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.:smt023
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.
Keltec P11 and Seecamp .32....a tie.
walther ppk 380.
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.
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:smt082:anim_lol:
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.
My minumum EDC is my G27.

Walther PPS 9mm
Been considering a p3at. Steered away from Kel-Tec for several years thinking $ ment everything.
Bought a P-11. Now my most used carry piece.
Bought it new. Stopped on the way home and fired 100 rounds without a prep cleaning, then 300+ more without cleaning (as a test) without any failures until the last few. Cleaned it and no problems snce.
Have an idea that the p3at will perform equally as well.
But willl, and have, looked at the LCP.
I'll take anything pocketably tiny, in .45 ACP. Right now, it's the AMT .45 Backup. At other times, it's the less reliable (but awfully nice) Semmerling LM-4.
For more serious "social occasions" I carry an Officers'-Model-size, Essex-frame .45 in a Mernickle high-ride holster, or a Star PD (in the same holster).
Smaller is better.
keltec p32 or p3at. more power but still light weight the pf9
since my last entry i have bought a ruger LCP
and it has been 100% as of the 400 rounds thru it so far
I carry a LCP. I get my guns from a private FFL Dealer, I ordered a P3AT from him, but he accidentally order the light grey framed one. Was not into that, so he cut me a deal on a LCP for $250 with an extra mag, due to his mistake! Got to find that good FFL dealer.
