my mom just picked up a P239 in 9mm, NIB, for 586.
we rented one before and its awesome, well balanced, great grip, easy to shoot, and really controllable.
she tried a glock19, USP 45 and a featherweight revolver before settling on the SIG.

yea chicks seem to like those....
cause it fits their hands way better...

face it, unless you're nicole bass, a female hand is smaller than most male.

was it springfield armory's XD with a removable backstrap so you can interchange it with a smaller one?

normal size semi auto 9mm are made for a male sized hands...

No the Xd doesnt had a removable backstrap. Walther does.

Yes, actually, it does. It's just that you need a hammer and chisel to discover this. :lol:

BTW I just got one in not too long ago for fellow Gunnie Kilbie and I still have no idea why people like these so much. There just isnt enough of an angle on the damned grip for me, annoying grip safety, and the trigger leaves so much to be desired. Usually a gun that works well for me naturally points close to target but this thing feels like I am pointing a T square...or a russian tokarev which you can do drafting with.

Oh well it conceals well and fits his big hands so I guess if it works thats all you need to ask.

I had a P239 in 9mm for a while, it was a really nice gun. I sold it eventually because it was a carry piece, and I realized that it didn't make much sense to carry it in it's 9mm flavor becasue there were so many other 9mm pistols that were either a whole lot smaller or held twice that many rounds, so I sold it and bought a G19- same rough size, 16 rounds instead of 9. Doesn't feel quite as nice though.

In fact, the P239 in .357 Sig is what Air Marshals use, isn't it? I'd carry one in .40 or .357 sig.

Yep ^^

They use a P239 in .357 Sig.
It's a nice shooting gun just ever so slightly small in my own hands.
Agreed regarding your swap frm the Sig to the Glock due to capacity. My left hand really liked your Glock. :p
But don't tell Brucelee :p
