I'd dump the Sig, but mainly because I've never liked them. Their ergo's suck for me.

I'd keep the G26. You already posted that you carry it 90% of the time, there's a reason for that. It's already working for you. You can almost go to the local Quiktrip and buy mags and accessories for it, it just makes sense.

Keep the one that is the most reliable and you shoot the best. If you love the Sig and it has been the most reliable and shoots the best, then keep it. If the Glock is the most reliable and it shoots the best, keep it. If they both are the same as far as reliability goes and you shoot them both fairly well , keep the Sig since you "Love" it. You never sell a gun you love; though, reliability trumps "Love" every time.

Also, ask yourself this. If the stuff was to hit the fan tomorrow, and you could only take one gun with you, which one would it be? That should give you the answer to the one you should keep.

Another thing I meant to add was this. If you have a gun friendly friend, sell the one of the guns to them for a discounted price on the terms that once you are on your feet again financially, you can buy the gun back at the same price.

I much prefer sigs to glocks but the 26 is just all around better suited to EDC, the sig, being a service sized pistol would be difficult to adapt to that duty.

That's a hard one. I have both also (well the Sig is a 239 9mm) and they are both box stock.( I do have a couple G- 19 and G-17 mags for the 26) I would hate to let either go as I know you do. But from your standpoint and carry the G-26 90% of the time I guess I would let the Sig go. Most of the time I am carrying my G-33 even though it's not a real common round I would hate to see it go to. But trust me if there is any way to keep both, I mean anyway at all try to keep them both. Anyway you look at it you are going to regret it, and who knows whats going to happen down the road, hell we might not be able to buy a pistol at all. I know that's a long shot but hey........... "I am just say'n.

Keep the 26. Agree with tomrkba......except that I'd use the Xgrip brand sleeve on the G19 mag. I really like the Xgrip deal. No pinch and it doesn't move. Gives a "boring" Glock a different/nice grip.

Sell the Sig

Love the Sig but if you need money bad enough, get all you can and that means selling the more valuable piece. I think you will wish you hadn't though so make sure selling either one of these fine handguns is a last resort.

Who do you plan to sell them to for those prices ?

Live to fight another day

I agree that keeping the G26 makes the most sense. It's versatile, it's more carry-able, and you're accustomed to carrying it.

But another day will soon come when you are in a better financial position and you can buy again. At that point, you can buy another SIG or you can buy what suits you at that time.

Keep the one you like the best. Pretty hard for me to be attached to either of these except as a tool.
