I finally fondled a Micro.

I had it side by side with a P238. First thought more narrow. More slim, lighter, then started thinking recoil would be more. Shootabilty, reliabilty. I can get a pretty one with ambi. Sig is missing the boat on ambi availability. I would have already bought a SAS if I could have found an ambi so I buy the 938, Too heavy for me to carry in my pocket. Prolly gonna do it. Your favorite Micro?

There are several I like but I have narrowed it down to 2 or 3. But to be realistic for a EDC or a summer time carry pistol, I would probably buy the Micro Raptor Stainless.

I am bad about flashy things holding my attention so the Micro Sapphire and the new Diamond Micro also interest me. If money was no object I could probably pick at least a couple more.

I know exactly what you mean. I just didn't know how to word it.

I have only had it out twice. Maybe 100 rounds can't remember for sure. 1 or 2 FTE. I like the gun a lot. I would only carry it in my pocket when I am not able to carry my ultra.

Sig makes the P238 SAS with a ambidextrous safety, ask your dealer if he can get you one.

After looking at them side by side I really like the Kimber better. I just hope it is dependable. The little short recoil spring is weird looking but Kimber knows more about that than I do for sure. I really like the weight difference and width the most. Let you know what I picked in 54 min.

Glokrok, I hope you are fully aware that "fondling" is the very first step to an all out obsession!
