Howdy all – New/old member here meaning I use to be a member here a while back but I guess due to non-usage that account was deleted(?) so I had to create a new one.

So this is probably a common theme here but I’m a long time Glock guy who’s becoming more of a Sig guy. Kind of funny because I almost started my shooting life as a Sig guy...

Way back in the day when I went to buy my first handgun, I didn’t know a lot about the various guns of the time and I didn’t have a lot of money. For a number of reasons that I won’t bore you with now, my final decision came down to a Sig P226 and Glock 17. I really liked the Sig but went with the Glock mostly because of the price (the Sig was $150 more at the time) and I wasn’t a fan of DA/SA triggers. I’m still not but it’s not a complete show stopper for me now.

Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I coughed up the extra money for the Sig which would have been one of those West German models that everyone covets today. Lesson for you young ones out there… I get we all have budgets we have to work within but try not to base your decisions in life on price. Every single time I’ve ever done that I have ended up regretting it. Wait and save just a little longer to get what you really want. If you don’t you will probably end up regretting it too.

So anyway, I have been shooting Glocks ever since and they have done well by me but I never fell for the “perfection” hype. They have short comings like everything else. Because of that, I use to try all the new “Glock killers” when they first came out (SA XD, S&W M&P, etc.) but they never offered enough improvement to make switching worth it.

I guess that’s why I waited so long to try the new 320 line but I finally did get around to trying both the P320 and P365 and I’m loving them! I like the grip better, I like the trigger better and most importantly, I found I’m noticeably more accurate with them then I am with my Glocks (even after shooting them for 25+ years).

I will miss the simplicity, cheap mags and availability of holsters and such. The one thing I’m not liking about the P320 line is all the variations there are. Seems like a lot of changes for a platform that’s not been on the market that long? On the other hand, that does mean Sig is constantly designing, innovating and listening to their customers which is something Glock hardly ever does which is good but it does create a lot of questions for someone like me just getting into the platform. I am looking forward to learning though!

Anyway, Just wanted to say howdy… Howdy Big Grin

Welcome back to the forum!

Maybe you can get that West German P226 someday...


My other Sig is a Steyr...

Thanks. I did get a P226 Legion SAO a couple of years ago that I absolutely love and have been looking for an MK-25 for a while now. Those 2 should fully satisfy my 226 desires for the foreseeable future.
