P239 On the Way from Bud's to FFL

I decided to get my concealed carry permit in the near future. After taking a look at my handguns, I realized I didn't have anything that was an "ideal" size for concealed carry. The smallest handgun I currently own is a Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm - relatively small... FOR A FULL-SIZED handgun, lol.

So, after doing my research, I concluded that a P239 would be my first choice - right size, appropriate caliber, looked good, Sig's reputation, etc. Unfortunately, no local dealers had one that I could handle. After more researching, I realized that I'd be making some kind of compromise if I opted to go with something else. I noticed Bud's Gun Shop had a P239 SAS Gen 2 available, so I took a chance and ordered it from Bud's. Now, the item has shipped and is headed to one of my locally-owned gun shops.

I'm looking forward to seeing the handgun in person, and I will keep my excitement in check as I inspect the firearm before completing the transfer. I'm a bit nervous since I haven't actually handled a P239 in person. I've purchased one handgun sight-unseen in the past, and I eventually sold it after 3 months because it just didn't "do it" for me (performance-wise, I could never get the FNX-9 to perform as well as a PX4 Storm, for example).

Anyway, I'm pretty confident the P239 will turn out to be a good choice for what I want it to do. I'll give a brief "un-boxing" overview and quick range report after I get to run a couple of hundred rounds through the little fella.

What are your thoughts? A good choice with the P239 as a CCW? Honest opinions are fine - if you think I screwed up, let me know. I'll be the ultimate judge, though.

I would love to carry a P239. I was against single-stack autos for EDC, but my P245 changed my mind.

My brother's EDC is a 239. It easily conceals and I always have to ask him where he's carrying it that particular day. We are both of the same belief that there is no reason, based on self-defense statistics, to carry a "high capacity" EDC.

Kind of new to all the alphabet soup, so I had to do a web search to learn that "EDC" stands for "Every Day Carry." LOL

Love my 40 cal. 239! Just feels so natural to hold. Got Hogue finger grips, though you may want to keep the original grips for EDC. Congrats!

I'm no stranger to CHL, and my 239 remains on my hip.... several thousand rounds later and not one single failure.

I will be getting a slightly used 239 in a few weeks. A buddy of mine is a LEO and never used his except for qualifying.

I have looked at the 239...its a nice gun, and certainly a little smaller than my 228.

BUT....a note about single stack and carry. I will not knock it. If you have a low capacity mag- it would be wise to carry an extra mag. If you ever need your EDC, it may be for more than 1 shot. Don't assume that good shot placement is in you bag-no matter how good you can shoot at the range. You may not ever get a chance to aim, and your target/s may be moving and shooting back. It can be fast and furious, and you can empty your mag before you know it. You will probably miss more than you hit.

I recently had my eye on the P239. It snuck by me for awhile not seeing one in a shop. I haven't handled one yet. I love my P226 9mm but it's too big for my every day carry style (now doing LC9 pocket carry). Based on the P226, do you expect I would also like the 239?

I struggle to imagine a prolonged gun-fight scenario. But to each, his own.

Package arrived at FFL today from Bud's. They are booking it in now, and I can get it in another 1/2 hour or so. I'll go down after I wrap a few job-related things up to inspect the weapon and complete the transfer if all goes well.

I'll go to the range and pump a couple of boxes of ammo down it this weekend.

Congrats on your 239. I've owned one for a few years now and don't shoot it as often as I should.
