    Sig P239

    I want to know your opinions on the SIG P239. I currently have a P229 that I'd love to carry but it seems that it would be just to big for me. I'm considering the P239 because I really like Sig pistols, they just feel great on my hand. I know that it is probably a bit on the heavy side for a compact but I wanted to hear people's experience with it (or with your P229 too )

    I have a Sig DA/SA P239 in 9mm as my current CCW and it's outstanding. It is VERY accurate and very reliable. The weight doesn't bother me with a good holster.

    While I wouldn't mind shaving 5oz, the only thing I really would like better is if it was higher capacity.

    To that end I've ordered an HK P2000 SK in DA/SA 9mm and I look forward to see how they stack up. The P2000 SK is supposed to accept HK P30 full capacity (15rd) mags (I have two sitting on my desk).

    I think you are hard pressed to go wrong with either the P239 or the P2000 SK.

    Thanks for the info John! Funny thing is, I am considering the P2000sk too. Have you ever shot one? I haven't but I'd love to hear how it did.

    I'm afraid not. I haven't been able to find one locally (had to order it).

    I'm hoping mine will be in today and if so, there is a good chance I'll have shot one today! ;-) [ Edit: Alas, not until Monday. :-( ]

    Dean407 did a range report.

    Oh the wait. The wait.

    P229 and P239

    I have a P229 in .40 but not a P239. The P229 is one of my favorite guns for targets or home defense, but I prefer something lighter weight and a little thinner for concealed carry.

    The P239 is about the right size and weight for carry, and I like the thin profile of the gun compared to the P229. I have been tempted to buy one several times, but haven't done so yet. I would probably go with the .40 caliber version if I did buy one. I think the version with the stainless slide and black frame is very good looking:

    I have a 239 in 9mm and love it. Yea, it could lose a couple ounces, but it shoots really well - a real "tack-driver".

    I do have a 229 in .40 and 357, but because of being real busy at work I haven't had a chance to work with it much, so I can't really compare them yet.

    The P239 is a great carry pistol and just as accurate as the P229. I have both (a P229R DAK .40 and a P239 DAK 9mm). I like to conceal carry both (in Kydex IWB holsters), but the P239 does print just a tad less. As already mentioned, just wish the P239 had a higher carry capacity, but I'm fine with it. Your P229 needs a little brother to keep it company. Here a pic of my P229 and P239 together to give you a size comparison:

    I have a 239 in 40 DAO with CT grips, night sites, and love it. I have small hands and really like the single stack. ..

    I got DAO as my S&W 642 and my Kel-Tec 380 are both DAO.

    "57mm Anti-Tank Cannon"

    Tankdriver: how exactly do you carry that!

    I have a 229 and 239 in .40 and think you need them both.
