Hi, I Am thinking about the sig p238. I have handled both the 232 and 238; I love the small size and robust construction of the 238,not much bigger heavier or wider than my Ruger LCP. I would likely carry in an inside the waistband holster.I like the feel of the 232 also, beautiful "classic" looking pistol, but not as small or as light as the 238. The 238 being a newer model, had some function issues at its introduction.The 232 being around much longer appears not to have any issues. Is the 238 reliable in its current production? Either would work for holster carry, I like the smaller one, but dont want to sacrifice reliability. My fall winter CCW is a G32, or a Springfield Armory 1911. I had a G27 which was more concealable than either the G32 or 1911 but are to big for work in the summer.( I work in an office in an urban environment) I need a highly concealable gun, so I can carry year round, every day w/o any one knowing I am carrying. The LCP fills the bill, but it is lightly built, and the "sights" are wanting. I practice incessantly so I want a robust gun, and accept the added weight. This would be my first SIG, long time Glock owner/enthusiast/die hard fan, please dont tell Gaston thanks for any info and guidance here Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
