For the first time ever I am considering getting a Glock. I dont mean that in a bad way, they just never felt right in my hands, and I always thought they were as ugly as sin. But I always regarded them as accurate, reliable handguns. After handling a Glock 30 that belongs to a friend of mine Im seriously considering getting one. However to do this I really need to get rid of one of my other guns. It only makes sense that I would get rid of the 239 9mm. I like the 239 but it does sit in the safe most of the time (I love my 220) The G30 is slightly longer in length, shorter in height, and slightly wider. It only weighs a few ounces more loaded than the 239 does empty. It also holds 10+1 45ACP as opposed to the 8+1 9mm. But something still tells me to hold onto the Sig. Its well built, shoots great, and looks great! I will probably finalize my decision after I get a chance to shoot it, but otherwise Im torn...

I own both... As much as I love the .45, I wouldn't give up my 239 for the Glock. Not in the world I live in, anyway. Now in a true SHTF situation, the Glock would be the only choice due to caliber and capacity. For EDC, the Sig rules.

Sounds to me like you want the G30. Go for it...they're both only a thing.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
Trade a sig for a glock? Words fail me.
If you will get more use out of the Glock then do it. I have no use for safe queens. Sigs are prettier. Glocks are tougher.
hard to be tougher when half of you is plastic.... JUST KIDDING! keep the Sig, get the Glock - years from now you'll be kicking yourself for getting rid of it.

Get the Glock, keep the Sig if you can somehow manage both.

Both the Glock and Sig are fine pieces.....

There ARE ways to save $$...none quite as pleasant as SPENDING it, of course...especially on "toys".....but if you get creative, you can come up with ways to "squirrel" spare change that will allow you to keep from having to part with the Sig....and still get the Glock....
IMO the Sigs are top shelf pistols, but so are the Glocks. If it was me, I'd keep the Sig and save for the Glock. I know what cha mean about it sitting in the safe and doing nothing, but I like to build my inventory with new pistols and shy away from trading and swapping. You'll always come up short on the trade (price wise) and for me, years ago when I would trade around, I always found myself regretting my decission later down the road. YMMV
Good luck with your decision. Both are excellent defense pistols, and you can't go wrong with either one.
FWIW, I can't tell you how many times I've read a thread that included words to the effect:
"I don't know why I sold that gun, I've regretted it ever since"
Good luck on your decision, both are great guns.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
I'm pretty much in agreement with the others; if you can afford to keep the Sig, do so. Once it's gone, it tends to stay gone, and you're always wish you still had it (even as a Safe Queen).

Well, here's a different twist. The Glock 30 isn't "slightly" wider. It's a LOT wider. 1/8 inch is enormous on a carry gun. Don't consider the slide. That's not what makes a carry gun invisible. It's the grip. The Sig P239 has a microscopic grip, compared to the G30.
If you're considering a Glock. I'd recommend the 36. Grip is WAY slimmer and very comfortable to carry. I'd compare it to the P239, any day. I have both.
I think you wouldn't be too thrilled with the size of the 30 once you got it on your hip.
