    I have the sig p 238 and am very happy with the look, accuracy, etc.

    What is your favorite pocket carry pistol?

    I pocket carry an LCP, it's great! So small and light, and flat. I was debating for a really long time between a Kel-Tec PF9 or LC9 and an LCP. On paper it looks like not much of a difference, but in person, there is a good size difference which really matters.

    I'm rather partial to my Kel-Tec P32. Have had it for years, it's proven to be reliable, and I shoot it well. I don't imagine ever replacing it. If it craps out eventually, it carries a lifetime warranty and I've heard nothing but good things about Kel-Tec's customer service (though I've never had to use it).

    If I'm carrying a pocket gun, it's the Taurus TCP. It's the only "pocket gun" I have. I bought it 2nd hand and it's been extremely reliable. In a pocket holster I hardly know I've got it with me.
    Prefer to carry the .45, though.

    I have a Colt Mustang. The Pocketlite model would be better but if it has to go in a pocket then this is the one. Oh, those Euro clones are ok too... :)

    I've got a sig p238 that I like very well but I'm skeptical about .380, so a couple weeks ago I picked up a Diamondback DB9. Same size as p238, 6+1, DA in 9mm.
