I am a new pistol owner, but own many long rifles and shotguns, and have a (maybe stupid) question. I bought a Springfield XD40, 4" barrel .40 cal, for CCW and home defense and got the OK from the wife to buy a Sig Sauer P229 as well. I know the Sig is used by Secret Service and Spec. Ops. and the like and I want to know whether anyone has more experience in these two different pistols for CCW. Would I be better off using the XD or the Sig for CCW and what are the pros and cons to each?
