Default Glock vs others

Ok me and my boy always argue about which pistols are best: glocks vs sig. His defense is U.S. seals uses Sigs for use but glocks are used by many, around the world. So my questions are mainly for military members or know someone in the military... Which personal pistols do you prefer glocks or Sigs? And why... I know I'm gnNa get Glocks over all since this is a Glock forum....

I'm pretty adaptable, I can shoot just about anything within reason. I really like the Glock simplicity, one pin punch is all you need to totally take the weapon down to parts. Most guns you need more tools to get them detail stripped down that far. That's a big plus for Glock. Also there's so few parts in a Glock which I think adds to reliability, less parts, less parts to break or mess up.
I think I've finally found "The One" in my G30 that I just picked up. Small enough for CCW, 10+1 rounds(ok, I can only get the mag to seat with 9 rounds but still, that's 9+1 rounds) of 45acp in an accurate package that has IMHO very manageable recoil, yep, I'd take my Glock even though I do really like Sigs.

"A Sig is what you show your friends. A Glock is what you show the bad guys".

Reliable, rugged, simple and does what's its made to do...If I had to train a newbie in a few seconds to protect them self from brain thirsty zombies ... Then glock will be my go to gun.

Sigs are very reliable and yes some seals carry Sigs some glocks and some even carry 1911 style pistols of several different company's! Us special forces especially seals get whatever they want! My gun instructer trains with seals and rangers a lot and from what he has seen they carry a wide variety of side arms and battle rifles! The biggest difference to me between all the guns is how easy it is to clean the Glock some use a dishwasher I personally run my sink full of water drop it in leave for a few minutes get it out use a rag to wipe it down and put it back together put it in my mtac Minotaur and I'm done! O would never clean one of my 1911 pistols that way lol

Seals also use HK Mark23s and the new Mark24.

Lots of fine pistols made today. I love both Glocks and SIGS and own lots of both. But for extreme engineering, quality, and quality control, I give top billing to Heckler & Koch. Bill

Sigs are nice, but way overpriced and heavy.

I think the answer is pretty much "yes":
