I carry Hornady Critical Defense in all my self defense guns.

You should. It's a very nice little firearm.

Add another to the "238 with Hornady" pile.

I load mine with the Hornady Zombie Max which I am almost positive is the same thing as the critical defense. One is red tip and the other is green tip. I guess the green makes it even more deadly to zombies?

I carry my I.O.Hellcat II .380, loaded with a Winchester PDX1 JHP in chamber, then alternate FMJ, JHP, FMJ... in the mag. I do this for a combination of "stopping power" and penetration.

Hey, guys, I had a vendor at a gun show tell me that both the Sig P238 and P290 had feed/reliability issues (He was a Sig dealer with both in stock, so no sales conflict.) so I was wondering if any actual users had problems. If you would, please post your round count and if any problems, either intermittent or ongoing. Thanks in advance.


Oh, and I stoke all my carry/home defense guns with Hornady Critical Duty.

My P238 has worked reliably from the day it came out of the box. Not one single issue with it using the included or extra Sig magazine. My daughter has one that has given her some trouble, but only with the included mag. It works flawlessly with my mags and her spare Sig mag. The round count is just over 500 in both.
