    Just bought a brand new Sig Sauer P239 in .40 S&W, my favorite SD round. It is an exceptional firearm in my short experience with it (about 400 rounds now over the past two days without one malfunction, misfire or misfeed). 7 + 1 rounds of .40 S&W Gold Dot Hollow Point Personal Protection with an extra magazine holding 7 rounds. The night sights are great, very similar to my Ed Brown Kobra Carry 1911 night sights. The SA trigger is smooth and crisp with an excellent hammer. I carry with one in the chamber and in DA with the stronger trigger pull. Each shot after the first is in SA. It is a great pistol and although it is a little pricey, IMO it is an excellent choice as a CCW.

    Maybe an ankle holster? What good makers and models are there?

    Very nice. I have the exact same gun (same grips too) and have been carrying it almost every day lately. It makes a great CCW.

    Nice gun! The Sig P239 has always been a gun I've wanted to buy. I looove Sig's SA trigger, but I think if I got the P239, it would be the SAS w/ the DAK trigger. I'd replace the wood grips with the grips you have, since they are thinner.

    Do the .40s&w models have a thicker slide than the 9mm? I looked at a 9mm once and compared it to a glock 19 (which I happen to own). The slide was exactly the same width as the 19, which is rather thin compared to other guns (ie USP,XD,M&P). The waistline of the gun by the control levers gets a little fatter, but then it slims down again for the grip due to the single-stack design. These are good dimensions for IWB carry, but I'm just curious if the .40 model is any fatter than the 9mm.

    Very nice, the Sig's are pretty distinct-looking.

    Any accuracy trials as of yet?

    Just bought one in 9mm, and love it. Don't have it in my hands yet, but have put about 300 rounds through a different one, with no problems. Not a carry gun for me due to CA, but I have small hands, and the gf feels comfortable with it as well, she actually picked it.

    Check out Galco for the ankle holster. A great holster for my P239 although I will say that the gun is on the upper edge of being too big for the ankle. Congrats on the new Sig, Bill
