    I voted for "other", as in the Taurus m380 mini revolver, as it has been utterly reliable with everything I've fed it. FMJs, Hollow Points, Speer, Federal, Hornady, all fired reliably and hit the target. I simply couldn't be happier! This weapon serves exclusively as a backup to my Glock 26 and/or my Diamondback DB9. As much as I prefer 9mm semiautomatics, I like a revolver's simplicity and ease of use. That being said, no .380 "mouse gun" will EVER completely replace a 9mm pistol as my primary sidearm! As I see it, this is the best of both
    worlds: a 9mm, striker-fired DAO semiautomatic, supplemented by a miniature revolver (chambered in .380, a caliber I already have plenty of on hand) and keeping my ammo variety to a bare minimum. It's a win-win!

    The best .380 pocket pistol is the Sig P938 9mm.
    The best 9mm pocket pistol is the Springfield XDs .45acp.

    I like the LCP for the price and size, but in my opinion the Sig P238 is more accurate and easier to shoot. I own the LCP, bought the Sig for my wife.

I've shot one and it was fine, reminiscent for the Colt Pocketlite, but is a bit larger which could be important if compactness is desired.

    I do my very best to leave the P3AT home in favor of something larger, more accurate, and more effective. It stays home a lot.
    I'm with you. I prefer the P-11 in 9mm If you're going to carry a small pistol, make it a powerful one.

    I PC a Bersa Thunder CC. Very accurate, light, affordable, reliable, and dependable handgun. Unfortunately, only holds eight shots, which is why its my secondary.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
