    Conceal and Carry sig?

    Hi,

    Can someone recommend a Sig that would be good for a conceal and carry? I hate to compare but similar to the size of a Glock 26 basically. I really like Sig's but am only really familiar with the 226 size and was wondering if anyone could give me advise about a smaller one. I have small hands and I am small person so need a smaller firearm when it comes to being concealable.

    Thanks,
    Jo-Anne

    Not very familiar with the physical size of a G26 (never had one in my hands before), but the P230/P232 is roughly the size of a Walther PPK and slightly larger is the P239. Both are fairly common choices for females from the SiG line as they seem to fit better in their hands than the larger offerings of the P228/P229, P220 and P226.

    The P230/P232 is about 6oz lighter than the G26 (loaded weight in both) and slimmer if that helps with some comparison info.

    Coming soon is the P238 if a miniature 1911 is more to you liking. They can all be researched more here: http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/Sho...x?categoryid=1

    BTW, greetings and welcome aboard.

    Googling I found these for some side-by-side between the two SiG models I suggested, the P232 and P239:

    Comparing thickness



    Comparing length

    Agreed!

    P239 gets my vote for concealing a Sig.. Conventional Sig action vs the P232 which is more like the PPK action.

    If you want higher mag capacity the P229 is not too bad to carry concealed. I use a MTAC IWB with my 190lb 5-11 build.

    These are brand new from Sig so I doubt you'll find many reviews on their use, if any, but they are definitely in the G26 realm: the P238 and P250 subcompact.

    JoJo, I'm using the Sig 228 as my weapon of choice for CCW, in a Bianchi OWB holster.

    That Sig P250 SUB-compact is pretty cool! ... Those out in the market yet? I hear nothing about the 250 in sub-compact, but looks like an awesome platform.

    I like the Sig 239 for concealed carry. My secretary also has chosen a 239 for her concealed carry piece, as has the secretary at one of my friend's law firm.

    One of my concealed carry pieces is the Sig P239/357sig. An absolute great shooter, that.

    I own both the 232 & the 239 SAS. They are both great handguns for concealed carry. If you are concerned with size, I say go with the 232. Although it is only slightly smaller than the 239, you definitely feel the difference after a full day of carrying concealed. Truth be told, my Kimber 1911 feels lighter and slimmer than my 239. Which is why I carry that instead, plus it's a .45.
    Man's got to know his limitations.

    +1 for the P6 although the price of magazines has spiked suddenly.

    Absolutely.. They're very shoot-able for ladies. My wife has already punched down her flag and claimed my 226. She loves it. I don't think I'm getting it back. hehehehe The 229 is simply a more carry friendly version of the same shooter really.. Little shorter grip and barrel. The 239 would just be that much more concealable though I haven't had the pleasure to shoot one..... yet.
