Need some opinions!!
I currently own an HK USP and I really like the feel, fit, and it carries very well. I have an opportunity to trade or for a sig 229 with night sites. I've really had an itch for a sig, but I'm more worried about which one is going to be the "better" gun in the long run. They are both quality, and expensive. I just need an opinion.

That's a tough one. It would really be up to your personal preference though. I own both and like both. Have you tried the Sig to weigh the differences to make a sound decision with no regrets?

I'm not seeing a lot of advantages to giving up a sure

thing for a maybe. Both are quality, but IMO, HK is

better. Have you tried "Glow-on" on the HK sights?

Prime with a dab of flat white, and when it dries,

use the Strontium paint on it.

I've really heard alot of good things about both, but I know sigs can be temperamental. The USP really has a good rep and is really really soundly made. I'm just stuck.

I think the 229 is a carry version of the 226. They are both great brands. I recommend trying to own both.

I do not really care for the 229. Grip is too short. USP is a very good pistol. The most accurate service .40 I have ever fired. WTS, the USP is a bit top heavy and follow up shots are slightly slower than the Sig

Why not buy a Sig.
One cannot have enough quality firearms.

Keep it. If not, you will miss it. Buy a sig down the road when you can

Aaaand /thread. But really, unless youre dying to try something new or just want a change of pace (something im guilty of doing regularly). Keep what you have

I own the P226 and full size USP .40. Not sure. I like them both a lot. I carry the HK though. The polymer gun is great for the humid, wet and muddy environment I hunt in. HK has safety, Sig does not. I use the Sig for competition and plinking. I would not trade either of them.
