    I had one, It melted in a truck fire, Get the Sig!! If it's good enough for the Texas Rangers it should be good enough for you!!
    Sigs are cut above the xd!

    I have a XD45 compact and have shot my buddies SIG at the range manytimes, both are great guns. I do like SIGs a lot but for cc i would rather have my XD. The reason why i say this is when i draw my weapon, it will go bang becasue the safteys go off with your natural grip.

    Having never fired a sig, before trading my XD for one I'd ave to ask what it does that my XD doesn't? I do understand they have a pretty loyal following, though.

    For CC, I'd go with the sig. The xds seem a little to thick for me.

    Most will recommend the Sig and there is nothing wrong with that. My only caution would be if you are more comfortable, accurate, and confident in your abilities with the XD than stay with that.

    What safety are you talking about on the Sig? There are no manual safeties on the DA/SA 239, 229, 226, 220, 245 etc... unless you buy the SAO 220.

    Both are fine weapons. I carry the Sig Sauer 220 carry OWB in the winter and an HK P7M8 IWB in the summer. I am looking real close at a XD9sc for summer carry.

    I have no idea what it was, all I know the gun has to be an old model becasue it was several years ago (I am fairly certain it was a SIG maybe i could be wrong) However if there is no manual saftey then i would be open to carrying one. I havent been around the SIG line as it's out of my price range.

    I'm getting a 225/P6 soon, but I am no fan of the DA-SA transition. I'm not sure what the price is on the Sig, but if you're paying $200 difference with the XD in trade, personally, I would take the $200 and buy some parts for your XD, mags and ammo. You aren't getting that much "more gun" in the Sig, and November is rolling up pretty fast.

    I was looking for a new edc handgun recently. I was trying to decide between the Sig 239, and a glock. I ended up walking out of the shop with an XD 40sc. I like the grip safety, springfield has great customer service, but most importantly, the gun just felt good in my hands. I plan on retiring my mk40 to the safe for a bit once my supertuck arrives for the xd. I was leaning heavily towards the Sig over the glock when looking online though, but I have to say, I really like my XD. To each his own I guess!!!!

    I would go with keeping the XD. While many prefer it, I am not a fan of DA/SA for a CCW. That isn't to say I don't like Sigs.

    I didn't vote.

    I have a P220 and want an XD45. I'm keeping the Sig.

    I love the Sig, but want the larger magazine capacity of an XD for carry.

    If I shoot, I'm going to shoot alot. The more rounds without a mag exchange the better. IMHO

    which works better

    I own both, shoot both and would have to say which ever one you shoot better, like how it fits on your bod pick that one. Both will serve you well.
