    There's a few.

I good holster, belt, and some new pants may be a cheaper investment than buying a new gun and will allow you to still carry your .45, which IMHO, is preferable to a .380.

    Any thoughts on that?

    OK. I see.

    Yea I think the IWB is a good idea and my pants are usually carpenter style, but if i buy 3 or 4 good holsters to find the right, then I coulda just bought a .380.

    And I love the .45, but I think its to big to carry for conealment regardless of what holster i get. HG

    That's awesome, hemi. I was born and raised in Kenosha. AMC's were everywhere and I owned my fair share. I always wanted to make a silly fast Gremlin. Good job!

    I've just added a P232 to my "family". I've shot the P232 several times before at the range I used to shoot at in Colorado. They had one as a rental. I now have one of my own. Pictures coming soon.

    I bought the LCP early on...Yes! I heard it got recalled. But, at 56 years old I have yet to drop a handgun. I guess that must be the exeption to the rule.

    Don't give yourself bad karma. I also bought the LCP early on. Yep, I registered myself with Ruger to get set up for the fix. I don't carry it much, so it doesn't bother me to send it in and get the free mag. Rather have it fixed than take the chance of an AD.

    i carry the Ruger LCP most of the time. During the summer months while in shorts I used a pocket holster. Now with the weather cooling off I am using the new Fobus Evolution (Ithink thats the name.) Very small paddle holster so it is easy on and off. I wear it about below the kidney and I forget that its even there.

    BTW, its a pretty accurate little thing as well.

    P3at or LCP, can't go wrong. I enjoy the finish of the LCP over a P3AT.

    I really like my Bersa Thunder .380.

    If you're ever at a pawn shop or gun show and you see a Lorcin .380, run away as fast as you can. Had one once and named it the Locin Jammin' .380.

    Kel-Tec P3AT for sure. Carries like a wallet

    Second post to this. Although I love my LCP, haven't sent it back in yet for the recall, I carry it all the time.

    I have to admit though that I have fallen in love with Sig and am seriously contemplating purchasing a P232. If I go this route, I will buy a SS model, yes a bit heavier, but hell it's a Sig!!!!!!

    Having said that, buy the LCP, you will not be disappointed, unless of course you are one of those folks that aren't satisfied with anything.

    I am Option 3. How so? I am sure the best 380 available for the least money is the Bersa Thunder 380. I have owned mine for years and hasn't hiccuped yet. Of your two choices I would go with the Kel-Tec. Again, why? I have a Kel-Tec P32 and it is a great little gun. Regards, Richard

    I have never owned any of the weapons listed (except for the shovel)....but I voted for the Keltec.

    I have owned a Walther PPK/S...and I liked it

    I don't think I like those preset hammers. What's a good model of shovel?
