I'll see if I can rent a bersa thunder anywhere around here. She loved the feel of the sig 238, also. Thanks for the input.

I have a Sig P238. I knew I wanted that pistol above all the other .380's I tried the minute I held it. It felt so "right".

My wife has had a Sig P-238 for two years and loves it. Easy to handle, shoot and conceal.

I do love the looks of that pistol, but I don't see many and have never seen an affordable one.

Umm - the p238 does not have a grip safety as most 1911's do. It has one thumb safety.
Please enlighten me with how the 1911-style thumb safety on the p238 is anymore a "difficult to master safety manipulation" than the safety on any other sub-compact (?)
