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.

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.

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?

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.
