The 239 is a great pistol.
This is a discussion on It's Here!!!! (Photos -Dial-Up warning) within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; New pistol showed up today. Wouldn't you know it, it's 36 degrees and raining so can't even take it out to the range. Oh well, ...
New pistol showed up today. Wouldn't you know it, it's 36 degrees and raining so can't even take it out to the range. Oh well, tomorrow's another day. Now I just have to chew my fingernails waiting for my UBG Canute holster to get here so I can start carrying it (hint, hint, Nate, hint, hint -- just kidding, it's only six days since I ordered the holster)

Man that is one good looking pistol
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Now that's just plum beautiful. There's gotta be an indoor range somewhere close by.
The most exhilarating thing in life is getting shot at with no results.

If I was going to buy a Sig...that would be the one. I like it. Congrats
That's a real nice pistola, hoss.
Being a dyed in the wool Colt man, I'm committing heresy when I say I'm liking SIGs more and more these days. Trouble is, there isn't a single SIG dealer anywhere around here, so I've never been able to handle one.
PS: It would be helpful to our members who are on a dial-up connection if you would re-size your pics before you post them.
Just a suggestion.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Hey Hoss, try out some Hornady 155 gr HPs (Tap, Personal Defense) and maybe your will shoot 1 inch groups like mine,
Congrats, beautiful gun!
Very nice....Sig makes fine firearms and your 239 should serve you well.

That is a very attractive pistol. Sig really seems to have gotten prettier in the recent past.

Actually, I had resized them down to 72 ppi with a level 7 (PhotoShop) jpeg compression. I had checked other photos on the site and tried to keep these around what appeared "usual" (each was less than 200KB). I've cut them down a little more to where each is around 150KB or less. If these are still too large, I can either put a warning in the thread title (actually, already went ahead and did this) or remove the photos and just post links to them. Since these are just links to the photos I maintain on my web site, I'd prefer not to reduce them anymore to retain some quality. While it's been a long time since I had dial-up, I do remember what it was like. Let me know if I should do something else to these.
great piece. It is on my "to buy" list but there are a couple before it that i have to buy first. Look forward to a range report.
