I'm trying to decide, cause they both are in the price range I'm looking for

I've been reading up about both and I'm still stuck

I want the Sig Pro cause it reminds me of the P226

I have no experience with the sig but I have a FN-40 and it's a great pistol. I like the adjustable back straps and the balance of the pistol. Holding 14+1 40 S&W rounds is also sweet and it's still slim and light. I've owned my FN-40 for almost two years and have put a few thousand rounds through it with out a misfire or a jam. It is almost too easy to field strip and the mags are stainless steel. I like my S&W M&P better but the FNH runs a close second

+1 on the M&P

I've just heard so many good things about the Sig, I'd love to get a P226, but I just cant afford one and I figured the Sig Pro was the next best thing

the FNP9 looks good, but it doesnt have alot of accessories (such as holsters, sights, etc)

I'm actually also thinking about getting the Taurus PT1911, but I read some bad reviews about it being poorly built or something, a 1911 would be awesome (I'd love to get a 1911 in 9mm)

I say get the Sig-Sauer

You might search for used P220s and 226s. They have been a common law enforcement gun for many years and at times there are alot of them out on the used market. Generally the used models can be had a significant discount over new, especially if you don't have to have an accessory rail. Most LE trade-in guns have only been shot a couple hundred rounds a year (if that) and about the worst thing you'll have to deal with is some holster wear, which I think adds character.

Here is a used P226 9mm that will be on Gunbroker.com for the next 10 days. It has a Buy It Now price of $550. I would think $550-$600 would be a good average price for used pieces.

Good Luck.

The SigPro are the polymer version of the P226, is an awesome reliable longlasting gun.... the local police of my hometown (Maracaibo) use SigPro as sidearm, in here there's no concept of maintenance like U.S and those SigPros still like new....
+1 on the SigPro

There isn't much that I have found wrong with the new PT1911's from Taurus. A great gun for the money. Don't believe the Taurus haters...

Plus one on the Sig. I have a 228 and it's always been reliable, durable and puts rounds on target. Really good company, but you will pay a little more for them...

I had a SigPro chambered for the .357 sig round. It was light, had good balance, and was accurate. I sold it a couple of years ago. The only problem I had was on one of the factory mags. The butt of the mag came off. Really annoying and made that mag useless. Another good thing about Sig is the re-sale value. I sold my Sig Pro for the same price I bought it for and used it for over three years.

Oh yeah.. If you get the sig pro you have to get the sig pro laser attachment. Its another $250 but is worth every penny!!
