    I went with the Diamondback 380 after researching all truly pocket sized 380's. For me it was the best possible combination of comfortable to handle/shoot, price, quality, reliable and easy maintenance and takedown (glock takedown and amazingly easy cleaning with Exo coated slide).

    Same here...voted other but would have checked LCP

    I've been doing a lot of researched on the .380 for my wife. All the guns mentioned so far seem to be a good choice, but I'm currently considering the CZ83. The tolerances are very tight, all steel with great accuracy reviews. Any comments on the CZ's are welcomed. I just ordered the CZ75 Shadow Target for competition.

    LCP for sure. I have had an LCP for a year now and it is easy to shoot I find it accurate for me and very easy to conceal. Love Elsie Pea.

    I'd get a Kahr 380 if I wanted a pocket 380.

    The Kahr p380 was my first CCW and it has been a favorite of mine regardless of my other purchases. That being said, I have learned that it likes good quality ammo. Given that I am picky about my wines and vodka, I can't fault it.

    Well... I went ahead and purchased a Sig P238... Have not shot it yet, I am looking forward to it. I really like the look of it and even though it's a little heavier than the other 380s out there, it' amazing how easy it is to rack the slide.. I don't care about the safety lever because I don't use it since I don't carry with one in the chamber (I know! It's just that I don't feel comfortable about it... I shudder at the thought of having an accidental shot go off).

    I chose to buy the 380 caliber because I want my wife to enjoy shooting it while I shoot my 1911 Kimber, she did not like to shoot the 9 mm, but liked the 380 I rented for her at the range.

    Anyway, I am happy with my purchase =)

    Kel Tec no problems at all, light carry weight, no jams with mine and great price.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    How could you not include the LCP its the highest selling 380 on the market?
