Sig 229 vs. XDM 40
I'm looking for my first handgun and have narrowed it down to these two I believe. I haven't done a ton of research, but from what I have read, these two would be a good fit for me. I'm going to get my CHL, but don't know if I'll conceal carry it very often. This will be more of a home/truck defense handgun.
I was set on the XDM, but my dad has the Sig so I shot that today and pretty much fell in love with it. It fits my hand well, it feels very solid, and I like the decocker. I haven't shot the XDM yet, but hopefully will soon. The Sig is a couple hundred dollars more, but from what I've read, it's worth it. I know ya'll will tell me to shoot the XDM before I make a decision, and I will, but I was just wanting to hear pros and cons of either firearm.
