    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    I have both the KT .380 and the S&W 637...I wouldn't part with either one. Both have a place and purpose in my arsenal.
    You will regret selling the ealily concealed KT.

    That said, everyone should have a snubbie. The .38 caliber certainly gives one more serious firepower. If you can only have one...then it's the snubbie.
    For what you're going to get for a used KT, I'd keep it and work a few extra hours to enable your keeping both.

    Stay armed...think about it...stay safe!

    Sorry to disagree, but I'm about to sell off my S&W Model 342 .38 Special! I recently acquired a Seecamp LW380 and can't say enough good things about it. Extremely reliable, well made and tiny, but it carries a total of seven rounds of .380 ACP. Why would I want to carry more bulk with only five rounds of .38 Special?

    J frames

    I have 3 J frames - the airweight 642 carries the easiest, but the steel 36 and 60 are easier to shoot. The 642 can be pocket carried, however.

    Hey pulicords!! Welcome! Good to see you here, I'm used to seeing you at O.com. This is a good site, you'll like it.

    I have a Kel-tec .380 that now spends most of it's time in the safe because I switched to a j-frame. Mine is bobbed, not shrouded, and not a .38. It's been rechambered to 9x23, though it's usually stoked with Federal 9BPLE 9mm +P+ or .38 Super. It's my BUG and off duty piece. If I were you I'd keep the .380 and add a j-frame. The P3ATs are great to carry when nothing else will fit.

    Here's mine, I know most of you have seen it before but I like showing it off!
    Never forget. Never forgive.

    Thanks for the welcome! This seems like a good site too.

    I really like your set up (I used to carry a S&W Model 940 9mm revolver as a backup), but I'm really sold on the Seecamp. Perhaps I wouldn't be so quick to sell my Model 342 if I had the latest generation of CT grips (like your's). With the first generation (hard polymer) grips, recoil during qualification left my hand aching for days! I'll be keeping my model 640 J-frame, but I really doubt it will leave the safe as long as I have my LWS380.
