B/c they want to? Just a thought. As to why I didn't make the comparison of the M&P to the Glock, or any other gun, is that I really like the P320C and wanted to compare and contrast b/c there are a lot of other folks who are looking to choose btwn the two. I like the M&P, but frankly, it really doesn't compare well with the Glock or the P320, IMO. Glock is used world wide, and has been for years. Sig was just awarded the contract for the P320, which is pretty huge, and it will likely launch this particular gun into world wide use in time. M&P not only doesn't have any military contracts, it is seemingly fading when you consider all the other options (Glock, HK VP, Sig P320, PPQ and FNS), and I think the same could be said for the SA XD line of guns. They just don't compare world wide to the line up I just mentioned.

Another reason I wanted to draw this particular comparison is b/c Sig is the only gun maker that has produced a head to head competitor to the Glock 19. Notice this is not a comparison of Sig to Glock, but the Sig P320"C" to the Glock "19". These are two guns that I think are the best offerings on the market as it relates to a true do it all gun. There simply isn't another gun that offers the user what these two guns offer in terms of cost, capacity to weight ratio, versatility, aftermarket support, or usability (ease of use and maintenance). Nothing!

If you're looking for a gun that can to everything you "NEED" a gun to do, from a range toy to a dedicated all purpose fighting defense gun, these two are it. I hope this helps to understand why I made this comparison.

I'm not sure you're trading trigger for dependability. Just b/c the P320 doesn't have the resume the Glock does doesn't mean it isn't dependable, and if you prefer one gun to another, it doesn't make you a bad shooter. If you make excuses as to why you can't shoot well with one gun than other based on a superficial characteristic, then maybe so. Nothing wrong with liking one feature more than another, though. Not IMO.

@ Br3nd0. Everything is always compared to the Glock. It's like every AR is always compared to Colt. It has a lot to do with people wanting justification for their personal choices or just conversation.

Exactly. Glock is the standard for striker fire guns just like Honda is the standard for all import cars. It's not a slap to the others who are trying to compete with Glock. It's just a rational comparison b/c Glock was the first polymer striker fire gun that made it big, so that is why all the others get compared to it, instead of say the VP70, which was the first polymer striker fire gun.

I do something similar but change it seasonally. Compact large grip module in the winter and then when it heats up I switch to Subcompact medium for the summer months. Now that there is an X-grip to use the full size mag in the sub frame, I can use that for bedside duty and then switch out to flush mag for carry. Minimal fuss but it gives me a summer gun and a winter gun and when I use it for HD, a 17 round mag.

I love my glocks and I have zero interest in the 320. I don't have any interest in the 4th generation glock. Also for me I think glocks look awesome and I think the 320 is ugly. But I'm just weird what I think looks good!!!

Not ranting at all frommthe OP's thread but why isnt the M&P ever mentioned. It came out before the VP9. The PPQ. The 320. It has been adopted by tons of PDs across America. The M&P is really written off due to the trigger????? Which i find it is as almost equal to Gen4 Glock. Because if the after market argument is brought up. Its close to glocks. Its there. M&Ps can be pimped out as well. All three sizes
IMO it is because S&W does not have a direct competitor to the Glock 19 and I have heard that a lot. You can get the 17 round full size M&P or the 12 round compact but nothing in the 14-15 round range.

IMO if S&W comes out with a 15 round M&P 2.0 Compact that is the same size as the Glock 19 it will become their biggest seller and I would probably buy one.

I have a Gen 2 Glock 19 (that I bought new), Walther PPQ, and HK VP9. I really dig all three but for CCW out of the 3, I almost always CCW my Glock 19 when not CCW my beloved Walther PPS. To me the Glock 19 it still is the standard for a CCW compact pistol in regards to size, weight, capacity, reliability, durability, and performance. The Glock 19, at least mine, has a pretty decent trigger and certainly good enough for the task at hand. I also find that while the grip is not as comfortable as my PPQ and VP9 it is good enough.

I have tried the P320 Compact and really like it but have not purchased one so far because I am very content with what I currently have with SF pistols though I probably will buy one sometime, maybe the P320 Compact with safety, just because it is a terrific pistol and I am a big SIG fan but I really have to laugh and any comments or suggestions (not in this thread) that the Glock 19 is outdated, obsolete, or inferior to more modern options.

I feel the same way...both, I am a huge Sig fan, and I laugh anytime I hear someone say Glock is outdated or inferior. My thing is that if these newer, better, guns don't do anything more than what a pistol is supposed to do better, then how is it actually "better"? I can't do anything more with a VP9 or P320 than I can with a G19. Doesn't mean I can do what I do with a G19 any better than what I can with the others, but personally, one of the reasons I have settled on being content with the G19, even over other models, is b/c it fits my hands perfectly. Even before I modified the gun, the G19 fit my hands as well, if not better, than a lot of the others fantastic guns I've carried over the years.

The gun is slimmer, lighter and sleeker than almost every other gun out there in its size class, and has an extremely natural point of aim. It's just very instinctive for me, not to mention I can get them for less than I can get all the other guns, so that plays a HUGE factor in it as well. Also, picking a Glock in no way means that I think any of the other guns are in any way inferior, yet there is never any shortage of someone taking exception to the fact that I advocate Glocks as if it is a personal insult, especially when I point out how what they think about Glocks is either unfounded or simple bias. I love a lot of different guns from the vaunted 1911 to the Walther PPK, but the one that makes the most sense for me, and countless other millions across the globe, to carry daily and press into service as my GP gun is the Glock 19. Now, if I had plenty of money then rest assured I would have several other guns, to include a P320C, but chances are better than average that I'd still be carrying a G19 daily.

I spent a lot of time and money trying to stay away from Glock. I never understood how people could like such a thing, until I finally bought my first. I actually prefer my G17gen4 but the G19 is a lot handier and makes more sense as an EDC. There's good reason the G19 is the most popular handgun in the world and until you spend some time with one you won't get it.

Agreed, and I did the same thing. I too preferred the G17 to the 19, until I got the fact that the 19 actually fits my smaller/medium hands better. And, when you consider the fact that the 19 can do everything the 17 can do, it just makes more sense as an EDC gun.

For those who hate the Glock trigger, install a Ghost connector for around $25.00 and you'll find it's now great.

I discovered this accidentally with Mrs. Flash's G42 and liked it so much I did it for all her other Glocks plus my one and only Glock, a G17.

A Glock has no soul.

But I do own this G19 and and after a few mods I like it.



I do not have a P320. And at this stage, I can't see it unseating the Glock as my plastic tool of choice.

I also feel this way. Of course, switching back and forth between Glock and Sig (grip angle wise) has never bothered me either.

Maybe I'm just not sensitive enough to notice.
