    What is your definition of a mouse gun; my wife has a small S&W Scandium that weighs less than 13 oz. Mouse that roars ...
    It shoots .357 mag

    I have a KelTec P-3AT...that's a mouse gun. I carry it out in the backyard...but not as an EDC away from the house.

    many mango season ago when i worked in the keys. i carried a beretta 25 acp jetfire when i did uc work. the issue gun was to big to hide in shorts and my backup was a j-frame (still is). so the jetfire was the smallest gun that was around that would go bang every time you pulled the trigger. it was "pocket carry and have fun", no holster. now days most peoples make fun at small guns like the 25 acp. they do not like a 25 acp and/or a .22 for defense. But I do not see any one volunteering to get shot by one. now days on the weekend and off duty i carry the kel tec p3at, looks like i moved up to a bigger size. a mouse gun in hand is better than two 45acp back home or in the car.

    I luv'em too. I constantly carry a colt mustang or a NAA .22 mag revolver, and sometimes both at the same time.
    I am working on a Kahr CW9 to compliment the other two. I prefer the .45acp but mousing beats the big guns when they are not on my person.

    Mouse guns? Yeah, I like the package. Don't like the loss of effectiveness that can come with them ... hence the general "derision" they create in the minds of folks who use defensive firearms.

    I would view it as anything generally accepted to be outside the group of firearms deemed effective firepower in most circumstances. Meaning, very small caliber or limitation in the number of rounds that effectively limits the firearm's ability to perform in a situation.

    Doesn't mean folks haven't been stopped by 22LR, .25, .32 or others, but it does mean that general opinion seems to stop accepting a firearm on face value as "effective" at about the .380 or .32 range.

    Of course, size alone has nothing to do with size/power of a bullet. An acquaintance had me shoot his .44mag Derringer awhile back. Stout little unit, that. But, it was a two-shot beast, for all the power in the round. And it was small. I'd class it as a "mouse" gun if it weren't for the simple fact that the round was absolutely powerful enough to get the job done. In almost any other smaller caliber, though, I'd probably class a two-shot Derringer as a "mouse" gun.

    I don't see anyone volunteering to get stabbed by a 1" swiss army knife either, but I wouldn't carry one for defensive purposes. Granted, it's obviously better than nothing....

    I carry a P3AT with a spare mag as a primary 8-10 hours a day, 4-5 days a week. Funny thing is, I've never felt under gunned. Even though some days I get in minor to heated conflicts with men who are armed with a lot of pride, hammers, screwdrivers, and razor knives among other potential weapons.

    Would I prefer to carry a 1911? YES, and as soon as I get off work you'll find one on my hip. But at work it's not an option and that's why I love mouse guns.

    I'd rather have somebody carry a rodent gun than no gun at all.
    I personally would rather have one than a BIC pen given a choice of possible self-defense tools.

    I've always liked the idea of having a mouse gun for easy carry in situations when I dress really light. But I never liked the idea of a .25 or .32 (or a .22 ) caliber in a self defense tool.
    So up to recently, I resisted getting any of the "little ones".

    But I finally joined the ranks of mouse gun carriers when the Rohrbaugh came along.
    Mouse gun size but in 9mm, I find that I'm now carrying the little guy more than I ever thought I would, and I say that after being used to my stainless Commander as my "primary" carry pistol for quite some time.

    Now, I have to admit that the Rohrbaugh 9S Stealth has become my "primary" carry pistol and I only pack the Commander when I'm wearing a jacket in the winter or a heavy sweater (not often in Houston)

    I pocket carry a LCP everyday at work. Anything else seriously gets in my way, and since I work near my rural home, I feel pretty safe nonetheless.
    When my environment changes to one of concern, I replace my pocket carry with a G27 or IWB Sig.

    Man, if I ever find out that I've been shot by a mouse gun, I'm gonna be pissed!!!
