So after reviewing the winner right now for me will have to be the LCP2. Due to cost and I am a Ruger Fan. I am going to pick it up because I can do a layaway and get it for 230 right now. So sometime after Christmas, I will have to go back over this because after posting this I found I need a single stack 9mm in my life; maybe two spaced out over a couple years [smile].

I would like to add that I really would have prefered a 9mm but this purchase has more to do will the ability to just throw in my pocket even maybe with sweatpants. (I'm lazy sometimes [smile]) than anything else. 

Thanks for all your guy's input and advice. Some of you guys got me thinking about when to pick up a revolver and other things I would not have thought about buying.

To solve all my problems I just need a couple million dollars [smile]

I hope this isn't too old a subject, but I'm in this same group right now, looking for a pocket pistol.

One thing I like about the P238 ( my mom has one, yes, my mom ) is the extra weight makes it awesome for me to shoot.  I generally prefer metal frames instead of polymers for the balance and recoil absorption.   With the extended magazine I can get a very firm grip and can dump the mag without my losing my sight picture at all.  Every P238 ( I think ) comes with excellent night sights as well, which I think make a big difference.  And though the trigger is heavy, it breaks very clean.  The high price is a deterrent of course.  And while the weight greatly improves the shootability, it also can be a downside to carrying it.  Throwing it in a loose pair of gym shorts might be enough to make them sag a little bit

I've not tried a P938, but I would like to so I could see exactly how much extra kick it has.  And if you're looking at the Sigs, Kimber also makes their almost identical micro carry line in both .380 and 9mm ( my sister has one ).  But, as mentioned, the external hammer would be a concern if you had to fire it from within clothing or a bag.

My problem with the LCP is the sights.  The ones on the LCP1 were practically non-existant, and even though improved on the LCP2 they're still quite small.  But it's cheap, light, and the trigger is much improved so I can perfectly understand the appeal.

Depending on your size limitation, you might consider the XD-S as well.  The XD series are probably my favorite striker triggers and the 3.3" XD-S is still small enough for me to fit in a cargo pocket.

I like you carry a glock 19 regularly but if it's warm out or I'm going to be wearing something like a polo shirt I opt for a j frame revolver. I'm not much for pocket carry so I use a hybrid style holster. Most of the time I forget I even have it on. This is just my opinion but I wouldn't buy a super nice pistol for a ccw. It's just going to get beat-up scratched up and holster wear. The Sig is a great pistol though. My buddy has a Colt mustang and loves it so maybe you could look at one of those too. Good luck! Happy shopping!
