New SIG
 
Thanks to JTJ, Winds and others I bought a new SIG P238!!! I've always been a SIG fan...This is the bare bones model. I'll eventually jazz it up with some aluminum grips and Mepros. I can't wait to take it on a test run. Sure is a cute little guy :) Here's some pics with it's big brother, my P229 SCT. Which I've decided to keep, I had considered selling it but it's just to nice of gun.

Congrats on the new gun. I have one also and I love it.

You are going to love that P238. It doesn't matter if it's bare bones or all fancied up. Either way, they are a sweet little pistol.

Sweet gun for sure. I Dang near decided on picking up a 938 and a 238 before I realized I'd be wasting my money on both. Had I been starting from scratch they'd both be mine, but those spots are already taken.

My Firestar m43. It's only half an inch longer. It is twice the weight, which is why I almost did it, but just cannot justify an extra 700 creating the redundancy just for a lighter gun. I'm still on the fence, I do like the idea of heavier gun for shooting but not for carrying. So we'll see, may still jump on one.

I just looked it up. Very nice looking little pistol. I bet it would be a good seller with CC popularity if it were still produced.

If you don't mind a .380 the P238 can be had for $550....sell the Star for a couple of hundred and your left with a manageble balance.

I had a Feg P63 in 9x18, it was twice the weight of my Sig P230 and was not that pleasant to shoot. Gave it to my brother who was looking for something smaller and was not concerned about weight. You can say that you have something similar, but nothing shoots and carries like a Sig. JMHO. Even their striker fire pistols are very nice. Sonic, congrats!

I'm not getting rid of my Stars ever, just can't. I know I should, parts getting hard to find and eventually gone, but they just suit me perfectly. I can't let them go. It's not the money, I can sort both sigs without selling anything, it's about what they would be and what I've already got. Thanks for trying tho m'friend!

Mine is great to shoot, heavy, but I like that. Makes follow up shots just fall into place. I've anyways like FEG.
