Either the FEG, or the Beretta 84 just have the grip sticking out. My Pocket "T" shirt covers it up. .....And they are easier to draw than when IWB.

    Thats what Im lookin at gettin. What kind of holster is it? Hg

    If I can get a good holster then Id love keeping the 45 to carry, but Im afraid to go broke trying holsters. Thought about stitching my jeans pocket so the gun will just fit in them were the handle just sticks out??? Think that might work?? HG
    off topic but do you own a Gremlin with a Hemi in it?

    If you can afford a P3AT or LCP, then you wouldn't go broke trying a few holsters. Besides that, when they're hardly used, most have a decent resale value (atleast most that would be worth trying).

    Also, you didn't really answer any of the questions that were asked of you.

    Check out a Beretta 84FS or Walther PPK/S - both are great .380's.

    Having said that, there are many subcompact 9mm's available now which are very diminuative.

    And the 9mm is a much better caliber.

    Good luck.

    My 70 year old mom just bought a LCP. We picked it up tuesday, went to the range to make sure it funtioned well and found out friday they were recalled. Ruger does not have the fix yet so it was wait and see till they send her the notice in the mail. She bought it for her annual trip to Florida and was worried she would be without. Thanks to my local shop Jalensky's, they took it back for full credit, pulled the rest off the shelf And sold her a like new Sig 232 two tone with night sights for 100 bucks more. That is one sweet little machine. Great trigger, smooth action and the slide glides like it is on ball bearings. If you still want a poly, go with the Kel tech.

    There's a few.

Also remember that if you carry IWB, you need to wear pants a couple inches bigger in the waist than you normally would to accommodate for the gun. 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.

    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.
