I'm with you. Those little Moonie guns are neat and slim; but I've carried a J frame of one sort or another as back-up/off duty for over 30 years.
A good read for anyone on the fence about which action type to get is Ed Lovette's book "The Snubby". The snubby excels at fighting from "The Hole"; another term for extreme close quarters.
The Kahr PM9s are excellent-feeling little pieces, but when I fired a friend's I found it extremely difficult to keep on target. I'm sticking with my snubby.
What is happening to me? I was an Auto guy and my last two purchases have been an SP 101 .357 mag 2 1/4 DAO and a S&W 642 for the wife... Great guns, I am carrying my revo more than my .45....
My SP 101 is the only thing that gets me to leave my .45 at home.
S&W Model 60
I carry a S&W Model 60, .357 Magnum, in either a pocket holster or IWB holster.
I like the Model 60 for the versatility of using .38 Special, .38 Special +P, and .357 Magnum cartridges.
You can't call yourself a gun guy (or gal) if you don't know how to run a revolver.
I've carried a MK40 Elite98 for years with NO ISSUES, have thousands of rounds through it without jams or FTFs... can't bad mouth the Kahrs at all they are a fine firearm... but I too find myself carrying the snubbie more often than any other. Recently picked up an ankle holster to go with my other OPTIONS....
IWB TUCKABLE gets a lot of use...
light weight pocket hoslter
another pocket holster (this was my first attempt at making one)
And my first snubbie... the SP101 in 9mm with the moon clips and fiber optic front sight...
I picked up a new Armscor 206 yesterday at a gun show in Fredericksburg, VA. Here it is with my Kel-Tecs:
I plan to take it to the range tomorrow during lunch and put 50 or 100 rounds through it. Since I haven't shot a revolver in years, I'm really looking forward to it. I also wrote up the purchase:

This holster is really nice and appears to be very thin and concealable. :congrats:

My G30 SF is at Glock for a checkup (it is my EDC), so my SP101 is te gate keeper now. I tell you, this gun is awesome and a lot less bulky than my G30SF.

Thanks for the coments...

I could not find what I wanted from a maker so I made my own... Still working on the edge treatments and designs.. This one was hand sewn, but I did pick up a nice HEAVY DUTY sewing machine to handle my next one... Someday I might even put of few of these out for others to try. So far I have only made for friends and family and one local gunshop owner...
Well, this is my first snubbie. This is a 37-2 with a nickle finish that is flawless. I love how light it is. I think I will be carrying this piece a lot. I am planning on adding a T-grip and adding a bobbed hammer.
Slow down, Denny. Your third post and you come out with this. Very nice and I agree with a Bob and a T-grip. That nickle finish is sweet.
Heres my newest snubbie a S&W M&P340 this thing is a blast to shoot I love this thing.
