    im just curious about what opinions you guys have on what is the best itty bitty gun to have. i dont mean itty bitty like the fit in the palm of your hand deals. i mean more along the size of a kel-tec p-32. i have my G21 for carry but alot of times that gun is just too big, bulky, and heavy to conceal well. so im thinking about laying my hands on a little guy to put in a pocket holster on those occasions. im going to set my limit at $350 for the most i want to spend even though i know i almost always end up going over my budget if i come across something that i really like. so lay into me! favorite pocket guns! doesnt necessarily have to be a semi-auto either.

    Focus, I highly recommend the CZ83 for your this particular purpose.

    the P32 tucks nicely into my dress slacks when out in a suit. I put one of the belt clips on it and put it on before the belt so the belt covers the clip. This has proven to be a very good way to carry in extremely light clothes. Since I live in the desert portion of the states the slacks are very light and don't conceal any size of frame very well. Never been a fan of carrying in the jacket since it gets left on the back of chairs when on the dance floor.

    S&W 642. Stuff it with your favorite +P, wrap it with a Desantis Nemesis and drop it in your pocket. If it's cold, just toss it in your coat pocket. Should things get ugly, you can empty it from inside the pocket.:cool:

    I now carry a Kel-Tec P32 and I'm very confortable with it. However it is a matter of preferance and my own experience.

    I'm very happy with my P 32 Keltec. I carry it every day. I have a couple of P3ATs, a Beretta Tomcat, Naa Guardian .32, mini revolvers, J frame 38s, and most other small guns.

    My kel tec .32 with the extended magazine for those three extra rounds. For the rare time I wear a jacket in Florida I use my wifes 642 Airweight.

    Good suggestions above and the CZ83 is my favorite. I would stay away from diamondbacks. They have a design flaw that allows the firing pin to remain loose in the Channel until you release the trigger. This can set up for a slam fire but also causes feed issues b/c the pin is allowed to protrude the breech face occasionally if you limp wrist just enough.

    I just bought a Sig P238 yesterday. I have not fired it yet but it became my favorite the minute I saw it in the gun shop, a few months ago.

    Good gun. Quite accurate for as being as small as it is.
