    anyone carrying sig p238

    did a search on this, sig p238 comes up with nothing?!?

    anyway, really considering this, I have had good luck with sigs.

    but i don't like that it is SA only, and kind of worried carrying it with hammer back in pocket. I am assuming if hammer not back, you can pull hammer back with your finger prior to shooting to cock it?

    would like to hear anyone's experiences, from what I have read, everyone who has shot one likes the feel, etc. but it is the carrying part that I am questioning. thanks.

    I have one and love it. I carry it sometimes as a primary if I need a small gun, but also carry it as a BUG. Which ever, I always carry in Condition 1 (Chambered round, hammer back, thumb safety on ... As I would with any 1911). Yes you can cock the hammer with your thumb to fire, I personally would not carry a weapon like this. If my life depends on it, I don't want to have to think about cocking the gun to fire.

    They make pocket holsters that cover the thumb safety if pocket carry is what your looking for.

    The gun is a joy to shoot, very accurate ... Sights are great (night sights are bright), very clean trigger, and one of the easiest slides to rack

    All in all I love mine!

    Yep what they said. Great little gun get a good holster and you will have no worries with it.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    What is this? I've seen more 238 threads in the last couple days....

    Must be global warming or some other deal. I just ordered a 238 about seven hours ago.

    To the OP: Get one. Now. I shot one this afternoon, ran to the shop, and changed my order from a Kahr p380 to a SIG p238. What a darling. Considering the fact that I do love my SIGs above all others, I reckon it was heresy that I didn't order the 238 to begin with. After shooting it, I insisted on carrying it cocked and locked in the jeans pocket (now THAT was creepy!) to the shop to change orders. Yeah, there was a pocket holster. Carried well and didn't geld me.

    The P238 comes with a single clip and a plastic holster. i have the laser model. the plastic holster will not work so I use a Remora 2A holster for IWB and pocket carry. I have had some problems with hollow point ammo diving into the bullet ramp(Winchester and Horady) but Remington FMJ are fine so that's what I carry. I also purchased a Badger deep conceal shoulder holster that wears under a normal shirt but haven't tried it yet. I will modify a couple shirts with 'velcro buttons'.

    I carry one in my right front pocket, cocked and locked. It is a great gun; very reliable. I highly recommend it.

    I am picking mine up this week, along with a Sig P220. I enjoyed shooting the gun as a rental. For the size, it's the best gun to shoot. Definitely better than the 3AT or LCP.

    I have a Nemesis pocket holster and Blackhawk Pocket holster that will keep the trigger guard protected.

    Had one for the Mrs. but she never carried it. I occasionally pocket carried it. Liked it, but traded it for a 6" GP100 that I'll never pocket carry. Love the revolver even more!

    I have one and love it. The safety is great and carrying condition 1 should be no problem. Just get a good holster.

    I just got mine. It takes a lot of pressure to click the safety.

    I would not worry carrying in Condition 1.

    My wife has one. I carry it when we go to social events and she doesn't carry. I'm a huge fan of the gun. It's a subcompact that shoots like a bigger gun.

    There have been a bunch of threads on the P238 over the last few months. I started one myself when my wife bought hers. I'm astonished the search didn't find them.

    My wife has one. We both really like the gun. It eats everything we feed it including my reloads. Very pleasant to shoot. We carry it cocked and locked loaded with the Hornady Critical Defense ammo which it shoots and feeds flawlessly.

    I did a search with just "P238" no quotes, found over a hundred hits. There have been a whole lot of threads on the gun lately.
