I remember a guy from FL who said you don't get the opportunity to go home and get your combat shotgun, rifle or 1911 w extra mags. You may be forced to fight w whatever you have on you. Somehow, that always stuck w me and I remembered first Rule of Winning a Gun Fight - having a Gun...

Not necessarily...more ammo don't count for jack if you can't hit the intended target in the first place.

Everyone now a days is worried about large magazine capacity. The 1911 was our nations combat handgun for over 75yrs and it had a 7rd mag. It is still one of the most carried pistols in the CCW area. Not to mention how many elite units are carrying it just because it is what it is.

The Sig P220 has the same mag capacity as the 1911, they are both great pistols. But alot of you are right about the amount of ammo you carry. The more ammo you are carrying the more ammo you will shoot.

My answer is
I sold my H&K p2000sk to buy a Kimber ultra covert II.
I then wanted a pistol that would be a dedicated range pistol so I picked up a Sig Sauer 1911 platinum elite.
After shooting the Sig 1911 I found I was better with the Sig then the Kimber and even with all of the Kimber's bells and whistles the Sig shot better to me so the Sig became my carry weapon. I didn't want my range pistol to be a Ultra so I sold it and bought myself a Sig220X6.
I have yet to shoot a pistol in the same class that out performs either.
I have done what I felt to be upgrades to the 1911 and it still comes in under what the less equiped Kimber cost.

Sig may not be the best but its close enough...

I was a die hard HK fan when I fisrt started shooting. Now I'd take a Sig.
Probably the polymer frame of the HK and gritty triggers compared to Sigs thats done it for me.

I dont mind the polymer frame but I have two USPs and I'm with ya on the triggers. They do make a match grade trigger, LEM triggers and a competition triggers but it's expensive to ship gun back to company.

For me its not so much the polymer frame but rather I prefer steel frame handguns for the added weight. The HK's I have have the match triggers same with my Sigs, the HK's all needed some break in or polishing whereas the Sigs were smooth out of the box

What's up with the Comic Sans MS? It's hard to read.

Morgo: did you disassemble and polish the parts yourself ? My gunsmith refuses to work on them. Evidently, they must be reassembled in some order or need specialized tools but once bit twice shy kinda thing. Had one hell of a time putting adj sights on the USP 45 Compact.

According to HK, the full size and compact USP have the same size dovetail but my gunsmith said that was sheep dip and had to use special files to get the job done.

Are the Match grade triggers worth it ? Which Sig did you buy ?
