Tyler in NC sends in today’s Q&A podcast asking about how to decide between two guns.
Tyler is looking for a new blaster to use as a competition pistol and some nightstand duty, etc. He’s shot Glock 17’s in the past and they shoot well for him, but he also likes the Sig P320, but he can’t decide which one to buy.
I think if you weigh out all of the pro’s and con’s between these two pistols, you’ll probably find that the Sig P320 will end up costing a bit more, since you’ll probably end up buying 3-4 magazines for either gun, and the Sig P320 magazines cost about twice as much as Glock magazines do.
I think that extra (maybe?) $200 in Sig parts isn’t all that important in the long term. If you like the Sig P320 more than the Glock, then that’s the gun you should get. I think “I like it” is pretty important when it comes to having a gun that you’re going to shoot competitively.
I had a similar situation when I ditched my S&W M&P Pro 9mm for a Glock 34. I can’t really quantify to you that the Glock 34 is better than the M&P, but I like it better, so I made the switch, and I’ve improved as a shooter since doing do.
I think based on Tyler’s voicemail that he likes the Sig P320 more than the Glock.
If you’d like to send in a question for the Q&A podcast, I’d like to find an answer for it. Here’s how to send it in.
