EXACTLY, can a brother get an Amen
I am considering getting it for a pocket gun or for the wife.
she would be better served with a J frame..
EXACTLY, can a brother get an Amen..
She doesn't care for it too much. She shot her friends Kahr P380 and liked it. We saw the P238 Sig in a local store and she loved the feel and looks of it. It fit her hand great, she had no problems racking the slide and it fit in the places she is interested in carrying it so I am considering getting it for her. Flashbang bra, Naturally Concealed Holster, and thigh holster plus it will fit in her hidden pocket in her purse. My wife is very picky with guns so if this is what she likes (and it actually shoots well) that is what she will get. She can always use my J-frame 38 special if she chooses to later on and I will use thee P238 as a backup gun. That is my primary use for the J-frame as it is anyway.
if she can shoot it without breaking her wrist then it's a solid choice.
The other thing to consider, is running her through drills for clearing jams, stacks, double feeds and mag changes.
This is something the revolver will always have over the semi auto, if it don't go bang, squeeze off the next one until you come around to it the second time and it will probably go bang that time.
With a semi auto, a double single would be best, because if it doesn't pop when hitting the primer the first time it will drop to double action again and she can pull through a second time which will probably set the primer off if the first time around all it did was seat the primer. ( happens allot actually )....
anywho, The P238 is a solid gun and with the right ammo it will perform. I'd probably look at the Ranger T series of hollow point in sub sonic which will give her faster follow up shots and also tighter groups.
For my own carry, and shooting i like having both exposed hammer, and single action autos.. That being said for defensive shooting, and CC the DA auto has such a huge edge that it's hard to argue the point.. Consider a defensive scenario.. We can be pretty certain that the LAST thing thats wanted is to spend time racking a slide, the only real world option is carrying condition one, and i think we all know that (in a single action auto) this doesn't happen all that often..
As yourself the last time you saw a 1911 holstered in condition one.. Probably at the local gun store, or range.. We all know it's the "right" way to carry a 1911, but that hammer back is such an "eye catcher" that it's rarely done.. proof of that is the % of holsters designed for condition one carry.. this is the one really solid argument for Glocks, and or any DA auto..
Easy side by side test to see that there is NO way a slide can be racked, as fast as a trigger pulled, factor in the loss of fine motor skills under real world flight flight conditions, and it's pretty simple.
