    Would you mind explanding on why you like the LCP better for pocket carry? I'm drawn to the p238 because of its looks but also because it has real sights and appears to be a better made firearm.

    That and the fact that the Gov'y .380 is a larger, heavier, pistol to start with, especially if it is of the steel frame variety.

    An old Texas Ranger was asked by someone," I see you carry your .45 cocked. Isn't that dangerous?" He replied, "Gosh, I sure hope so." 'Nuff said.
