    I carry mine in a Milt Sparks VersaMax II. It is so comfortable that it is easy to forget that I'm carrying.

    good holster for a p239

    You're going to get a ton of good suggestions, but I'd say you should probably determine if you're going to go the kydex route, or the leather route. If you want kydex, you'll likely go with CTAC, Blade-Tech, Tucker, or a couple of other reputable dealers. If you want all leather, though, you have more choices, but it will cost you, and you'll likely be waiting for it. In my opinion, some things in life are on the list as "worth it", though, and good gun leather (holster AND belt) is on that list. For leather dealers I would start with K&D, Brommeland, Milt Sparks, or UBG (Ugly Bald Guy).

    I have a Blade-Tech UCH (for my G19) and have recently ordered a Dakota Defender from K&D (hi ya, Kevin).

    Please note that this is only meant to get you started. There are hundreds of dealers for both kydex and leather (and even some hybrids), but the ones I've mentioned all have good reputations and what they sell, to me, is worth the money and wait.

    Good luck to you.

    I love my Comp-Tac CTAC, it's by far the most comfortable holster I've ever used.

    I use a C-TAC for mine as well.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm probably going the leather route.

    My .02 Don Hume PCCH, if going for price value. Otherwise look at Mitch Rosen..I had an ARG That I really liked.

    I agree with the others. i reccomend getting some Kydex from Comptac and then getting on a long wait list from Sparks or Rosen. Be careful because you may not even want to switch from using Comptac's Kydex. It's that good

    I agree, Comptac makes a good product with great turn around time, and I like the Milt Sparks VMII as well as a really good leather IWB.

    I have a SIG P239 that I have carried for over a year. Take a look at this thread for a review of my K&D Holsters Cochise Defender.

    You could always do what I did and "create" your own custom holster using an easily obtained Don Hume OT, some spare leather and a couple clips from Comp-Tac.

    Here it is my original setup - C-clips and hogue grips


    Here's what I use now - V-clips and the std grips since the rubber hogues were catching on my shirts


    It works great tucked!

    How do those Vclips work exactly? Is that velcro on them? Looks interesting. Is it pretty secure?

    Leather

    I picked up a used Fist IWB leather holster for 8 bucks at a gun show. Have to say I really like it when I carry the Sig. No idea what model it is, but it has a little leather strip to prevent it closing up so that you can reholster one handed. Has a single metal clip to hold it to the belt and it has no retention strap.

    Very comfy I must say and absolutely silent drawing and holstering.

    Maybe a little too late as you may have already decided and ordered your holster but my .02 worth of experience with an Alessi PCH made for the P239 has been great. Amazing quality work, nice guy to talk with and if you are in a hurry you can order it from Lightning Arms(good guy there also) for a slight premium( mine was $125) and get instant gratification. comfortable even in this Florida summer, excellent retention and the split belt loop can be used to capture a belt loop(loop between the two snaps) and prevent any holster travel though I haven't noticed that as an issue with this holster. One last suggestion for a new P239 owner- after shooting it a bit and you find it doesn't quite sit right in your hand I am impressed with the difference Nill grips made for me. Rock solid and steadier than the plastic stock and the Pachmayer/Hogue slip ons could do for me (btw, Nill does the grips for Sig on their SAS models IIRC). Of course, YMMV, good luck and good shooting.
