    Sig P238 or Kahr P380.....Opinions Plz

    I'm about to be in position to make another gun purchase and this time want it to be a genuine pocket rocket. I'm no longer considering the LCP or P3AT. I've narrowed it down to the Sig and the Kahr. Opinions plz?

    Single action + safety ok for you? That's the SIG.

    wjjmlg....how does the Kahr recoil compare to the LCP? I've shot the LCP and it's a handful. I know that some of that is due to its small size, but........?

    Personally, I don't like the SA trigger and manual safety for a carry gun, especially a pocket gun. Just two more things that can go wrong when you want and need all the edge you can get. I'd go for the Kahr.

    Can a handgun be "cute"?

    Yes a handgun can be cute! Atleast that's what I thought. I have a Colt Pocketlite. The mini mini me of 1911's

    I would go with the P238, I have heard it's a copy of the Pocketlite.

    The P238 feels awesome in the hand. It is very well built and seems to be typical Sig quality. The p380 is also very well built, and feels very good in the hand. I do like them both du to the fact that they have real sights and can be changed out. However while it is probably perfectly safe with a good pocket holster...I dont wanna SAO cocked and locked in my pocket. As a very concealable belt gun, the P238 woul be my choice, but I ten to thin I woul go with the p380 for a hideout pocket gun.

    since I don't pocket carry, either the Kahr or the Sig would be welcome in my waistband. I really like the look of the P238 though as I have lusted for a Colt Mustang for many, many years. I would want different grips than originally offered on the P238 though.

    The P238 is what I would buy but I would hold off on your purchase for a couple of weeks. 238s are flying off the shelves and Sig is still having problems. They usually answer emails within a day but I emailed them thursday night and haven't heard back yet. I bet they're swamped. I have another thread that I will update once they get back to me and I get it sent in.

    For me it would be the Kahr. Got to play with a P380 for the first time this weekend and it is awesome. Not a big fan of a SA gun for pocket carry either...
