Which model do you have?

I'm still considering selling my P226. Can't shoot it.

The shooting dynamics of those guns escape me. I just can't seem to get the rhythm and control down. At this point, I see no reason to keep learning when I shoot perfectly fine with my Glocks and other toys. I hear nothing but good stuff about the accuracy of Sigs, but alas- I can't seem to shoot them right.

It did take some getting used to at first, but after many many many rounds downrange, I love the way it shoots. I still like the glock too, I am looking at a Glock 26 right now for a back up, a little easier to conceal carry. It's either that or an H&K P2000SK.. still debating, I want to do a side by side test and see which I like better.

HK's are good guns....awful triggers though. I have a P30 that I'm tempted to part ways with. AWFUL trigger.

Glock 19 and 26 are a hard duo to beat.

I used a Glock 21 before, it was cool. Definitely going to test both out before I decide

I love my Glock 27. Great gun and it shoots very well. I've become less and less a fan of the .40S&W cartridge and more satisfied with the 9mm 147gr; but for a carry gun, the .40 caliber certainly can do its job and keep me happy.

I looked into the P2000SK, but the Glock was so much more simplistic for carry. That, and it was significantly cheaper. That always helps.

Really? I have yet to shoot the P30. I was considering getting an HK45 and a P30L. I'll have to shoot them and see. I've shot a USP Compact .40 and I really didn't like it at all. I also shot a Mk23 and loved it like a naked supermodel. So, seems like HK's have both ends of the spectrum covered then, huh?


You know what trigger REALLY sucks? The Sig P250. TERRI-f*ckin-BLE.

The P30/45 feels amazing in the hands. It's like grabbing a firm pair of breasts....just feels right. The SA trigger is pretty hard NOT to beat. My cheapo Taurus had a better trigger imo. That's without a doubt my biggest complaint of the gun. Definitely shoot before purchasing...

Mk23 is a different beast though

If you're talking about the G26, you really do need to get night sights. It's a defensive handgun, and may need to be used at night. Glock tritium sights are pretty good, but I believe there is a huge backorder on them right now from the factory; something like 4-6 months. Trijicon night sights are readily available and are excellent. Trijicon still owns something like 60-70% of the market share of night sights, and it's for a good reason. Meprolight tritium sights are also very nice and readily available.

My understanding is that Trijicon IS now the OEM for glock sites.

My last factory G19 with night sites were Trijicon marked and sharper than my previous G17 with night sites.

One was out and I sent the slide in for fast and painless replacement without a receipt.

They are amazing especially sitting on my night stand.

People dont think about it, but its much easier to actually find your gun in the dark as well as aim it.

If you like trijicon night sights on the handguns, check out Ameriglo. Their Pro operator series are amazing, two small rear dots and a huge front dot. Still gives you the 3 dot configuration but allows you to shift your focus onto the front sight. THey use trijicon vials (the best imo). Use the coupon code "grady" straight from their website and get 25% off.

Here they are on a M&P:

This is my understanding of Glock's night sights, per my agency armor- Glock originally used Trijicon sights, then started to ship with their own sights. It's unknown which company's tritium they used, however. Right now, there's a huge backlog for factory Glock night sights, so Glock is shipping with Trijicons installed again.

But yeah, a lot of people don't understand how crucial night sights are to low light operation. I clear buildings and houses on a daily-or should I say nightly-basis. Twice per year we do training shoots at night. Without tritium night sights, none of it would be possible.

Tactical shotguns are a blast. We have the Wilson Combat Professional (Remington 870) at work, and it's a damn good gun. Ours have the pistol grip stock. Overall a solid gun.
