For concealed carry.
Looked at one today ... nice gun ...
Which begs another question ... is .380 enough stopping power?
P239 in .357 SIG > P232
(Also available in 9mm and .40 S&W.)
Some local LEO's carry .380's as back up guns. I carry a Kel Tec P3AT occasionally when I don't carry my XD40
I would carry one.
I carry a P3AT as a backup or when I am wearing light clothing/smokes run.
.380 has been a carry caliber for european police agencies for decades, just use good ammo like HydraShok, Golddots or Corbon.
If you want a small Sig get the 239 in 9mm.
Another vote for the 239.
A friend of mine carries a Sig 239 in .40 S&W and loves it. I've shot it quite a few times, and its a nice gun.
I love my P226, but too big for carry.
.380 is more than adequate if you're a good shooter. A BB gun would take someone down if you nail them in the eye.
Most gun owners are not good shooters.
ACP or SPL?
I was looking at a Beretta 84 Cheetah last Friday. It's a 380 ACP. That looks like a small bullet. I was wondering if it's enough for home protection.
I'm decent ... but that is at the range ... i'm not shue how I would be under pressure.
I think I'll go with the 239 in .40.
Better choice IMO. yes the .380 will do it, but the .40 gives you a little more room for error.
ditto on the 239
Go with the P239 looks better than the 232 IMO. SIGs in general are great guns. I have a 226 in 9mm and its a great shooting gun.
I don't feel undergunned at all with my .380 Makarov
If given the choice, I'd go with the 239. No reason to go smaller if you don't have to.
