I recently purchased Bersa Thunder 380 cc and the Bersa Thunder 380 plus. It is semi dificult hidinh the bulkiness of the plus. But i love the feel and comfort of having 15+1 at my disposal. But i find myself wanting to use my wifes cc. It is very easy to conceal and has yet to give any problems. A very reliable peice.

Great trigger better ergos for palm of hand to trigger than the pf-9 too. and has a slide hold open that other micros don't offer. Good one handed shooter too. Price runs from 185 for oxided steel slide and one mg to 360 for the SS oor black finished SS slide and 2 mags. We have 2 of them in the family and been very pleased with them. Just buy a use a good pocket holster.

I have both the Ruger LCP & Kel-Tec P3AT...I like the Ruger LCP way more then the kel-tec...After buying the kel-tec new I had to send it back so they could fix-it from jamming every other shot...It jammed every other shot for more then 200 rounds...4 box's of 50....Talk about being pissed-off after buying a new gun out of the box....It seems to be fixed but I'm still not sure if I would put my life on the line with-it......

Or the Hellcat. All exact duplicates of one another. Lame. Terrible trigger, no safety or slide lock. Boo! Don't do Ruger pocket rockets, worst triggers I've ever had the displeasure of experiencing. Including the LC9. My buddy bought one after I did, same thing. Tried a few at shop same thing. To bad, it had the potential of being a very good gun. Need sao or da/sa to be worth while for me, or at least a smooth even pressure dao. Too much slack at first then resistance. Poor!

I'd personally step it up to a good 9mm, cheaper ammo, better bang, nothing to lose all to gain. Taurus 709 slim or Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact. Then we're talking quality gun and buck spent. Of course sound like you've already got that. No idea about size of your current 9mm though. The Bersa is not small at all. My biggest pet peeve with it...

For size the slim is the only one I'd look at.

I have a back-up Ruger LCP .380 that is so convieniently carried I forget I have it on me often. So much so I decided to make that a primary when needed. When going out with family members to a restaurant, theatre, or large event, I then carry both primary and back-up. I do like the LCP a lot.

I have a P238 and I like it a lot but the price makes it cost prohibitive to some. In that case, I think the LCP is a mighty fine little pocket pistol.

READ The OPs Tread First before telling him to buy something larger than what he has. He wants something smaller than a PF-9

Go w/the Sig P238 in a N82tactical.com tuckable holster. They make one to accommodate a Crimson Trace LG also! I wear shirt/tie work clothes & this conceals nicely w/o a cover garment.

U will pay a bit more for the SS, but in my opinion, well worth it!!
The P938 also rocks!

This criteria rules out the P238. I say go with the LCP. It's a very nice pistol and right around that price range.
