    I carry this KelTec PF-9 daily in a Galco pocket holster in my dress slacks for the office. Comfortable and I really like having 8 rounds of 9mm in a gun that is not much bigger that most .380's.

    This might actually RAISE the price of ammo. Supply is semi-constant and demand up would cause the price to go up.

    I would like to see more pocket autos with a manual safety on them. I have looked at the Tomcat but it is rather big by pocket standards and sub-caliber. I realize this would a little bulk but would add some safety as well (IMAO).

    I looked at one this past weekend. Seems well made, although it is a little chunky and heavier than an LCP or Kel-Tec. Then again, that may be a good thing. It is well balanced, fit and finish were top-notch; certainly a contender in this category.

    I must put my vote in for the Kahr PM9. Don't go less than 9mm. Don't know what the all the hoop-la is about the new .380s is. Had a Walther PPK several years ago. Fine weapon, just never acquired the confidence in the .380 round for protection. The PM9 is about the same size and weighs almost 7 ounces less! I have much more confidence in the 9mm round with the right hollow point.

    Of course that's just my opinion, I... could be wrong.

    The Kahr P380 will be one of the most popular pocket guns of all time, provided they keep rolling them out, and our brilliant misrepresentatives don't get alarmed about them.

    At twice the price of the P3AT or LCP, that will be an interesting challenge.

    And don't forget that it's still more expensive than the new SAO P238 from Sig as well.

    I ordered an LCP before actually holding one. Once I put it in my hand, it was obvious it was too small for my mits. Ended up with a Sig P232. 380acp should be fine, it would get my attention if it came my way.

Neat looking gun but not conducive to accurate shooting with that trigger. john

    Mouse guns just fascinate me, so I wanted to see if there were any new releases. it appears that seecamp is still the smallest around and keltec the lightest so it doesnt seem to be anything new that's ground-breaking.

    Someone earlier in this thread mentioned that Walther and Sig are coming out with new guns? Does anyone have any further info to share?

    As for this thread, it's not about caliber as I have a PM9 and I love it. I just have a fondness for small guns and I wanted to know if there is or will be anything smaller in .32acp and above that's about to be released.

    The Magnum Research is cool, but I agree that it's too chunky and heavy compared to the other players out there.
