Beretta 92fs or Sig p239 9mm
Which would you recommend for range use, defense & occasional carry

Beretta $549.00 or sig for about $200 more?

I'd choose the P239.

But you're talking about two almost diametrically opposing guns in their design. The Beretta is bulky, has lots of switches and catch points, and for most it's not a great carry choice. It'll do just fine as a range/home defense gun though. The Sig is slim and built for carry. The only real knock on the P239 (besides price) would be its limited capacity.

The Sig would be my call, but I really think the best answer is to expand your search beyond those two models.

Of those 2 choices, I would probably go with the Sig if you plan on carrying it. But I sure want a Beretta!

I currently have a Glock 21 for shtf, Glock 27 for carry, a sig mosquito & a ruger sr9c because I thinks it's pretty bad a--....just looking to expand my collection & was hoping I could get some feedback to help the decision

If your going to carry get what feels best. I own 12 sig's and there all great!

Definitely go with Sig.

I never see any love for the Beretta on these threads. Is it a mediocre weapon?

I own both. I definitely pull for Tue Sig. It's much better. It just seems higher quality.

In my opinion, yes. I think a CZ 75b essentially fits into all the same classifications (style, size, weight, controls, etc) at a similar price, and is a far superior gun. I also like its slimmer profile. I'd say the same about a BHP, but it's a little more expensive.

But the M9 has no shortage of loyal followers, so take my opinion as just that. And it can be a good option for someone who prefers a larger grip.

To your original question- If the price and size to capacity ratio of the P239 don't deter you, then that's what I'd probably suggest. And maybe give CZ a look.

Yeah don't think for a second that Beretta is inferior. I love my M9. Most people on here will probably say Sig, and I can't deny that Sig makes a mighty fine handgun. But personally, I would go with the M9. I have bigger hands so it fits like a glove, and throws whatever I make it eat more accurately than any Sig I have shot. I'd take a 92 anyday. I'd take a 92 over a BHP. :eek:

Yeah.. I said it... :p
