I've owned both.  I prefer the HK, but the Sig probably get the nod of the crowd.


Spanky is speaking the truth however.   Look at the pros and they are shooting 1911s of Glocks.

I no longer own the HK or Sig.  I now own 1911s and Glocks.   


I prefer the 1911s due to the crisp trigger and feel.  Additionally, I shoot them the best.   However, the Glocks are growing on me (sorta like a tupperware wart).   My Glock 19 stays in the house with a rail light...perfect.

Gotta stop there I've typed Glock too many times and I'm getting queasy

   As I have stated before, I love my Glock.  It is simplicity, no messing with a safety, just pull, point, and shoot.  Its simple to break down and put back together.  Its lightweight, and just plain cool.  So, that is why I would reccommend the Glock.

Easy to maintain.
Easy to get into action and shoot.
Reliable.
One trigger pull to learn

I own an HK USP. 40. Although I plan to keep it, here are the assessments:
1. Reliable, but fails to feed on Blazer type ammunition.
2. Aesthetically pleasing.
3. Low recoil
4. Can be carried cocked and locked with the safety on. However, I don't carry it that way.
5. Enlarged trigger guard (good for gloved hands) and slide release.
6. Ease of magazine insertion.
7. Light.
8. Accurate.
9. Ambidextrous magazine release. However, it bites my shooting finger when pulling the trigger.
10. Can send it back to a certified armorer to modify it for different variants.
11. Durable magazines.
12. Easy to disassemble.
13. Assembled recoil spring and rod.
14. Railings for lasers, lights, etc.
15. Trigger for double action is a little too creepy and not good for those with small hands/fingers.

A good pistol in the 1911 format is difficult to beat for ergonomics and the trigger.  However a 1911 porperly carried in condition one requires intmate familiarity with the firearm and experince in handling it.  If you are not willing to put in significant range time and get proper training, I would suggest that you go to one of the other gunse mentioned.  I've fired Glocks and the XD.  I see little to suggest one over the other except for personal preferance.  Both are reasonably easy to shoot and with practice shoot well.  Both are reasonably accurate and extremely durable and reliable.  The XD does have a slight edge in price, at least where I live.  Glock also advises against shooting cast bullets.  Not a problem unless you reload though.

Both SIGs and H&K make excellent firearms as well.  But the tend to have more controls than the other two and depending on the model can be more expensive. 

Try to shoot them and choose the one that feels best and that you feel most comfortable shooting.

Good luck!
