Buying first sig
Looking to buy my first sig. The firearm will serve as home defense and range use. Deciding between the P320 and the SP2022. Advantages and Disadvantages? Do both firearms work well for people who have small hands? So please take it easy on the newbie.

Welcome from Florida. You can't go wrong with the Sig P320. Buy the compact model which is great for home defense. Then you can buy the Full size ex change kit in 9mm, 40s&w or .357Sig to use for target shooting at the range. I have the sc model and full size kit in 9mm.

Well you have da/sa vs striker fire. Do you have experience with the double action trigger? They are both fine choices but it's going to be what's more comfortable for you, not anyone else. And welcome from Chester County, pa!

I prefer the DA/SA for home defense, but having said that my 320rx may take the place of the SP2022 as my nightstand gun.

Have to agree with phlyers13, about your "Handle", and welcome to Sig Talk from the southwest corner of Indiana...
As far as your conundrum involving which model to choose, I believe that the 320 will provide the smallest grip diameter.
As brought up by others, which action type do you have the most experience, "striker fired", or "double action / single action".
If new to handguns, the striker fire system provides a consistent trigger pull, instead of a transition from the long double action pull for the first shot, to the short pulls for follow-up shots.
Both models use the standard M1913 accessory rail, for mounting lights or lasers.
As mentioned previously, it's your decision. Go handle each, and if there is range nearby with rentals, that you can try out, see which one works best for you, and then make your decision. If you polled the members here, you would find that most have made changes in their preferences over the course of their experience.

My two cents. This is only my opinion and only applies to me. I'm sure I'll get bushwhacked for saying it here in a Sig forum. But....
If you really want a Sig, I'd go with something more traditional. A P226, 228, 229, etc.
While there's nothing wrong with the plastic Sigs, I just don't get the feeling of quality or pride of ownership that comes with the classic models.
If you are specifically looking for something with a polymer frame, I'd investigate all of your options (Glock, HK, S&W, Walther, CZ, etc.) before making a decision.

The SP2022 has interchangeable grips as well.
I don't understand why, when someone asks about a specific gun or guns that people have to post what they think someone should buy. I'm sure they have narrowed down there choices to what interests them. This never fails to amaze me and it happens all the time!

Everyone has their own opinion as what what you should buy.. My recommendation is to go rent them both and you decide on which one is most comfortable for you...........
FYI. I own a SP2022 9mm and have put 950 rounds through it since the end of Jan and have not had 1 problem with it. and If you decide to go with the SP2022 there is a great deal for a sig threaded barrel. I just put 250 rounds through this new barrel today with fmj's and hp's with out 1 problem

I would strongly suggest renting both and giving them a go. Both are great guns and you will enjoy either but they are different from one another. Only you will know which is best for you. The 320 you rent will most likely have a medium grip. It can be had in a small as well as large size. The grips aren't readily available because of the guns popularity but I thought I would throw those options out for your consideration as well.
Welcome to SigTalk. You won't be sorry about a Sig purchase. They are great guns for the money. Greetings from the flat lands of Kansas.
