    You cant go wrong with either one.

    Both are excellent handguns for concealed carry...or open carry for that matter.

    The 229 holds more.

    IMO they are overpriced. But If I had the money I would get the 239 as i think it is a little easier to conceal.

    But i money is tight, look into the sig 250 for around 200-300$'s less

    I'd look at the 250 as well. I really like my 239. It's easy enough to conceal, but there are guns out there with higher capacity, just as thin, and a bit lighter.

    I love my 239. I was recently thinking about getting rid of it but then realized how stupid I was. You cant go wrong with either of the two. Although the 229 holds more it is wider.

    Depends on main application...

    I have the P239 and the P229, and both are excellent. For everything but carry I like the P229, one of the best semiautos I have ever shot. But for carry the P239 is a better size and more concealable - it weighs 5 ounces less and is thinner in the slide and shorter in the grip.

    I agree with Pogo2, great carry gun. I have a P226 and the 239. I can carry the 226 IWB without issue, however, I EDC the 239.

    pogo2, how are the aluminum grips, do they add any thickness to the grip or remain thin like the factory grips?

    P239

    Mine's a 9mm DAK with XS Big Dots.

    The P229 is a great gun as well, but it's a little bigger, heavier and most importantly, thicker than the P239.

    Love my 239, I added a hogue grip to her and that made it the best gun I have ever shot. I would go with the 40 insted of the 9mm but thats just me.

    I really like my P239. It's my EDC.
