    This is my first post. I recently bought my first Sig: P226 MK25. Love it. Love decocking mechanism too. Now I want Sig, 9mm with decocking device, but one that's more conducive for CC. I usually CC Glock 26 or Kel Tec PF9. Any recommendations?

    Sig makes a P239 that fits that bill.However you might want to go to Sig Sauer's website and check out all their pistols you will find all the models they make and specs.Welcome to the forum don't forget to stop the introductions page and get you're self introduced.

    It doesn't have a decocker, but it's 9mm, and a fantastic carry gun; P938.

    Ok, I'm looking at the Sig P239. Very cool. Do you own one or have you own one? How well does it conceal for you?

    P224 SA/DA is also worth a look.

    ***edit***

    Forgot, the 224 is only out in .40 as far as I know.

    No I don't own one yet!But I have been eying them for the last 5 years since the day I picked up my 226.From everyone I've talked to it's an awesome carry piece.Hard to find at least around here.I definitely want to get a hand on one.

    the P229 is a more carry friendly Sig that i about the same in function.
    The 938 is nice but it's not like the 226 or 229 in it's not got the decocker and is single action. It's mroe a coicked and locked gun like a 1911.

    I have a P239 in .40 S&W that I carry on occasion. It is not my favorite or EDC, however it is a very fine carry gun and probably my third or fourth choice for carry of the 23 handguns I own.

    I have the SP2022 that I use for concealed carry. Great 9mm with the de cock lever and fun to shoot.

    I use the Sig P238, which is the .380. If you want a 9mm I would recommend the P938. It's a great gun and you can't go wrong with it.

    Really? 23 carry guns or are some of them safe queens, etc?

    I have one; it conceals great IWB and is scary accurate. I gave up on the Kahrs, the Shield, Nanoo-Nanoo, etc and find the P239 to be just right.

    I carry the sig P239 SAS Gen 2 in 9mm. Absolutely love it. I own Glocks, XD-s, and other compact and sub-compact guns and carry them too, but my favorite is the P239. You will love it I am sure.

    I own a P226, P239 plus a 1911 and the wife has a P238.

    The advantage to the P239 is the single stack magazine. I usually carry a Sig 1911 SS Carry but if the occasion warrents slightly dressier attire, I will carry the P239 in a Crossbreed IWB. It is small enough to conceal easily, gives you at least 8 rounds in 9mm (don't recall the .40 cap.) but still large enough that you don't feel like you have something tiny in your hand.

    I have had it for about 7 years and always found it to be a dependable and accurate shooter.

    That would be my recommendation. I want one in 357sig. Love the SAS versions. The minor downside to this gun is that (while slim) it's actually a pretty medium sized gun, despite the seemingly subcompact capacity. But that also allows it to be extremely shootable.

    The P938 might also be worth looking into if you want a true subcompact. And I'd say avoid the P250 and P290 series guns.

    Have you shot or owned either the P250 or P290RS? I have a P250 in my family of Sigs and it is a great gun. Comes in 3 different sizes and any caliber you want. They shoot great also. What is it you don't like? It has a very smooth long DAO trigger that a lot of newbies can't shoot for ****.

    I've shot both. Both had lousy triggers and felt on the cheap side to me. At least in comparing them to similar offerings from S&W, Springfield, etc. And that's what it really boils down to for me. How does this gun compare to similar options in the market? For me, neither of those Sigs measure up. Apart from the 2022/2340 models (which I think are decent for the $400 price), I've been really unimpressed with Sig's attempts at poly guns.

    Just personal preference. I've shot a couple 250's...smooth would not be how I'd describe the trigger. I shoot mostly single actions (1911, BHP, CZ 75), but do have a couple Glocks and XDms. The only gun I've ever owned with a trigger I disliked more than the P250s I've shot would be a KelTec PF9.

    I've been looking into a 238 for my wife after we both shot a Friend's at our range. My wife is "auto-loader" phobic..

    Anything Bigger then a .22(her Browning) caliber wise she just won't bother with. Her hands give her trouble due to carpal & R.A....
    except her revolvers...which she can Bang away with all day(even .38+P's & .357's) as long as she has her Brace & Glove on...
