I just got a P239, wow! It's perfect for CCW. I love my P226, but I think I like the P239 more. I can see getting more of them. P239 all the way!

Love the 229. I think it gives you more than the 239 as far as handling and capacity for not much more in size.

I carry one, have fired 3k or so rounds with it, and never had a hit of any slide related issue. I have to wonder: who is having rattle out of their p239? What have they been doing with it?? The instructions do say "not intended to be used as a blunt instrument or for sinking nails during home or RV repair." Something like that anyway..

i think you would like the p239 or p250c in 9mm. they are both very fine weapons and good ccw's. either would be a good choice.



my p239 in 357sig does not have any rattles to it. maybe there is something wrong with the one you checked out.

.40 is a compromised round in my opinion. 9mm with lots of rounds or .357sig with lots of impact.

I don't wanna spark a ballistics debate, but I'm curious why you think .40 is a "compromised round"?

.40 is a sub-sonic, high impact, and *usually* ballistically superior(especially w/high perf. loads)to the other rounds...



I too prefer 9mm. for versitility, higher capacity, availability, +P & +P+ options, etc...



Just curious is all...

You get less rounds without enough of improvement in force. I would rather have lots of +P 9mm or a few less rounds of .357sig. (Or 10mm & of course .45acp) There is too much snap when shooting a .40 and there doesn't need to be there. The .357 sig has all the power plus more and doesn't flip the muzzle like the .40. The .357sig actually gives you more of a "boom" than a snap.



While I know .40 has it's place, like in light loading for IDPA or similar competition, it is inferior when it comes to a self defense round.



There are a lot of different opinions out there, mine it just one. I guess the price is more popular for .40 than .357sig as well.

I will stick with the .40 S&W - but that's my choice, based on experience and ballistics! JB

Well, I agree with with the 9mm., cause it's my preference as well.

But not so much with the rest....



Regular .40 rounds are superior to regular 9mm. & .357, but when you start getting the higher performance rounds, it's always gonna be a catch-22, because you have to sacrifice either penetration, or expansion.I'd almost ALWAYS(unless armor becomes a factor) take a .40 weapon over a .357 because expansion is much larger, and over-penetration isn't really needed, and they hold the same amount of rounds too..I dunno, I guess every caliber has it's own place in the ballistic world, but at the end of the day, shot placement with a .22 will kill someone just like a .45 will, just with less effect. LOL
