    I have carried a 239 in 9mm for the past 1.5 years. I really like the way it shoots and carries. My fingers are short so it fits in my hand better than the 229 I'd like to buy next. I wish I would have bought the 239 in .40 so I could then buy a 9mm barrel and have both.

    I'd say buy which ever gun feels the best in your hand. They will both pretty much conceal the same.

    If your hands are a little small for the "classic" Sigs, try the E2 version, they have grips that are smaller front to back.

    You can also go for a single stack model like a 225 (9mm) or a 220 Carry or Compact (.45).

    True, but for those who want double stack guns, the E2 is a terriffic option.

    Before you spend a lot of time on the trigger types, you might want to handle these first. The P229 is double stack (as are the vast majority) while the P239 is single stack. The feel relative to your hand could be quite different. I have a small hand and prefer the P239.

    If you're willing to look a bit older I just today picked up a sig p6. It's my first sig and I am very happy with it. JG sales has them available for $330, so I feel they are a great deal.

    Try to shoot, or at least dry-fire, a P239 before buying! The combination of a narrow grip and long double-action stroke, that ends amazing far back, does not suit many folks. I do not have long fingers, yet I much prefer the P229/P226-sized pistols. I can conceal a P229 quite well enough on my slim frame.

    I cannot address the SRT, as that is a system for DA/SA SIGs, and my preferred trigger system is the DAK, a form of double-action-only. I can shoot single-action just fine, and in the past carried DA/SA pistols, managing the DA-to-SA transition, but prefer just one trigger pull. (I do have a couple of pre-SRT DA/SA P229 pistols, with which I occasionally practice DA-to-SA, so the skill does not totally perish.)

    A Sig is definitely on my short list. But the only model I'm interested in is the 220 Carry SAO. It's about as close to a 1911 as you can get in a "modern" pistol (SA is important to me, and 45ACP is my defensive round of choice).

    P229 sas

    I just got a P229 SAS.
    I did not consider any of the DAK guns, just my preference.
    My first Sig, I love it.
