    I did the same. I haven't looked back. The P238 is a very nice gun and it shoots like a champ. Mine is incredibly accurate, easy to shoot, and no failures yet (150 rounds of FMJ and 50 rounds of JHP).

    Regarding pocket carry of a SA pistol; I primarily carry mine IWB but had a custom leather pocket holster made by R Grizzle Leather that immobilizes the thumb safety. When I need to pocket carry it works great.

    It's just my humble opinion, of course, but I think any .380 that it is large enough that it has to be carried IWB, should have a 9mm (9x19) substituted for it.

    The SD performance difference between the two is significant, and there are many 9mm's that can be easily concealed, IWB.

    Let me back-up one step:

    I primarily carry my G23 IWB, in some cases P238 IWB, and in other cases P238 in the pocket. I probably should have something in-between the G23 and P238.

    Bud's Guns has the Walther PK380 for $339. Would anyone "up" the Walther relative the others at that price? Thinking of getting an LCP for the wife but the Walther is tempting at that price. It is bigger but is still fairly small and holds a few more.

    I just did a review on this gun after shooting it. But out of the list, I would say Kahr P380. Although the Sig P238 appears very nice!

    Walther PPK/s and LCP

    I like both for different reasons. The Walther is bigger but a fantastic piece of machinery. I like it for winter carry and home defense. I have the CTC grips on it. I carry the LCP (also with CTC laser guard) in a Tuff pocket roo holster now that it's hot out and I'm in shorts and T-shirt.The Tuff holster is sticky and makes a good inside the waist band carry, especially since it has a seperate compartment for an extra mag.

    I would go with a used Beretta 84, I just got one, in great shape, for less than $300, shipped. I've had two previously, and the similar Browning BDA 380, and the only reason I sokl them was I needed money. They are great guns!

    The reason the hi-point has the high number is because at $150 there are a lot more out there. OR is it the shiny racing stripe down the slide?

    All in the $300 range

    1.Bersa's are great.
    2.The new PK380 ( where I live $309)
    3. Used Beretta 84BB. new ones are $6-700.

    None of the above are great for CC. But I don't carry 380.

    I cannot vote for the .380 that I had as I found it difficult to shoot effectively. It was a ruger LCP. It worked every time, it was just to small for my meat hooks. I sold it. I have not replaced it with anything. My pirmary carry piece is a G26.

    The LCP, or any other mouse gun, requires a modified technique for those of us with larger hands. I can only get two fingers on mine, but have learned to shoot it fairly accurately. But still, I only carry it when there is no other alternative. If you are able to conceal a 9x19 (Luger) or larger, you are much better off.

    I think it depends on the usage of said gun. I had a Beretta 80 series years ago that I absolutely loved and was a dream to shoot......but for CC, not the best. I ended up trading it for a Kahr MK9 which was smaller (easier to conceal) and was 9mm. Now 10 years later I find myself wanting a pocket gun for shorts and t-shirt weather, and I just picked up (today) a Ruger LCP. In my opinion, at $289 brand new, was the best .380 pocket gun for the price. I have spent range time with a buddy's LCP and find that I can shoot his very accurately at self-defense distances (7-10 yrd.) Hopefully mine will shoot just as well and be as reliable as his, then the little LCP will serve it's purpose. In the winter, I usually carry my glock 19....I just can't really conceal the glock well in shorts and a t-shirt.
    So, after typing more than most people want to read, my vote goes for the LCP (at least for MY use)

    My favorite .380 acp of all time is the 13 shot model made by cz. Have a buddy who owns 2 for the past 20 years & he really likes them.
