Well I finally broke down and ordered my Sig P239 9mm. I will officially be a 9mm handgun owner sometime next week.

I feel a little dirty. Feels like I'm cheating on my .45's and .357mag's.

Oh well. I'm excited about my 239 :)

Bought a two-tone for the Girlfriend as well.

Of all the 9mm's to get, that's a beauty.

I plan on shooting mine this weekend at the ISI compact match in Piru.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I held out for a decade (or more) before buying one - to make mayself feel like I wasn't cheating it was (is) a Springfield 1911 in 9mm (http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee126/northslope/IMG_2711.jpg)....then a Browning Hi-Power...

All of this finally culminated in my snagging one of my most prized revolvers: the Smith & Wesson 547 in 9mm. It has a one-of-a-kind extractor that allows use of 9mm ammo without moonclips. And (despite having a 3" barrel) it is a very accurate little sucker!

Congrats, great gun. A friend of mine just got one and love's it.

I'm a .45acp diehard, but I also own .40 and 9mm. Nothing wrong with having a few mistresses around as long as you go home with your true love.

If I were to own any 9mm it would likely be a Sig P239. Good choice man.

Yes it is - there is also a second frame-mounted pin (just above the firing pin) that, when the hammer strikes, helps hold the cartridge in place during firing. It's really ingenious.

I can't undersell the accuracy, either - I've had this little guy out at Panoche and shot at coffee cans at 60+ yards and "walked" the rounds in to the target. Not bad for a fixed-sight revolver.

What took you so long? :)

I love my wheel guns, but when it comes to practice and action shooting, the 9 is the ticket.

I just realized, I STILL don't have a hi-cap handgun.

1911's - 8 rounds
T/C's - 1 round
Wheelguns - 5 and 6 rounds
P239 - EIGHT FREAKING ROUNDS AGAIN....

Heh.

It'll never happen. Can't STAND Glocks! :)

I would be pretty happy with a true Israeli-made Jericho, though.
