Paperpuncher, I really like the Altamont grips on your wife's p238! Been looking at various vendors and would like to buy a set for my own. My question...are they wider that the stock Sig set?

imo the P238 is the best 380 on the market sir. I bought one about a year ago to wear in my workout clothes. It is very accurate due to the tightness and weight of the slide. My only reccomendation is to test ammo types and keep it perfectly cleana nd lubricated at all times. Mine only likes Gold Dots. I noticed if I don't clean it after every session at the range, it will have cycle issues occassionally, which never has happened when cleaned between use. Great gun.

Agree big time- Took my wife some time to adjust to her SR9C after her little 32 but now she wont even let me shoot it

Of the pocket .380s out there the Sig 238 is one of the most shootable ones I've ever tried. Good trigger, useable sights, comfortable grip. What's not to like, except that it's heavier than an LCP. But I think that extra weight makes it more pleasant to shoot.

Great, little .380. My buddy has one and his wife claimed it, so he had to go buy another. They feed Gold-dots pretty well.

My wife likes her P238. She has arthritis in her hands, plus three fingers were cut off one hand in an accident & even though they were sewn back on & seem to work okay, she has very little gripping strength with them. She could operate her Bersa Thunder .380 but it was a real struggle. She has no problem with the Sig.

It's still new with only about 100 rounds through it, but she likes shooting it & has good accuracy even though she is a novice shooter. I've shot about two mag loads though it & have added one to my wish list.
