Fierce Rainbow Titanium Sig Sauer P239

 

I applaud Sig’s effort in going after even the smallest gun markets.

You can check out the Sig Sauer website – HERE

What do you say openly gay frequent commenter “That one guy” … is it fierce enough?

Others feel free to chime in too with your suggestions on how it could be improved.

This looks shooped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shoops in my time.

Why is “That looks shopped” the argument of the new millennium?! The pixels are not off enough to prove a thing, and I’ve been doing graphics editing for 20 years.

The gun IS legit and looks the exact same way from a WIDE variety of gun pros AND from SIG’s summer catalog as well…..pixelation not withstanding. SIG is also releasing a diamond plate P239.

I never understood people wanting shiny guns?! I don’t want light reflecting off mine or light reflection screwing up my sighting something in. Am I missing the attraction, or is it just an ego/attention thing?!

To be fair, the word “FIERCE” is indeed ‘shopped onto this image. For comparison:

So are the words “EVERYDAY, NO DAYS OFF GUN BLOG.”

I don’t think that’s what was trying to be pointed out though. I could be wrong.

LOL. Until I just was rereading this thread, I didn’t even notice that the word “Fierce” is spelled wrong. Remember – “I after E, except after C, and in words sounding “A” as in neighbor and weigh.”

Fierce? It’s spelled correctly. I just double checked.

True, and so is the Everydaynodaysoff logo. I meant that rainbow titanium coloring was not shopped. No, the FIERCE was put there…..not sure by whom down the line though. Most of the images that I found on other sites did NOT have the FIERCE on them. There is only one other blog/site that I found that did have the FIERCE on it and it appears to have been ripped off of here…..or possibly the other way around…..lol

You can’t tell anything of that sort on a low quality 780×613 jpeg picture. Probably saved on a lower quality, web-ready setting, adding to the pixelation problem.

It’s over on thefirearmblog website:

It was shown here:

Oh, and here, on the website sigsauerguns.com, they announce it:

And how about this – video of the Sig handgun project manager showing it:

Might want to make an appointment with your optometrist before trying to diagnose any pictures as fakes in the future.

You guys seriously need to take a look at knowyourmeme.com once in a while. The “This looks shopped from the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time” is a meme used as a joke. He wasn’t really saying that the gun was fake.

I see that, for some unknown reason, the comment I left last night pointing out other instances of this gun is hung up… maybe it will eventually come through.

If I was gay I wouldn’t go anywhere without a gun. I think I would want it to look more intimidating though.

That one guy June 12, 2011 at 03:52 am

I feel so loved…. *sniff*

Is it fierce enough? In the ugly department yeah :/. Support pride by toting around an insultingly ugly hand gun? One that’s not even a .45? Someone’s looking for a limp-wrist slap D:< *Le slap*. And if someone buys this with the serious intention of supporting gay pride… *Le pistol whip*

The only thing this rainbow finished monstrosity will support is a couple of laughs from your gun buddies lol.

And somehow this is still less gay than those ginormous revolvers you see truckers and bikers and tough guys carry around. Long, hard, they flaunt it, when threatened they usually threat back "I will shove my*insert giant magnum heer* Up your ass", and they usually carry it in such a way that they can fwip it out at any moment and put it to someone's forehead or cheek or mouth or rear. Replace gun with penis and holster with aussiebum briefs and hiyoooo (http://www.hiyoooo.com/)

… By that logic, if you wanna support the pride, go buy a magnum with the longest barrel you can find and an itty bitty holster to put it in, and not this rainbow tinted crap. If the end of the barrel is poking out of it, plus points for you xD

I’m not gay but one of these is coming home. The wife wants a handgun and this one matches her pocket knife. Not everything has to be taticool black. Frankly a titanium nitride coating is slicker than the Nitron finish they usually use. Perhaps this one won’t need a quarter inch of grease on the rails to prevent premature rail wear.

Reply

That one guy June 12, 2011 at 08:13 am

No desert eagle for the wife? :3

Just make sure you get it in the .40 so she’ll actually stop something if she’s ever forced to use it lol.

Reply

Paranoid in Montana June 13, 2011 at 07:00 am

The gun she will shoot is worth more than the one she won’t. .40 isn’t some magical talisman that causes bad guys to fall down when the see the barrel. You actually have to hit something vital. Just like any other bullet.

On behalf of the pro 2A group in San Francisco “Pink Pistols” (or something like that), Sig should make this with a pink frame.

Chefjeffh June 12, 2011 at 11:52 am

I’m sorry but it just looks cheap, like something you could buy in the toy section at Dollar General. I think Sig should do a little research on the Gay community. Not all gays love shiny and gawdy. I need a handgun, but I don’t think I would keep that one even as a gift. I’m with “that one guy”, I think I’ll go with a medium sized gun that packs a punch and doesn’t feel like I’m waving a bowling ball around, and taking Thanatos suggestion, doesn’t reflect light. P.S. Not gay, I just like the extension of their Penis.

That one guy June 12, 2011 at 09:09 pm

If you wanna show support, slap some salmon-pink triangles on it somewheres. Not coat it in a “Cheap dollar store rainbow film that you can scratch off with your fingernails” coating. But this is less a gay pride thing than it is just an option. Could have sworn they offered it long before this :3

And yer damn right we all aren’t about the gaudy and the bling and such. I’ll take my guns plain jane, and dark. Black on black never hurt nobody. You have to shield your eyes to look at that sig D:

But it sounds like you don’t even need a tactical strobe with one of these things!

The finish is crazy durable, though. I have a Rainbow Leek that’s only got the tiniest hint of scratches, and it’s datestamped 2003.

Just imagine how someone might feel, after being shot with this… That would be a very embarrassing scar.

I know what you mean. My car was hit by a mid-nineties Mustang Cobra that had the mystic paint that changes colors depending on the light and the angle you view it from, kind of like this gun, and I was so embarrassed. It would have been much less embarrassing to have had my car wrecked by an all black Mustang.

It should say, “FIERCCCCCCCE.” So when you say it there’s a full two seconds of the “s” sound.

If you want really shiny, take a look at the diamond plate one they are also selling!! You wouldn’t have to shoot them, you can blind both them and you for life with the shiny $h*t!!!!! Hell, throw a couple of high intensity strobes on top of it just for the added flare!

If you really wanted to make fun, you should have publicized the “grip and recoil improvements, to reduce limp-wristing!”

Or not. A lot of Pink Pistols (slogan: Armed gays don’t get bashed) are outstanding shooters.

That one guy June 15, 2011 at 10:08 pm

I’m sure even those… less than savory folk who are part of the Pink Pistols would agree that Rainbow Titanium is an ugly choice lol.

The real funny thing here is that on Sig’s Announcement via Youtube their rep says it is offered in 9mm when it is a .40

– silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!

Reply

Josh July 6, 2011 at 09:32 am

It’s just a finish on a P239, right? A P239 comes in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG. So, what the hell are you talking about?

Reply

santoochi July 6, 2011 at 07:34 pm

Because like all things Sig Sauer they will NOT SELL YOU something they don’t want to and they don’t want to sell you a P239 in titanium in 9mm. Among the other things they won’t sell you are adjustable night sights for this gun, although they do have them and they will install them if you send them the gun. They simply will not take an order for this in anything but .40 and if you ask why they will send someone to your home and make you eat schnitzel and do pushups while listening to the Scorpions “Rock You like a Hurricane”. It’s happened like 3 times to me already and I plan on calling again tomorrow…

I would expect schnitzel from a German company; maybe cheese would be more appropriate for a Swiss one.

I just said schnitzel- but leave it to a German to insert an extra wiener.
