    In principle, principle and practice are the same, but in practice, they're not.

    Avoid carrying a Cocked pistol, period! Get a IWB or OWB holster.

    Here is one of my favorites from Beer Creek Holsters:

I know the BG 380 is pretty small and light but I would like input from anyone who has ever pocket carried a Sig P238. Is the P238 too heavy or bulky? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I personally would not feel comfortable pocket carrying a SA pistol with a safety in my pocket.

    I carry mine every day using one of two holsters for pocket carry.

    I pocket carried my wife's P238 frequently in a good nylon holster that covered the safety. Most frequently, I carried it in a lower pocket on cargo pants/shorts. It also fit nicely in my dress chinos. I also carried it IWB in an Uncle Mike's nylon with belt hook. Very comfortable carry...

    The P238 requires an incredible level of stupidity to have an AD with. The gun can be loaded, unloaded, and cleared with the safety on. Cock the hammer, put the safety on, and you can do the entire manual of arms. It is one of the features that sold me on the gun for my wife.

    Couldn't agree more Fitch; carry mine in several positions, depending on dress, with no worries!

    I do once in a while in its Remora but I rarely wear anything with pockets big enough.

    Pocket Carry a Sig P238?

    The P238 is a fine gun and easy to conceal. I pocket carry most of the time. Here are some pictures of my Guru Dave holster with a fake zipper top.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1360420210.832450.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1360420228.598009.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1360420255.414626.jpg
    I feel like a BG encounter will most likely be one wanting my billfold with credit cards and money so he probably won't think too much about me reaching in my hip pocket to give it to him;)

    Would you post the web site where we can order a holster like your Guru Dave for the P238. Thanks,
