Default S&W CS9 vs Sig P238!

OK, just a few questions concerning these two firearms, not considering the cartridge!

When looking for a really small CCW firearm, one to carry when you need real ability for the gun to vanish, which one would you pick considering: 1. Conceal-ability; 2. Long term carry; 3. Shoot-ability (recoil, grip, etc.); 4. Control-ability (hitting what you need to, double-tap, etc.); 5. Quality; 6. Reliability.

Yes, I know all the differences between .380 vs 9mm. But, sometimes, you simply must go with a caliber that's not the most optimal. A hit with a .22lr is better than a rock! If I could, I'd carry my 25-06, or one of my shotguns, and not worry about what I'm shooting at. But................! Hence my desire to not discuss the caliber aspect of the equation.

Thanks for your inputs!

Take Care, God Bless, And WATCH Your Back

My personal choice would be the CS9 for the simple fact that I like it's feel. As far as the rest of the items that are taken into consideration when picking one of these pistols I think they are both really close in the respective categories.

I have a sig p238 and i love it. I like the feel of an all metal gun vs polymer. The p238 is small, very easy to conceal but is also big enough to get a firm grip on the gun. As far as reliability both guns are equal. I like the fact that the p238 has fiber optic and night sights. Shooting is a blast, follow up shots are quick and on target. If you have a change to rent these guns from your local range i would recommend doing so before you just decide on one.
