Newbie guidance

This is a discussion on Newbie guidance within the SIG Sauer Pistols forums, part of the SIG Sauer Forum category; I will definitely do that. Does the size of the gun change with the caliber at all or is it all the same?...

My 40 barrel is beefier. The conversion barrel is oversized to match it.
The 40 frame-slide is a little stronger, not really bigger. That is why Sig wants you to go down, but not up.
Another way of doing a conversion is getting a conversion slide from Sig.
Costs a little more, but you could also have say a 9mm in two tone, and a 40 all black.
The way I go about it, is the 9mm is a cheaper target round, ( I plan to shoot enough to pay for it ) and the 40 is a better carry round.
Also since the 229 was built and sold 40, I have to assume it is more dependable as 40.

Ok, final question (probably not), what is a reasonable price for a P239 in 9mm and 40? I dont want to go to the gun shop here in Chicago (suburb) or buy it on guns America and get ripped off. I know prices may be a bit inflated these days.

The problem comes if you order it from online it still needs to be shipped to a local FFL and they will charge you for that. I'm not sure what they charge in your area, but normally it will take up whatever you may save plus. Shop around and talk to your local gun dealers for what they charge. Check the big box stores like Cabela's, Bass Pro Shop, or Scheel's, if you have one in your area, to see what they have. This is where you need to do some leg work and talking to learn what you have in your area, and where you can get the best deal locally.

I rejoice in overturning the ban. However, "Nevertheless we order our mandate stayed for 180 days to allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public."

Shop now, but I'd wait to actually buy anything until the details are revealed.

It sounds like they're trying to ban anything that holds rounds of 10 or more, a large portion of semi auto pistols and all ARs. This state sucks. I assume there will be no grandfather clause either.

Buy the SIG. Keep it in your home. Learn to shoot it. Learn to love it. Then move!

the only thing that changes is recoil. a .40 with a three inch barrel will be kicking like a mule compared to a 5 inch barrel.

IMHO as a novice, stick with a 9mm. the .40 is the worst recoil of the three major semi automatic calibers.

remember on this video, the first, the .45 has a five inch barrel. the second, the 938 has a three inch barrel (9mm) and the last, the 229 is a 3.9 inch barrel with .40
