    Sig 226 vs. Glock 19

    Alright, seriously... this is the last time.

    I got to see an FNP-9 today. Fairly impressed, but not impressed enough. Maybe down the road I'll get one. But right now, I need no doubts at all in my next gun....none.

    So...Sig 226 or G-19

    I hate decisions.

    and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

    I have the P226 with beavertail, night sights, SRT and short trigger. You couldn't give me the Glock if it was free in exchange.

    Not hatin' on Glocks, just love my Sig and its tack-driving abilities.

    A used P226? That seems like a very good price on a newer model P226, and certainly a fair price on even a heavily used one.

    I am a SIG-o-phile, and Glocks do nothing for me, but I would say in this case it comes down to what feels best in your hand. Both are exceptionally reliable. The new 20-rd mags and SCT grips make me appreciate my P226 all over again.

    Well you will see a pretty noticeable difference in concealability. One is a full size gun the other is a mid sized compact. There also will be a difference in weight. The p226 is a world class gun and will serve you well...but as a CCW you would probably be better served with the g19, or if you have to go to a comparable Sig look at a p228 or a p229...I personally recommend the p228. There are still several new and slightly used p228 out there.

    Not worried one bit about "CCWability" i have a Kel Tec PF-9 that i use for that.

    This would be a winter carry and target gun.

    Favor Glock for carry

    I have both a Glock 19 and a Sig P226 in 9mm. Each has a 15 round magazine but the Sig is a much larger and heavier gun than the Glock. I actually consider the P226 as too large for concealed carry, while the Glock 19 is a good size for CCW. And perhaps this is just me, but I can shoot the Glock better than the Sig, based on a lot of targets and practice sessions.

    So I would much prefer the Glock for carry and maybe even range use, compared to the P226.

    Given that statement, I don't think the Glock even needs to be considered. Grab the 226 and be very, very happy you did!

    OK given those conditions...by all means get the 226, and God Speed.

    I would take the sig over the glock... Perhaps a 229 or something around that size... I carry a P220 from time to time and I have found sigs to not only be lazer accurate but very reliable. I have shot glocks over the years but I don't like the trigger safty system and a I prefer an all metal gun.

    I'm a Sig nut, too, but I have nothing against the Glocks--especially the 19. Both the P series Sigs and the Glocks are great platforms, time proven over and over. I sometimes carry my P226 and more often my P220. With a VMII or a good pancake OWB holster, the "full-size" Sigs (which, are not much different than a Commander size 1911) are not all that difficult to conceal-especially in cooler weather. The P226 is roughly 30 ozs. empty. 16 rounds of ammo ups the ante a bit weight wise.

    So far as accuracy is concerned, the 226 is pretty hard to beat. It's my preferred gun for IDPA. I like the 226 enough that I just picked up a railed version to go with my German gun. After getting my first P series pistol (P245) a few years ago, I traded my Kimber 1911 for a used P220 and have never looked back. I'm up to four P series Sigs now and I don't miss the 1911.

    Check out Bud's Gun Shop online--they had some CPO P226s at a very good price!
