P238 or Para 9?

I have been looking for another small carry piece. I stumbled on a new Sig P238 and fell in love. I love the looks! Like a mini 1911....

Then I saw the new Para carry 9. ( I think thats what it's called..) It looks JUST like the P238.. but in 9mm instead of the 9 shorty (380).

Anyone own one of these? Is it close to the same size of the P238? I own a P229, and love it. I've never owned a Para Ordinance.. I've heard they are decent...but tell me what you think.

Seriously damnit... Am I the only one that thinks the P238 is just freakin kickass looking??

I did more research.. the Para "carry 9" is definitely bigger.. but it carries a bigger punch. 9MM vs a 9mm shortie...

Taker a look at he Walther PSS. 9mm or 40. Slam frame and slide. Very nice.

The CZ2075 Rami is also 1911-ish. It's a hammer fired DA/SA that's available in 9mm or .40sw....although I think .40 in that small of a frame would be a bit sharp to shoot. That Sig P238 is pretty badass looking for an itty bitty pistol, and the Para you're talking about is the PXT Hawg 9, also pretty damn badass looking. I think the CZ just might be a little less expensive than the Sig or Para

Ohhhhh....it looks like a single-stack, spurless hammer version of the Hawg, something you could put in your pocket.
