I didn't vote because it's the same gun...
Id get a Kahr P380 but thats might just be me
Ill never sell my ruger LCP but am considering getting a second 380 - the new sig that is like the Mustang
Go with the Bersa Thunder 380. It's a dang good little weapon.
I like the Ruger LCP; she's plenty small enough to hide anywhere. Not a range gun, bites and barks a bit harshly, but for CC, I think she's nigh perfect, leastways for me.
OK so I'm not the most manly of men since I can not accurately shoot the LCP. The darn thing to me kicks like a mule. I can not shoot it well with two fingers. Yes, like my buddy keeps telling me, learn to shoot without your pinky holding onto something. I can't!
For concealed carry the .380 seems to be a really popular choice these days. So much so that I can not find any ammo for it in my area. Yup, your mileage probably varies, but the local gun shops only seemingly have enough such that they'll sell it to anyone who buys a new gun but that's about it.
For CCW, I like a 9mm. I like my Glock 19. A little big but I know that it'll serve well in the event, God forbid, that it is necessary. Lately I have been carrying my Glock 26 more and more. It, to me, is the perfect combination of firepower and size. Besides, I am shooting the hell out of it trying to get very comfortable with it. Purchased a +2 mag extension and the grip is ideal now.
Nice .380: Bersa Thunder
I voted LCP because I have one and that must mean it's awesome. I'm considering that new little Sig .380. It looks good. Then maybe a .32 acp to carry for when I run into "richard simmons" caliber perps.
the ruger lcp does not kick like a mule
if someone thinks it kicks like a mule rent a 357 mag and 44 mag or 10mm
the 10mm kicked so much the FBI dropped it and went to .40
I agree. The LCP most certainly does not, "kick like a mule." I hate to admit it, but when folks type that the LCP "kicks like a mule" I can't help but think that person is quite possibly a weirdo.
If your normal carry is a 45 and you are a big man look for a 9mm compact. At least you will be able to grip it with 4 of your fingers.
If the fight is so close to where I would be using a 380 acp, I would much rather hit them over the head with a shovel
Pretty dull answer.
between the ruger and the keltec I would get the ruger. Although I would also like to add another option. Look into the Keltec PF-9. its not much larger than its 380 counterpart but it has alot more knock down in a chambering that is much easier to find and has more knock down. it also holds the same amound of ammo as the above 2 guns. Its the one I am personally buying right now for a CCW. I am getting this with a crimson trace laser. I normally don't like the lasers but after using my friends LCP with the crimson trace I really liked it and its so cheap for the Keltecs I said why not.
