    SR22 size and style, .380 or 9mm power...

    I really like the look and feel of my wife's SR22. The grip size is just right for me in a sub compact size. I'd love to carry something similar, but not in .22. I like a DA/SA trigger the most, and so many sub compacts and micros are DAO or striker fired. My current edc is a Sig p250 sc in 9mm. It's a great gun, I also have the .45 FS kit that I carry from time to time. I love the trigger and capacity of them both. But sometimes I want something even lighter and smaller. Most likely this will be ankle carried as a BUG.

    I've rented the LCP, LC9, and a Kahr PM9. On all of them the grip was either too short, too narrow, or both for my liking. The PM9 was my favorite of the 3, but the grip felt too boxy for me. I don't like the PPK look, want something with a more tactical look.

    So what other pistols should I look in to?

    By the guns you like I would suggest, PPS, CZ 75 P01, HK2000sk, sig p239 any of these would serve you well the actual guns you mentioned IMHO are to finicky to CC sorry did not see you wanted to ankle carry, I would think a J frame would be best. I have never done that but many I served with did an used jframes.

    Sounds like you need to look into a Walther PPK. Well, on second thought it's not very tactical looking but at the end of the day does that really matter?

    While the PPK is a cool looking gun, it's not the look I'm into right now. I know looks aren't really that important, but that seems to be one of the first things many of us look into.

    I have considered a J frame. Seems like it would fit the carry location perfect and offer plenty of power.

    For me there's just something about that SR22. If Ruger made an SR380 I'd own one in a second.

    In .380, I'd suggest taking a look at a Walther PK380.

    I recently had the opportunity to shoot one, and I was rather impressed--much to my surprise.

    It's the same size as the P-22, which is very similar to the SR-22...

    The dirt factor is something I hadn't really considered. I'm a mechanic by day, a pizza delivery guy by night, and am always into some sort of outdoor work or activity in the meantime. I don't have to go looking for dirt, it finds me.

    You think a Jframe is a better looking gun then a PPK?!?!

    Have you considered pocket carry for your BUG? Sounds like it might keep the gun cleaner for you. Plus, easier to access while on the move...though ankle carry is nice while seated.

    I think ankle carry would be less than ideal while delivering pizzas... pocket carry would be way faster.
