Purchased 2nd Sig already

Well you may have seen my posts as a new member picking up my first Sig this past week, a CPO P226. Well, I already pulled the trigger on another Sig to use for CCW, a brand new P320 compact! Did I make a good decision? I thought about a Glock 43, but the Sig seemed like a nicer gun. And this will be my first brand new one too. I am a bit concerned about it being polymer, but the reviews seem to be good, and it's for a daily carry, and I already have an all metal one in the 226. Is this a record for succumbing to the Signess?

The Signess has only begun!! Let me assure you that the 320 will allow you to be much more accurate than the Glock 43...but it is much larger to carry.
Congrats!

Oh, is it not a good carry gun? I saw a video where a guy compared the compact to a glock 19, and it was about the same size, saying it was good for a medium carry gun. The glock 43 may be much smaller though.

The Glock 19 is probably one of the most carried guns around, and the 320 is about the same. I was just commenting about apples and oranges, there is a great difference in size for the 43 and 320C.... although this is whats in my belt today...

freediverdude, the "problem" with the 320 is its "versatility"! For those old enough to remember erector sets, with one of them you could "build" so many variations it would make your head spin.
The only problem I really see, is the transition between the DA/SA function of your P226, and the striker fired P320... as long as you train, and stick to the single platform for EDC you should be all right.
I'm not saying someone can't switch from one to the other effortlessly, the normal person would have difficulty. For SD/EDC, you need to be consistent, or the price could be too high...

Enjoy your new acquisition, and have fun!

Not a record.

My friend bought 3 new SIGs in one day, after getting a huge commission check. P232, P226 MK25, 1911 TTT.

Though the 320 compact is larger then the 43, The 320 is much more versatile and easier to shoot and shoot well. The 320 is good to go! Now that you have the 320 FCU
You can go to a subcompact 320 same trigger just a tad smaller. With an xchange kit.

I shipped my 43 up the road this week but went with a new HK for my CCW
My short list for sigs are he 225-A1, and the 320 with a compact frame and full size slide
(320c-9-FLS) Oh And a no rail 226-9

The P320 is an excellent choice. Having shot a friends 320 compact in 40s&w and owning a G43 I would say you made a good choice. The trigger is much nicer stock, and even with the upgrades I put in my G43 (specific for belly band workout carry) the trigger still feels a little nicer on the 320.

He liked his so much he picked up an 320 compact in 9mm. Which might end up being his wifes down the road.

The P226 and P320 are a good start, but you're going to need to get a BIG safe before long...

Thank you, that helps ease my worry about it being too big. I need to find a holster like that one.
