Are they worth the money? I would like a 9mm for pocket carry....any info would appreciated.
I have never even shot one, and those that own them love them, but for the price they better have like an HDTV in them with full surround sound.
lol, yep, but after researching other brands(KelTec,Bresa, and Tauras) what is your life worth? They all seem to have issues, though KelTec's customer service sounds like it is well worth it.
Of guns that size there are options out there that are great but half the price or less. I have a NAA Guardian .32 that it 100% reliable so far. The .380 version also has a great reputation. In guns the size of the Rohrbaugh I have a Bersa thunder .380 and a Polish p64 that is dead on accurate and completely reliable for only $150. I have never had a Kel-Tec so I can't really comment on them but a lot of people carry them and swear by them.
I had a long talk with the designer of the Rohrbaugh a couple of SHOT Shows ago. Smart guy and knew what he was talking about. Very nice guns. I've only fondled and not fired them, but some reliable sources (like John Farnam) recommend them highly. Keep in mind they are itty-bitty guns, with heavy recoil, small grip and minimal sights.
Is the Rohrbaugh worth $1100? Not for me. I only pocket carry on a "sometimes" basis, when I'm dressed so that concealing a Glock is difficult. Thus, I am satisfied with a reliable KelTec P3AT. But if I pocket carried full-time, I would get a 9mm. The Rohrbaugh would be in the running, but so would the Kahr PM9 and the KelTec PF9. If the latter eventually proves reliable, it will be an excellent budget alternative to the others.
