I had a P3AT for years and decided to get a Sig P238. I got to say I am very impressed with the Sig. It's kind of like comparing ice cream to s#%t. If you are going to buy a 380 you really need to shoot a Sig P238 before you decide.

Look on the inter webs for a deal on a SIG 238, they are pricey.

Here's one. http://m.gunbroker.com/Item/329787992

Reputable seller as well. I've purchased a few SIGs from them.

I don't hear many people talking about the Sig P232. Nice-looking pistol, but i have no idea if it is a good pistol.

Can't imagine it being a bad pistol. 238 has a similar feel to a 1911. 232 is styled kind of like a ppk.

One thing I can recommend is to run at least 250 rounds through your pocket pistol before you put it in your pocket and start carrying it. Pocket pistols have the highest come back rate of any gun in any manufacturers line up.

After you run 250 rounds through it you know it will go bang. Once you start carrying a pocket pistol you will not shoot it often. We all only have so much range time, even those of us that are lucky enough to be able to shoot on our own property.

If your OK w condition one in your pocket, SIG is great choice but why not go w the original - Colt Mustang ?

I went w Ruger LCP - very reliable & accurate. pleasure to carry but not to shoot.

Just piced up a new Ruger LC380 today for the wife. She handled several different versions of small 9 and 380 and settled on the Ruger. Seems like a nice little pistol and is built on the LC9 frame. Now to get a little warmer dryer weather to try it out.
