    Pocket .357s can be a handful (recoil-wise). You may be an experienced owner, but practicing with a small magnum would not be something I would want to do.
    I don't carry to deter crime. I carry to defend myself!

    A Sig P938 9mm is only slightly larger. I carry one as a pocket BUG.

    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    Don't scratch. It's like poison ivy. The more you scratch the more itches you get.

    Sigs are heavy. I really enjoy my S&W model 60-14 21 oz SS 5 round .357 mag snub.
    38spl for the range, mostly.

    Its all personal pref.

    Besides, a 290RS is .5 of an oz lighter and the Colt Pocket Nine (if you can find one) is 6 ozs lighter with 7 rounds of 9mm.

    Pocket pistols are great primary carry in warm weather and a good back up in the cold weather.

    I have a light weight snub nose in 357. Good shooter, very accurate and painful. Go with the P238 and good luck.

    No, that was for that burning feeling while peeing.

    Agree. The 938 is the way to go for an almost ideal (for me) pocket pistol.

    I totally read the thread title as "I've got an inch". I am relieved.
