    Can someone talk to me about the Sig Suer P938,

    I love the look, I love the fact that it looks like a baby 1911.
    A couple of quick questions,
    #1 Is it an accurate weapon,
    #2 how hard was it to carry
    #2A how do you carry it
    #2b what is your body type.( i dont wanna date you just wanna know how a 38 year old 6'1 200lb clumsy dude would wear it.)
    Any other alternatives
    #3 what is the street value of one ie what could i expect to pay for one used and or new from a dealer/individual(ballpark it guys i know it depends on several factors that are impossbile to detect)
    #4 what are some known problems and fixes for it.
    #5 Im assuming i need to practice with fmj and carry hollow points will it function with said ammo.
    thanks very much for your help and consideration.

    I have a 938 and carried it for over a year.

    1 - its as accurate as I am
    2 -2c - not hard. I carry it reverse draw at the 5 o'clock. Basically a left handed holster. I'm a big guy and the knurled grip dug into my fat-roll while seated.
    3 - they are pricey for what they are ... $6-700 last time I looked.
    4 - a buddy had a pin shear on the safety. Didn't affect operation, but had trouble engaging and disengaging the safety. Sig fixed it very quickly.

    I'm a big Sig fan but ... I shot and bought an XDs in 9mm. I think may've replaced the 938.

    #1 Is it an accurate weapon. Just dandy. Love the trigger.
    #2 how hard was it to carry. Don't like the thick ambi safety compared to Kahr but has a nicer trigger than the Kahr.
    #2A how do you carry it. 2 oclock
    #2b what is your body type. bout the same as you but shorter and heavier lol
    #3 what is the street value of one ie what could i expect to pay for one used and or new. I paid $650 shipped with laser, sold laser for $100.
    #4 what are some known problems and fixes for it. Mine has an extremely stiff slide release compared to others I've fondled at the gun shows.
    #5 Im assuming i need to practice with fmj and carry hollow points will it function with said ammo. practice with both to prove functionality.

    Mitch, because im bored at work, and have nothing better to do, what does the xds give you that the 938 don't. Im not trying to be argumentative just curious. I have a xdm 40 which i really like, but I LOVE my range officer, however the range officer really aint a carry gun. I also have a RIA on order to bubba up with parts from brownells. So im looking for a small version of the range officer. I dont really forsee myself getting into a situation where I will need more than 7 rounds of any caliber. I tend to practice discretion more than valor. I dont do stupid things, go to stupid places or associate with stupid people. I alos jokingly ask what are your plans for your p938 rig?

    I have the sig p238, same gun just in 380.
    it's almost the same size, I carry it in the pocket with the pinky extension on the mag. I am 5-11 220 pounds.
    It is a accurate little gun, has 3 dot tritium with sig rubber grips. I spent 600$

    Fair question ... I have lobster claw hands.

    The 938 fit me better than either the Shield or Nano.
    So it was my choice even though my little finger didn't have room on the grip.

    The XDs with teh extended mag and lip gives my little finger a resting spot.
    The XDs feels a tick lighter unloaded and the grip is just a tick thicker.
    It fits my hand better still.

    If it is replaced, the 938 will be handed down to either my bride or son-in-law most likely

    1 - yes for what it is
    2 - no issues carried, have to carry in IWB can't do pocket like my LCP. Smaller framed, no fat role yet but working on it.
    3 - I've been seeing them between 6-7$
    4 - most issues now are with ammo that I've read, I've had a couple FTF but was white box practice lighter ammo.
    5 - like tstated in 4, FMJ lighter practice ammo FTF, but just in first 50 rounds, not since, no issues with HP.

    Thats honestly a better way to dispose of a pistol than selling outside the family.

    I have given guns away to friends/family but never sold one either. but if you give away to friends will you be my friend.jk
