    looks like my department is going to be going to the P220 .45ACP....leaving the G21 we had for the past 8 years

    The Sherriff’s dept near me runs P220s.

    The P220 was the first Sig that I shot, and it made me take notice. My P220 seems to be one of the easiest pistols for me to shoot really well without really having to try. It just seems to be a natural pistol for me.

    I am curious why the switch from Glock to Sig. Around here departments have mostly gone back to 9mm from .40 and the .45. Almost all Departments have been going Sig or
    continuing with Sig. Is it the Sig quality or special Sig pricing? The Sig P226 seems real popular here with our LEO's.

    Can’t really speak with authority to the reasoning for going to the .45 or Sig.

    My best guess on going with Sig is that Sig has made a concentrated effort to ramp up their LE sales and many departments find the DA/SA triggers as an extra layer of security against negligent discharges.

    .45 make a little l as sense to me fiscally, as Ammo/training costs are higher, and utility belt, vest weight is higher for similar round counts.

    Some departments may have their reasoning for needing heavier bullets in their jurisdiction.
