    I just sold my Sig 229 DAK and now i've got that money burning a hole in my pocket. Put the money in the bank? HAHAHAHAH yeah right, I need to buy another gun with it.

    I'm a huge HK fan now, already bought a USPc9 and a USP45f and have the urge to buy a P2000sk, but i'm wondering if I should just get a Glock 26 instead. I LOVE USP's, but I hate the P2000 but the P2000sk looks cool, never handled one though since they're so rare around here.

    My fear is that I will buy the Glock 26 and then feel the need to then go out and buy a G19 and G17 as well :o.

    I'm a brand loyal person and I love HK, so I don't know if I want to buy a Glock 26 since I already own a USPc9 and a USP45f and the P2000sk is basically the same thing as a G26, so why not just stick with HK?

    Help me decide.

    Even though DAK is awesome, I wanted a DA/SA gun for carry and I hate the DA/SA control setup on Sigs, also it was too heavy for everyday carry- at the time I didn't realize how heavy it was when carrying until I carried my USPc9 for the first time, feels like I don't even have a gun on me and that's just in a cheap Uncle Mikes $9 IWB holster.

    The P2000sk is a lot different than the USP and USPc, they're night and day.

    I've been thinking of getting a Sig P229 .40 DAK... I've heard nothing but great things about it elsewhere. Why do you guys not like it? Whats wrong with the DAK, and whats the difference in trigger feel from the DA/SA?

    There's nothing wrong with the DAK trigger, it's awesome and way better than the DA pull on both of my HK's. I just don't like carrying around a heavy Sig and I always wanted a DA/SA carry gun. If the DA/SA control locations on Sigs didn't suck so much I probably would have just gotten another 229 in DA/SA.

    The DAK trigger pull is a lot lighter than the DA pull on a standard DA/SA Sig.

    Best way I can describe the DAK trigger is a butter knife going through a hot stick of butter, just incredible smoothness and a great feel.

    Ah, thanks for the explanation.
    If the P229 is so heavy, why is it described as such a good carry gun? I've held one, and I thought it was definitely lighter than my Glock 17, for sure. But other than that, I dont have much to compare it to.

    Some people don't care if it's heavy, I didn't even realize how heavy it was until I strapped on a USP Compact which felt like a S&W Airweight revolver it was so light, barely even could tell it was there.

    I'm also glad to see you got to sell your Sig. Congrats.

    I think after picking up a P229 my next gun will probably be an HK. Most likely a USP .45 or some sort of USP Compact. I really like HK's. After that, if I really like my P229, I'll probably pick up a P226 just for the larger frame.

    Then I'm on to carbine rifles. LOL. Yum.

    I'm sorry, but those Steyr's are so ugly.
