Not an LE

I'm not an LE, never have been, never will.

If I was or had been an LE, I might know enough to make an informed choice. Maybe.

The last LE I talked with was carrying a 226 in .40, and he noted that the local city LEs had switched from 9mm 226s to 45acp 220s.

So, even though I'm not an LE, I am a Leo, and I voted for Sigs.

choice

I know this will probably get someones goat, but I've carried the 1911 for so many years, I couldn't think of carrying anything else. I believe that, in an emergency situation, complete and total familiarization with the weapon is a must. Muscle memory HAS to take over, freeing your mind to concentrate on the threat. Just my $.02.

SIG, based on the fact that the Navy put them to the test for SEAL use and I like the round count available in each mag. I would prefer the 357 Sig because it feeds so well.

I wouldn't carry a .40 Short and Weak....

If I was to carry a .40 caliber bullet weapon, it would be a Glock 20 in 10mm or a Colt Delta M1911 in 10mm.

But, If I really had a choice, I would go with a Colt M1911 in .45 ACP. It puts down whatever it hits.
