Like it or not, a J-frame 360PD and my SIG P238 are going to be a part of my life. No matter what your politics, many areas in my neck of the woods are posted as "no firearms."
This is important because at our local mall many merchants permit CCW, but the promenade does not. An innocent citizen is technically in violation simply by crossing the crack in the floor separating B&N from the food court. While this is changing, and Wisconsin law mandates the party just voluntarily leave the area (and even sworn officers say "concealed is concealed") but rather than jeopardize a nice afternoon out with my wife, I just carry 'smaller.'
And let's be honest here, when I'm riding I'm already carrying far too much junk in pockets and jacket. When I got my new thumb-break right-kidney holster for my 360PD, it was so light I had to pat myself down to make sure I still had it! It was a real pleasure over the old days of JackAss rigs and full-size Colt Government models.
My SIG was a tad glitchy when I got it. It now likes the hardball, Hornady Critical Defense ammunition (and Zombies), especially when used with SIG's larger seven-shot magazine and kept clean. It's long since broken in now, and I trust it, and part of me thinks I just ought to be happy I own a reliable example.
But having owned, handled and fired the Ultra II, I wondered if I was "settling." My wife will be getting her CCW permit soon, and while she prefers J-frames, her Guardian purse is fitted for a smaller automatic. Since she's familiar with the SIG--and it functions--I might be down a pistol.
Now, I was thinking about just getting a second P238--there's lots of money on the table. But am I being short sighted? Am I justifying the SIG because of costs, when the real issue should be safety and security?
I know nothing of the Micro. What's your opinion?
Hey, carrying this stuff gets heavy!
