My buddy used the same reason; sigs are used by the seals. Lol

Hey Bunk! Thanks for your service Sir!! I was in from 77-83. Plane Captain( Line Puke) Roosie Roads, Vc-8 TA-4j #13 We have a Military and Leo forum here if you PM HAVASU or TXSHOOTER they will let you in!! Thanks again!!Can one go wrong with either? I have two Glocks and two Sigs. All outstanding and I think it all depends on the needs of the user and what they prefer. I'm a Navy pilot and though I retire soon, if I were to go into harm's way....and granted, if pilots are using their hand guns, the you know what has hit the fan...I would carry a G19, hands down. For me, the reason is the G19 is light, easy to carry and conceal in gear. Same reason I use my G19 for my edc, it's light, plenty of rounds, easy to conceal. I love my Sig's but they are a bit heavy, large, not so easy to conceal...at least my full sized 226 Navy and 2022.
Best in terms of what criteria?garciach1 said: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....

Government agencies buy through the lowest bidder. Hence, the Beretta M9. SpecWar/SpecOps buy based upon needs.
By the way, They are SEALs (Sea, Air, and Land) or S.E.A.L.s "seals" are what get clubbed for their fur. SEALs DO the clubbing (or beating, shooting, or whatever means that they accomplish their objective).
I have Glocks, H&Ks, a Beretta 92FS, and Sig Sauers.
For military or law enforcement, a rail is important for a light. GLOCK, SIG, HK
Durability in harsh environments is essential for military. GLOCK, HK
Accuracy and reliability are equal.
Ease of use is critical. Glock. No safety, decocker. Simple. Fewer parts.
Some folks need safety (double action, double action only): Sig, HK, Beretta
Weight is important and they all fit that bill.
Maintenance: Glock over HK over Sig for simplicity.
Cost: Glock wins by a landslide over Sig and H&K
Grip Size for all sizes of users: well that's another topic altogether.
