I carry my Ruger LCP a lot - in fact most of the time.



I carry it in a DeSantis nemesis Holster.

I cant' even tell it is in there.

Im a fellow supporter of the KT P32, I find that in this size and weight gun .32 is more suitable, They also have extended 10 round mags of which i own a few that are a great accessory to have, If need be i can empty the standard magazine in only a few seconds accurately... I would prefer this gun over the LCP or the P3at...

I carry FMJs in my p32, did some testing with wet newspapers and several layers of clothing and winter clothing. (Grew up in South Dakota so old winter jackets are abundant.) I was happy with penetration. It may not be ballistically better then the .380 but i carry it as a last resort weapon on my ankle or in my pocket. The only time i would use it is if my Main carry and my Bug was empty... Yes i often carry 3 guns... with the weight of the p32 you literally cant even tell that its there.

Your "testing" that you have described is measuring the effects of velocity. Velocity in and of itself is interesting, but isn't a definitive measurement of something as complex as stopping power.

The Kel-tec did it first and best. They make so extended mags ext so I would go with that one.

I carry a Jetfire in a slide holster on my belt and a BT380 in a pocket holster.

I traded in my Ruger LCP shown a few posts previously for a new Ruger LC9



It now rides, in a size larger, DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster.

It has great sights and for me is much easier to shoot and hit with.
