I have a Witness P which is the same design as the Baby Eagle and a TZ99 which is the same design as the Sig, and love both guns, however I chose the Sig because of the sights that are offered. If the sights on the Baby eagle are the same as my Witness, they are sort of hard to get used to, but the Heine sights that are standard on the Sig are a piece of cake. Heck, I would even choose both of these over a 1911 but only because I like the DA/SA action. Witness' which are the CZ75 design like the Baby Eagle, are giving 1911's a hard time in European IPSC matches.
    Anyone who starts a sentence with naming a manufacturer incorrectly in a failed attempt at humor loses credibility with me.

    Block, Gluck etc all fall into this category.

    Get the Glock. Lighter, faster trigger, easier to learn system, and proven reliable. Spend more time on ammo and training.

    No offense to team polymer, but I tried several poly guns and they just don't do it for me. I like steel and stainless steel even more. That's why I went with a 45 acp Sig P220 elite stainless. It has the short reset trigger night sights and the rail. I will get the identical gun in a 226 9mm.

    Different strokes....I like the feel and heft of the all steel , but, for carrying all day....plastic. But to answer the OP, for home defense and not CCW, Sig.

    It basically comes down to what you feel most comfortable firing accurately. If the weight, feel, and natural point of aim feel comfortable, then go with the one that is best for you... Let the gun pick you so to speak. I carry a P245, and keep my P226, and P229 as home defense weapons usually.

    Glock, Baby Eagle or Sig.. wow.. That's quite a spread. All three world-class weapons.

    For carry.. if weight and size are a factor, the spec's alone are helpful.

    For something out of the ordinary but super well-built and accurate and just plain cool.. I really like the Baby Desert Eagle.. About as good a CZ action as I've seen.. Check out the write-up at gunblast.com Dang sexy pistol too with the desert-eagle styling on the front with the inverted CZ slide design.

    I own a 226.. LOVE it.. but yes, high bore axis muzzle flip.. Glock definitely has the advantage for quick shooting, and possibly the IMI as well.. But the Sig's are super well-built metal frames.. Just to me feels like "more gun", like the eagle.. But if you dig shooting a glock.. Not a bad choice either.

    coin toss. Get one of each!! hehehe

    PS: I bought a CPO Sig (certified pre-owned)... Good way to get into a very good condition Sig that's affordable.

    I have the Browning model of that gun(Pro-40). I have been totally impressed with how it works. It's really accurate and carries well.

    Talking

    I voted Glock for this reason. It is the cheapest.
    All three you mentioned are good and all will do the job.
    If you have to use it the coppers are gonna get it for a long time.
    So let em have the Glock.
    No disrespect for Police Officers, but they do like that name.

    So far my opinions tend to agree with the polls that I have participated in. I chose the Sig, but also because the Glock's polygonal barrels have a problem with lead bullets. I like having the option to shoot any bullets that I may have at the time.

    The Baby Eagle is also made with polygonal rifling except for a short period (2006 i think) when they went to traditional grooves

    I voted for the Sig here. I hate glock so Sig was the obvious choice. The baby eagle does not hold as many rounds, nor do i think it is as reliable as the Sig. really this is just a preference poll, as usual. So my official advice to you would be to buy the one that YOU like best. You're the one who is going to be stuck with it...

    Sig is still way out front still eh? I guess people are seeing that bore axis stuff is about as useful a term as stopping power

    Sig is one of the best around. That would be my choice, hands down.

    Question so, what did you buy?

    Like MauiWowie22 says, "Did you decide???"
    its been a year, I hope you got the Sig.

    HHelp me decide Sig P226 or Glock 22 or Baby Desert Eagle

    I voted Sig P226, but I'd like to add one to the list. I bought a SP2022 2 months ago, and it's now my favorite Sig, not to mention my favorite handgun ever. Plus, it's more affordable than the others.
