Awhile back I started comparing the Sig P232 vs other .380’s out there in the wild – a lot of you folks carry .380’s for a variety of reasons – initial cost – the ability to conceal the pistol since most are relatively small – whatever YOUR reasons are – and if YOU are comfortable with the .380’s performance – more power to YOU!
I left off with the Glock 42 – which is good stuff and has the advantage of being in current production. The Sig P232 is my personal favorite .380 – it simply pushes all my buttons for a .380 pistol, or just about any pistol for that matter! But – there are so many pistols out there in the wild which are in a much more effective caliber that I wanted to continue this with pistols in the same – plus or minus footprint as the Sig P232 – but with a bigger bang thing going on . . .
So here is a quick look at what I am carrying at the moment . . .
Sig P250 – 9 + 1 – 230grain .45 hard ball goodness . . .
Let me get the magazine out and the round out of the chamber . . .
Hanging out together . . .
Practically the same size – .380 or .45 acp?
I haven’t forgotten about the “series” – it has just been ridiculous getting to the point of retirement – still have a couple of things going – taking two different classes to keep the brain matter stirred up – and I have basically gotten to a point where I actually have time to play a little bit on the web . . .
I will get a complete “side by side” done by the weekend for you folks – and I am going to try to do one every week or so – not including the “new” micro 9’s – which I just do not care for – they are just too small for me to get a good grip on – what I will show you is a few 9 mm’s that are concealable – shoot good – and easy to hang onto while you are shooting them – there will be some caliber surprises in the mix for you – of course most of you folks realize that . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
