P229r with 2 spare SIG mags. 9mm
Is there something you don't like about the P239 for an edc gun, or are you just wanting to try something new?
I looked at many new and used SIGs before I bought my SP2022 in 9mm, including a P239 that was used but like new, but the final decision came down to the SP2022 having almost twice the capacity, and was significantly cheaper.
there is a P-239 .40 in my CCW rotation.
P220 Sport Stock with a TRL-1 is my nightstand gun.
P220 was my winter carry until I picked up an HK45C --I just carry the HK not matter the season now.
P220 is my HD now
I carried a P229 in .357 sig for a few years before swapping out for a Glock 32 and Glock 33. I love the Sig and didn't want to put any more wear on it than I already had. It is a better shooter than the Glock, way better overall gun in my opinion. The Sig was my first gun purchase so it has some sentimental value, the Glock is just a tool that I do not care anything about as far as wear and tear.
I've let go of all my other carries since getting comfortable with my P6...and I have no plans to invest in another sidearm until I find the right deal on a P228. The weapon is just fully instinctive in my hand as no other has managed.
I keep a P225 in the glovebox and I've carried the P239 or P230.
The G19 w M3X light is in the nighs stand.
I prefer to holster the 220 carry, but also trust my Kahr p9. Never a malfunction with either.
No, I just get gun-itis from time to time.
The FTU guys would always hate to see me coming, because I was always wanting to see what new gun they had I could check out or trade up/over for.
I got issued a Glock 17. I carried it for a while, but also carried my personal P226.
I then traded the G17 for G19, which I carried in a ankle holster as a backup.
I then bought a Beretta 92F, I carried for a while until it was taken off the approved list a year later.
Then I traded the issued G19 for an issued P228.
Then I bought a P239 9mm (two of them actually) and started carrying the 239 as an ankle gun.
Then I bought a P220 to carry, and I traded my issue P228 for a an issued P226.
Then we went to .40s and I had to turn the P226 in for a G22.
Then I turned the G22 in for a P229 (which I was carrying with the P239 as backup when I retired.
Now, I am at a new state agency, and I carry the P239 and a G17.
I won't even go into how many ARs, shotguns, and SMGs I carried and traded for as new ones came out (but range day used to be a daylight to dark exercise for me having to qualify on so much stuff ).
But, back to the Sig 2022. We had a few SigPros available in Miami and I only knew one guy that picked it over a P229 or G22 when the .40s came out. It was too new at the time for me to pick it. But, now, I just got the itch.
Sig 229 .40 here!
When I used to own a P239, I carried it from time to time. I always regretting selling it.
My next purchase will be a 229 40S&W

I carry my 226 quite often, with a Mec-Gar 17 round flush-fit mag and stoked with 124 gr +P Gold Dots.
P239 in .40 is my personal carry when home, although I've been carrying a Smith 642 a lot just lately (bought here on Glocktalk, in fact).
My favorite Sigs are the 229 and 220.
I carry a sig 229 in .357sig usually in a Milt Sparks summer special....and occasionally a colt 1911......
Have carried a SIG 226R on nice days. All German, triple serial#, solid trigger and steel guide rod ...... it's my baby.
Usually carry the G19 .......
I'd get the stainless. I just got one and it's a beautiful gun. I carry a P226 or P229 daily, depending on the season.
I have a P229 that I carry, sometimes I worry that I am going to screw it up. It is a pretty gun and I would hate my self if I f%#+ it up at all.
I carry my P226 when wearing the right clothes. My P232 otherwise. I'm going to buy a P239 soon and it will likely be carried most. Just don't like to carry my Glock. I prefer DA/SA. I enjoy shooting Glocks though.
