I agree regarding the Glocks.
Regarding the SIGs, most of the shooters at the ranges that I see with SIGs are either (1) Europeans (especially Swiss) or (2) high income.
Sigs are very expensive guns. For your money, you get a really accurate weapon.
Most of the 1911 shooters I know are x-military. It is a comfort level thing.
My own 45ACP is a CZ although I considered getting a Sig as well. They are both very accurate, only the CZ is simpler to field strip and reassemble, otherwise they are quite similar, with the CZ also by concidence costing 1/2 that of the Sig.
I am also x-military, and I actually wore and walked my post wearing a Springfield 1911A1 so there is a strong comfort level factor there. However I really loved my Smith & Wesson Model 39, especially the double action trigger, and that is what the CZ gives me that a 1911 knock off would not give me -- a double action.
The Sigs are also double action.
