Yeah the grips on mine are made by houge but are metal!. I liked my p238 but I sold it because I felt the 380 is too wimpy of a caliber, and moving to 9mm or higher, nothing smaller for carry than that. I never had any problems with my p238, it was a great gun, but for just a tiny bit bigger, and smaller than lc9, I went with the p938.
SHTF vs TEOTWAWKI you ask? SHTF, just some crap on the ceiling and walls, TEOTWAWKI end of the world as we know it. Orignally made by 9mm/®™©
