I have an XD 40 right now, but I am tempted to sell it and get the sig 2022 9mm. The 40 was just too expensive to shoot right now, and I figure that with the 9 I would be able to save some money and shoot more. This gun would be primarily for home protection.

If the sig 2022 in 9mm is half the gun that my 2022 in .40 s&w is you would be more than satisifyed with your decission. Keep us up to date on what you endup doing.
Good luck and God speed

XD is sweet, I looked into the Sig 2022 but did not like the feel in my hands. Supposedly a good gun but didn't feel good for me. Love my XD9 and XD45 but may part with them to get into a really nice 1911.

you should think about reloading.

i would keep the xd sc i have had one and they are reliable, accurate, and i was suprised at how easy they were to shoot and control.

I own both and really like both. Both have their strong points IMO.

I like the DA/SA of the SigPro, I like the De-cocker and the interchangeable back strap is probably the best out there... it changes the WHOLE entire feel of the gun. I also think it (for me) is one of the most accurate polymer pistols ive owned. Right there with the CZ 75 and Steyr. Its not just "combat accurate" its target accurate as well. bad side is aftermarket support is not there for this gun

The XD is a more popular gun, I think its very accurate but not as accurate as the Sig Pro... there are more flavors of the XD and they will conceal better if you get the same size or smaller version. Its thinner than the pro and it also feels that way. The trigger on the XD is a little nicer. There are a lot more goodies available for the XD.

Both good guns, both a little different.

My opinion?...Keep the XD and get the SigPro Thats always the best answer.

Like i said, I OWN both, I like both and i shoot BOTH a whole lot. 2 pro's in 9mm and 40 and 3xd's and 1 XDm.

Hope my opinion helps

You're not really going to save that much money. Now if it was a .45, then you could switch and see substantial savings.

Also, it's just me, but I have comfort with anything starting with a .4.

Around here .40 and .45 are pretty much the same price. At walmart 100 rounds of wwb 9mm is $21, .40 and .45 are around $31

From what I've seen, .40 is nearly the same price as 9mm. maybe 7-8 cents per round difference. If you're switching with the hope of huge savings, you're not going to find it. Reloading is also not going to do you much good unless you've already got a large supply of brass. Otherwise you have to buy ALL the components and load them up. Once they're loaded, where are you going to put them? Saving your ammo boxes will help you here, as the trays are still very useful. But again... you have none unless you've either bought ammo before or bought trays on your own. Reloading really only saves you a small amount. Don't do it thinking you're going to save hundreds and hundreds with 1000 reloaded rounds. It takes a lot of reloading to start to see savings in small amounts. Its more of a hobby than anything else.

Well, I don't know where you are, but here in PA .40 is usually 30-50% more expensive than 9mm. I've been checking out ammo prices online, and most of the sites I've checked .40 is at least 25% more than 9mm.

If I recall correctly, the XD is a SA only pistol. The Sig is a DA/SA pistol. Besides the cost of ammo, this is the biggest issue you need to consider. How long do you think it will take you to be "used to" the change in trigger style and weapon handling differences?

If its your carry piece, I'd think long and hard on this issue. It would be easier to learn hand loading with a long term view at cost savings.

Actually CDNN has it cheaper for $399.

Lately, the cost of .40 has been close enough to 9mm to make the difference negligible. I almost bought an XD40 in 4", but found an FN FNP 40 for a smokin' price and I went with it instead. But my next handgun will be an XD in 9mm...

XD. Don't care for Sigs.

SIG, don't care for XD's, just kidding, but I really don't like SUBcompact pistols. I own 5 SIGs, don't have the SIG PRO 2022, I have a P226, P229, P239, P232 and 556, I always wondered why SIG made the 2022. I probably never buy an XD, and all my SIGs run and shoot great so I vote for a SIG, the P229 if you can swing it, not the 2022, just my 2 cents.
