    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!

    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...

    WHEN it dies you replace the battery. I have 7 years on my CT battery in my 649 and it is still strong.

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

    be even better if they offered a model without a laser at a cheaper price point.
