    I just bought a new p238 and all I can say is wow. I love this thing. Put 100 rounds through it without a problem. My Kel Tec P3AT jammed on my first range trip and has never been fully reliable since. This p238 shoots like a full size gun. The sights are the best I've seen on a gun this size and that single action trigger is sweet. None of the flinch I experienced with the p3at.

    This is my first Sig. Can any Sig owners tell me what the best Sig forums are?

    Sweet ain't it? Puts other pocket .380s to shame. I would only sell mine if I tested a P938 and decided I liked it enough to part with my 238.

    Of course, nothings perfect. I wish that trigger wasn't plastic and Sig gave me more than one mag.

    Can't help ya with the Sig forum, sorry.

    My wife has one for her CC gun. Very impressed with the quality and reliability. I had actually tried to steer her away from a .380 pocket pistol and toward a .38 snub as she is not really a gun person (and due to experiences of mine with unreliable small .380 autos), but after renting one she decided she really liked the 238 (she hated the Ruger LCP we also rented) and we went ahead and got one. Very reliable, accurate, and a good-looking gun as well.

    Take a dremel tool and polish the inside of the P3AT and it'll perform alot better. Congrats on the new gun in any case.

    It's great for reading but can't contribute. You register and then wait for approval. I registered three times. I've been waiting for four years now. I've even sent follow up emails. They were Ignored.

    That's odd; I got registered the first time. Try a different user name; perhaps it is too similar to someone else. I'd try to register again, because there is alot of good info for Sig owners.

    Really love my SIG P-238. Great night sights, optional laser, decent SA trigger, and easy to use and operate.

    Don't bother with the 10 cent fluff and buff on the Kel-tec. If it is giving you problems get rid of it. I had a P3AT that was giving me issues and sold it for something better. I have fired a P238 and the only thing I don't like about it is the price. Glad you like it.

    The P238 simply puts all the other pocket 380 pistols to shame.

    My son purchased a P938 last week and it shoots great but has significantly more felt recoil than the P238.

    I have a P238 and love it. Great little gun for pocket carry. Don't carry my LCP anymore.

    Magazines for the Colt Mustang work in a P238. :)

    As far as price, if you are near an Academy Sports store, they have an Academy model for just over $500 after tax. That's where I bought mine. From what I've seen, it's the exact same gun as what everyone else sells, just at a discounted price.

    I've made and sold over 450 triggers made by us of 416 stainless. Right now we are out, awaiting a slot in our schedule to start another run, we will make at minimum 1000 triggers soon. They also fit in the P938.

    Is there a breakage problem I am not aware of?

    I haven't heard of a single trigger break on a P238.

    great buy how does it carry compared to the keltec?

    I carried a P32 and then a P3AT from the very beginning and now carry my P238 in a De Santis Super Fly pocket holster and for me the P238 doesn't feel much different in the pocket.
