There are a wide range of pistols that could suit different needs, body types, personal styles, and other relevant factors. Obviously, grip and comfort are major concerns as well.

Here at DE Guns, we wanted to alert you to some of the benefits of two pistols, the SigSauer P238 & Sig Sauer P398. Many people wish to have a concealed carry pistol for personal reasons and protection discovers that these guns are a good match for them. We would like to offer some helpful materials about the pistols themselves. You may discover that you appreciate the same qualities that make this pistol such a popular choice among other fans of concealed carry.

Letäó»s Start with Basic Specs on the P238:

  • 1.1 inches wide
  • 5.5 inches long
  • 5.5 inches tall
  • 6 round capacity (+1 chambered or with extended magazine)
  • 7.5-8.5 lb trigger pull
  • Single action
  • Manual safety
  • SIGLITE night sights (glow in the dark)
  • 15.2 ounces (most models)

Why Many Gun Owners Choose the P238:

Part of the appeal of the P238 is its relatively small size. First time or inexperienced gun operators may find this aspect makes the firearm less intimidating and easier to learn how to use than many of the alternatives on the market. They also find that the loading and operation of the firearm, as well as maintenance and storage, is relatively simple.

To explain further, many pistols on the market have a stiff spring that makes it difficult to load with these, but owners of the P238 tend to find it is not a problem for them. In addition, recoil, which can be quite powerful and startling to first time or inexperienced gun owners, tends to be manageable with this particular firearm. The slim design of the handle tends to fit well in the hand, as well as be comfortable against the body when stored in concealed carry.

A brief point of interest to our female shooters, many women who want to conceal carry firearms found this gun was a superior option to many of the more bulky options available on the market. They also tend to report the handgrip is more manageable than they appreciate the earlier point about recoil as well. It is small, lightweight, and shoots very well. You may find reviewers who suffer from the very common syndrome of carpal tunnel, which can often come as a symptom of typing on keyboards and phones. These say that this gun is less painful on the wrist than many alternatives.

These aspects plus the manual safety make the P238 a preferable pistol to the Glock, which can have a too-boxy and unwieldy grip and trigger for some, but not all female shooters.

Sig Sauer P238 SAS .380 ACP Handgun from DE Guns

The SAS model of the Sig Sauer P238 has gone through a radical dehorning process that results in an ultra-smooth, snag-free profile that is ideal for concealed carry.

Why Reviewers Love the Sig Sauer P938

To begin with, the Sig Sauer P938 tends to be more reliable than many of the comparable pistols on the market. This makes it an indispensable option if you are looking for the right concealed carry pistol for self-defense. Beyond that, the power of this gun makes it more practical and capable of stopping an assailant than a gun like a .22.

Reviews consider the build and operation of the gun to be durable, and practical, with functional and precise sights and flush-fitting and effective magazines. The curved, serrated trigger is set in the undercut trigger-guard. The trigger pull is a clean and relatively comfortable experience that improves as the gun is used.

The range and accuracy of the gun are superb. Reviewers have described it as combat-accurate with a tight, consistent and repeatable. There is a degree of muzzle flip that is to be expected with any handgun, and while it is powerful in the P938, operators tend to find it manageable.

In conclusion, the Sig Sauer P938 is considered a fun and functional firearm to engage with on both target ranges and in self-defense situations. It is lightweight, which makes for a comfortable carry, while still packing the firepower of a gun that means business. When you consider the price, the popularity of this handgun makes even more sense.
