Mine would have to be my kel-tec p11.Smaller and lighter than a glock 26,holds 10+1 and is dependable,at less than half the price of the glock.

Beretta model 84F .380ACP with 13+1 rds. and a spare mag...Remington Golden Sabre 102-gr. ammo. Pocket Rocket is better than an Empty Pocket, no?

Mine is the G26. Some people will berate the 9mm, but loaded with +P it will definitely ruin somebody's day from the business end if need be. Pretty accurate for it's size too and have a few options to modify it yourself. Am guilty of being a Glockster (only 4 but more to come in the future).

I have a SIG 239 9mm that I really like, carries well in a coat pocket, BUT to me a true pocket pistol is just that, will fit in a front pocket of your Levis'. The SIG just won't do that. A friend has the Kel-Tec, cant hit anything past 15 yards but it sure does tote fine in any pants pocket you can imagine. Horrible trigger too, but for the cost & size nothing else compares. It's pretty darn reliable, feeds about anything. Had a Ruger SP-101, but just to heavy. Another choice would be to find a USED Smith & Weasel .38 snub (hammerless). Just don't go buy a new one as they are traitors!

Had a Kahr MK9 Micro. Liked how it looked at first but upon closer inspection found air bubbled and machine marks. Sent it back to Kahr and after some coercing, they sent me a new receiver. Problem was that the "new" receiver was worse than the first. Some machinist probably got chewed out for his shotty work and took it out on me. The second receiver was actually thicker on the left side than the right. Traded that piece of crap in for a Beretta. Damn Moonies!

A good pocket pistol has to be 4 things. Small,reliable,acurate, and capable of multiple reloads without jamming.To me nothing will ever beat a East German Makorov. The little 95gn bullet is hotter than the 380 and is everything you could ask for.It is built on Walther machinery and has a few vamps that make it more reliably than the 500.00 dollar Walther. The best thing about it you can buy 2 mak's for that price and ammo is dirt cheap.

I carry a North American Arms 22 Mini Revolver. It holds 5 rounds of 22LR, it stainless steel, and lifetime warranted. It fits in my watch pocket of my blue jeans. I happen to be short statured and it is the only pistol that I can pack even when I an wearing cut off jean shorts. I carry the NAA mini almost all hours of the day, even when I take a nap. My main cc weapon (in addition to the NAA mini) is a Norinco 1911 copy in 45 auto and a Bianchi leather shoulder rig. -JmE-

My favorite sub-compact sportsartillary is a Ruger SP101. No flame intended, but KelTecs are one of the few guns I wouldn't reccomend to anybody. They are the gun that made me the snob I am today. I had a P11 and it was one of the biggest letdowns of my gunbuying life, and I was once suckered into a Tec9! It rusted, was innaccurate as hell, and had the worst trigger of any gun I ever fired.

S&W 442 The ultimate pocket pistol. (Yea, the titanium might be better, but what kind of idiot would buy a new Smith and Wesson?)

I for one carry a [b][i]small, easily concealable handgun[/b][/b] of large capacity and of large caliber. My pistol of choice is the Glock 27. It is utterly reliable and has more inherrent accuracy than I am capable of taking full advantage of although I do shoot it very, very well. It is light, small, powerful and easy to work with. It eats anything but prefers the 165 gr. JHP load from [url]www.proload.com[/url] I do not beleive in using "anti" terminology when referring to something that I hold so dear: my rights to defend myself and my family and other third party persons who appear to be in emminent danger of serious bodily injury and possibly death............thank you very much!

Gus, if you have a hot weather gun and one for spring/fall, you better get a winter gun. And that would be a good opportunity to accessorize with a belt and shoes to match!

Beretta .22 or Makarov. A small .45 (glock)? or light .357 revolver (after Smith goes out of bidness) is next if I ever move to a state with legal CC.

Seecamp .32 or when I want "big" a Charter Arms .44 Bulldog. I have other carry types in .38 Special, 40 S & W and of course .45 ACP but they just don't seem to get the carry times that these do.
Link Posted: 8/7/2001 6:01:13 PM EDT
My new favorite easily concealable handgun is the P32. 3" at 25 yds is better than my S&W duty gun (no choice in that). Once it get's cooler I'll carry both my 27 or 23 and the P32. The gun you carry when you're not carrying a gun.

CZ 83 - i know 380 isnt ideal...but better than nothing. i believe that the range of good defence ammo in the US for 380 outweighs the little extra ummph that the 9 makarov puts out. plus its small enough to keep in shorts and tee shirt, accurate as my fullsize beretta (to an extent) and so far, utterly reliable...*knock on wood* just my thoughts

Had a S&W 640-1 tricked out by Weigand with an executive package. When my stepson became a Philly LEO I gave it to him. Will have to say my Sig P-245 now.

Two possible answers to your question: 1) When I'm carrying "small" I carry a Walther/Manurhin "PP" in .38. 2) When I'm carrying "Large" I carry an Ed Brown "Commander" in .45. Plenty of excellent other choices out there. Choose something "you" are comfortable with - something in which you have confidence. Probably time to remind myself that we "fight the way we train" - virtually any decent firearm in the hands of a skilled practitioner is going to be alright - any firearm in the hands of the unskilled/untrained/uncomfortable is going to be questionable - at best. Time for me to believe my own B/S and get back to the range !

I like my Firestar .40 a lot also. I also like real metal and it ends up being a tad heavy at times. I tend to carry it when I go where I don't feel "safe", somehow i doesn't feel so heavy then.

Glock 27 with Pearce +1 extension. It's hard to beat 10 rounds of 40 S&W in a pistol that fits in the palm of your hand.

GLOCK 29 10mm compact 10+1 in size that is slightly larger than the Glock 9mm-26/40S&W-27, and S&W640 357Mag. Here are the numbers from an old Glock brochure. Any Glock appoximate MUZZLE energy(foot-pounds)/velocity(feet per second any BBL lenght: 9mm 369/1180, 45ACP 302/820, 40S&W 386/984, the 357 S&W Mag is not in the brochure, but according to a Wincheste ammo brochure, the most powerful in that line up is 557/1180. The 10mm as listed by Glock is 575/1230 . Some people are going to definitely notice the difference between "cover and concealment."
