I have a 442, 642 and the 938. All have their carry times and places. As said previously, get both.

I don't know that there is a clear answer. Factors I have considered:

1. 9mm>38 Special>380 ACP so the 938 wins on power, J frame next, 238 last. But, there are steel J frames in 357 Magnum, so that is an option.
2. 6 or 7 rounds versus 5 rounds so the small autos win on capacity.
3. 938 is thinner, but only at the cylinder of the revolver and the overall profile of the J frame fits better in my pants, so the J frame wins.
4. Revolver wins on reliability.
5. I feel I shoot small revolvers better than small autos. This may be overcome with training, but confidence counts for something.

Of all these, I currently own only a 637, but will probably end up with a small 9mm at some point.

Hands-down the Sig P238 IMO

I sold my S&W and recently bought the Sig. Love the P238! I carry it in a N82 Classic Tactical holster. These are my new favorite holsters for comfort! The classic is easy to use, but the pro model requires a little practice to draw. I have to grab the grip with my fingers and twist to disengage the retention. A little inconvenient but the weapon is really secure and the comfort is unparalleled!

In that size category I like to go heavy and carry a 640-1. I've never trusted .38 or 9mm.

I own/carry the Sig P938 Equinox.

I absolutely love this little sidearm. So far 100% reliable. It is so light, I actually forget I even have the thing most of the time. It is under 1" wide, so it is very concealable. Also, it pumps out hotter defensive ammo, and loves it. It's like carrying a mini-1911 with night sights, and actually packs a real 9mm punch (vs. 380).
