    Replacing my "night" gun

    For the past 10 years I've had my trusty Sig P239 .40 in my nightstand next to the bed. I've decided it's time to replace it for 3 reasons, first I want something with an accessory rail for a light, second I want higher capacity, and third I just want a new firearm

    I'm probably going to put it on consignment at my local shop, and my plans are to get either a PX4 Storm or a Glock in .40, just wondering if there are any other models I should be looking at in the $500 range?

    If you've shot that Sig P239 for 10 years, then you're very familiar with its controls. It's probably second nature by now. I would stick to something similar or you might find yourself trying to hit a safety that isn't there or something like that. Muscle memory will take over and you'll be working gun x like it was your P239.

    If you're hard set on getting a new gun, I'd stil keep the Sig.

    I have a Sig P229 with Crimson Trace Laser Grips as my "nightstand " gun




    It is a great shooter & you can really get on a target in the dark / semi-dark.

    The Beretta PX 4 is an excellent choice too.

    Normally a valid point, but it has no external safeties, which makes the Glock a good match, but if I went the PX4 route the safety would remain disengaged. The reason I'm probably going to sell it is I also want to replace my current CCW (Bersa Thunder 380) with a Glock 27 and an LCP for those times the Glock isn't convenient, currently when the 380 isn't convenient I carry nothing, which I don't like. I'm not able to afford purchasing 3 guns without letting the Sig go.
