SIG Sauer P238 238-380-NBS12 380 ACP, $710 (Grade: C 2014)

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Based on our history with this line, this gun was a disappointment. Its control set should have produced a 1911- like functional experience, but the inconsistent trigger pull affected accuracy. We loved the feel of it, but the rubber grips would affect the draw if itís not in a holster. The laser is included in the price, and that optic helped accuracy.

The SIG comes with a nice leather holster. That would be our preferred carry method.
This is where the rubber meets the road, or the hand. We loved the feel of the pebbled rubber grip with finger grooves. The magazine base pad provided purchase for a third finger.
