Sig's new P238 has the company's distinctive look and feel, with an impressive profile and size. It packs six rounds of .380 but makes up for the small caliber due to it's 1.1 inch width.

Bezeled edges and thin controls make it a superb choice for an ultra-compact carry pistol.

The P238's slide is available in nitron or stainless finishes and can be fitted with factory night sights.

p 238

the only thing i don't like about my 238 is single action. To get the first shot off you will have to pull hammer back. Or you can leave the hammer back and walk around with the safety on.

I carry a P238 as my backup. It is carried condition 1 at all times. All I need to do is draw, select fire and pull the trigger. I also carry my Kimber Ultra in the same fashion as my primary. I just think racking the slide to get it loaded is excess motion and allows the other person time to line up on me. Just me though.

I have had my P238 now for about 3 weeks and love it (primary carry) had it @ the range several times with no problems to report. I shot several FMJ target rounds as well as some self defense rounds, easily hit 6" target at 5yds & 10yds. feels great in the hands absolutely no recoil problems. I have it paired with a N82 tuckable holster BTW I highly reccomend this holster and company (AMERICAN MADE! in N.C.)Link Removedas already stated thanks for your review

Why a 380 when you can have more such as the 938 which is just slightly larger, a Kimber Solo, Kahr MK9/40 or an XDs 45 for that matter. By the way Colt is reviving their Mustang Pocketlite 380 if anyone is interested.
 
Had my P238 for years. Great gun. Carry cocked and locked IWB or in ankle holster. Not a fan of C&L with it in my front pocket though. Never a problem till this Weekend at the range. The last coil of the recoil spring broke off and the broken end took a little chunk out of the frame. I had to file it to get the slide to rack smooth. Still consider it a great gun, just a bad spring.

For me, when I was looking for a summer time carry (before I was an open carrier), I tried all kinds of sub compact/micro firearms. When it comes to a firearm this small, every 0.1" and 0.1 oz makes a big difference. I have yet to find a 9mm that would be comfortable for me. I am very interested in the p938 and XDs...but just reading the dimensions and weight I all ready have a feeling they won't work for me. Especially now that I open carry I plan on getting a full size .45

I was never a big fan of the 380 or 9 but now with advancements in bullet tech and power levels I am giving the 9 a second look as a backup to my other cc arms or main carry for certain occasions.

How do you feel about open carry? Aren't you worried someone may try and separate you from it at some point? I think CC is the way to go because criminals have no idea you are armed until it's too late.

Happy hunting on your 45 quest, there are so many choices

I am going to check out the 938 when one comes into my town...but so far anything over the p238, p380, bodyguard dimensions were to big to comfortably carry in a pocket.

I feel great about open carry. I'm not worried, I keep my awareness up. I have faith in the deterrence of open carry, the majority of criminals won't choose me to begin with. I never want to get in a gun fight, and I would rather stop their actions before its too late.

I do conceal my back up p238, because it allows me options open carry doesn't. Open carry is my priority though because in my mind it works better.

The full size .45 is either a FNP45T or Sig 1911. Just need the money.

Yeah that's my problem too. I am really liking the 938 and Kimber Solo but just need the money and life is good
