I put an offer in on a Sig P239 to a LGS that has one listed for too much money. When they say no then I'll wait till the spring and get a P320 SC in 40 S&W. Figure by then the new triggers will be in production. Getting some very positive reports on the upgraded trigger.

Those P239s sure are nice, especially since I'm a sucker for hammers, but they're way too proud of em.
For 9mm, I'll stick with my Springfield Mod 2. It's 3 1/2 oz lighter (empty), and holds 14 rounds with the flush mag, and comes with an extended mag. Also has the best out of the box SAO trigger I've ever felt.

The P239 was in 40 S&W and they said 95% and were asking $560. I offered $525 for it and they sent an e-mail back saying no thanks. I can get a new P320 sub-compact cheaper than $560 and it is 4 1/2 oz lighter and holds 10 rounds instead of 7. The P239 is all steel DA/SA and that has appeal but it is way too pricey and I hear Sig is stopping production. I'll wait until spring and get the P320 with the upgraded trigger. I'll sell my Blackhawk 45C/45ACP convertible then.

I like the new 320 trigger but have only dry fired as yet. I have seen comments about the slide being lowered in the mod as well which would explain why mine came back with a new slide but, being black instead of the original FDE I really can't tell. I really need to get to the range!
Mine is the P320C, I carry with a 10 round mag, very comfortable!!

I ignore them. Two Hundred Million people in The United States and people expect two hundred million different grip sizes? Give me a break.
That is why God created the S&W M&P and the Sig P320! :-D:-D:-D

326 million as of this month, according to U.N. estimates and Census figures. Double what it was in 1954. I was born in '56; no wonder things seem crowded lately.....:roll:

There are 125 million households, and a third own a gun. That's 40 million, but there are an estimated 300 million guns, so a lot of people own more than one. Gee, whodathunk? There are some claims that ten percent of the gun owners own ninety percent of the guns.

I read a lot of comments about Bearcat grips being too small. Not too small for me. My middle finger just presses the meat of my thumb. They'd look a bit odd with Single-Six size grips.

The Luger grip angle is very similar to a Glock. As are the Ruger Mark pistols. And you rarely hear anyone complaining about either of them. In fact the Luger is constantly referred to as one of the most natural pointing pistols ever manufactured.
Personally I this it has more to do with feel / shape rather than angle. My P226, P320 and M&P9s are all similar angle but different is shape, the P226 being the largest but a natural fit for my hand & trigger finger placement, the M&P9 next. Although I like and daily carry my Shield or P320 I do have to practice more for proper trigger finger placement. Don't remember even thinking about it with my Glocks.

I've shot a Glock since 2003 and never noticed the grip angle . I shot a SA 1911 for over 30 yrs in matches and switched to a Glock small frame which is DA . I had no problem shooting it. The 9mm/40 Glock frame is perfect size for me with small hands to shooting DA . The 10mm / 45 frame is too large for me to shoot DA . The grip size and trigger finger is 10 time more important then angle . Now the GEN 4 with inserts help people with larger hands . The pic below tells the finger placement for SA or DA guns . .Glock in was the 1st and only double stack , double action gun I could shoot .
