    So I have a sig p239 .40 and I love the gun... but I recently got a G27 and I have found I carry the Glock more, cause its lighter. Now if I were to sell the sig id get a diff gun, a Springfield EMP .40 ( iv never shot one but love the look) Iv held one a few times at gun shows. Or perhaps a Kimber ultra Carry .40 What should i do! :confused:

    I have a few guns but each one serves a purpose whether it be hunting, concealed carry, home defense, range, fun with the family, etc. I had one gun that sat in my closet having no purpose. I got rid of it and got something I would actually use. If the Sig was to be a carry gun and the Glock has taken that spot, and if the Sig doesn't give you joy, get rid of it.

    I sold my P239 after I stopped carrying it because it always threw my off (because the DA/SA) to shoot it, and then shoot my other carry guns (DAO) XD40 and PM40. I used the funds from the sale to pick up a Springfield S.S. loaded 1911A1 (for target and HD purposes) and haven't looked back.

    It's generally always a bad idea to sell a firearm, especially one that you like -- and you indicate here that you like the SIG. If you do choose to sell it, at some point, somewhere down the road, you will regret it and will start looking for another SIG to replace it. That SIG will undoubtedly cost more than what you paid for the original piece, but you won't be happy until and unless you get a like-minded SIG back in the fold.

    So do that -- or, you can keep the SIG you have now and forget the whole thing and chalk it up to a fleeting bad thought.

    I have a bad experience with the EMP. I get regular FTEs, and it is quite picky with ammunition.

    Don't sell your P239! It is a great gun and you'll regret it. :)

    ditch it

    it's low capacity, heavy, and not all that accurate.

    You can get all of those traits from a hi-point for hundreds less :bluelaugh:

    Mine is very accurate. All this talk about capacity... hi-cap is fine if your skills are lacking and you plan on missing a lot. It is not very heavy and what heft there is helps absorb recoil.

    Don't sell it, or if you do, sell it to me. :)

    You must not have seen the Rambo movies. He missed a lot. ;)

    Too much ado about hi-cap when statistics show defensive encounters are nearly all just a few shots.

    And I was paraphrasing a quote by the late great Elmer Keith.:thumbup:

    OP, don't sell it... you'll regret it later.

    Not true. That's a commonly misstated statistic.
    Kind of like %94.3 of all statistics are made up on the spot.


    The same guy that claimed he dropped a deer at 600 yards with an iron sighted revolver? Huh
    The only things he ever shot at had 4 legs or wings and wasnt firing back.
    I might take hunting advice from him... but as far as personal protection goes, he had ample posture, no substance.

    I still think the best part of having the sig is telling people you have a sig... the gun itself is mediocre at best.

    It's has middle of the range reliability, accuracy, and functionality... for top tier prices.

    Yeah, that must be why Sig is the weapon of choice for so many SOF's.:thumbup:

    And I'll take EK's advice and knowledge over introwebz know-it-all's every day of the week... just the way I roll.
