Looking at buying a new gun, I have shot many kinds but I have never owned one myself. I looking at a 40 cal. I like the Sigs 226, 229, 239 and the Glock 22 and 23. If anyone could give me any advice or any experiences they have had, it would be helpful. Also, any place that has good deals and info. on guns.

Buy the weapon that feels the best in your hand and you shoot with consistent accuracy. They are all about personal preference. People don't understand why I like the Beretta 92, simply, I shoot it better than anything else because I trained with it the most. The handgun is all about putting down your enemy with minimal rounds fired. Not caliber, not make or model. If yo shoot it well, buy it!

Owning both a glock and sig I'd recommend the Sig. The model depends on what you're using it for and how much capacity you want. One of my sigs is a 239 .40 which holds 7+1 rounds and is a great concealment, backup, off duty weapon.

Skicop,
also ask youself what role you are going to want it to fill. Size is usually a factor for most for concealed carry, but some feel better carrying a large frame concealed. There was a decent article in one of the recent gun mags about concealing a large gun; tips and such. The big thing is carry whatever you shoot well with, as others have said. It's great to focus your training on one gun; although if shooting is more of a hobby to you, you'll enjoy owning different guns and using them all.
Guns also hold their value pretty well. If you try one out for a while and don't like it you'll always be able to sell it and get most of your money back.

Dan H is right about the role...If I'm hunting Death Knights, Scrags or Vores I prefer a nailgun or perforator!

Its pricey but i like the H & K USP Compact .40 I bought. After that i plan on buying a sig, than a glock 23 this is ofcourse after a while, not every other week or even other month.
I saw a sweet kimber that was $995 at a gun show yesterday.

I carry a glock 27 40cal with the mag extension. Easily conceals holds 10 in the mag and one in the pipe, and the hi cap magazines from other glock 40cals can be used for second backup mag if needed.

You can never go wrong with a Glock! The 23 is great for duty and small enough for off duty concealment. A friend of mine just bought the SIG 229R, it is real nice! Its double action only, but the trigger pull is comparable to a glock and it comes with the rail set up. Its i nice weapon. Over all it should be what ever your comfortable with.

Good luck in your choice.

I have the sig 239 with no complaints, I have never had any type of problems with the firearm. For my next purchase, I'm leaning towards the Glock 27.
