Same here. I can just about get a finger and a half on the grip of a 238. I'll pass and carry my S&W m36 if I need a small gun.

A 1911 is a 1911.
A 238 is not a 1911.

thank you dan. if you didnt say it i was definitely going to. i know people use 1911 as a style marker, but, there is an astronomical difference between a wildhog, or an officers carry, or a super carry, and a 1911. i got all excited when i saw the title. "oh yay! something i can contribute to!" then i got here...nope. it is wise to carry those short stubby things, its way easier to hide. i prefer to carry a full size over any carry special because id rather have control and firmness of recoil over a wild hand cannon. and ill put it the way a Sheriff said to me in a 7-11.

"In the day where a sidearm isnt complete without night sites, laser pointers, smart grips, trigger safetys and hi cap magazines, there's something to take serious about a man who carries a standard 1911." -i didnt see him behind me when i lifted my jacket to get my wallet.

I agree that some 1911 "variants" arent true 1911s but its rediculous to say that a 1911 is less of a 1911 because it has night sights.
