I was seriously tempted by a S&W 642 and I may even pick one up someday but the Ruger is just better for my usual style of dress. I'll pick up the LCP early next week as I'm actually trading another gun for it and some $$$...
I hear ya... When I was looking for a pocket gun, the LCP was sold-out and not available. I bought a Kel Tec P3AT. It's basically the same weapon. I carried it for a long time. It's now my wife's carry. I didn't want another .380 so I looked at tons of carry guns. I settled on a Taurus Model 85, in .38 Special calibur. It's a little tougher to carry as compared to the LCP/P3AT autoloaders, but I get a lot bigger BANG from the .38 Special +P. I'd really like to get my hands on a Smith & Wesson Model 60, 357 Mag.
