Ok so here's the senario. I have a Kahr PM40 that should, fingers crossed, get back from the factory next week sometime. If it continues to be unreliable after another 250 to 300 rounds I'll be getting rid of it. So I've been look at my options for a good pocket pistol to replace it with. Hopefully I won't have to but I'm looking none the less.
I'm looking at Kel-Tec P32s and P3ATs. But they seem to have the same crap shoot reputation that Kahr has. And I've already fired a P3AT. It was crappy and the KT's are at the bottom of my list. I also like the Seecamp LWS32. The one in my local gun store is only $409 and seems to be built like a tank.
However, I'm starting to believe that in this small of a platform it might be better to go with a revolver. Especially for a pocket gun because pocket lint can get inside and clog up the works. I like the S&W 351PD. It weighs 10.5 oz and carries 7 rounds of .22 mag. I believe the .22 mag won't be that much of a step down from .38 special and 380 and is just as good as .32acp.
But because this is mostly for a BUG and will be carried as a primary on very rare occasions when concealment is a problem. I think 22 mag isn't all that bad. I like the 7 round capacity because I won't be carrying reloads for this gun and I think rapid shot placement is more improtant that a slightly more powerful round. If I do have a FTF because its a rimfire I can instantly pull the trigger again.
