Any Sig fans out there?

I am thinking about selling my HK USP 45 and getting a Sig P220 Elite. Anyone have any good or bad experiences with the Sig? I know the mag capacity is less, but the Sig has fewer problems jamming, even with cheap ammo. I also like that you can attach a Crimson Trace laser, a tactical light and that the grip is bobtailed.

Glocks are not authorized for me to use. I dont know why, but they dont like them. One of the reasons I got rid of my H&K was that it has a tendancy to jam if you use dirty ammo or put a lot of rounds through it.
Probably because there is no selective safety. I like the Sigs, but not the big ones. I'm partial to the P239 series. HK's are wonderful guns, I wish I still had my USP compact 9.

I noticed on your first post that one of the things you liked about the 220 was that you could put a laser on it. This is not meant to be mean or anything, but if you are shooting with a laser you are shooting wrong. Front sight focus!!! Do not shoot with a laser, it can be knocked out of alignment, or if you get used to it and it goes dead your muscle memory will not save your life. Plus, it leads a nice path back to you as well, especially in CQ smokey shooting. Just my 2cents here, I'm sure others will have something to say about this.:hide:
No offence taken or dickery detected.

I have found I can put lead where I want it a little quicker with the laser since the eyes are not what they used to be. I am by no means dependant on it and shoot just fine without a laser. I have had a Crimson Trace on my Beretta for the past 6 years and have not had any problems. I train both with and without the laser because I believe that if something is going to malfunction, it will probably do it when you need it most. Lasers are no good in daylight, either. I think that a lot of people that do not shoot well think that a laser will magically improve their shooting. Not true. If your technique sucks, a laser makes no difference.
That's great to hear, sounds like you have a good balance going there between the two aiming options. I couldn't agree with you more about the people that lack the skills. I've seen people throw more money at doo-dads promising to increase the skill than I care to remember. All they do is decrease wallet size. If only that money was spent on professional training and diligent practice:shaking:

You are right about the laser showing where you are in certain settings. Thats where the training comes in and you have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of using the laser. Or a flashlight, for that matter. At least with a flashlight, you can blind the bad guy.
Roger that on the Surefire light in the face!!!!

Be careful out there....
