i really like the bersa thunders. there is even a 15+1 version!! they are very accurate very easy and comfortable to shoot. i like them a lot better than the walther ppk they copy.

here is my thunder plus its the 15+1. grips are soft rubber, they feel like the stuff pachmyr uses.

I carry a S&W Bodyguard 380. I can't say that the laser control is the best, but the sites are very good. More accurately, because you change out the sites, it's very good. There are not many 380's that allow you to do that.

My makarov is one of my favorite guns. Extremely dependable and accurate, but its heavy and only holds 8 rounds, so not my go to gun.
I carry a keltec P11 daily. I'm not usually a big fan of the small guns but the double stack gives it a nice fat grip and it disappears iwb. But, I too had a lot of problems out of the box with it. Problems loading, cycling, and forget about using hollow points. Luckily I have a friend who's dad is a retired gunsmith. So I let him take a look before I traded it off. He said keltecs are some of the roughest machined guns he has ever seen. But after he got done smoothing everything out and going over the trigger it is a really nice piece.
