    Thank you folks for the warm welcome.

    Have you thought any about getting a compact or sub-compact conversion kit for your Sig 250? I had the 250SC and thought it had great ergonomics, easy to carry, high capacity for its size, and pretty good overall if you didn't mind the double action only trigger. Mine had a great double action trigger, and this wasn't an issue with me.

    I currently have both a Kimber Ultra Carry II and a Kimber Micro, both of which have seen very limited use. I enjoy shooting the Micro very much, as for its diminutive size it is very accurate and easy to shoot. I have several .380s and only carry one when I am carrying a BUG or dressing very light. I prefer a heavier caliber as a general rule. Without knowing anything more about you, I hesitate to recommend the Ultra Carry. Three inch barreled 1911 .45s are somewhat more difficult to shoot than their larger brethren, and some find them persnickety. My Ultra shoots well, has not given me one spec of trouble, and is a pleasure to carry; it's just not my first choice for EDC with its limited magazine capactity, so it usually stays in the safe. I cannot comment on the 938, having never shot nor carried one.
    I want to say thank you for a good description.

    I did consider a conversion kit for my P250 but I really don't like the double trigger on it and for the price id rather just buy another gun.

    I'm only a ~30" waist so I'm pretty limited without printing(i printed a little bit with the ultra II). I went and looked at guns again today and I pinched my finger pretty bad with the p938 safety. The lady helping me showed me the Colt mustang .380($599) and the kimber micro raptor($749). so its making it a very hard challenge. I like the ultra II but for when Ill be carrying it I have concerns it'll be to big.

    I like the M&P series, my problem with them is I'm not super accurate with them for some reason.

Depending on your clothing style you shouldn't have a problem finding a carry position that will conceal even a full sized gun with the proper holster.....for the most part. Right now my favorite sidearm is a fat P229 and I have no problem concealing that with MY wardrobe. I carry OC almost exclusively, but can and do flip my shirt over it when need be. When I do plan to carry concealed it's usually with an 1911 Officer size in an AIWB holster. It's not a little gun, but the way I carry means complete concealment. Very rarely I may pocket carry a P938 if the situation calls for it. YMMV of course.
    No matter which weapon I go with Ill holster it(not pocket) with me being so thin is the issue. I would prefer it to be concealed every time I carry it.

    Hi nemosEVO! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. Congrats on deciding to learn more about defensive carry and firearms and making the decision to protect yourself and your loved ones.

    I'm glad you're here.

    If you can get over any hangups you may have with appendix carry, it's a great way to conceal for skinny folk. I honestly think it's probably one of the best positions for skinny people, especially if you have any muscles in your chest. Unless of course you wear form fitting shirts like Under Armour and their like.

    No form fitting shirts. :embarrassed: To start I wasn't going to appendix carry just from slight concerns with where it aims.

    That's the psychological issue us men have. A lot will say because it points at your femoral, but usually the true reason is because it points in the general direction of your man bits. I haven't heard of anyone shooting themselves from appendix carry while using a holster. If you aren't comfortable and confident carrying that way though, don't do it. It took me a couple are before I started to appendix carry and now if I carry concealed, that's how I do it. Too many benefits of appendix outweigh the possible, but highly unlikely negative.

    So I ended up picking up a colt pocketlite tonight. Now I need to find a holster.
