Found my next gun purchase....
I am a Sig fan and wanted a P238, however, with the negitive reports, I have cooled off on that buy.

As a big fan of Sigs....that looks like a pretty cool little pistol. If it works well, and the price stays competitive, I think it would make an excellent alternative to the P238.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

If it had ambi controls I would've called it the perfect looking pocket pistol.

That thing is pretty sweet looking. The built-in laser is a nice touch.
I'm still getting the Sig though!

what negative reports on the sig 238? The body guard does look nice, is it available yet?

Nice looking little piece.

I have a P238, and have been happy from the first round I put through it... it runs like a dream... for a small gun.Carry IWB & OWB, don't pocket carry it though.
Just a thought on the S & W... they are fine pistols, though what will you do if/when the laser dies? then you have to send it off to S & W...
Like I said...just a thought...

I would imagine that it is replaceable without the help of a gunsmith but I've been wrong before.
