    Help me choose a .380 for pocket/ankle carry.

    I want small, light-weight and the ability to add a laser down the road. I'm left handed so I want something that doesn't have a safety seeing as how most safeties are RH. So far I've looked at the LCP, S&W Bodyguard, and G42 (I think the G42 is prob too big for pocket carry). Some of the Taurus models look really good as well.

    I have a Taurus TCP. For me it's the perfect size and the trigger is great!

    Ruger LCP. I have had one for about 7 years, it always works and is about as tiny as they get.

    I have a 42. Really like it alot. If it's too big for you, take a look at Remington's RM380. Note the RM isn't a blowback gun - so it should handle pretty well!

    I just tried the Bodyguard and the 42 yesterday. The Bodyguard is a little snappy and the trigger is mushy such that it fires a second after you expect it, but could be managed with practice. I really liked the 42. Also tried my husband's new Sig P238. He thought the Sig had less recoil and I thought the Glock did. Go figure.

    Kel-Tec P3AT carries very nicely in an ankle holster. I believe they offer some sort of laser.
    I like all kinds of foreign guns.

    I don't always use missiles, but when I do it's the Minuteman III LGM-30G

    I'm new to the semi-auto handgun world. I'm not sure what you mean by "blowback" gun.
    Also, I'd like a gun that has the slide lock in the open position when the last shot is fired. The Ruger doesn't do this does it?
