    It is a necessary post to remind posters what web site this is. The website is about GLOCKS, not Sigs, or Rugers, or any others.

    I like the P239. I have a 9mm. I carried it a bit.

    If I was going to buy another and use it for EDC carry I would go with a P239 in .357 SIG.

    First off, I have TWO Glocks, a G-27 and a G-34.

    I also have TWO Sig's, a P229-9mm, and also a P220.

    When I was looking for my first semi-auto, 13-15 years ago I looked at, and handled many different guns, and at that time I wasn't even aware of Sig's.:dunno:
    When I picked up the P229 it fit my hand like a glove that I had worn for years!

    I've ran 5-6 thousand rounds through that gun wit ony ONE feed issue, which turned out to be a defective shell casing.

    If I could only have ONE handgun....it would be the P229.

    I bought the P220 a few years later simply because of the great deal ($547) but honestly I'm not as fond of it as I amd the P229.

    All of this said, IMO the Sig's that I own, even though I have carried them in quality IWB holsters are a bit too large for IWB, at least for me.

    Here's my new baby, just messing around in the kitchen with a towel and a photo app.

    In the early 90's I carried a P226 on and off duty for a while, because I thought it was cool and stylish. Turns out, the only things worse than a gun with a long heavy double-action pull on the first shot, followed by a mushy single-action pull after an inch of slack on the second, is a gun where somebody decided to put the bore axis as high above the hand as possible. I traded it for a Colt Delta Elite.

    I am spending some indoor range time with it today. Excited, not only because I get to shoot it some more but that I have the honor of taking a friend who was a local police officer who was almost killed in the line of duty when he was shot in the face with a .357 magnum, in a coma, quadrapalegic and is now recovering to function enough to want to get out and spend some range time with me. Can't wait.
