I bought this on Valentines day, and wasnt sure if I wanted this, or a p938. I wanted an all stainless gun so the p238 line was looking more attreactive. However, if there is one thing that I have learned when buying guns, it's to not compromise! I dont feel like I compromised at all with this gun. The build quality is amazing and the finish is great. Plus, realistically, I am in a low threat/risk area most of the time, and feel the .380 would be adequate for self defense. It carrys VERY well, and hides great underneath a light t-shirt. Still have to test for reliability, recoil, and trigger pull, but from what I can tell, this is a SOLID pistol that would work for a lot of people. Just pick one up, and you'll see what I mean.
