    seecamp .32 or NAA .32?

    Have a LCP on order and wanting to also pick up a .32 for DW. I think it should have less of a "kick". What are your thoughts on .32? The NAA weighs about 3oz more which I think is really marginal. If money were not the issue would you have a preference?

    Both are fine pocket pistols. I chose Seecamp because it is the smaller and lighter of the two pistols and the price is about the same. Ounces add up fast in the pocket pistol catagory and pretty soon you're talking real weight.

    What do you mean when you type DW?

    "Less kick" is going to be a very subjective thing. Anything Larry Seecamp recommends in ammo has some jump. Partially, I admit, the really small grip takes some getting used to. If she doesn't mind recoil, either is fine (though I liked the fit & finish on the Seecamps better) and prices are the same, if you shop.

    If recoil is the main issue, you'll have to step up in size- PPK/Sig 230-size, maybe the KelTec P-11 with moderate loads.

    Seecamp.

    FWIW, my wife's a decent shot, but not a shooter by any means. She doesn't have any problems with the Seecamp at all.

    The thing that made it for me is the mag release is not on the heel of the gun on the NAA

    Certainly the Seecamp has an edge as it is smaller and lighter than the NAA variant. In .32 I would (and did) go with the Seecamp.

    LOL, I was actually going to guess 'da wife'. Sorry I don't have any experience with either, the NAA is supposed to be the perfect balance of felt recoil and power on paper... I would just worry about ammo availability.

    Edit: I was referring 32 NAA. You were obviously asking about 32 ACP, my mistake.

    I've been shopping, where is the best deal on a Seecamp .32?

    You can usually find several for sale at any time on the big three gun sites. Used will go for around $350 to 450, new will go for $400 and up.

    Here's an example;
    GunBroker.com guns: L.W. SEECAMP MODEL LWS 32 - .32 AUTO (item: 109886999 ends: Sep-17-08 09:41:27 PM)

    You can order one directly from Seecamp. It must be shipped to an FFL of course.

    I had a NAA .380 for three days. I would have liked it, but the trigger pull is ridiculous!! A 10 pound trigger, and it takes forever to get a shot off. I couldn't double tap for the life of me and my trigger finger wore out. The .32 is the same, so I would take this into consideration when you choose. I didn't loose out to much on trade for another piece, so I was lucky. Best of luck with your choice.

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..

    No question at all - Seecamp. Period. You will always carry this even in the lightest shorts, smallest pockets. Extremely dependable.

    I have a.32 Seecamp and carry it in gym shorts that have pockets. I really love mine.
