Im looking at getting a 380 pocket pistol and am wandering what everyone else has and which ones are the best.
I have a PPK/S. It is a great gun and would be an excellent backup. However, it's a little bulky and heavy, in my opinion, to sick in a pocket. Still, if you have to right pockets, it would be a great choice.I used the Walther PPKS .380 as my pocket back up. I can't say enough about this fine little semi auto.
I was going to say the same thing. The Kahr P380 is a really nice piece!

I've tried a Ruger LCR and DB380. Both are pretty fiesty. The sights are rudimentary on the LCR. They're better on a DB380. I do not know how the 380s are these days from diamond back, though. My DB9 had some issues but I'm still waiting. People love it or hate it.50cal pocket pistol said:Im looking at getting a 380 pocket pistol and am wandering what everyone else has and which ones are the best.
I agree with Jimbo- I love my Bersa .380 Duotone!! Very very accurate, easy to break down and clean. Definitely worth looking intoJimbo said:I have a Bersa Thunder .380cc Not one single FTF, stove pipe, or failure, ever. Over 2,000 rounds threw it. I CC it when I don't want to print at all. I belly band it, and use Powerball ammo.
Yeah, I'd prefer my LCP would lock back, but I went with it because it was the only one that when in my pocket, the lip would close completely concealing the weapon. Unfortunately, the TCP was just a tad too long.I've shot the LCP, I chose the TCP (Taurus PT-738) because it locks open on an empty magazine. LCP does not; P3AT doesn't have a slide stop.
Downside is that fitted holsters are lacking at this point. It's just different enough from the LCP and P3AT that fitted holsters won't work. Universal holsters work just fine - I have a Nemesis pocket holster, Uncle Mike's ankle holster, (and a couple homebrew kydex holsters).
Only problem I've had with either LCP or TCP is that Critical Defense ammunition is a hair longer than spec due to the soft point protruding slightly. Ejecting unfired rounds, occasionally one will jam. No problem with fired rounds. Solution was to razor off the protrusion that is present on some rounds.
