    Thank you Rosemary. That's exactly the case. I was a little spoiled with the smaller .380 P-238. Nice package, and it is a swell BUG.

    The P-938 was rushed to meet demand and the package did not include a holster, extra stock mags and the extended mags had to be bought separate. Bummer, but I'm sure marketing will catch up for future model years. I couldn't really use the flat stock mags anyway.

    NWFFT: But, as you already know, Sigs are heavy hitters... Delta force and SEALS didn't choose them over the big "B" for nothing. This one is smaller, but the rep is there. For outsiders who do not know Sigs, I might mention this..... They have a tool, finely machined. that attaches to the frame where you can fine tune the sights, a millimeter at a time. There is one for the .380, but I never needed it. But, so far, there is no tool for the P-938 (yet) I may, or may not need it. It's just too early.

    Yes mmszbi. like you, I am a shameless slave to the 1911 platform. But for you, the Sig fit wasn't there. Since (as least for now) the State does not decree this or that, so there is competition in the marketplace that allows a 1911 platform in different sizes and shapes to fit all shooters. Hey, it's the American way.

    Yes, lunch would work for 3. When we get closer we'll not bore the forum with travel plans and scratch on maps private.

    Icon6 Handguns, a "personal" Choice

    I LUV the 1911 platform, but only in the full-size government configuration. I've never been a fan of teeny-tiny 1911s, or teeny-tiny autos of any kind. But hey, that's just me. Nowadays, they're as popular as Corn Flakes.

    For me personally, my Glock 26 and S&W J Frames are as small as I'll go. I can effectively hit with both consistently, and neither has ever failed me, not once, ever.

    I wouldn't hesitate, once again, to carry any of my Sigs for serious defense, P239, P226, P220. I've found them all to be extremely accurate and dependable. As Rossi points out, Sig Pistols were chosen by (not forced upon) some very elite units in countries all over the world.

    @MMSZBI Have you ever held/shot a Ruger SR9? It's one of the most comfortable grips I've ever held.

    Sig does make some very impressive FULL-SIZE 1911s too.

    Yes I have held and shot the Ruger SR9, it is on the wish list. With my wife no longer wanting her M&P 9mm compact, she may get one before I do.

    I have handled, but not shot the SR9. A Harley bud has one. He describes it much like Jim did... slim, light and reliable.

    If it continues to break in well, it will be his daily.
