I am trying to decide on my first carry gun. I have settled on the 45 ACP for the cartridge, but can't decide whether to go with the S&W M&P, the Sig 220. I would like to practice with the gun to get comfortable with it, but want to have something that groups tight and will stand up in the long run.
I have shot the Glock 30 and am not crazy about it. It is too small for my hands and I wasn't happy with the trigger pull. I also read the comparison thread on here and seems the Glock and M&P are in a close race.
Comparitively, is the Sig worth the money over the Smith? For a novice shooter, will I notice that much of a difference between the two, or will it come down to feel. I would like to buy American though if all possible. I am planning to go handle both tomorrow.
