I apologize--due to a typo I listed my comments as a P239. If it can be moved to the P229 page-please feel free to move the comments. In fact, I was commenting on a P229. It is a .40 SW and I have carried it. Heavier than my other carry guns so it may end up as a night stand gun. I do like the P239 since I like 9 MM for concealed carry and the lesser weight of this model.
