zink - just my opinion and observation...look to buy a 9mm or larger. Most don't recommend a .380 as a primary carry. However, any gun is better than no gun if you're in a situation where one is needed. The .380 is very easy to conceal - a "pocket gun", per se - but just doesn't have the stopping power of a .38, 9mm or .45. Glock has some smaller concealable guns. Springfield XD compacts are very nice guns, too. I had a Springfield XD in .45 that I traded on a .45 1911 officers model. Most pistols can be concealed pretty well with the right holster.

Whatever you end up with - make sure you practice with it!

IMHO, stick with something compact....and stick with some calibers that will have some serious stopping power. The only two that I would consider would be the 45acp, or the 40S&W.

Now, with those caliber parameters and staying with a compact gun, your going to pay a few bucks for a gun like that. OTOH, that will more than likely be a quality gun that will last you a lifetime.

I love it. He asks for a used pocket pistol and gets told over and over again about how he should buy a non pocket pistol. I own plenty of handguns, and I carry a Kel ted 380 every day in my front pocket. It does lack the stopping power of a 45 or a 50 BMG. It will however kill a man deader then disco with good ammo. Zink if your "Loc" said more then "PA" maybe we could suggest a good gnu shop in your area too.

Be sure to check this one out.
http://www.ruger-firearms.com/products/lcr/index.html

This is a 13.5oz hammerless snubby that will handle 38 spcl +P loads.
Until I handled this one, I thot the 3" Taurus revolver in 38 spcl would be my #1 choice if I was looking into another carry gun. Mine, for now, is the 1911 Combat Commander 70 series.

This new Ruger is the rage up here in our area, guys and gals are buying them up.
