So i walk in my local gunstore tonight and

surprise. There hiding on the shelf was a Sig P938 Nightmare. Really a neat little pistol. The extra depth between the front strap and and the backstrap felt really good compared to the 238. Trigger was very similiar to the 238. I would have bought it but I truly strugle with the small safety. In order to engage the safety it required that I adjust my grip (open up my hand) and then regrip the pistol. I hope they come out with an extended version in the future and that the success of the gun proves itself to be accurate and reliable. YMMV.

I didn't know those were available yet. I know there's a lot of interest in them. What kind of price was this puppy going for? I bet it won't be there the next time you go in.

I was surprised to see them to as I did not here that they were out yet either. The store actually had two of them shipped to them Tuesday. One sold wednesday and I am sure this one will be gone by today. I beleive it was priced around $708.00

They just shipped a few from orders placed back in December . We had 2 come in this week . Based on the above , 2 might be the "allocation" in order to spread them around to all their dealers .

It's going to be a winner imo . Other variations to follow .

Condition Yellow

I am thinking $708 is a good price point actually. My wife has the P238 and I am hoping to upgrade her to the 9mm just for the simple fact that 9mm is a much better SD round that .380 acp. Likely means extra purchases of Mags and new Holsters and etc.. $$$

This Nightmare model is all that appears to be out - or atleast what I have seen on-line thus far. Oddly though the Nightmare model is not even mentioned on the Sig Website. Looks to be Nitron black with SS slide stop and thumb safety? Although it also appears to have Night Sights - a good thing IMHO.

How does the P938 compare with the P239 size-wise? I traded a Beretta Centurion 96 for a P239 in forty shorty and it was a nice carry gun; just didn't like the "double action/single action" crunchenticker system. Then I fell in love with the 1911 and sold it. .45 is much more pleasant to shoot than .40 S&W, IMO

WAY WAY WAY smaller. It's almost identical in every way to the P238 except the grip is about 1/2" longer.
