Default 380 for deep concealment

OK, so I know it's not actually a 1911, but I was wanting some opinions here. What are the pros and cons in the vs. of the Sig P-238 / Colt Mustang. Which would you pick and why. I want this as my primary carry at work, and my BUG when not at work. For 'on the job' I currently use a 25acp for deep cover and BUG. I'd really like to step up to something with a little more "UMPHHF".

Also, I am looking at the Colt Defender for 'away from work' primary carry. If you have any opinions or things I should probably know about this 1911, please let me in on your knowledge.

You may have read my previous thread about these two pistols. I just don't want to get either one of them, and find out later that I could have made a better decision.....especially for that kind of money.

Colt Mustang Plus II. Why? Because it's the only .380 I got.

I voted for the Colt merely because that's what I want. Nothing in particular against Sig, just like Colts. But, none have shown up around here yet & only 'net purchases I'll make on pistols is thru Davidson's. Only place I've even heard about having them is Gun Broker & asking up to $100 over MSRP. I'm gonna give it until my birthday in May, then guess I'll get the Sig.

Get the Defender and be sure it's chambered in a real man's round!
