My good friend came over to the house yesterday looking for a small easy to carry and conceal gun that would be lightweight. He was thinking the S&W 5 shot airweight revolver. Good gun, I have one.
We discussed the options, pros and cons of 5 shot revolver vs. semi-auto and costs. We then went to the gun store and started looking, touching and feeling Glocks, XD's, Taurus, S&W, etc. His mind was still leaning heavily on the S&W airweight until he picked up the Keltec P-11 9mm.
He really liked the feel, small size, lightweight and larger carry capacity offered over the 5 shot revolver. The lower cost was a big extra benefit, too! The store clerk installed a belt clip on the side and away we went. We stopped off at the range and shot a box of 9mm. He's a happy camper today....

I would agree with the P2000. Great gun and I've had no problems with either of my HK's to date. Great guns, and since price isn't an issue, I'd definitely seek one out and hold it. If not the P2000, the P30 is amazing to hold as well.
