    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    There is a thread going on right now about the P239.

    You can never go wrong with a SIG...

    but then, I might be biased...

    Welcome from Colorado.

    You will hear/ see lots written by people who prefer one gun manufacturer over another (Sig vs Glock vs S&W vs whoever). The reality is that all the major manufacturers make a pretty good product these days. The biggest differences are in feel, action type (Single action, Double/Single action, Double action only, etc) and features. It's up to you what feels right in your hand, what action type you prefer and what features you feel are required (low-lite sights, decocker, manual safety, etc).

    I'm partial to Sigs myself, I carry a P225 every day, but the best handgun for YOU is the one you are comfortable shooting, confident and skilled at shooting and that you actually carry with you so that it will be on hand if you ever need it. This means that you really must be comfortable shooting it and that you can afford to practice often. Ammunition cost is a factor for many people these days.

    Try shooting as many types of pistol as you can and heed the advice of experienced people you trust, but in the end pick what feels right for YOU.

    Good luck to you.

    Welcome
    Lot of good advice given already, The P239 is a good platform
    if you like it and comfortable with it, go for it.

    Welcome
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Welcome from NE Florida. I use a P239 for my daily carry gun. It has been 100% reliable and shoots a lot more accurate than I am able to aim it, but I thoroughly enjoy working on improving my aim via range sessions.
