Wow! Just got back from running 100 rounds of 9mm through my brand new Sig P-239. Yep......there really IS a difference ;-) This thing just won't miss! Either that or I really improved since the last time I shot a few days ago.
I've read that certain guns were more accurate than others but only having owned 2 others with one being a Smith 442 ( which doesn't count in the accurate shooting dep't) I didn't believe it. Now I do.
I think I even scared the guy away that was shooting a few stalls down from me. He was all over the place and I was punching out .50 cent size holes :-)

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

Haha - another one comes over to the SIG camp
Glad yours shot so well - I sure know that any deficiencies in accuracy when I shoot any of mine, are 100% down to me!

Does the Sig have the same grip angle as the old Lugers? The Luger is the only gun that I've ever shot that I can actually post targets (which are on the old computer, which died about a year ago) and look like a professional.
The ONLY time that I fired a full magazine and it looked like I fired three shots and then quit. I thought I had at first until we really started to look at the target. 15yards (can't remember the round specs, it was surplus because my Luger is .30, not 9mm).
Interested in knowing if it (the Sig) has the same specs. If so.... well, I have have to go over to the Sig Side as well.

The 239 is one of the few 9mm's I've tried that I can shoot accurately. I would gladly carry one if my Colt were unavailable for some reason. Nice choice.

Excellent! Sigs are certainly great guns. I am starting to carry my sig pro a lot now.
