    If you're ever looking for the ultimate in compactibility, I don't think anything on the planet can beat the little NAA .22 revolvers with the fold-up grip.
    I swear its about as inconspicuous as a pocket knife....kinda works like one, too! ;)

    ...and not to assist in that thread skew, but would you happen to know how the Seecamp 380 compares to the NAA Guardian 380?

    According to seecamp website empty weight is 10.5 oz vs 17.35 oz for guardian. Also Slide width is .725 vs .908 for naa. Capacity is greater with naa though. Some reports I saw say seecamp is picky about ammo fwiw.

    Some size comparisons to some pistols mentioned in this thread FYI:

    ...re naa revolver size above, note that 22lr frame is much smaller than 22 mag frame

    I am partial to my HK p2000sk.

    Harder to conceal but shoots as well as a full-size for me.

    I've wanted a .32 Seecamp since back in the day scalpers were getting $900-1000. I would much rather have the real thing over the NAA clone for the Euro-style butt mag release over the typical Browning location. I've found the button gets depressed too easily in the pocket, not so much with the Euro-latch.

    Oh my, that is quite a bit of difference!
    Thanks for posting those pics. Really puts things into prospective.
    ...btw, the NAA .22 revolver I mentioned was the LR version, which (as you said), is a shorter length, but also , I mentioned the one with the fold-up grip in particular (I understand the folding grip is an option to a few of their models).
    With the grip folded up, the LR version would be an extremely compact carry.

    Since no one has mentioned it, probably because it is a compact and not a subcompact, I may as well throw in my two cents. I have an FNS-C in 9mm that is easy to carry, reliable and accurate, and well within your cost parameters.
