If a pistol is only a tool then get a Glock They work..That's all. But if you are one that sees more in a pistol than just a tool then you might want to look around at other alternatives.
A Sig can get expensive. But you can find a deal of you look around. CPO or LEO trade ins can be had around 500.00 give or take 50.00. With as Sig you get a really nice weapon. One that will olive up to the "To hell and back reliability" moniker. And it wont give you that woke up next to the ugly chick after a hard night of drinking feeling
At the end of the day no mater what it is it's only worth what you are willing to pay for it. If a Sig is too expensive then it's not worth it....To you. My two Sigs (226 & 229) I got for right at 500.00 per. To me they where worth every penny. But being mainly a 1911 guy I'm willing to pay pretty well for a weapon that in my opinion is more than a tool. It's more a functional work of art. I like how they look as well as how they function. A Sig in my opinion also fits in this category pretty well.
Thank you Drumjunkie, you summed up exactly what I meant.
It's like a $20 quartz Timex and an Omega Seamaster automatic will both tell you the time (Timex will even be more accurate). Not sure about the rest of y'alls but I'd take the Omega if I had a choice. Some may opt for the Timex because it take a better beating or because they can't afford the Omega (neither can I). Doesn't make either choice the wrong choice.
Bottomline: if all there is to guns is an efficient appliance that you press the trigger and it goes bang then, yeah, we should all just buy Glocks and companies like Wilson Combat, and STI should just stop making guns.
Same goes with knives. You can buy a good Spyderco for $200 and it will do everything you'd ever need a knife to do, but some can and will pay more for the privilege and pride of owning a handmade Chris Reeve Sebenza. Both will cut real well...
