    Biggest thing in my opinion is the P238 is like a mini 1911 including the single action trigger. The LC's are double action. In an urgent situation you need all the help you can get. How's that from a rookie?

    The P238 is heavier and shoots in single action which you'll find more accurate. It's more expensive. Sights are better. You can buy one in any style you want: black, nitron, rainbow, stainless, etc. negative is the external safety.

    The LCR has no safety. Longer trigger pull. Less accurate. Channel sights. Recoil is more noticeable. Less expensive.

    I prefer the Sig.

    The Colt Mustang was recently released again. You may want to check them out. It may be cheaper than a sig. However the mustang was not known for reliability.
