What do we have here?

Why, it's the Sig P938.

Says Shooting Times: "Mechanically, the P938 is in all ways a little Model 1911, reminiscent of the Colt Mustang .380, but in 9mm. It is a recoil-operated, locked-breech, single-action mechanism with conventionally located 1911-type operating features. The slide locks open after the final round in the magazine is fired, and the magazine release button drops the magazine free. The pistol has an ambidextrous manual thumb safety but no grip safety. The design features a full-length recoil spring guide rod and bushingless slide."

A 'little' 1911.  That's cute.  So, if your self defense preparations anticipate nothing more threatening than an enraged European, wayward Weimaraner, cranky cocker spaniel, or a loose Lhaso Apso - this might be the handgun for you.

For the more serious minded, choose the Sig P224, an abbreviated P229, available in the more useful .40 S&W and .357 Sig calibers.

Wonder if someone makes some Mesquite grips for this?
