    New for me, SIG P239

    Well I traded off the Kahr CW40 I had, just back from repair. To buds I went and got this.( Excuse the pic, one day I will figure out this camera)



    It's the 2-tone with dak in 40 caliber. Eventually it will get new grips and different sights.
    Buds gave it to me for my Kahr and 300 bucks out the door. Or a total price of 575.

    Nice choice, the 239 is an often overlooked but a premium CCW piece.

    I'm jealous.

    I would love a 239, it will be my next gun I'm thinking. I have a 229 and 232 already and am amazed with their accuracy. I can't wait to get my 239.

    Congrats! You've made a good choice. If you want to go to 357 SIG later, it's just a barrel swap. Think you'll find you have a good shooter there!

    Thx all, I got tired of trying to find a ccw "budget" piece. The millenium pro worked, but it is what it is.. 6 inch accurate at 5-7 yards, and that was on a good day..had high hopes for the cw40 but it was a problem child. The m@p compact was great but the daughter claimed it, seeing as how shes is going into law enforcement. (Dad got the shaft on that one, shoulda never told her she could have any of the collection upon graduation) So when I saw this I couldnt pass it up. Like the dak trigger too, wasnt so sure when I was looking at it, but dry fire it a couple dozen times and it does grow on ya.
    Oh the mags are no problem and not expensive..I talked him into 2 extra ones (used ones) seeing as how I gave him the kahr with 3 extra mags for it. So I have a total of 4 mags in that price too.

    I have a 239 and it is a great firearm. I've actually pocket carried it comfortably. It has been 100% reliable also.

    Also have a new P239

    I was also intrigued by this pistol and bought one a few months ago in 9mm. I have been carrying it some of the time in a DeSantis speed scabbard holslter, which works very well. I keep mine loaded with the Federal HST 147 grain ammo, which does well in gelatin tests - 13.5 inch penetration and 0.77 inch expanded diameter. I have fired about 300 rounds through the gun at the range and it is quite accurate and reliable.
