I have an LCP and a P-238. The Ruger is slightly more concealable, but the P-238 is much more fun to shoot. With the Ruger I find myself having to readjust my grip after every shot or two. The p-238 recoil is so low I rarely have to readjust during a magazine. The texture of the grips helps with this, too. All in all it comes back on target much faster than the Ruger.
The cons of the P-238 are less concealable but not impossible, weighs a bit more making ankle wear a little more uncomfortable, and the price of the spare mags.
The cons of the LCP are snappy recoil, less visible sights, and a less comfortable grip for my hands.
I'm not mentioning price because I consider either one to be a secondary self-defense weapon. Life is worth any price whether it's mine, or a loved one.
