    hey all im thinking of maybe purchasing a new side arm, other then my glock, i like my glock but would like to purchase another so i can interchange my wep occasionally when going to the range, i am considering 3 others , i like striker systems over hammers, so at this time im considering

    S&W sigma, 40. cal
    Walther p99 40.cal
    Sprigfeild xd 40. cal

    i currently have a 9mm glock 17...

    So which of these would you suggest over the others... i know i should practice first but am wondering of your opinions...
    Not sure if this has been touched on, but the Sigma has been recalled by Smith & Wesson many, many times. I wouldn't trust it. I own a Glock 23.

    Personal preferences....

    ...I like anything from Sig Sauer. I've carried the 226 and 220. H&K makes a fine pistol--the USP. .40 cal or .45 ACP. I avoid the 9mm.... I've carried these and several S&W's. I like S&W revolvers (what I carried when I first entered law enforcement) better than their pistols. I've carried the Beretta as a police officer and in combat. Not my fave. But, will do the job in a pinch. I've carried several Glocks and am not a huge fan....

    My last duty weapon prior to a recent change was Kimber. I had the TLE II. A rather nice 1911 style .45 ACP! I respect Springfield Armory. I carried a parkerized M1A1 as a duty rifle and was curious to see what their pistols would do. I currently carry the Springfield Armory XD45. It's accurate and reasonably priced. This would be a good choice for a duty weapon, in my view. --K.

    Yes I have. The first time I went to the range, I had jamming issues and stove piping occur. I just had to work through them. After about the 300th round I sent down range, I no more issues. I have never touched let alone fire a SP2340 though.

    Be safe,

    I like the way the 2340 felt in my hand, but my 229 has a lighter recoil than the 2340. Think i'll test out the 2009. I want a full size gun for uniform work.

    I'm not impressed with the Storm. Part of the whole Storm concept is the 9mm carbine system. Why do I need a rifle to throw the same 9mm rounds my pistol carries? I'd be afraid to see what the ballistics of firing HydraShok through a 16 inch rifle would be.

    For Beretta, I like the 92 and 96 series. Not the new 2007 "remake" of the 92 and 96 series, but the old fashioned 92.
    There are certain advantages to using one type of ammo, but anyway the Storm comes in 9-mm, 40 and 45 ACP calibers.

    I bought a pair of S&W M&P 9mm pistols. One full size and on compact, with night sights. I like them a lot. I did have a problem with the compact dropping the mag when it was fired. I sent the gun back to S&W and they fixed it free. No problems since then.
    After I shoot a thousand more rounds, I might retire the old Model 28 .357. But it will be hard to put away the gun that has been a faithful companion for the last 25 years.

    [QUOTE=Charger;39887]I've heard nothing but good things about the new M&P series from S&W... A LOT of PDs are switching to them... Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to hold/try one myself yet, but they sure are pretty!

    Hey, not sure where you live (I know you said you worked off 87), but I am trying to get some people together to go up to the range near Pace. I'm not a big fan of it, but it's the closest one to us Pcola people. PM me sometime.
    Have sent PM.

    I have a Sigma .40 as a backup, but it was my 1st service gun. I must have sent 1600 to 2000 rounds through it without as much as a single stovepipe. in fact I believe the M&P uses many of the Sigma's inner workings- or the other way around...

    I almost purchased the Walther, but the Beretta felt more comfortable and balanced. One area of concern I had with the Walther is the magazine release. I prefer the button type and the W I saw had a lever type contraption. Does this magazine release lever give you any troubles with gloves on? or wet? Or heck anytime? Is it ackward to re learn to slide down as opposed to push in?
    Actually I've found the lever on my Walther to be EASIER to use when wearing gloves. With the button style, the gloves tend to limit my finger's ability to push inward on it. With the lever, It's just a downward "sweep" with the finger to release the mag. As for being wet, I've never had a problem. The lever is grooved for traction.. (Sounds funny... lol)


    I'm also curious about the new PPS that Walther just released in July. It's supposed to be a replacement for the PPK, but built with the same standards & style of the P99. If I can find one to try out, I may have found my new BUG.
