I'm planning to get a smaller pistol for carry. I haven't gotten my permit yet, but am not sure i will be needing one (MS = legal to carry in car w/o permit). I will also be looking for a pistol my sister can test drive as a potential replacement for her purse/dash titan .25 (gag). I have wanted a CZ-82 for some time, but i'm not 100% as to why. I have heard they can be a lil heavy for pocket carry. I have read that the Makarov PM is basically a simpler predecessor to the CZ-82 with a bit easier take down but few other differences. I have read good things about the Bersa pistols in .380, but i don't know too much about the differences between those models. It is my understanding that Bersa has a single stack and a double stack model and an odd-looking model made just for carry. I'm not looking for appreciation in value or collectability. I am just looking for the most dependable pocket pistol in the .380 range and with a metal frame. I am not considering a polymer pocket pistol at this point. "Bank for the buck"-type quality is probably the biggest factor in the decision. I will also be cruising the pawn shops for alternatives. I am still looking for a well-priced CZ52, but that wouldn't be my choice for pocket carry. Any suggestions re: penny-pincher pocket pistols, preferably in .380? Thanks Suggestions on where to purchase are also welcome. I do know a transfer-friendly local little gun shop.
