    I own a P239 9mm and absolutely love it. When I carry it, Galco Summer Comfort IWB, I literally forget I have it on. And it is a great shooter. Sounds like a fair price!

    Don't own one but have several other Sig's and I think you will find it to be to your liking.

    Good choice

    I have a P239 in 9mm and have carried it. It is an excellent gun that is reliable, accurate and easily concealed. The small grip area makes it especially good for avoiding printing on your cover garment.

    If ammo capacity is a big deal for you, the 8+1 capacity of the P239 seems small compared to a Glock 19 of similar size, which carries 15+1 rounds. That is the only major objection to the Sig that I can think of.

    Very nice handgun and with Sig quality, ya can't go wrong. I don't own one now, but have in the past and regret ever parting with mine. They are pricey, but for the quality and reliability, it's fair IMO.

    Thats a great price for the SAS model. Mine is a 40 cal and when I got it I started shooting it, didnt clean it. 500 rounds later and it was perfect with whatever ammo I put thru it. I finally cleaned it after the 500 rounds, just because it worried me! Im betting it would have gone another 500 rounds or more trouble free if I had not cleaned it.
    The only bad for me is that it is a bit heavy to carry. (Scandium J frame has spoiled me)

    I've tried the 239 a bunch of times but always found that it doesn't fit my hand. (My hands are larger and perfectly fit a regular or hi-cap 1911, or Glock 19.)

    My wife has a P239 and loves it. It is very accurate and shoots very naturally.

    I am jealous and want one now too!

    Great finish, small enough to conceal while still a decent grip, low recoil in 9mm, nice trigger (not the best but definitely not the worst), never jammed or had any problems with mine. I would recommend it.

    My primary carry gun is a P239 in 9mm. It has had approximately 5000 rounds through it without a single failure. When carried in a Milt Sparks VMII holster I hardly know it's there.

    Gee. That looks like my gun.

    I ordered the Nil grips from MacTec and very glad I did.
