Unlike my other pistol, where you aim in the 6 o’clock position, I found the P238 to be most accurate when I put the front site right on the target to cover it. When I aimed at 6 o’clock, I was shooting low. The other difficulty with a short barreled pistol is that is is much harder to line up the sites accurately and you are more apt to be at a variance on the target with the slightest misalignment. I found that was shooting consistently to the left of the bulls-eye, and it took me a long while to get on target.
The Beretta Bobcat is a semi-automatic pistol that has no slide action. It is a break front loader that is easy for a lady or someone with wrist problems to load and shoot.
The pull of the revolver makes it harder to shoot straight. Practicing with the Ruger LCR, but looking at the Beretta Bobcat for a ladies’ concealed carry. Or a gun small enough to fit in a man’s pocket.
Trying out the Ruger LCR – our first field test makes us realize that the harder trigger pull of a double-action revolver makes it harder to hold on target than a pistol.
The Ruger LCR with Crimson Trace beats out the Smith and Wesson Bodyguard with Laser for ease of use.
