    Colt Gov't Pocketlite and Mustang .380's

    With all the bling and glitter of all the new minis and micros, I still see the little Colt's as, don't get much better than this! Accuracy, good sights, lite enough for comfort, and cocked & locked. My autos get trigger work if needed, and I like the SA accuracy over long DAO pulls. Woops, I did buy two new blingy minis since Jan!

    The mustangs definitely have a certain appeal. They are pretty expensive though comapred to the current minis out there.

    That's because they've been discontinued for about 10 years and are becoming collectors items like every other out of production Colt handgun.

    I wish Sig would get the lead out on the new 238.

    Personally I prefer the steel frame Mustang +II and Gov't .380 over the alloy framed versions.

    They really are a joy to shoot compared to some of the other pocket .380s.

    The Pocketlites are expensive (and surely the price will continue to climb), no question, but our experience with the Kel-Tecs, Walthers, Sigs et. al. is the Pocketlite accuracy & usability (Sig232 is a great pistol, trigger is awful in D/A and the heel mag release renders this model un-usable for us) is superior to anything else in that size class (either .25, .32, .380). We'll take our Colt Pocketlite over any of the other options. Just our $.02 your mileage may vary. We're also looking forward to the Sig238 which we've heard won't be available before Sept-Oct 09.

    I love the classic Colt Pocketlite

    I still want one of the new Sig 238s when they finally hit the stores and .380 ammo is available again
