Well I finally broke down and bought a Sig P238. I didn't want to. I was hoping to find something in 9mm that would work reliably, unlike my Kel Tec's (PF9 and P11) that get a failure to extract on average every three mags. Spent case doesn't come out. Got new gun and mags from Kel Tec, still sucks. ON the other hand, the little Sig met my expectations. I only fired 50 rounds through it, but, I only had one failure to extract. Note that I picked up the gun upstairs at the dealer and went downstairs to the range and fired it without any "fluff and buff".
I can't wait until my next trip to the range now that I've cleaned it. I got the Nitron with night sights for $500. Dissappointed it only had one mag. But the gun doesn't rattle like the door on my 1972 Ford mustag, which is what my Kel Tec PF9 reminds me off. The Sig is built well and it is still light. (NO safety problems like the recall.) I've talked with a few retired LEO's who put aside my concerns about the weaknesses of the 380. That is what they carry.
I bought some insurance by buying Buffalo Bore 380's. They hump. This little gun carries very well and I shot a 10 shot group about 2.5 inches at 21 feet. With the Kel Tec's I'm lucky to get 5 inches out of 10 rounds. Admittedly, 9mm is more to handle than the 380. Which is another plus for the 380. If you fire a canon and miss, what's the point. I don't mean to bash Kel Tec, have read many rave revues on them, but my experiences is far less than sterling. I did the trigger job described on the Kel Tec forum on the P11 hoping it would be better. It does lighten the trigger significantly but after shooting the short stroke on the Glock 36 I just can't get used to that long pull. I was a dedicated revolver guy, and thought I could shoot a double action only auto with the same long pull, but something is diff. (for background, I'm pretty good with a double action revolver.) Trigger job does nothing for jams. I keep telling Kel Tec it's the notch on the follower on the mags. They sent me a new one not much better than the original. (One guys 2 cents.)
