The one thing I never see mentioned is that this gun is the only .380, that I know of, that isn't a blowback design.
It's a superb .380. No comparison to others relative to recoil and follow up.
I am new to CC and am "easing into it" This little pistol has been ultra reliable with no failures of any kind. Its small enough that I carry it in my back pocket most of the time. I have put about 500 rounds thru it. All Winchester whitebox (target wadcutters) and Speer Gold Dot which have a very similar profile. No issues. FUN to train with. I added the Crimson Trace laser because I am older and my eyes suck. I also carry with the extended 7 round mag and keep another in my offhand pocket. Makes for a little better grip and one more round. I carry condition 3 currently. I love the way this pistol handles, shoots and carries. So far its been a perfect "1st carry gun" for me.
I like the feel of the 938 but upon ready up on it I found a lot of failures reported on the 938. However in this thread I didn't hear of any issues.
Has Sig worked the bugs out of the 938.
