I live in SC, and have a couple of .40's - A Taurus PT-940 and a Stoeger 8040 Cougar, plus some .45's. The Cougar is my gun of choice whenever I can wear enough clothes to keep it from printing. It is 5.5 inches tall, and the hard part about concealing it is that if I wear a shirt that is not really loose, the butt sticks out and "prints". The PT-940 is only 5 inches high, and is much easier to conceal, but the PT-940's are pretty hard to find. I think Stoegar has a "compact" version of the Cougar, which might work well for you.

An lgs had a 938 for about 2 days. I would like to shoot one before I jumped. I really like my 238.

It appears that the only difference between the size of the two Sigs is the 9mm P938 is 4 tenths of an inch longer, otherwise the dimensions are the same as the P238. My .380 P238 is a HD model, which weighs 20 ounces; the standard P938 weighs in at 16 ounces, so going from 380 to 9mm you know there will be more felt recoil. I love my 238 and I don't have a problem with the .380 ballistics, but the 9mm would give you more bullet choices. Since Sig says there will be 5 different models I suspect a P938 HD model will be coming out, which should be more pleasant to shoot even if it is 4 ounces heaver. At the present a P238 is $479 at Academy, which is about $200 less than what a P938 is going for.

I think you can get these guns in .40 too.

I'd suggest you look at the S&W M&P 9c or shield.

Both excellent guns.

Here's my 9c

New cc piece - General Handgun Discussion

Very small and light for a 12+1 gun in 9mm -

I like the external safety on a "striker" fired concealed carry gun.

Wonderful shooting gun.

I have the M&P 40c as a CC gun (mine does not have the thumb safety). It shoots well and has never failed to work regardless of what it's being fed. Plus I really like the ergo's of the M&P over the XD. The M&P just fits my hand so much better. With the flat bottom mag it conceals well in an IWB holster and fairly well OWB. Having 10 rounds of Gold Dots with me is a comforting feeling.

No question the XD is a fine firearm, but I prefer the M&P.

The XDM & M&P are more in a compact category like the smaller Glocks. The Sig P238 & P938 are much lighter and smaller. When it comes to concealed carry a one inch difference in height and length is a big difference.

Hey, just get one of everything, and two or three of the really good ones.
It'll really help the economy, too.
