I've been switching between P239 9mm and Glock 19 for EDC. Prefer the 19 based on available rounds, but P239 is nice

I carry a P229DAK in .357SIG over my other option of the FN FiveseveN , I immensely prefer it to the Glock of my last job.

My EDC is a Sig P238. Just got a Glock 26 so we'll see if that will change.

I'm issued a P220R, and I'd like to get another P225.

The P238 is really nice. Have also done the P229 and P250 at times. The Sig 1911 for fun at the range.

Lots good replies so far thanks.

I'm thinking of adding another sig to madness which one do you think?

The P226 Elite Stainless, Or the P226 Elite dark?

I like the Beavertail and I don't have any 9mm's.

I would most likely carry this after a 1000 rd's or so.
I think with the right ammo a 9mm makes a good carry Caliber.

BTW the weight as far as a carry gun makes no difference to me I carry a 3LB 1911 or a p220 now.

I shoot my P239/357 and P220/45 better than my other autos.
Still carry my Glock G27 and Kahr MK40 Elite though.
It just depends on what I'm wearing, where I'm going and
what kind of mood I'm in that day.

My Sigs are keepers for sure!

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.

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 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.
