Spring Break this week. Took the boys (14 and 9) shooting today. I let them run two mags each through my Glock 17 and Sig 226. They both liked the Sig better and shot the Sig some more.

Sig Wins!


Also Wolf ammo did shoot in both of their Colts AR's but not my Bushy.

They are very discriminating young men. They need to experience a Hi Power.

And thanks for answering my question on Bushy/Wolf. I'll save my meagre ammo $.

Probably a good early sign they'll prefer AR's over AK's.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 12:09:07 PM EDT
They're obviously well-heeled young men.

Never has been a comparison and never will.

did they immediatly stick their noses high in the air gain an attitude of superiority?

I'm sure they enjoyed not having to throw the Sig down-range after firing a round.


By the way, what is the effective range of a Glock after "the pin is pulled"

i love the sig product for the materials and general workmanship. that said, i can't shoot a sig worth a shit. it just doesn't *fit* my hand.

i spent years trying specifically not to buy a glock, but in the end i couldn't deny that it just works for me.

Too funny.

If I had a dollar for every shot I took with my Glock that DIDNT explode in my hand, I would have enough money to buy several more Glocks. There are other things that I like the looks of more, but I have yet to own anything that is as reliable and easy to shoot as a Glock. Oh, and I have somehow managed not to blow mine up, even though I shoot it regularly. I must be doing something wrong. Everyone keeps saying that Glocks explode if you look at them wrong...all mine ever does is shoot without any mechanical failures...maybe mine is broken

you should send it back.

your pistol should never have left the factory.

you just need to light the fuse.


it's too bad that glock's KB rate is just about the same as every other major gun manufacturer.

Well... everyone knows that Sig is better than Glock, and everyone knows the Browning Hi-Power is the best 9mm combat handgun out there,

Good to hear you're statting off the lads on teh right foot! {S}

I'm not that big a fan of the classic sigs
.

I had a 226 and it failed on me after only 2,500 rounds. the wire connecting the trigger to the hammer/disconnector area snapped during firing. Didn't have many rounds through the gun. That kinda shook me. I mean I understand FTF and FTE as one thing, but something like that isn't exactly a simple thing you can fix with one or two movements of your wrist and hands.

Kinda has me on edge at the moment.


Currently own a glock that's jammed on me once, but I still see it as better than the sig's problem.

Very smart young men you have there. P226 is a Cadillac.

But I gotta be honest, I also love my Combat Tupperware!

Thank you!

I'll be sure to consult the children of Alabama the next time I need to make important decisions on which handgun to buy!

Do they happen to have any hot stock tips?
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 6:15:43 PM EDT
While I don't consider Glocks as bad, IMHO Sigs are clearly the superior handgun on the market. The problem is they look so damn nice I hate to use them. They fit me like a glove though and shoot nice tight groups. Far better than the Glocks I have shot.

Just wait until they try a 1911

Glocks and SIGS are both decent guns but if I have to choose, I'll take the SIG...
