I EDC a P239 .40 daily, IWB and have found it much more comfortable than the XD sub-compact it replaced, I also found it to be thinner than advertised. I wanted the slightly longer barrel, and the single stack mags so I could just slide one in my pocket when I want. Capacity is less than the XD sub, but I carry a j-frame from time to time so round count wasn't my main motivation. As far as the 40 being snappy I can't say I have really noticed it that much, but when I shoot I usually have an auto in .40 and a .357 mag smith or two. I will say that I shoot my P226 better.
