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 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.

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 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'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.
