    This just seems like the perfect 9mm carry gun, those of you who have them how do you like it? I have only heard good things so far, there must be some bad news.

    Hopefully no bad news. I just recently picked up a P938 Nightmare. Melts in the pocket as well as the LCP in my opinion. Doesn't draw as easily due to the sights but it's still doable. I've cycled a few mags through it by hand and it feeds and ejects flawlessly. Will be hitting the range at first opportunity to see if it does as well on it's own.

    I love mine. I've got somewhere around 400 rounds through it with no function issues. Only problem is the grip screws like to work themselves loose. A little lock tight will cure that ailment.

    I bought my wife the Extreme. She loves it. Very mild recoil for a gun that size.
    Have about 1000 rounds thru with no issues. I may pick one up for myself down the road.

    A Glock 19 is a good choice. :cool:

    So you didn't like it enough to buy another?

    The trigger was just a bit stiff on mine, sold it & went back to 238.

    The 2 that I have handled lately have not had the best triggers, a bit gritty but they might just need a little cleaning.

    No. It is a money problem. I am planning on getting a G22.

    Yes it is. We have one now sitting in the safe. Too big for concealment at work. A G30 would be even better!

    What has this got to do with the Sig 938?

    Is it sill snappy? Haven't shot one. Wife got her CCW and can't
    Find a gun for her.

    Anything that is concealable she hates shooting. I can't get through her head it's not a range toy.

    She got through three rounds with my KT 380 she just hates little guns including a J-frame.

    I was hoping for a LCR for her.

    Not snappy at all. Very mild recoil.
    My wife does not revolvers either. They twist too much in her hands.

    Beats me. My P938 is in my pocket right now. At the moment it appears to be the best choice. Someone else suggested the G19.

    Depending on where you are located, they may be harder to find. I looked into the 938 for a minute when looking at a 238. They are roughly the same size and my intentions were to at least take a look at the 938 before making a decision. The dealers I checked with here though didn't have one and I checked with a few of the ranges that rent out guns and no one had it. I was also told that Sig just fired a bunch of their distributors so my wait time for one was going to be about 3 months if I was lucky. I didn't look to far into it because my preference had been the 238 for the past three months and the 938 was more of an afterthought because we have so much 9mm ammo.

    I'm pretty happy with my 238 so far, but I will only have had it for a week tomorrow.

    Love the looks and the idea of the P938. It's got a 1911ish flavor to it. I've got a Walther PPS in the mail but I'll be checking out the P938 this summer when demand lightens up a bit. i think there were one or two guys on youtube that weren't thrilled with there P938 but nowadays there isn't much of a sure thing when buying a pistol. Just have to bite the bullet and try it for yourself.

    Like one reviewer noted, I thought the polymer trigger was an interesting choice. Assuming the P938 functions well, the roughly $750 price tag is nice for a 1911 styled gun that is slim, has night sights and checkering on the front strap.

    Much better to shoot than the KT 380.I never liked shooting my KT 380 but think my P938 is fun to shoot.
