Oh some Sig shooting will definately be in order. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone that owns one. I can try to rent one at the range, but I think the range only has Glock rentals.
Sounds like most of you really liked them? I am not a lefty, so those issues won't pertain, although I do think you guys get passed over sometimes in the design phase.
My real issue is that XDs are about $450-$500 for most, but Sigs are $700 and up from what I see. That's a BIG increase for me. I may be looking at the wrong ones, or maybe my range only carries the upper end models?

Both are great guns imho. But it was price that swayed me to the xd. And I like it just as well. If I could have afford the sig yes I would own one. But Im happy with the xd as well and half the cost of the sig I was looking at. Have a great day.
That's the price for new ones.My real issue is that XDs are about $450-$500 for most, but Sigs are $700 and up from what I see.
Think of it this way in practical terms - a polymer gun is always going to be cheaper to manufacture than a metal one due to machining alone.
In buying a gun that you intend to shoot, the price of the weapon pales in comparison to the ammo you're going to put through it and related accessories.
That said, I own 7 or 8 Sigs (I'm not even sure any more), and have always thought the XD was a fine gun - at the old HS2000 price, not what Springfield thinks they're worth today.
