    Zig-
    I shot one demo at a range and was surprised with the
    accurracy and comfort. It carries better than a glock27.
    I think it'll be a good fit. Enjoy-

    Ace, I've liked the Sig for years now. Beginning with the P226 in 9mm, then the P229 is 40cal. and now the P239 in 9mm. I'm truely impressed with the trigger. It's so much better than either of the others. I looked at holsters till I was blue in the face and settled for a boned/lined Safariland Hi-Ride (New Old stock from a local Dealer) matched with a 10rd mag (2-8rd extras) loaded with Winchester Law Enforcement 147gr. sub-sonic controlled expansion bullets should make a nice combination.

    Zigman-
    Try www.wilsoncombat.comThey have several non-1911 holsters available.
    They might have what you want.
    Galco and F.I.S.T. may also have a fit for you.
    I used to use the 147 grsubsonic ,but after reading some of the reports on over penetration with the round, I backed down to the Federal Personal Defense115gr.(or the Corbon
    when I can get to some where that has it).
    Like the Sig's ,also. Just wish their boreline was lower.That would make them even more ac.They have several non-1911 holsters available.

    Thanks for the info Ace. I needed to edit your post... somehow the EZ code had it all run together.

    Thanks again,
    Zig

    Jeez, Louise. I edited myself and made sure the t's were
    crossed and the i's were dotted and that it flowed normal.
    Sorry.
