    the glock 30 is a compact the sig 220 is a full size. i rank the sig as a far better more reliable and more accurate gun than any glock.

    check out the xdm compact 45.

    it would be easier to conceal the glock.

    it really comes down to what feels good to you.

    my carry guns are:

    ruger lcp which is always in my pocket even if im carrying a more effective pistol.

    while i always have my lcp i cant always carry bigger guns but some of my carry guns when i can are in no special order:
    colt new agent 45acp
    colt commander lightweight 1911 in 45acp
    beretta m9a1
    beretta m9 inox compact
    sig p220
    xdm 45 compact
    xdm full size 45acp
    bersa thunder
    colt 1911 series 70

    P220 carry has a shorter barrel and slide than the full size but the same grip so concealing will be more of a challenge. Glock 30 will definitely be easier to conceal. You might want to check the glock 30s out since it has the slimmer slide. Both are excellent firearms and would serve you well. Gonna come down to personal preference.

    Both are heavy, G30 fully loaded is a on the heavy side for a compact model and P220 is just because of how it's made. The G30 is definitely easier to conceal but there are better options out there. XDS45 is one of them. However, if your decision is based strictly on how well you can conceal the weapon the G30 will be the way to go.

    I carry a G30SF off duty all the time, no problem concealing it for me...... I see there are Glock haters ;) however they are accurate right out if the box, reliable, and durable !!

    Please guys don't compare glock and sig. When sig makes a striker fired gun or glock makes a da/sa hammer fired gun then by all means compare them. Right now sig should be compared to the likes of hk or cz. Compare glock to m&p, fns, sr, xd and so one

    Don't mind them. They live in Kommiefornia and can't enjoy the true potential of a Glock out there.

    Glocks high capacity magazines?

    I got a p226 SAO with 20 round mags,had and carried a g30sf,was a good gun for me,but not great. I prefer my sig. And would love a P220 in SAO to match my p226.

    Glocks are outstanding weapons,but not anymore outstanding than any other major manufacturer, unless it fits an individual shooter better than the others.

    Not anymore. I'm in Texas now.

    That basically sums up my thoughts on Glock.

    They're not the end-all, be-all weapon.

    Couple of more reasons I would, and do choose my Glock30 over my Sigs when carrying. If I drop or something happens and ding up my handgun, I won't be as sad if I scratch up my Glock as if I did my $800 to $1200 Sigs. Glock is far more comfortable and lastly, and I really hope this never happens, I don't want my handgun siting in a evidence vault waiting for court.

    I recently bought a ATI 1911 Commander size. Reason I bought it is I also have a Springfield Champion Operator LW and while it's not a $1000 piece it was still pricey and I don't wanna scuff it up. I've taken up hiking and wanted a 1911 to haul around but didn't want that Springfield out in the elements Besides, it was a good excuse to buy another handgun.
