I am currently going back and forth between:
1) the LCP [ loaded with 1100 fps 90 gr Gold Dot] with laser in the shirt pocket
2) PF9 [loaded with 100 gr Hinterberger +P+] in the coat pocket.

If I visit that hive of scum and villainy [Seattle] I carry a 45 in one pocket and a 9mm in the other.

KW, Thinking you're gonna like that LCP---even though it has the much hated MD.
Sorry for booging your thread earlier. However, I learned some things from it and the other thread. Learned that the percieved evils of MD is minimal, but come resale time it'd be easier to hawk a non-MD handgun because of the rumoured evils. Sorta like the Push Feed vs. CRF schools of thought. (Anybody have any proof of anyone actually getting stomped because a PF rifle failed to feed? Doubtful.)
But in the world of handguns it seems to be common thinking that one round in the pipe that will go bang is better than a disabled gun. Just wondering where the spare rounds are being carried if the magazine is already dropped/lost/stolen. Suppose I should carry my Glock (concealed of course) with a spare mag or two and a pocketful of loose rounds so it'll still be functional single fire when I lose my magazines?
Just funnin here.
Congrats on your new toy/tool. Betting that if you ever send it down the road it won't be because of the Magazine Disconnect.

Yes, it's been an interesting thread. If I really wanted to stir the pot I'd challenge everyone to post their top choice in a self defense load -- and prove why it's the best -- for each of the common self defense calibers. That argument could go on for years, but it's an important one.

After all, it's the bullet that really gets the job done. I think I'll do a little testing with Hornady's Critical Defense 380 load for starters... I've been watching quite a few test videos lately and was surprised to see how often certain highly touted JHPs plug up with clothing material and fail to expand... or how often Rem Golden Sabers shed their jackets (despite having a great street reputation)... etc.

The more you study all the studies and analyze all the variables, ad infinitum, the more you're drawn full circle to the timeless wisdom of old Wyatt: Accuracy is everything.


If you're fixin' to put a hole in something,
make it a hole to remember.

Desert Eagle



Micro desert eagle that is.
Failed a few times in first 100 rounds but flawless since even after slide cracked. Magnum Research customer service was excellent in repairing under warranty. After 1,ooo rounds thru it now, have no issues relying on it. Much more solid feel than LCP's and Keltec's.

442, but if I were to get another, I probably would lean toward the 642 to negate finish issues.

Back in Texas, for good!
After working on my P238 - strengthening the recoil spring and reducing the excessive extractor tension, it got through 50 rounds with no failures. Much more testing is required, but that's way better then it was doing smile It's looking promising after all smile

The LCP does NOT have a magazine disconnect feature.

I've got a keltec P3AT, kahr CM9, and a springfield XD subcompact. I carry the keltec 90% of the time and its in my front pocket. And its very reliable.

41mag is correct, LCP has no magazine disconnect. I have run about 250 rounds thru mine with out a glich, including some of my handloads. Point and shoot is excellent, accuracy is very good for a small gun. There's a reason Ruger took over 40,000 orders for them the year they were introduced at the Shot Show!

The 380 was a common police and military round in Europe for many years, and probably still is in many countries. No, not the best defense round, but can't always conceal the 1911 too well! To call the 380 worthless is taking it a bit too far, IMO

The more I carry and shoot it, the more I like it.
I can forget I have it on me.

I have never seen one of these. Looks very good. How's it to shoot? 11oz is less than the LCP I believe. Recoil manageable? Can I ask how much these sell for? Thanks

DB9 looks like it may suit the "If Glock would build a single-stack, mini 9...." crowd.
May have to check one out.

I found the LCP would sting the web of my thumb
AND it was only a .380.

I thought the DB might as well, but haven't found that to be the case.
My only modification has been sanding the inside , bottom of the trigger guard. Below the trigger. Mine was rough and irritate my index.

But so did my G 20. Some 240 and then 600 grit smoothed that right up.

I wish the DB would remain open on empty. My only complaint after 5 boxes of reloads.
