Do you CCW a P239? Login/Join

Searched for a long time, and finally bought here on SigForum, a P239 9mm DAK Gen 1 SAS.

I love it and carry it regularly in one of Dustin's IWB holsters.

Love the trigger for a carry pistol. Love the width for carrying. I've got small hands so the grip works for me.

P239 is one of my favorites.

I bought my 239 in .357 sig many years ago.
It came with an extra barrel in 40, which I rarely shoot.
In .357 sig, it handles the limited nuclear round so well its easy to shoot.
I can carry it year around no problem, hardly know its there. With an 8 round mag and one in the chute, I've no concerns for a contact sport.

Out of my stable, its the only DA/SA I own as I' transitioned over to all SAO.
For a walk or quick jont out, I like my new 938, but the 239 will always get the nod when I want to fill my hands.

I've seen what the .357 does to more than one quadruped, and I carry with no worries.
An awesome piece of gear!

Not so much anymore, carry the P229C "carry" instead. Still own the P239 however Wink

I now usually carry my P225 A1 in a Don Hume own Holster, but will occasionally carry smaller choices based on clothing or environment. I had borrowed a P239 from a friend to test it for carry and loved it, but could not find one for sale at that time so bought the P225 which was readily available. I may still get a P239 in the future.

The P239 was the very first gun I carried. It actually lasted quite awhile until the P320 came out. I just couldn't justify the P239 with its heavy weight and low capacity. Now it's the P320 (compact slide on subcompact frame) or the Glock 19.

Everything in the carry world is a balancing of trade offs. In my opinion, considering all trade-offs, the P239 in 357 Sig is the best carry gun out there. I have regretted selling mine every day since I sold it.

I've gone back to carrying my 239. It's my favorite.

My EDC is either a P239 or P229 both in 357 Sig, depending on how I dress for the day. I shoot them both the same and since the controls are the same I am comfortable with either. The only time I notice them is when I don't have them on because I have to go into an establishment where carrying is illegal.

I used to carry my 239 a lot, but the older I get the more sensitive I'm getting to weight on my hip, so I've pretty much gone to lighter guns. I carried 1911's for years and years, then the 239 and I'm going to start carrying my newly purchased 938 when I get it broken in.

Since I live in NJ (a whole other republic)I can only dream of carrying my P239. I bought it in .40 and have the .357 barrel and rarely shoot .40 with it. .357 round is awesome to shoot. I've traded and sold many of my guns over the years and the 239 is still here. I love it and would carry it if I lived in a free country...rats

After a month of carrying the P320, I went back to the P239 today. Love the 320 but I want a hammer when reholstering.

For the last few months my P239 SAS two-tone .40 S&W has supplanted a P245 as my EDC.

I find it to be an excellent carry gun. The only problem I have with it is that my wife covets it, and if I set it aside she appropriate it as "hers" - under the theories: "it was just sitting there in the safe; and besides, it's too pretty to be a guy's gun." Wink

Even if you want hammer fired, the P239 never struck me as the best choice.

It's ok, I'm not attracted to small breasted women either Wink

My first Sig was a SP2340. Even with the small grip, it's to big for me to shoot more than a couple rounds when it walks in my hands. I bought a P229 for the greater capacity/fewer mag changes for classes. I shoot it well but it's still too wide for me to shoot really well.

The single stack with Hogue finger grooves is perfect for me. I'll give up capacity for accuracy and for better concealment any day.

There's a bazillion people carrying Glocks, not my thing in any size.

I'll stick with what works for me including 34FF Smile

My 239 in 9mm continues to be my non-Summer carry. This weekend I removed my Hogue G10 grips and replaced with original grips and Talon rubber grips. G10's were too aggressive for IWB.

For you? Me? Or are you choosing for Brad?

I don't mean to single you out BBMW, but on the forums, if someone carries a 5-shot revolver, no one bats an eye. Mention you conceal a P239 everywhere you go, "It's too heavy. It's under capacity" is the usual response.

For me, its:
-Single stack concealability
-Shoots like a full size
-Familiar Sig DA/SA
-It's got a hammer for those who like them.
-sweet ass trigger

For me, all other choices I've explored might be lighter, might have more boolits, but they are downgrades. Last resort guns when I could be carrying one I enjoy shooting well.

I've said it before (maybe even in this thread ) and I'll say it again. I keep trying to find a better off duty gun than my 239. 228,229,G19,226,6906,3953,1911 but I always go back to my 239. I think it's the best for what I use it for.

Agreed. I ditched the P239 in favor of the H&K P2000 SK. It's more concealable with higher capacity, and comes in hammer fired SA/DA.

I carry a P239-9mm (+1 spare mag) while off duty. It's the perfect compliment to my department issued P226R-9mm.
