    Don't own one but have shot one numerous times...my friend owns a Sig 232 and I'll tell ya that thing is sweet. Looks really cool kinda like James Bond stuff and its very accurate. If I was gonna buy a 380 I'd go for that one for sure plus its small & slim enough to carry daily.
    Good Luck.

    Thank you Steve. I have received many complements on that gun today. It really is a beautiful gun!

    I've owned a Walther PPKS. A fine weapon with an excellent set of sights. You can learn to shoot this firearm with excellent accuracy. The PPK was not available but I believe that the same comments will apply.

    The Europeans like the magazine release at the bottom rather than at the side because it is less likely to cause the magazine to accidently drop by a poorly placed finger while shooting. With practice I don't think it makes a bit of difference in terms of how quickly you can re-load.

    At any rate had a double stack .380 from Beretta in the early 1980s. It was a fine weapon and very reliable. The ammo back then was not so potent so I got rid of it, but today's .380s are much better. Beretta makes a single stack and a double stack. I recommend them.

    The OP did not say how he intended to carry the weapon. If you are not going to pocket carry the gun I would avoid the very small .380s in favor of the mid-sized ones that are easier to grasp and easier to shoot accurately. There are many of them out there all about the size of the PPK.PPKS. Sig makes one, CZ makes one.

    I voted for the Bodyguard............the Sig is sweet, but I don't like cock and lock......I carry with a Desantis holster in front pocket,,,comfortable and almost undetectable, unless you wear your pants like Elvis......

    I agree with Packard.....I own a Beretta 84fs.....12+1 capacity, great trigger, great accuracy, a liitle fat to carry, but if you are a larger person, it's probably not a problem....

The Sig, being an SAO, is something that I will practice, until I am proficient, before I carry. Let me know what you think, but please be nice. I took all of your opinions to heart and really bought what I felt the best about.
    Thanks Everyone!
    I believe it to be a great choice, both great reliable pistols. Just different platforms. Let us know how they shoot.

    I bought a new S&W Bodyguard and the trigger spring broke on the 14th round fired. I sold it after S&W repaired it because there's no way i could ever trust it again. I now have a Sig P238 for my daily cary weapon. I love the P238 and it is the most accurate .380 I've ever fired. I can do fairly decent at 50yds which I think is Great for any .380 The only draw back is that there is no decocking while safety is on so you have to cary "locked and loaded" or plan to load a round as you draw the weapon. Both of those options are dangerous for several reasons. All of that considered, I still LOVE my Sig.

    If you bought it in 2010, odds are, it's an early serial #...........anything after EAH, is later................

    The best .380 firearm for you is the one that fits your hand well and you can shoot very well. I suggest you try a range of firearms in that caliber and see which one is the correct fit for you. Everyone will have their preferences, and so will you.

    I own an LCP and a Bursa Thunder .380 and I like the Bursa a lot better than the LCP. The Bursa just feels better and shoots better than the LCP. I have fired close to 500 rounds through the Bursa and it has never had a mis-feed or a failure, it is just a good gun. The Bursa is also a little cheaper than the LCP.
    I bought the Bursa right before the Y-2K thing hit back in 1999 and gave it to my wife (JIC)! I had an assortment of pistols and thought she could probably handle the .380 better than any thing else I had at that time. The .380 was the perfect choice for her.
    Cutting through all the BS, I would highly suggest getting a Bursa over the LCP. Don't take me wrong, there is nothing at all wrong with the LCP, I just prefer the Bursa 3 to 1 over the LCP.

    Seriously, consider a Bersa,,,

    I have a standard Thunder .380,,,
    It's size is the same as a Walther PPK,,,
    It has a magazine capacity of 7 rounds + 1 in the chamber.

    I am well over 750 rounds in mine,,,
    Not one failure as yet,,,
    It feeds anything.

    The Bersa 380CC is 8+1 capacity,,,
    Personally I like the standard better than the CC.

    Click here please,,,

    Another vote for Bersa. I actually got the Thunder in .32 (just a thing I have for that caliber) but shot my buddy's .380 a bunch while making up my mind. Both pistols were beautifully put together. Mine was really tight at first but after 250 rounds it's smooth as silk and accurate as all hell - or at least as accurate as I can be.
