I just don't see any point in this round. Terribly low velocity and even worse torque. Invalidates it as a possible self defensive round for me. But now that this 938 is out it just seems right. I've gone back and forth on both the 238 and Bersa Thunder several times, but in the end I never pulled the trigger because they just went enough for me.

Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty sure this will be a soon addition for me. The weight is half that of what I carry now and that's a huge plus for me.
Just a slightly off topic question about that .380 How many people do you know that don't leave the area quickly when being fired upon? Not that I don't agree that 9mm is a better choice for an EDC, and not looking for the answerless debate on which calibers are the best......just simply, how many people do you think would pause long enough to ponder whether you are shooting at them with a .22 or a .380 or 9mm or whatever? I've never seen anyone being shot at question caliber, most are more concerned about being shot, period.

As for the 938, so far so good for me. I've had mine about 2 weeks now, it's the Nightmare edition. 1 FTE through a couple hundred rounds and i'm pretty sure that was my fault. Seems to be about as close as I can find to the perfect combination of caliber, size, concealability

The Nightmare or the Blackwood are the version I want. Hoping for Nightmare. Thanks for the further confirmation.

Good thought. Although there are many different circumstances. Look at the Cali bank heist about 10-15 years ago. Those guys had armor on and took a TON of shots from the out gunned cops before that ended.....

Does it have the same issues I read a lot about the 238?

I'm real interested and I know there's bound to be varying opinions and some bad apples, but I want it all so I can formulate my own opinion based on everything.

Also just overall experience with Sig in general. Good qc and cs? Lifetime warranty without a bunch of hassle?

Thanks y'all
I love my 938, seriously in love. I've put about 300 rounds through it. I haven't had any problems with it although we took it apart last week and now the trigger doesn't work properly. I called Sig, told the guy what happened and he said they'd fix it. So as far as I'm concerned their customer service is great. I also have a Sig 226 Navy, not sure his old it is but Trip was looking at the magazines last week and they say they were manufactured in 94 I've had it for two years and never had a problem with it.

I'm sure I will be also, if it's the one I wind up getting in the end. Pretty sure it will be tho, about 95% mind made up. Lol

Thanks to everyone for your pointers, comments and recommendations!

LOL, that one event always comes up. Of course, when the opposing party is armed to the teeth with full body armor, and ready to fight to the death there aren't a lot of options. But, we can also count the number of times that has happened in the last 30 years on one hand.

Not necessarily. What about the smaller instances that did not make it to your local news, or the ones that you just missed? I'm sure I have not heard of every home invasion, or robbery, ect. in the last 30 years.

Aye, but they aren't armed to the teeth in full body armor. Of course, body armor doesn't keep you from getting shot either. There was an old lady here in Atlanta whose house "mistakenly" thought to be a drug house, and when SWAT busted in she opened up with her .357 scoring three hits on officers before they sent her to the promised land.

Sig Sauer are solid firearms. Good photos anyone?
