Default 1911's vs Sig P-226

Having owned and carried both It is my humble opinion that the 1911 is preferable because of the SA trigger pull when carried cocked and locked. Most people when faced with a life threatening situation with a stiff DA trigger pull will jerk the first shot. The only way to avoid this is training and most people seem to have an aversion to putting in the requisite practice. When I was still in the military we put in a lot of time training with whatever we preferred to carry and there were still people who couldn't get used to the DA trigger pull. Most were in love with the increased magazine capacity and the general lack of recoil and muzzle flip of the 9mm. I preferred the 1911 in 45ACP then and still do; when you shoot an adversary with a 45ACP they tend to stay shot. As far as unintentional discharges are concerned, this can be alleviated with proper training.

Another vote for the Sig 226, and I have carried both also. As well as these

i've never shot a handgun more fun to shoot than 226 in 357 sig. i think the reason it hasn't caught on more is because the ammo is expensive. there's a reason the ammo is expensive. 25 plus yard shots at cans, bottles, and heads on targets are effortless with 357 sig. i've never shot past 50 yards because i don't want to hit anyone behind the dirt mound. this round is the most reliable semi-automatic handgun load of all in my opinion (i've shot 9, 10, 40, 45). i've never had a failure to feed with this gun/round. not one hiccup. with a mec-gar magazine you can shoot 16 shots before a re-load. the recoil is snappy and accurate rapid fire is a breeze.
