no , not all that bad , after years of telling my wife to get her concealed carry permit - she finally did it , then she started looking for a small compact , i had already given her a springfield EMP she wanted , but one of her friends has a kimber micro , she was all set to buy one then my son told her to read about the SIG 938 vs kimber micro , he mentioned i had one and that he had given me a veridian green lazer sight for it , it was still in the box , she wanted one on hers , 

so ive been carrying a 938 for a few years now , i really like[d] it , she took it , im back to carrying my colt 380 govmnt mkVI series 80 , i have a couple others - kimber ultra carry II in 45acp and a springfield EMP 9mm of my own , but both of those are a bit larger i got used to the micro size , the colt 380 is almost the same as it was what SIG used as its format for the 238/938 pistols , i just really liked my SIG , 

not sure but think ill get another 938 ,

I’m such a traditionalist.  I carry a Walther PPK.  

Funny story, my neighbor asked me if he could see it, so I took it out of the holster and pulled the mag out and pulled the slide back to hand it to him.  The gun was empty...don’t know how long I had been carrying it around like that! 

I also have a Glock 19 I like for carry.  Holds 15 rounds of 9mm.

My girlfriend's choice of a carry gun was based off of,"how cute" it is. A Taurus G2c in 9mm. Bought it brand new out the door for $175.00 too.
I will stick with my Springfield 1911A1 ...

I chose the Radom P36 in 9x18 Makarov. 
It’s the cheap cousin to your PPK.

well - folks its nice to have good friends , and i have a select few but they are good ones , i think i will have a replacement 938 this year , it is my preferred carry , i sent my FFL today , if all goes well it will be replaced , for now the colt 380 will do , only drawback is the holster - im not happy with what im using but its one i used for years before i got the sig so i think ill get reacquainted soon enough , i like the pistol im just not as fond as i was of my sig , 

might try going back to my kimber 45 or the EMP that i carried for a couple years each , but those are so much heavier and im getting older , i think they will carry me thru till i get the replacement tho , 

bottom line is i want my wife happy with her carry , confident and comfortable , i think she is , 
now - may god please bless her as he has me to never need it , 

my wife still likes the CZ82 in 9mm mak and the EMP in 9mm Luger for her plinking , im only wondering when she will start buying her own ammo ????????????? she likes shooting and goes thru a lot of it ,
