First, thanks to everyone go took the time.
I am getting some great ideas. Some of them are what I have been researching, and some are new to me. I'll give a couple a try and let you guys know how they work out. I may start with the SHTF ACE. Again, thanks to all.
I have the Sig P938, slightly bigger than your P238 and I just started using the SmartCarry. Very comfortable and totally conceals, also easy to draw. I wear it with jeans, khakis, and sweat pants at the gym.
So, I purchased the SHTF ACE holster. First, let me say that it was delivered about a week earlier than I was told, which is awesome. The clips on this thing seem incredibly strong. I wore it around the house a little bit tonight to begin the "break-in" of the leather. The fit and retention is very nice while wearing the holster (as it should be, according to the enclosed paperwork). So far, this holster meets or exceeds my expectations in every department. The only area still in question is the comfort in the heat of a Texas summer. We shall see.
The thing that impresses me most is just how concealed this really makes the P238. With most holsters I've used the small of my back was the only place I could carry without the constant worry of printing. I wore this at the 4 o'clock position with about a 25-30 degree forward cant under a form-fitted shirt. Nothing. No printing at all. The weapon rides high enough that it is easily accessible on a very natural draw for me. All in all, I am very pleased with this holster. I'll try to post a follow-up once the weather warms and the leather is broken in.
Again, thanks to all for the advice and insight!
