The 938 is an excellent conceal carry, its light enough that you almost forget you're wearing it but it doesn't work for everyone. The 229s, 225 and 239, along with some others can be great carry pistols but they require more effort to conceal—hands down, my favorite pistol is my M11-A1—it feels perfect in my hand and I am much more accurate shooting over 15 yards with it. The 938 is a great personal defense pistol.

If you can keep the 938, keep it. What is the 938s replacements purpose?
Most dealers will give you below what it would cost them to inventory it. Which would probably work out to 70% of wholesale Or there cost.
Probably the most affordable quality pistol out there today are the Leo trade ins either 226 or 229s, Chambered in 40 S&W. Most will not win beauty contests but at a purchase price of 30-40 % of a new 226 or 229 who cares, just a detail clean and lube W/new springs (maybe)
You are good to go for some time.
Pic on left before, pic on right ready for range n work.

If Possible Sell and buy separately.

The P938 is an excellent gun, the power of a 9mm with accuracy befitting of a bigger gun. Keep the gun!

As to the ex-LEO's, I've been beating that drum for years, and have bought several for close to half the price of new. Best deal out there with a level of quality not found in many new guns.

225-a1 or m11-a1 would be good options and not adding too much size from the 938. Both carry very easy and the m11-a1 has the double stack mags, so more capacity than the 225.

I have both, the M11-A1 and the 938, the M11 is twice the weight of the 938 but I feel it's a much more 'substantial' pistol in capacity and manufacture.

My CC instructors were LE instructors as well and they really preferred the M11 over the 938 for capacity, recoil and overall defense factor and I can understand their logic. The 938 is one of those guns I consider a tool, its not a fun gun for me to shoot but it has its purpose—personal defense.
