This has never been a very active forum even on the old software. Dunno why I really thought it might be as they are a pretty popular gun but apparently not with folks who visit my site. Still I leave it up in case some fans of it drop in.
I have a P245 that I carry. I have found that for me the entire Sig line handles and points better than any other. I just dont post much about carry guns. While I have more than one they are not where my real interests fall when it comes to having fun with a gun. :grin:
After all, "best" is a highly variable statement when left unqualified. I don't think I can imagine a more beautiful design than the Colt Patterson - but don't ask me to carry one in a firefight! Beauty of workmanship and functionality has to go to the Smith Model 3, and for their day they were the best. Frankly, I think SIG's are ugly, and I got one, or I wouldn't be here. Don't misunderstand, I'm proud of my 239 in .40/.357SIG, and it is my choice for carry, but don't ask for my picture with it!
sigs are so good i just feel like that category is covered with the best it can be..
but most time i just keep it to my self ,,as folks dont like a braggart..
it ll show whats good about it at the range as it takes care of buisiness..
Most of us who own Sigs and are fans also own 1911's or some others.
We visit the site from time too time too see if there is a new report or too help out.
Sigs are pretty darn good. There is little too defend or say say about a good, reliable weapon.
I have three, SP2340, P225, and a P239. This is sort of like picking a favorite child. Each one has it's own, special place. The SP2340 in .40 was my first it was cheap, $ 515 out the door. Now with over 3500 rounds down the pipe and NEVER a failure. Looks as good as ever and soaks up the hottest .40 recoil with ease. Like me though it has a girth issue so it rarely gets to go out on the town in the summer. The P225 is like a gifted child, it does everything with ease. Small enough to not stand out in a crowd, but it's grip must have been custom fitted to my hand. My P239 in .40 S&W is like having Charles Barkley in the holster a little too short a little to heavy but a little too powerful inside is a good thing. My carry weapons don't have the legs that a Glock does but I have no illusions of putting down an insurrection singlehandedly. Those are my baby's, and what I see in them, you can see what you want.
I have a P220 that I carried on duty for a number of years. Never, ever gives me any trouble. Just point and shoot. I love it. I've forgot how many founds I've fired through it. Just keep it clean, light oil and it's good to go ANY WHERE, ANY TIME!!!
I'm a retired LEO, and I've had a bunch of Sigs, they always work and I've trusted them with my safe keeping for years. My favorites have always been the 220s and the 229s. I like Sigs well enough that I chose another Sig 220 for my retirement gun.
One of my current favorite Sigs is a GSR 1911. I can truthfully say that I've never had a bad SIG.
I bought a 226 in .40 because that is what I carry at work. It took me a long time and alot of shooting to see anything positive about it. Now that I am accustom to it, I can tell that it is very accurate , possibly more accurate than my Glock 34. Not so accurate as my S&W 25-5 however. Every time I shoot it, (mine or the companies) I like it a little more. The thing is surerbly reliable, it will feed empty cases into the chamber from the mag just as smoothly as loaded ones. I do have two criticisms that will not change however, it is very bulky and its ergonomics don't come close to Glocks. When shooting the glock 34 it is as though it is an extension of my arm and points naturally at the target. With my Sig I have to work at it and make a conscious effort at grip and trigger control.
this is not meant as a cut to Sig , BUT i owned - 1-220 , 2-226's , 1-225 , 1-228 , 2-239's & a 230 . all well built but none were considered Best .
If i want a single action auto then the 1911 is it !
if i want double action the i don't want all the decockers and controls . If i ever need a gun i don't want options i want to pull the trigger and see results . They all seemed somewhat behind the times ( IMHO ) and no i have not tried the new ones . Only posted to point out why I and maybe others are not fans . As far as a target gun it seemed good .
And i did not complain about the single action first shot double action next shot ! really don't see that as a big deal .
