    I have carried as EDC my Colt Mustang Plus II and a spare mag loaded with Corbon DPX backed up by my Keltec P3AT and a spare mag loaded with Fed Hydra Shoks. Currently my EDC is a G27 backed up by the P3AT.

    Yup! that's the best way to shut um down.

    I carry one of my .380s daily and have never had any qualms about it's ability. In fact I pity the fool that makes me pull it, cause I'll most likely empty the thing on him/them.

    DarthPete, if I may ask the reason for the switch from LCP to P238? Which do you like better? Im actually waiting on my permit and those are the two Im considering for everyday carry. Feel free to PM me to keep the thread on topic.

    Back on topic, I will be carrying a .380 as Im going for comfort and ease of carry. I will most likely be pocket carrying and I just dont think anything bigger than a LCP or P238 will be too comfortable in the pocket.

    I've opted for my Ruger LCP most of the time now with Gold Dot ammo. It's much easier to conceal and carry effortlessly.

    I have a NAA Guardian 380...........IMO, not an easy gun to carry.
    What I mean by that is, too heavy for pocket carry and too small for belt or IWB carry. I'm still trying to figure this gun out.

    In the fall and winter, I usually carry a Kahr PM9. In the spring and summer, usually a Kahr P380. Sometimes a Ruger LCP.

    I have an old OMC Backup (this gun was made prior to the AMT guns) 380 that I carry when it's needed. I have the steel followers in the mags, and due to an article I once read some 20 yrs back, I was able to grind the legs of the follower down to make it a 6+1 gun instead of the 5+1 (that's if you put one in the pipe) always been reliable.

    Yup "they" sure did. That's where I got the idea from.

    I figured if they could do it to what I thought was a good President, I could do it to there's in return.

    I think it's better fitting in this role.

    No way was I going to tie myself to any kind of "elephant", pocket, IWB, OWB, whatever. It was going to be the lightest and the smallest and was at least going to be 380. Easy choice from there--Kel Tec P3AT. May not be the prettiest but never a misfire and it is the closest thing to not having anything. Every ounce was, IMO, another ounce I did not want and when it came to counting those ounces, the choice was simple. Hey guys with 380s, look under the tactics section of this forum and read up on "point shooting". You are fooling yourselves, IMO, if you think sights and lasers on a 380 mean much at close in defensive situations, which is what this firearm is all about. Just sayin. Read up and give it a try. It will save you that fraction of a second that you do not have at say 5 yards.

    Weight has as much to do with it as size.
    Kahr PM9 at 20 oz loaded is 50% heaver than a 12 oz loaded LCP.
    That maters a lot for pocket carry.
    When I feel the need for something with more power I carry my PPS 40 in a holster.
