I have been trying to get the Sig P238 to run consistently so as to feel comfortable pocket carrying. Yet, I have a Rohrbaugh R9 that never misses a beat. I look at the size of each and I ask why would I want to carry the Sig. I like the little Sig, just can't get it to fire consistently with most any ammo without FTE, usually on rd 6. Sig is sending a new recoil spring to correct the problem. We shall see. So, at this point it seems a no brainer to get a sure 7 rds of 9mm vs. a maybe 6 rds of .380.

I fought a slightly similar battle recently. After I got burned on a particular .380, I decided that I just couldn't really be comfortable carrying one, anyway, so I got a Kahr PM9.

Um..., carry the one that works?
If you get the Sig going, then carry them both

Carry the R9 now. When the Sig is up and running, throw it in the other pocket :-)

This is a NO Brainer! but first you have to get a new holster for one of them.... God and Levis gave you 2 pockets....
I would say always carry a reliable handgun that is adequately powerful and one that you can shoot accurately. Even if both pistols are running smoothly though, the 9mm would get the nod over the .380 acp every time. While the .380 is a good self defense round, the 9mm is truly superior to it when choosing one or the other. That is why I choose to carry a Kahr CW9 9mm over any of the small .380s available today.
God bless our troops!
These folks are a real joy to deal with. Very friendly, and they are dedicated to giving great customer service. Nice leather design that works very well for drawing from a pocket.
Even though they had never made this holster for the Kahr PM9 with the Crimson Trace LaserGuard installed on it before, they still managed to get the holster to me in two weeks, despite it being a custom order. I was literally the first person to get this holster model for my gun configuration. They have since added support for the CT LaserGuard to most of their holsters, for quite a few different guns.
I'm actually thinking of the Rourbaough 9 for my next toy. I read the article in "The American Rifleman" that compared the semi-compacts and the Rourbaugh was the only one that was flawless in all the test firing, out of the box, with any type of ammo. The only drawback is the price.
