BTW, the SIG P239 is a 9 shot (8+1) medium frame DA 9MM. very similar to the P225. Available in 9MM or .40.

Found a used one a LGS couple weeks ago. If I was in buying mode, I would have been very tempted to pick it up. That is one very nice gun.

Pappajim is correct. A house of worship is a #1 soft target. Many churches in our area, Lowcountry of SC, have church security teams, which our church has and I am a member of. All permitted, in writing, by our Pastor. We are known to each other and train as a team, so if anything should happen, we know the good guys from the bad. And how to eliminate any threat. Each team member carries anything from a full size 1911 to my personal favorite TCP738.

It seems the .380 pistols are designed

primarily for CC. Few other calibers can

make this claim.

I prefer the CC 22LR merely because I

find the .380 ammo too easy to mix up with

9mm Luger. For me, it avoids confusion.

But if you are serious about a compact CC,

(I'm not.) the .380 may be for you.

In the past few years if I have pants on, A Ruger lcp is in one of the pockets. A lot of people knock the cartridge but it has been doing its job for over 100 years. Yes I prefer 9mm or up if I can conceal it comfortably but sometimes its so hot that the lcp is all I can manage. YMMV.

I would rather have a 380 in my pocket than a 45 acp in the safe. Compared to the P-3at or the lcp most 9mm pistols are huge. The nano weighs 19 ounces. My full bore ruger p95 weigh 23 ounces. The kel tec p3at weighs 8 ounces. the lcp weighs under 10 ounces. Anyone that says the 9mm is only slightly larger is misinformed. how is 2.5 times bigger "slightly"?

????? Are you serious?????? a 9mm has nearly DOUBLE the energy level of a .380! I think you need to check your facts
