Personally, I like SIG's, but Glocks are good too. You really can't go wrong with either of them. The most important factor is what you shoot well and feels comfortable to you.Narrowed it down to 9 micro 9s based on width (and other dimensions), weight, factory trigger, mind numbing number of reviews.
Started testing but some will be hard to find to rent at ranges.
First test session was a SIG 365 and Springfield Armory Hellcat. First test was also first time firing anything this small or light. We both shoot Casulls and similar power revolvers and pistols and don't mind the recoil at all. But recoil is not just the power but also the weight of the gun and grip. Turns out the micro 9s have much less felt recoil than the larger much higher power guns we own.
Both the Sig and Hellcat were accurate enough. Susan was putting all rounds into one ragged hole standing at 15, but with very deliberate aim. No rapid fire. My groups were a little larger which could only be because I need new glasses But accuracy of the gun isn't very important for pure defense use which is not going to be much more than a few feet.
Unfortunately, the Hellcat had a much heavier trigger and did not signal the release as clearly as the SIG. And surprisingly the Hellcat slide release was so heavy Susan couldn't do it most tries, at least with just the thumb holding the gun.
Since this was at a combination range and store I have to assume they wouldn't be renting out substandard examples of the guns when trying to sell the same models new.
So, Sig stays in the competition, and we would be happy with. Hellcat is out.
Glock 43 variation and Shield Plus next.
May not be able to find some others for live fire but can at least feel trigger and grip at a gun store. I'm sure recoil won't matter and I doubt accuracy would matter at the ranges we anticipate. But dry firing a few times in a gun store won't say much about natural pointability for us.
A few others on the list, I might not even be able to find in gun stores due to shortages or dealers not stocking the brand.
