It's just like you're apparently a Glock guy, there are Sig guys. Neither is wrong. Everybody prefers something different. This is why I don't even get involved in threads when a new shooter joins and asks what brand to get any more; there's going to be votes for every brand of gun.
I used to carry a XD9SC and now have a P229 SAS G2 that I don't find that much heavier or bulky than the XD, especially since I carry it in a pretty good set-up, IMO. I also much prefer the SRT the Sig has over the XD's trigger. I'd love to get a 226 in the future, but it would not be for CC though. Most likely just for the range and HD.
