will put in a short trigger reset for you, I dont think its very expensive.

    I think its $99 for the short trigger. What I am really starting to like is the DAK trigger.

    If given the choice between any of the Sigs and a Glock 23....I'd take the Glock hands down. Sigs are an overpriced weapon that have inherant problems staying rust free and servicable with duty pressure ammunition (specifically in the 9mm+p+ and 357 Sig).

    Sorry...just dont see the reason, but hey thats just my opinion and we all know what opinions are.

    i plan on getting the glock 23 or 27 soon as my tax refund comes, the glock feels great in my hand as well and i know glock is good stuff, however that sig was a hell of a gun, nice crisp 3lb trigger pull, the slide was super tight and smooth, just in a whole other class...

    I think the glock is better for carry than the 226: weight, size, you don't mourn when holster wear develops.

    I can feel your "want to" it's a big urge. I was saving up for a wilson CQB a few years back and I went in a gun store and there was Les Baer Thunder Ranch 1911 (one of my lust guns). I bought that gun with the money I had saved and It's my favorite gun I will ever own.

    If the tricked out Sig226 does that for you, then you should save up, sell some stuff, quit eating lunch. Let us know what you decide.
