How's this for shot placement with my Sig P238? This is the first time I shot it.

Nicely done... hold the target up against your chest, and tell me which hole you want to be shot through....

Being as I'm retired, you can pretty much suit yourself on scheduling.

This was shot at 7 yards as the Sig P238 is not really a range pistol but a self defense pistol so I shot at a "self defense" distance.

Okay. I'm interested in coming out, now. Hmmm.......it's almost a 5 hour drive.

I liked shooting the .380's much better. I shot a Bersa thunder and I didn't like the trigger so much. I didn't like that the LCP didn't have a safety and it was almost too light and the trigger was long, which really doesn't bother me........until I shot the Sig P238. I like the Sig P238 because I liked the feel of the gun......small but with a little weight on it. I think it shoots beautifully, I like the trigger.......it is sweet......and I liked that it had a safety and the night sights are wonderful.

But, I could shoot a 9mm for much less.

I think what it boils down to is I need to buy a new gun.

And thank you everyone for answering this question for me.........for the 5th time, at least. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
I wasn't a fan of the LC9 either Winds, I was thinking about buying a 238 then I found out about this, http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductDetails/p938-rosewood.aspx so now I'm waiting, not very patiently for someone to get one in so I can buy it. In case you ever decide you want a small 9, I've been told it's almost the same size as your 238.

Okay, I think I made the right choice for myself with the .380. And why should I buy a 9 mm when my daughter's boyfriend just bought one. I'll shoot his. LOL
I think my next purchase will be the Henry Lever Repeater. I'm not in such a big hurry to get a 9 mm. now. Time to broaden my horizons with a long gun. I looked at the Henry and it fit me pretty well considering how short I am. Most rifles are waaay to long for me.

Yeah, I know. I think it's a case of so many guns, so little money. I want and will eventually get an SKS but it's more of a personal collectors thing for me. I shot one and I did pretty well on it but the one I shot had a wooden stock (which is what I want) and it was pretty darned heavy for me. I have a special place in my heart for Vietnam veterans and that whole era and the SKS is more of a memorial sort of thing I probably wouldn't shoot very often.

On the other hand......I'll be shooting the heck out of the Henry. My next purchase will be the Henry and I think sooner rather than later. I was looking for a "real" Vietnam era SKS but after PM'ing several very smart and helpful members here on FTF, I realized I could probably never find or afford a REAL Vietnam era SKS. So, the next best thing is to get one that is post Vietnam era. There is one at the gun shop that I stare at whenever I go there but since I can't afford two guns at once I would rather buy the one I'm actually going to shoot. The SKS and the Henry were about equal in price.

Would it be sacrilegious to get an SKS with a wooden stock to have as a collectors item then sand that stock down and stain it pink. Yes, why yes, it would and I would never do that. But........it's a thought.

Somebody here in Tucson is selling a "bring-back" SKS... I think there asking $450 for it

Ever try a Marlin 39A? Thats the .22 Lever gun I want
