Sig 938, pricey, but is a great shooter, right out of the box.

At first glance they look indentical the smith and the 43 that is. The glock 43 is single stack mag right?

This too other than cosmetics looks remarkably similar to the Kimber, same basic frame. Even though Sig is high the Kimber is probably $200 more

And you wont find a more reliable weapon for shooting. Simple yet incredibly reliable to always do what you make it do. I love revolvers.

I learned how to shoot handguns with Grandpa with a .38 snub nose.

I'm pretty impartial to that little fella, even though my everyday handgun is a glock 19 knockoff.

Completely different guns. Same class. Both single stack. I'm almost exclusively a Glock shooter, the Shield is the better of the two.

CZ makes some awesome guns too. If I still cared enough to buy new guns, I'd get a few CZs.

I've seen revolvers eat s**t before. I happened to have a 340SC in my bag that I loaned to someone to finish out a class when his .38 crapped out. Aside from being able to chamber rounds that won't fit in the handle of a semi-auto (like bear country rounds) I can't think of a single reason to ever carry one over a modern, striker fired handgun.

If you want a 340SC, I can think of a guy who has one who would rather have an HKC55

CEO from Kimber is now the CEO at Sig. You couldn't give me a product from either company.

Plus the bigger the round the bigger the wheel. I like wheel guns for the heft when target shooting but for CC the slimmer and lighter the better

Damn, I just sold it to Warren otherwise I might take you up on it. I've heard bad things about that 340sc though. Do you like it?

For everyday use, it's tough to beat a glock. I have a S&W knockoff which basically just has a heavier trigger, which I like to have. My fingers are really fat and calloused so for me to be accurate I have to know I'm pulling the trigger. Light trigger I seem to pull early.

I'm sure a lot of it is what I'm used to, but I really dont like a light trigger.

I hate tiny guns in general. I normally carry a Glock 19. But go get hands on a Shield 2.0. I think you'll like it. It carries small but feels big enough to control.

Long and heavy doesnt bother me. It's not a competition gun and I'll never be a competition shooter. I guess if I had my druthers a medium distance trigger with a heavy pull is what I'm most comfortable with.

I don't like it because it's a revolver. Otherwise it weighs like 10 or 11 oz and can handle .357 loads.
