Of all the different personal defense handguns produced by Sig Sauer, however, the P938 has to be considered amongst the very best of the best. A relatively small firearm – it looks a lot like a miniature Colt 1911 – this pistol is available a variety of different calibers (though most choose the .38 or the 9 mm for personal defense).


Overall design


As we highlighted above, this particular firearm is relatively compact, very lightweight, and is intended for personal defense as well as compact/concealed carry.


Available in a variety of different finishes (though the Army Green finish seems to be the most popular), this is a firearm that feels very high quality in the hand without feeling too happy or too light – and the 6 to 7 pound trigger pull is perfect for men and women that want to be able to defend themselves.


Stopping power


Available in .38 and 9 mm calibers, the overwhelming majority of people that end up choosing the Sig Sauer P938 as their personal defense weapon are going to reach for the 9 mm as it has better stopping power than the .38 and it’s also considerably less expensive as far as ammunition is concerned.


You’ll have the opportunity to load a variety of different 9 mm ammunitions into this handgun, but professional firearm trainers usually go with a simple ball style ammunition like the 124 grain NATO FMJ. 9 mm parabellum ammunition can be used as well, so you’ll be able to pick and choose anything that suits your needs and your budget right down to the ground.


Final verdict


At the end of the day, the P938 is a very capable, very reliable, and very compact personal defense firearm.


Offering plenty of accuracy at the seven your distance than most firearms trainers recommend you practicing at for personal defense, you’ll find this handgun to be accurate at even longer distances – though you’ll want to train (obviously) to get used to the trigger pull and the single action.


This is a highly recommended handgun from a legendary manufacturer.
