whats your guys's take on these two guns? i know most people like the Glock cuz its the "cooler" gun, but i really think its not for everyone n the Sig p226 has its upsides
Pretty different/dissimilar guns. The only real similarities are that they are both 9mm (assuming the P226 you shot was a 9mm version) and they are both full-size guns.
The Glock 17 is a relatively lightweight pistol with a polymer frame. It is striker-fired. The Glock should run you between $450-$550.
The Sig P226 has an aluminum frame, rather than a polymer frame, and the slide on the Sig is quite a bit thicker, making it a noticeably heavier pistol. Also, the Sig has a hammer and is a hammer-fired gun. The Sig has the capability of being fired both in single-action and double-action modes. The Sig should run you between $800-$1000.
Like others have said, because these guns are so different, it depends on what you think after shooting both.
