Yep!

Also big, clunky, and heavy compared to modern poly-framed pistols. Please no flame here - I do own, and enjoy, a SIG, a 1911, Walther P38, several revolvers...etc. They are just older technology weaponry.

WOW some interesting thoughts do I own sigs yes a total of 5 of them. However for home defense I have my G22 loaded and sitting in the night stand as we speak. However when I'm walking the streets I'm usually carrying my P228 and I feel very comfortable and confident with it because I train with it. Are Sig expensive yes but then again so are funerals.

Beretta and H&K, can't keep up.
Last two USPSA. Production nationals were won with a DA/SA gun. In fact, last year first, second, AND third place were all DA/SA guns.

On the other hand, none were Sigs. Seem none of the top shooters shoot a real Sig, including Sigs top shooter. (Sorry, I don't consider a Sig slide on an STI frame to be a Sig?)

I'd love to own a BMW or Mercedes Gullwing. But I can afford my 08 Saturn. They all could get me where I need to go.

When the pinheads at the lottery finally draw the right numbers (mine) I'll own Sigs (and a Mercedes Gullwing!) until then, my Glock is just fine.

Love my Glocks!! Especially my Gen 4 21 and 30SF. Than I just got into the Hk and Sig world. Glocks are a great tool that are ultra dependable. Hk's and Sigs are like driving around in a Ferrari! The fit and finish and the thought that goes into these guns are unreal. It's so hard to describe till you actually experience them.

I don't know why...but Sig pistols seem to be a whole lot more popular on the Sig Forum than Glock Talk.

Sigís are just too darned expensive for me. Iíve shot one and I liked shooting it, but Iíve never owned one. Iíve heard theyĎre great guns, and I kinda like the way they look. But their price is just too high for me.

Thatís one manís opinion.

I live in Alabama, and the reason would be $$$$. I own a Sig 220 stainless elite. Very accurate/ dependable, close run with my customized 1911 colt gold cup, but it is heavy compared to my G20 with a full mag.

yes, the sigs are"pricey", but so are hks, and a battery of 1911s. price shouldn't be the only reason one buys or doesn't buy a certain firearm.
it is the precieved useability of this gun or another, imho.
price is a factor ,sure, but shouldn't be the only one.

I'd venture a guess that the popularity of 1911 pistols has taken a lot of the discretionary income for higher priced handguns away from Sig.

I like sigs personally. I like the decocker, so I can carry Mex carry and not be concerned about blowing my rump off. I like My M1911's for the same reason, PLUS, I like the way they feel and handle and shoot. What's not to like !


$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Is the biggest reason people pass them by.

They are indeed the G10's, Black and gray. As for the pirahna mascus Yes !

They are pretty nice grips, and the cool thing is, like a cameleon, (sp) thay seem to strangly blend in with the surroundings..
