Welcome from Tennessee! The Sig 239 is an excellent firearm and 9mm is a very effective round especially using +p ammo.
Welcome to Tennessee, the patron state of shootin' stuff.--SHOOTER

--- Some of the friendliest people I have ever talked to are gun owners and shooters and according to the gun activists we are the mass murders and felons of the nation???
I hope you find this to be a friendly and informative place to spend some spare time!
Always happy to have new members and I hope you choose to contribute here with us. Lots of lively debate!
Sounds like you have narrowed down your quest for a good defenive gun and of all you have listed, each one is a fine weapon.
As another poster stated, don't worry about getting one that turns out not to be the one you like best! Guns really hold their value and you should be able to sell it without problems if you don't like it!
For me, it's an extremely rare day that I'll get rid of one. If it turns out to be one that doesn't fit me or something I usually will just keep it and acquire a new one!
Buying guns can get to be a habit if you aren't careful!
I hope you come to really enjoy shooting like the rest of us. Not only is it a fun and relaxing sport, but it's one that can be used to directly save your life or that of a loved one some day!
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
As for handguns just try as many different ones as you can. I'd recommend 9mm or .380. If you are looking for a carry gun you will trade lite and concealable for some ease of shooting. It's hard to conceal a big, heavy gun but the lite ones are harder to handle when shooting. You need to try many to determine what works.

Hi, cb! That 239 would be a hard-to-beat "first gun"!

Welcome from Texas!
sounds to me that you're off to a great start trying out a lot of different weapons and calibers, thats the way to do it!
get something that you can 1) handle, 2) shoot great, and 3) that YOU picked out, not someone else!
