I'm wanting to get this Can www.advanced-armament.com/products/rimfire/stinger.asp.

Anyone have any thoughts on which pocket pistol I should get, i.e. a Beretta 21 or a Walther TPH?

Thanks....

I would vote for neither & go with a Kel-tec .32acp, possibly their .380acp.

I like my Beretta .25 . Friend just got a Tomcat not much bigger no range report yet though.

I feel the minimum caliber you want to shoot at someone for sef defense is 9mm. I have always felt .380 and .32 are on the wimpy side of things. I relize it is all about bullet placement.

That being said, Kel Tec make a 9mm DAO pistol that shoots great. And for $230-ish you can't beat the price.

I would use the Beretta 21 for that set up. I've owned several over the years and they have always been 100% reliable. I've had friends who've owned the Walther and it's been hit and miss with their functioning.

Personally, I'd go with the Beretta, just because I like the tip-up barrel feature.

And, it's approx .5" shorter in OAL with the suppressor than the Walther.

Ditto. Carried a P-32 in a pocket-holster all-day, every-day (whether or not I was wering my primary carry-gun) until I replaced it with a P3AT. Once properly broken in these are great little pocket-guns IMHO (I've carried a variety of pocket-guns over the past 20+ years) - incredibly thin & light.


ETA: D'oh! Just clicked on your link & saw you're talking about suppressing it. In that case, I have no experience with the TPH but have considerable experience (all good ) with the various Beretta tip-ups (although not suppressed...). Sorry!
