My recommendation would be the 226. I don't own any of the others but I do own other Sigs and the 226 is my favorite times 2. For me it just felt right the first time I picked it up it is like an extension of my body. Others will say the same thing about their favorite, I'm sure. IMHO you can go wrong. I have a feeling that a 1911 will be my next Sig. Bought a couple of entry level pieces last year and I love the platform.

I selected 226 earlier... My opinion has changed drastically. I would take the 229 over a 226 in a heartbeat. What did I do? I picked up a Remington R1 .45... And I've got a Colt Combat Commander on its way here...

I hear a set of G10s are thinner, and wonder about that a lot.
I held a new 229 with the E2 grips and it fit better.
Have you tried the g10s?
As an update for anyone with the 229.
I got the G10s from Midway and WOW they are so much thinner than standard.
Mostly the back strap. moving my whole hand foward. Made my 229 a perfect fit for me.
Good look and feel as well. Very grippy. I have ridged G10s on two guns, and these stippled are twice as grippy. Haven't shot yet, but has gotta help.

The 238 had come out issues, and got all worked out in the first year.
Now they have a top notch rep.
Very easy to carry. You need only to decide if you want, or feel good, with
cocked & locked, or DA long pull trigger. Through much of the market, it comes down to those two basic ways of going about it.
For me I look for defense ammo that states good for short barrel. There are several good ones out there.
One sold around here is Speer Gold dot short barrel 124 HP in 9mm.
Good luck with it and get something you can carry all the time. Doesn't do any good at home in the safe when you need it.

I carry a P238 SAS cocked and locked with Hornady Critical Defense 90 gr FTX in a Sig 7 round mag, with an extra 7 round mag in my pocket. 15 rounds total. I use the factory Sig SAUER holster that came with it. So far this gun is flawless. I'm willing to bet my life on it.
This being said, had the P938 been on the market when I purchased the P238 I would be carrying the P938 instead. Now it's on my wish list to own a P938. I hope by then that there is an SAS model available.
