Re: Perfect Carry gun
My wife has a Sig P238 HD (stainless). She loves it. It is pretty soft shooting and has an excellent trigger. It is a "cocked and locked" gun so all trigger pulls are very light. Also, the slide is one of the easiest to rack that she or I ever encountered.
Good luck with your selection.
BTW, we also have Sig P238 Nitron that we bought at Academy Sports because it was very inexpensive ($479). It is an aluminum framed gun and is a little lighter than the P238 HD, but it is a pretty soft recoiling gun too.
