P.S. correction to spelling: sig sauer
The Berettahasan external safety/decocker (pro or con, depending on how you look at it), while the Sig has a more naturally placed decocking lever, and no safety.
The Beretta's barrelis 1/2" longer (good for ballistics, bad for concealment... though neither isespecially noticable). Both guns are exceptionally accurate.
The Beretta hasa locking-block barrel capture for blowback delay (as opposed to the traditional Browning lockup used by the Sig). This is good for accuracy, but increases the necessary maintenance.
The Beretta trigger is not quite as smooth or light as the Sig's.
Both have a similar grip, in terms of size... and there are nice aftermarket grips available for both.
I've owned bothBerettas and Sigs... and I can shoot them both equally well. And, I would feel just as confident with either one. In many small ways, the Sig is a much higher quality gun... so if prices are similar, I would lean more towards the Sig.
Try them both, either one is a good bet... so let your preference be the determination.
