      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.

      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?

      .380

      If you can find a good one , look at the P230 sig. small and will handle anything you run through it. houge grips with finger grips.

      Bersa .380 sold my LCP to buy it, and very very happy.

      I'll add one more vote for a Beretta. I have the 85FS and it is rock solid.

      Yes, the Beretta and Sig are probably the best of the bunch mentioned here. But remember, they are hardly the pocket guns that the Ruger and Keltec are. So, that's probably what the original poster had in mind

      If I were you I would go and check on a glock 25, if you are really wanting a .380. I have held and shot a Kel-Tec .380. Cant stand them and werent very accurate. My cousin just bought a Skyy 9mm that was pretty nice. Not a bad price since he picked it up new for $300 after taxes.

      The Glock 25, and 28, are not sold in the US (except possibly to LEOs). They are made primarily for markets where owning the "military caliber" 9mm is prohibited.

      After holding the p-3at I would not feel comfortable carrying the gun myself but it would be great for my wife. around here I would go with the Kel-tec and not the ruger since the ruger is very hard to come by in GA. For me personally I would go with the kel-tec pf-9 or the p-11

      They were made primarily for people in South America. You can get them it is just a pain in the butt. Some gun shops have the ability to get some. It never hurts to ask. I posted this once one the glock section I believe.

      So you know of guns shops have the ability to circumvent import laws? Last I heard they are prohibited from sale here in the U.S. as they don't meet federal import standards or criteria for firearms import. If you have some new information, I'd love to see it. If some shop told me they could get a .380 Glock for me, I'd call BS and/or think something illegal was going on. Either way, not a chance they'd get my business.

      Edit: Did some more research and found this out:

      Many of the Glock's parts and sometimes the whole gun are dictated or limited by the BATF's system of "import points". To qualify for import a pistol must score 75 points based on the BATF's system which is below:

      Characteristic & Points
      Length: for each 1/4" over 6" (1 )
      Forged steel frame (15)
      Forged HTS alloy frame (20)
      Unloaded weight w/mag (per oz.) (1)
      .22 short and .25 auto (0)
      .22 LR and 7.65mm to .380 auto (3)
      9mm parabellum and over (10)
      Locked breech mechanism (5)
      Loaded chamber indicator (5)
      Grip safety (3)
      Magazine safety (5)
      Firing pin block or lock (10)
      External hammer (2)
      Double action 10
      Drift adjustable target sight (5)
      Click adjustable target sight (10)
      Target grips (5)
      Target trigger (2)

      The Glock 17 scores an 80 and the 26 scores the minimum 75

      Changes and features made to Glocks to comply with the BATF rules:
      - all models are imported with a cheap click-adjustable rear sight that is replaced at the factory with the stock sight
      - target (grooved) trigger added to compacts & subcompacts
      - target grips added to all models (required for the subcompacts)
      - due to their caliber, .380 autos (G25 & G28) do not score enough points to be imported

      They could be wrong. I will check and see. Last I heard you could get them.
