    Interesting. I used the 1911 for a 20 years in the military, but had no real problems with my SIGs. Still thumb the slide release, and now thumb the decocker too!

    Yeah, I'm sure them Sig's are great for the people that like all them little levers,switches,and control buttons. What's that one just above that one that is to the immediate right of the little........never mind. Do the weapons come with schematic drawings?? BTW have you Sig guys seen the P239 SAS and the P229 SAS ?? Seems that they would make a good CC weapon. They're even "cleaner" than my Kimber. ----------

    It's not so much what controls are there but rather where they're positioned (opposite of the 1911 config). Every time I try to hit the decocker, I hit the slide release instead. Never had a problem with any of my other autos: Beretta, Ruger, etc ... only the Sigs. Really ticks me off too as a 220 w/ nightsights (or 245 for that matter) would be right up my alley.

    I was told that when I got my first Sig (a P220) that it wouldnt be my last.

    I just laughed and and rolled my eyes and said " Yeah right,whatever..."and never expected to buy another.

    That was 3 Sigs ago...

    And that's why I OWN a SIG.

    Because........ my 1911 is DEFINITELY not lefty friendly
    ....... I have revolvers but prefer an Auto.
    ........ After my P226 .40sw is loaded and decocked ,
    ALL I have to do for the first 13 shots is aim and press/pull

    Huh how do you figure a 1911 isnt lefty friendly ambi safety is all ya need to make it so rest of controls are right where easy hit with trigger finger compared to a sig making ya bend finger way to much to use decocker

    Lets see, Take down lever, decocker, slide release, Mag release on the SIG. The 1911 has safety, mag release, slide release...... Yup! That extra one will get you every time!!

    BTW have you Sig guys seen the P239 SAS and the P229 SAS ?? Seems that they would make a good CC weapon. They're even "cleaner" than my Kimber. ----------
    Oh yes, both those are beautiful. I'm really thinking about seeing if I can get the 229 version. Of course living in Maryland it will be at premium price!
