    A friend of mine's daughter carries one and she really likes it so far. I don't know if she has 1000 rounds through it yet but she shoots it well. She carries it in a Galco snap on holster or in her purse.

    Coworker has one in 40S&W. Works well for him. I've considered on several occasions getting one for CC. Feels great, shoots like a SIG should, and to top it off, it's beautiful.
    Knowing is half the battle.

    I have the P239 in 40 cal (DA/SA), and love it. Although I carry a snub daily (in the field), and a CW9 quite a bit for casual time, the P239 is still one of my absolute favorites.

    I daily carry a 239/9mm. Small enough, very accurate and highly reliable! Buy one, shoot it and you will never look back, trust me!

    I was looking at picking one up but for the size and weight the capacity is lacking (8 rounds of 9mm). You would be better off with a Kahr PM9 or a Glock 26, 27, or 33. . The Kahr is cheaper, smaller, less weight, and close to the same capacity (6 or 7+1 depending on the magazine).
    The Glock surprisingly is smaller in every dimension/weight and offers higher capacity in all versions ( 9+1 in .40s&w/357sig, 10+1 in 9mm) and with a +1 Pearce extension that increases to 10+1 in .40s&w/357sig, and 12+1 in 9mm.
    Did I mention both guns are considerably cheaper?!?

    9mm Sig P239

    I frequently carry the one below plus a spare magazine in my weak side pocket. The magazines are small and easy to carry. The gun is slender and conceals well, is accurate, and has never failed to function. It weighs 27.5 ounces empty, which seems the perfect weight to me. I own a Glock 19 with a 15 round magazine, but rarely carry it because the P239 is just more pleasing to me.

    239 9MM. It's one of my favorite shooters, and what I carry when I can!

    This. I took a look at one at the gun store, and it is almost exactly the same size as a Glock 19. The Glock costs less, and carries 16 rounds. Sig makes a nice pistol, but IMHO there are better choices for carry.

    Sig 239 6.6 x 5.1 x 1.2, 29.5 oz w mag (no ammo)

    G19 6.9 x 5 x 1.2, 30oz loaded w ammo

    A Glock 26 is even smaller and lighter, costs less, and still carries more ammo.

    Those are excellent little guns...had the pleasure of shooting many of them. I bought a P228 which I carry occasionally only because my EDC is a G23. I was considering a P239 when I stumbled on to the P228 at a great deal.

    Since I first started carrying I REALLY wanted to love the P239. Mainly because I love that sig super sweet trigger. However the specs you posted are exactly the reason why I can't love the p239 :( It's wider then a 19/26 as well.

    I have the P239 SAS (Gen 1) in 9mm, and really, really like it. It is smooth, very accurate, the DAK trigger is a great system (if it does take a little while to get used to), and it's just an extremely handsome gun. That said, I'll echo what others have said - it's heave and large for the capacity (though the weight helps keep the recoil to nearly non-existent), and there are other more "efficient" platforms.

    Still, the P239 is a gorgeous, reliable, very functional handgun. If you are comfortable with the size and weight relative to the capacity, you won't find a better pistol.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I have the 239 in 9mm and feel this is, hands down, the best handgun I've ever owned. This is my first Sig, but it certainly will not be my last!

    What everyone has said about the size, weight and capacity is true, but you really have to shoot one to see what all the hoopla is about IMHO.
