My usp's double stack and overall ergonomics just fit me better. As to which one is better,,, I don't think that can be answered. Not by me anyways. It all ends up to each shooters personal preferences.
The Sig P226 is also a double stack mag. Are you sure you did not shoot a P220 or a P225/P6? Those are single stack mags.

But you are correct about it being up to he individual shooter. I love my Sig's and XD's but not fond of yhe Glock. Do not like the grip angle.

Very possible it was the p220 then, it definitely was single stacked. Thnx for the correction, I'm alao nor a giant glock fan for no other reason than the grip angle, otherwise fine weapons.

Sig hands down for me. I can't think of a better pistol in the world (my opinion of course) than a Sig P220.

I almost bought a Sig220 for IPSC but I went w the Colt Combat Elite. Easier to upgrade gear and fine tune for specific task. Sig does make competition grade guns, even a really sweet Long Slide but the cost is approx $2.5K.

See the Buying first 1911 guide thread, at that price point, custom 1911s from the masters become feasible.

Even in spite of the lower mag capacity?

Absolutely. In my hands the feel of the Sig is far superior. With some practice you can get mag changes done in a hurry and although not impossible, it is very unlikely I'll need to use an entire magazine without having a chance at a tactical reload. That being said...on duty I carry my M&P .45 which gives me 11 rounds ready to go. Couple other guys in the department carry the M&P as well, so we can share mags if necessary.

I choose SIG.

As far as magazine round count. I feel that's it's WAY over rated. Most encounters where 2 citizens, one bad one good, end up having to deal with one another it's usally over after 1 shot. Very seldom to never are you going to be in a law enforcement shoot out where you're gonna need 18 rounds.

So to pass on a gun you really like because of round count is silly imo.

Good point. But what about in terms of combat use? More is obviously better right?

In terms of capaticy for a GI soldier yes, more ammo is better. But more ammo also has a dark side. Having more rounds can lead to less fire disapline. that's why a team of seals can take a compound full of guards with ak's while advancing only with a side arm.
