The 226 IMO is one of if not the best semi auto pistol made. I own it's baby brother the 229. I do like the 92 and have shot it a lot but the Sig is made better and will hold its value more IMO.

Good luck

Just to add a little on what I said earlier, so as not to sound like a 92fs fanboy. I do intend on buying a sig p226 at some point. Why not have both?!

If I had the money, I never would have had to make the decision

I'd own them both, then maybe a glock.

Nah, no glock

Beretta's a good gun, but I like the ergo's on SIGs better. I don't like the fixed front sight on the 92.

I have had a 92A1 for a couple years now, but a 226 is a

top rated gun.

I would say, if you have big hands, and prefer the

92A1 grip, get the Beretta.

Otherwise, get the SIG.

I guess it depends on the price. If the sig is somewhat "reasonably" priced, I will go with it for sure.

Then I'd have to wait till my next pay check to be able to shoot it lol. It's gonna be a last minute decision.

I did decide to go with the sig for all of you who care. Partially because they didn't have any berettas. Not a very good selection of anything actually.

The price was lower then the maximum I told myself I'd be willing to pay.

Put 200 rds through at the range today and had only one FTE. It happened when my gf was shooting it and she doesnt have the full concept of form and how to hold the gun, only second time shooting a gun for her.

And she caught a little bit of ricochet off the bar. It hit her in the neck and burned her a little. Now she is even more apprehensive to shoot. I'm sure she'll get over it soon. She enjoys shooting otherwise.

Turn offs of SIG, kind of blocky on the slide.
Turn offs of the berreta, exposed barrel makes it easy to jam, grip is far from great, and has roughly an inch of unnecessary size.
1-3 in terms of issues. SIG wins. Not considering price of course.

Her shot hit the steel bar holding the target at our local gun range. A fragment somehow came back and hit her neck. She's alright. A little freaked out. Showed her how important safety glasses are.
