Looking for new "Pocket Pistol" Suggestions
I need a new pocket pistol as a back-up or summer clothes alternate.

I just traded off a Cobra Derringer .38 special several months ago cause I heard bad reviews and now it is time to replace it.

I do not like Kel-Tec and am iffy towards the .380.

Other than that I would consider any other minor caliber (.22s welcome also). Revolver, semi or maybe even a better quality Derringer. It needs to fit in a front or cargo pocket. Would like to spend $500 or less.

Ruger LCR - Everyone will be along shortly to recommend the same thing, but with crazy huked-on-fonix spelling. ;)

My 2 main carries are both .380 - a Walther PPK and a Sig P238. The Sig is small & light enough to work as a pocket carry. Now that I have about 150 rounds thru the Sig - it is my daily carry...

I trust a Beretta Tomcat (32ACP). I like the combination of size, capacity, and features.

I end up carrying the LCP almost every day. Recently put crimson trace lasers grips on it and really like them. BTW, I also have the LCR with Crimson Trace, and it is a fine small gun, but the LCP is considerably smaller.

I have a little S&W J-Frame. Sometimes I even forget it's in my pocket. It's a 38+p.

Almost everybody is very happy with the Bersa .380...every review I read about them is good.

S&W J Frame. Ruger LCR comes in second, only because I didn't like the cylinder release "button".
