So how do you like it? I took my wife out to buy an 238 and she went for the 232s.

funny i went to buy the 232 and came back with a 238.. love this weapon..so concealable...i have large hands and it fits in them sooooo comfortably. i own a sig 220 and a sig 229......this is my favorite....closest thing to it is a glock 36......i wear it in a belly-band...gotta shoot it next week but as it is a sig i am sure i will like it

Had mine for a while now and it is all I carry. It has replaced my Khar P380 even after I had NS put on it.

I'm also a fan of the P238. It has proper sights and a solid feel. Raises the bar vs. the usual 380 mouse gun.

dave - and it's happy with my reloads

I don't care for it at all, frankly.

The P232 has my vote as the best 380 on the market.

I like mine alot. Probably only put 100 rounds or so through her so far, but I do like it. And it's an easy carry piece.

I bought mine last month. Put a mixture of over 300 rounds through it with no gun related malfunctions.
The recoil spring was worn out so I got three from SIG.
Today and yesterday the gun is failing to extract and or eject quite often. Today I shot something over 100 rounds of mixed ammo to see if it might be a ammo problem. Still random failures to extract and eject.

I tightened up the extractor. Maybe tomorrow I'll see if that cures the problem.

Today I also shot my Micro Desert Eagle, with no problems. I guess I'll go back to the MDE for pocket carry until I figure out the P238's problem.

I like the P238. Very accurate and mild shooting. I forgot how bad the MDE kicks the hell out of my hand.

Today at 10 yards.

i don't want any ftf in a carry gun or a home defense gun. so i am going to go with a glock 36 with a belly band for concealed carry. never an imprint problem and oh so light. love my sig 220, my favorite weapon. a close second is my sig229

Yes. Really less than 300 rounds.

I shot it again today. Still have extraction/ejection problems.
I'll have to call SIG and see what they say.
Can't trust carrying it now.

I shot the Micro Desert Eagle yesterday and Kel Tec P3AT today. I guess I'll carry one of those until I get the bug worked out of the P238.

The 232 is great as long as you dont have to make a fast reload. the heel release is slow and cumbersome for those of us with big hands. I love my 238 and it runs like a top.
