    I need to find myself a woman who likes guns. Lots of people in my area are idiotic liberals.

    Very nice, woolley!! The gun ain't bad either.:D:rolleyes:

    I like the black P238 a lot more than the two tone one I bought, I was in the Army so I did not want the USMC one. I kinda wish they made an Army version!

    It is looking like a nice day on Wednesday so I might finally get to take mine on a trip to the range.

    depends on which one of us you ask ! :D:D:D She has had some formal firearms training, so she can hit what she's aiming at.

    I ordered a p238 for stock and had it 3 days when a guy and his wife came in and bought it and ordered another one and 2 extra mags. I will try to keep them in stock from now on, but they are hard to come by.

    carrie is a damn fine shot. I met her at the range with chris and charles a couple months ago. From handguns to rifles she can hit what she shoots at near and far. Chris got him a good one!

    Got out to the range on Sat and broke in the 238. Performed near flawlessly for 256 rounds. Had one stovepipe, no real explaination for what caused it though. Shot at 15yrds and held within 10" group offhand w/ Federal AE and was around 6-7" with the Hornady XTP's. Will post up some pics later tonight, don't think I got any of the targets though. We tried out the new multi-colored splatter targets, they were nice.

    There was a couple of guys that were shooting next to us that had a Diamondback and an LCP, they both shot the Sig and were impressed; their group sizes shrunk about 2".

    I also had one stovepipe breaking in my new sig 226 this weekend. Couldn't figure it out, either. I blamed the ammo - cheap walmart winchester stuff.

    So your 238 tolerates the federal ammo? My beretta puked nearly 20% of the federal I tried to feed it. I had a ruger do the same thing. I haven't tried it in the sig yet...

    250 rounds of the Fed American Eagle and only one hiccup. I think it was just a loose grip on the gun when that happened though. I've never had any issues with any of the Fed AE that I've shot.
