It was a ridiculous sight. I must admit, I wanted to fire one of these myself, and one of the ladies who bought one offered...but I never pressed the matter - I new I would hate it. We've sold hundreds of these at the gun shop, but it's only because the gun looks sweet, is a Smith and has a laser. We've got a 238 Nitron (basic) right now that I've got my eyes on I'm hoping to get soon.
I do hope that the Sig P238 that you are so hot for turns out to be a better performing firearm than the three that I have owned. I like the looks and feel of the P238 but the performance really sucks. Had numerous failure to feed, failure to eject causing jams plus all three would lock open with rounds still in the magazine and would batter the brass so bad that they could not be reloaded. But of course if you do not reload or know someone that does that would not be a concern.
Needless to say that the bodyguard 380 serial number EAT3xxx that I now have has been flawless with over 250 rounds thru it including reloads, all kinds of different brands of FMJ and over 100 rounds of various brands of JHP.
I will admit that the trigger pull on the P238 is better than the bodyguard but after practice the bodyguard trigger pull can be gotten used to. In a SHTF situation I doubt that a person would notice the DA trigger pull versus the SA pull of the P238.
