To summarize what I'm hearing from the Glock-Talkers here is the Sig is the better shooter and the LCP is the better pocket carry gun.

If I was to holster carry it would be neither of these guns. My G27 would be my first choice. The G27 problem is being too thick for a pocket, especially if you add a pocket holster.

If I wanted a pocket gun it seems the Ruger LCP would win my purchase against the Sig 238. I do not like the LCP's trigger, but training and practice could help solve this issue.

Boot--that's my take as well. However, the p238 carries so well IWB that it is still worth considering. There are times when even a G26 is a little hard to conceal but the p238 isn't.

After owning both, I now carry a P238 all summer long. Now that the 938 is out, I'll be getting that when I can get the extreme local at a good price.

I liked the lcp for being a pocket pistol, extremely light weight and compact. Very easy to conceal. I didn't like the long heavy double action trigger pull, lack of sights, and harsh recoil. I never had one problem, no FTF, FTE, nothing. Ran flawless well over 1000 rounds that I had it. Plus at less than 300 bucks, it was definitely a nice fit for me at the time which was trading carry time with my G19RTF2.

I sold the LCP and recently picked up the desert P238. Talk about a night and day difference. Better trigger, better sights, very smooth action, more accurate (for me). I did have to send it back to sig right after I bought it due to very very erratic ejection. They paid, and also offered me 20% off any additional services. I upgraded to the ambi safety. The gun was back in my hands a week to the day that I sent it off. Works flawlessly now. Can't complain one bit.

I have just seen the P938 hit my stores locally. Its only in one store that I called around and it was pretty high priced for the base model in my opinion. So I'll be holding onto my 238 until I can find a model I like better at a more reasonable price. I'm more of a 9mm guy and since the 938 really isn't much bigger at all, I'm going to make the switch.

Good choice! I replaced my P3AT with a P238. Sights, trigger, recoil... hell, even looks are worlds better on the Sig. Will be trying out a 938 after they've been out a year or so.

Well....I'd love to post a pic of my new gun, but I have to wait up to 90 days for it to arrive. I'm left handed and there was no ambi versions in stock. So...I must wait. But no regrets.

i've shot both and own the 238, the 238 is a tad larger but superior in fit and finish...i can shoot it much faster than the lcp and stay on target...not to mention the sights on the 238 destroy the mockery of sights on the lcp...

shoot both and buy what feels best to you...

You have picked 2 fine, fine pistols here and can't go wrong! I would get the LCP. It's maybe a bit more dependable design and is smaller and lighter. I have nothing bad to say about the 238, but I love my 2 LCP's and would go that route if you are going for a solid deep concealment pistol!
