    What is your favorite mousegun?

    As the title asks, what is your favorite mousegun and for what reasons? And let's keep this from being a caliber vs caliber thread. This is personal opinion. And let's classify a mousegun as a gun that can "truly" be a pocket gun. Not a pocket that can hold a fullsize either. I call that a pocket that can fit a fullsize gun. I was able to carry a Glock 27 in my pocket, but I don't consider that a pocket gun/mousegun.

    That said, my favorite mousegun is the NAA Guardian. It doesn't matter caliber so much as I love the platform. I own the .380 ACP version, but would love to get the .32 NAA version too. I like it for its weight. It is heavier than most pocket autos of similar size, but I find it more controllable to shoot. The trigger is a bit heavy, but with a little polishing and practice, it is easily managed. And even though its not the most important thing for a self defense tool, I just love the sexy lines of the Guardian. And mine may be a little sexier than the standard Guardian since I made some modifications. It also will eat anything I feed it.

    I’ll second the Sig P-238. Sorta like a 1911 that's been washed in hot water and shrank.

    I'm a big NAA mini revolver fan. Here's my favorite pocket carry the Pug, with a target from a recent range trip.

    so not so much the caliber but overall size of the gun?

    boberg XR9

    longest barrel for slide length, built quality and bullpup design.

    not sure if this qualify as a true pocket gun but i wouldn't carry a gun much smaller if i can help it, i carry a mid sized gun when ever possible.

    It is heavy but 5+1 of .45 is pretty nice.

    Here it is next to an LCP

    I have several mouse guns. A NAA revolver, kel tec in 32acp and one in 380, SW 642, XDS45, Glock 27, PF9 and a P11. Of all of them the 642 gets carried the most. The only big pistol I own is a Glock 20sf 10mm and I'm thinking of cutting the grip down to a subcompact size since the grip is what's hard to conceal for me.
    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.

    S&W J-Frame. Most retired LEO I know carry them and I have done the same for over 4 decades. Never had one fail to go bang. I mostly pocket carry and bought about 12 pocket guns just in the last few years. I live in a retirement community and most of the senior citizens here opt for the Ruger LCP/LCR, S&W J-Frame and various 9mm guns. I have been shooting a very long time and the .32 ACP is probably the only modern caliber that I have never shot. Never even seen a gun being sold in that caliber so I cannot comment on it. I like snubnose guns. Even have one in .454 Casull. :-) These are my babies and except for the .454 Alaskan, what I carry most times.
