Mas,
I am interested in the Sig P238 as my primary carry gun.My question is do you feel that the .380 is "enough" for a primary gun? I currently carry either a full size 1911 or my S&W 13-3.Looking to downsize to something that is easier to carry and conceal.However, I don't want to be undergunned either.
Thanks,
3rdgen40

Going from full size .45 or Model 13 .357 Mag down to .380 is your option, of course, but from this end it looks like a precipitous plunge. Might want to consider something in a slim, light 9mm Parabellum as an intermediate step.

Just sayin',

I was very much impressed with the CW9 I tested. Would have bought it if I didn't already have a PM9.

best,
Mas
