I feel like some companies are charging you for their name only (i'm not naming those names). Some are adding extra charge for wear and longevity treatments. Cheaper guns can function just the same, they're just missing the name and the extra expensive treatments that don't affect function. I'd trust my life to a $100 hi point any day of the week if I needed to.

When it comes to CCW, I am wanting one that is small enough for the pocket, or use a IWB holster. I have a Smith and Wesson .40c, and given the size of this handgun, I cannot see myself using this as a CCW.
Right. I have the Beretta 96A1. I could never carry it concealed. I'm 5'9", and 140. Nope. Sorry. That's why I arrived at the Sig P938. When I get it, I'm going to IWB carry it.

Spend the money and get a SIG, Glock, or Beretta.
God knows I love Beretta, but have you heard of all the problems with the Nano? I wouldn't give you $50 for one. Until they figure it out, anyway.

One thing I can say about all pocket sized pistols, "I know someone who owns one that either didn't work or doesn't work." I don't think there is a best pocket pistol. They all have problems....It's up to you the owner of the pocket pistol to shoot it often enough to be confident it's going to work when the SHTF.

I have the Ruger SR9C. Picked it up for $379. Fits my hands well(I'm 6'2 with large hands). My issue before was finding a gun that felt good in my hands. The mag extension helps a lot.

Still looking for a S&W Shield. Can't find one for the life of me. On several waiting lists.

Everyone's gonna have their own personal preference.

The Bulldog ring type IWB holsters for a P3AT will fit your vaqueros. It will allow you to carry them IWB. If I can find a SS ruger I will post a picture. Hard to see black on black with my camera.

And that's why there's so much junk on the market.
When you pay for a SIG, you're getting your money's worth.

Course I gotta admit, there's nothing wrong with a HiPoint for "takin' down a liquor store, or smokin' some fool!"

You'd be surprised at how many rednecks I know that use hi points. I love them. Barely had any problems. Had equally as many problems with the Glock 17. Case in point, you mentioned Sig. The Sig Mosquito is a royal P.O.S. and they charge out the a## for it.
