Yeah, I know that I'm comparing apples and oranges, but here is my question.
I am selling my Taurus 1911. I'm going to replace it with either a PD trade in Sig 239, nite sites and 3 mags or a new XD 45, plane sites and 2 mags.
Both fit my hand, both pull up and on target without adjusting. Both feel good in my hand.
The 2 differences are, obviously one is 40 cal and one is 45. I've carried a 40 cal in the past on duty. I always carried 180 gr Hydra-shoks. Ballistically they are not that much different. The other big difference is the price. I can get the Sig for $450 the XD comes in at $560.
I really like both guns, but mommy says that I can't spend that much.
