Howdy. There's always lots of discussion about what is the "best" conceal carry handgun. First of all, I am a revolver person. I always prefer revolvers, but there are sometimes, exceptions. One exception is a Sig 239. I've owned one for many years, and I've carried it countless miles. The 239 does not get the publicity that other Sig's get, and I don't understand that. It is a single-stack, and that provides for a very comfortable grip, for me. That single stack also makes it quite concealable. Now, for the two best parts. My 239, in .40 caliber, is an extremely accurate gun, in spite of its size. It is also at the lower end of Sig's price range. Also, this gun is stainless, but it is finished in whatever blackening process Sig uses, and has proven to be extremely durable. So, I will be the last person to talk anybody into anything, but if a body was looking for a decent pistol, that body could certainly make poorer choices than the Sig 239. That's all, folks! WAYNO.
