Sig P238. I've put about 150 rounds through one. The wife groups in the 8 ring at 5 yards with it, not bad for a pocket pistol.

She likes it well enough that I just ordered this one for her as an anniversary present. She doesn't know its coming

Last time I bought her a firearm present was Xmas some years ago, a Weatherby Orion in 20 ga.

How long were you told the wait would be?

I ordered the Lady model in late January with an expected wait time of 2-3 weeks.

12 1/2 weeks later it finally came in. A couple of weeks before it finally arrived my store called the Sig factory and they said that model was running 6 -9 months behind at the present time.

Good luck. Hope it turns out better for you.

Superb eye candy, 'biker! Hope she likes it. I've never handled a P238; from the pic, the sights look excellent, much better than my APK.

For a gun in that size range, the sights are very nice. They are a tritium three-dot display and Sig calls them SIGLITE night sights.

I carry the lcp, love it for the price. Ive put a few hundred rounds throw it wit no problem. But I would for sure put a crimson on it, now if u got a lil extra chedder to burn i'd get the sig p238. my wife has one, its so much better to shoot. Trigger is much more crisp n fits better in ur hand once u put the extended mag on it.

For price,durability,shoot-ability,reliability and general value added you might be hard put to beat the Bersa Thunders.

If you want a gun for concealment,Keltec and Ruger both have a lot to offer but you might want to shoot before you buy,EVEN in 380 some people find the recoil of the ultra-lite polymer guns unpleasant.They're not likely to be your favorite range gun unless you're a pain pig like me.(my first polymer gun was and still is a Keltec P-40,probably still one of the lightest ever in made 40/S&W-357/SIG)

I have the very same Sig P238 Lady model. It shoots wonderfully, fits my hand perfectly, is dependable, has a great trigger, wonderful sig night sights and I am pretty good at shooting it, if I may say so myself. Check out the targets. This is the first time I shot this gun. The first 40 rounds.

I have a Hi Point .380 CF, and she shoots just fine.
