Some great suggestions above. The only one I would add is the Walther PPS. I don't own one personally, but I've read great things about them from people on various forums. Available in 9mm and .40.

My solution to the FL (or anywhere else) heat is a PPS in my pocket. OUTSTANDING gun!!!





I bought the first one that was delieverd to the LGS after reading an article on it. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

I pretty much run like heck from Ruger nowadays...I've had WAY too many problems, from Vaquero's with lousy timing to 10/22T's that wouldn't shoot worth a dang...and if I can make an old Marlin 99 shoot a dime out at 50 yards, I oughta be able to make a 10/22 Target model get 'em all in a quarter at 50...you would think.

Then with all the recent Ruger recalls...like the LCP (.380) & SR9 (9mm) recently...

They just don't make 'em like they used to.

I might buy an older Ruger...but I don't think I'd touch anything made since 1980 with a ten foot pole.

I honestly have a nasty habit of buying European guns and alot of military surplus.
So far,I haven't been disappointed.

Perhaps we are forgetting probably the most obvious solution. Stay in the A/C.

Bought a LCP a few months ago and have been carrying it daily.
About 300 rounds through it, both ball and JHP. Absolutely NO
problems. Been shot be several people, and not even one little
hiccup.

Get the Crimson Trace laser for it. The LCP iron sights are a joke,
although it does point shoot well for me.

Have a DeSantis Nemesis holster for it, and I don't like it. It lets
the gun rotate on my jeans pocket so it is butt up. Have a
different holster coming from Alabama Holster Company, hope it
works better.

Bersa Thunder 380 or Ruger LCR...
I had a Bersa Thunder 380 and is an outstanding reliable gun.
I tried Canebrake's Ruger LCR and I fell in love with it... extremely lightweight (even loaded) handles +P loads, it will disappear in your pocket...

Can't go wrong with a S&W J Frame. Or check out the new Bodyguard series from S&W. 380 auto 38 special.

Default LCP is sweet

After a bad start this little pistols have come a long way. I 've had my LCP for over a year and I'm very pleased with it. No FTF or FTF the only thng with her is you have to let her rack slap back when you pull it back or she will at times not load, but I (and most people) carry with one in the pipe so this is not an issue. Comments on Crimson Trace LAser sights are right on! There is no site on this little baby, but with the laser I can put all of the clip in a 5" pattern at 30', just aim and pull fast and long cause the trigger pull feels like 2" on this tiny gun. Carry's like a dream, disappears in my pocket, I use a Nemesis Super fly and it works great, Get one you will love it.
