      Heh, I sold my last S&W J-frame once I got my P3AT and it proved reliable. No desire to go back to the revolver. To each his own.

      My favorite is probably the Walther TPH. It doesn't really come in practical self defense calibers, though. For that purpose, I would have to join the keltec .380 group or peraps the new ruger, when it proves itself well designed and reliable.

      So, are any of you KelTec fans even going to check out the new Ruger LCP and maybe reconsider? Being
      a Ruger, it should be reliable and it looks like the fit and finish may be a lot better....

      I will certainly give it a chance, though it will be a while until I can legally carry. That assumes that it proves itself reliable and sturdy, of course.

      Since my KelTec works with 100% reliability now, I don't see a need for a different pocket .380. I don't care even a little about the appearance of a concealment pistol.

      But if the LCP was a 9mm, I'd be all over it.

      I'm curious, why the 180* difference in attitude based on caliber?

      Not exactly a 180, AZ, since the LCP is essentially the exact same gun as the Keltec. Most people around here would way prefer to defend themselves with a 9mm as opposed to a .380. Count me in that group.

      I just love MY Kel-Tec P-11 that my wife carries, and deal with my Cobra .38 spl Derringer. But, my Witness Compact P .45 acp is nice.

      Power to size ratio, mainly. If I had to shoot a guy, I'd much rather do it with a 9mm than a .380. I am currently in search of a reliable 9mm pocket gun that costs less than an M4gery. A reliable LCP in 9mm would be in my pocket the day after I got home.

      So, your thoughts on the Kahr PM9, please.

      I carry the Keltec P32 everyday and it has been very reliable. I have put down a deposit on the Ruger ClP. This doesn't mean that I will get rid of the Keltec. I just have the itch to buy another gun and the Ruger looks like the Keltecs twin brother, so maybe they will play nice together. Unlike my twin boys at home! I should be getting the Ruger in 3 weeks and will post on how it shoots. I know I should wait to buy until all the bugs are out of it but I am very impulsive and don't mind being the Guinne Pig.

      The Keltec P11 has been trouble free for the most part, and still one of the 2 smallest 9mm's. I like mine.

      I think it's an excellent pistol. I only pocket carry occasionally, though, and just can't justify the price for the amount of time I actually pocket carry.

      And I can't clip it to my running shorts like I can a P3AT.

      And I guess in that get-up an ankle rig is out of the question.

      SIG Sauer P232, Bersa Thunder 380, Walther PPK 380

      That being if I'm wanting to wander around with a pocket gun. I usually don't have much trouble carrying a commander size 1911 in an IWB though. I'm way too fat to run around without a shirt on

      Among the Rules of Life, as explained by Massad Ayoob:

      1. Do not eat the yellow snow.
      2. Do not wear an ankle holster with Bermuda shorts.

      While I live in Phoenix where it never snows, I do extrapolate the latter rule to include wearing athletic shorts.

      Multiple choice

      Favorite?
      that would be on of my pre-1950 Llamas. Perfect 3/4-scale 1911, deep bluing, wood grips, all steel, very accurate. But I don't carry them
      Carry would be a P3AT. Works every time. Mine is HC slide over navy blue grip.
      Also have an American Arms Escort I'm pretty fond of. It's longer than the the Keltec, but it's actually thinner, and it's all stainless steel. Pretty cool.
      And yes, I'll probably have to have the ruger when they get out and the price settles down.

      My favorite small pistol is my Astra 200 in 25 acp. A real jewel of craftmanship. My small pistol I carry is the Kel Tec .380 model. The Astra makes the Keltec look like a full size auto pistol.
