Glock 21 or Sig Arms 45ACP

So I've been up to the gun store a couple time over the last month trying to make a decision on a gun, I've held both guns a couple of times, and both feel great in my hand. The Sig has a little more weight than the Glock, and the glock is more blocky than the sig, which has me wondering how well it will conceal, I mean right now in the winter I have my coat, but during the summer time, that thing aint gonna hide real easy under my shirt. So I was wondering what your thoughts are and opinions on which gun it the best for conceal carry.
Thanks.

Can't go wrong with the Glock. I use the same model for my CHL in Texas.

While I am not a big fan of either (nothing wrong w/them-just don't care for them) I would go with the Sig seeing it is less bulky plus heavier weight helps to come back on target quicker when fired.

I've owned both brands and they are both top notch pistols. For me the Sig feels better in my hands and that's why I personally like it better. You won't go wrong with either. Just decide which one you like the feel of better both holding/shooting and carrying and buy it. Both will make great guns so it's all about personal preference.

Sig if you're looking at a metal framed model. If you're looking at one of the polymer pistols, my vote would go to the Glock 21 SF. I'm not really a Glock fan, but they have been doing plastic guns longer, and there is a lot of aftermarket support for them.

I bought my 21 when they first came out and wish I'd have gone with the 40cal . I'm a good size 5'10 person but the 21 in my hand feels bulky to me but I added the grip to her and she feels great now.
But for the price of ammo from 45 to 40 is a big difference in price and you will be able to shoot it more often lol.
I would have sold it yrs ago but my dad taught me to never sell my guns or hawk them for anything
I have to admit yrs ago I did leave my G21 on my tire at the deer lease and when I left ran it over and to this day looks great no scratches or problems firing it ..
