    They're both great guns, I have the Glock 19 and a Sig 226. I like the Sig slightly better.

    They're both great guns. I like a traditional double action gun like the sig more, but I prefer the trigger reset on the glock. Personally I'd get the glock. It all comes down to which fits your hand and which you like to shoot more.

    What everyone else said...

    Personally, I like Sig more than Glock though.

    Sig. You get your fair share of bad reviews (although most are good) on Glocks, but I've never read a bad review of a Sig. The only complaints I've heard were that they (at least 226's) were "too heavy." If you think a 226 is too heavy, then you're just a woman. My dad bought me a 226 when I was 14, and it felt fine to me then. Still does. Never had one jam/misfire/whatever either, and I've always been putting cheap stuff like Fiocchi through it.

    the only thing i dislike about my 229 is the stiffness of the DA pull because i'm a midget and can only get the last digit of my index finger on it. i have no leverage from that distance.

    Your trigger finger should never be as far as your first joint onto the trigger really, but have you looked at the short triggers yet?

    i have one. for some reason, my right hand's index finger can barely break it DA. its a struggle.

    left hand does it w/ no problems. i need to start jerking off right handed.

    the right gun is like the right pair of shoes... sure looks and brand-name comes into it, but you wouldnt buy a pair of shoes that weren't comfortable and didnt fit correctly... so dont buy a gun that doesnt fit YOU!

    I'd also like to say, I hate DA/SA pistols. Consistent trigger pull FTW

    seriously though....ive had sigs and glocks...while the sig is undoubtedly a very fine sidearm...i found myself selling them and going back to my glocks...its personal preference...some guys shoot their sigs better.

    sigs are great guns, well built, but as far as reliability, glocks are on top. there is a thread on ar15.com where a guy beats the hell out of a used old glock and it wont choke. he throws a glock and a sig in a bucket of sand or something muddy and the glock runs fine, and the sig fails to fire a single shot.

    Try both..but for the Sig, rent a DA/SA and a DAK version. Then the decision will be between a DAK Sig and a Glock :o

    Glock is lighter and easier to carry, but that being said I carry a Sig 229R daily.

    The Glock is so damn easy and user friendly. For a first gun you cant go wrong.
