    What pistol next??????

    I am looking to buy a new pistol soon. I like small pistols and have about a grand to spend. I already have Seecamps, Rohrbaughs, LCP's, NAA's, kel-tecs, and a couple others. Is there any other "high-end" small pocket type auto out there to be had. I don't have a LM-4 (or the money to get one). Any suggestions????????? I will be picking up a Kahr P380 when they hit the shelves but that won't be for a couple more months.

    I have looked at a Springfield EMP but it was a little large for my collection. I also looked at a couple Bond Arms that were pretty cool but not an auto.

    Pm-9 is an awsome firearm! If I had the cash, thats what I would have gotten instead of my CW9,but they wanted almost 700$ for the pm9. Not much bigger than a Keltec p3at

    I would venture to say that you have pretty well run the gamut of high end pocket pistols being produced today. However in the discontinued used pistols department I can think of one that has not been mentioned yet and thats the Colt Pocket Nine pistol. A truly fine pistol if you can find one. Try one of the gun auction websites or try searching Cabela's gun library online. Although you mentioned that you had a " couple others ", I did not see the Beretta Tom Cat .32 acp listed. If you don't have one already, these are good pocket pistols and come in stainless too!

    The CZ83 .380 holds 12, yes 12 rounds of .380 in the magazine. The price is not high end but the blood line and the performance are "high end."

    CZ makes nice guns for a working man's price. If you don't have the obligatory 'Bond' PPK they the CZ83 might be your go.

    How about a Sig P232? Very concealable, reliable. Can be had with night sights, stainless, etc.

    Pretty heavy pocket pistol....

    I was going to mention the Kahr P.380 but you hit it at the end.
    Now I realize you said semi-autos but have you considered a S&W Airweight J-frame?

    I have a couple J-frames, and like them, but as of late i've been hooked on nice pocket autos.
    Thanks for all the suggestions. I have my eyes on a pocketlite. Maybe I can score one soon.

    I also would like to get a Budischowsky TP 70 one day.

    Kahr MK9

    I like the Kahr MK9, which is certainly small enough dimensionally to fit in a pocket, although it is all steel and heavy for its size (24 ounces empty). But you didn't mention having one yet, and it is a great 9mm for discreet IWB carry.

    it sounds like a quest for a collection of high quality pocket guns, so, I would vote for the Mustang or an original early model Belgian Baby Browning. Now that's a pocket pistol...or a Colt Vest Pocket model.

    Hey, it's just money!
