BTW, pocket pistols are rarely "fun" to shoot, that's what a "range" gun is for.
I don't know. I have heard about this endlessly. Last fall when I finally got my SIG P938, I was surprised at how nice it is to shoot. Granted, I have only put about a box through it, but my 1st impression was that I could shoot it quite a bit, no problem......

True but that is a little on the bigger side of what most consider to be a pocket pistol.

I'm pretty sure anyone who has shot a mid-size or smaller .40 s&w and the pocketable(barely) XDs would agree the little XD fires .45's a lot more comfortable then larger .40's.

Maybe, depends on the pocket. It goes into my Carhartt carpenter jeans fine. It is only SLIGHTLY bigger in 2 dimensions than the P238. I think the slight size trade-off is worth it to have a gun that is cool to shoot, don't you?

I agree. I would love to have one but they are too expensive for me. I just bought a Kel-Tec PF9. I am hoping that it is small enough to fit in my jeans pocket too.
