That's exactly my set-up. So far it is working.

My Sig P290 is great. 400 rounds and no problems at all. It's accurate and perfect for pocket carry. Trigger pull is no problem for...about like my Ruger LC9. Long but smooth.

I am going to just speak from my limited experience.I was able to get my hand on one at my local dealer and it was uncomfortable for me that alone lets me know that the 290's are not for me.I did get a chance to handle the xds and there is a huge difference for me although the xds is a little thin for me it was very comfortable.I will however be going with a P220 carry for my next family member.

Now I have problem. I went to the LGS and was able to handle, but not shoot, both the P290 and the P938 and I like them both. I will only have enough cash to get one of them. Which one should I get? The 938 is like my 1911's and that is a good thing, but for the last 6 months or so I have been carrying an SP2022, so the P290 is close. The P938 is $150 more than the P290 which is not a deal breaker, but still I wouldn't mind putting that money towards ammo. Any suggestions? I have read on here that some people are having trouble with their 938's. Is there still a problem with them?

I'm getting a 938 in the shop today and can't wait to handle it but I sold a 290 a few months ago and liked the feel of it myself.

I've yet to handle or shoot a P938. But if it's equal in quality to the P238, I'd say $150 would be a small price increase relative to the leap forward in finish, shootability, and just overall quality.

I had one and it was a decent pocket carry gun. The only issues I had with it is that I bought it right when it came out and paid way more then it is now and I didn't really like the DAO trigger. I had the best results staging the trigger when shooting which I do not think is that great in a self defense situation.

My wife bought me the P290 for Christmas. I was able to get out to the range yesterday. I shot 200 rounds through it without a single problem. At seven yards I removed the entire X ring from the target, with only 2 in the nine ring. I like this gun a lot!
The only problem I have had is with the Sig lazer. It turns itself off after every round. I have read on here that someone else was having this problem. I will contact Sig customer service next week and see what they will do about it. I am sure they will want me to send it to them and they will just replace it.
I love the gun, and it shoots extreemly well, without the lazer. So now I just have to wait on my holster to come in, which should be another two weeks.

I guess 2012 has been a great year around here. The wife and I were in Academy yesterday, and I saw a P938 Blackwood. We had a talk about it, and 5 minutes later she gave me the nod to go ahead and buy it. I got both Sig's that I wanted this month!
The P290 shoots well and I like it. I have not shot the P938 yet, it has been raining all day yesterday when I brought it home.
I will let you guys know what I think about it, when I get to shoot it.
