looking for a 380 pocket pistol

This is a discussion on looking for a 380 pocket pistol within the Non-XD Handguns forums, part of the Other Handgun Talk category; I was over the Diamondback and Taurus forums, and looks like both forums cleaned their acts with the TCP and DB. The 380 Bodyguard forum ...

looking for a 380 pocket pistol

I was over the Diamondback and Taurus forums, and looks like both forums cleaned their acts with the TCP and DB.
The 380 Bodyguard forum is packed with complains, and the Kahr 380 runs about $ $480.I like the Kahr, but the TPC at half the price, not many problems and life time guaranty is calling my name
Opinions?

Thanks

I've own the Taurus TCP for a few months now and have put about 400 rnds through it. It has shot great and seems very accurate at short range(7 yds and in). I did one one problem, the disassembly pin began to move out of its hole while firing, this happened at around the 200 rnds mark. Sent it to Taurus CS and they replaced the pin and the retention spring. Took 11 days round trip at no cost(love the warranty,also sent me an extra mag). It has been fine since.
I can recommend it.
That's my little guy in a Blackhawk #2 that i modified so it would wrap around the grip and that barrel was moved to the bottom on the holster.

The ruger LCP is popular



As is the Kel Tec P3AT




But I love the Sig 238, although pricey

I got the LCP, but saw the Sig last weekend, $600+ but looked and felt great.

Here is a shot of my LCP with Crimson Trace

I have the Ruger LCP with a Crimson Trace in my back pocket now. It lives there very nicely thank you and the CT is a HUGE boon to accurate shooting. It enables me to shoot very accurately to 50' which is the limit of the range that I shoot at. I often carry an XD 45c or HK 45c, but the LCP is always with me no matter what I'm wearing.

Unless you absolutely love DAO, it's hard not to like a Sig 238...any of the 6 choices that they offer.

I had a DB380 that I bought in May. I'd stay VERY far from them.

My wife has a LCP. Its eaten everything put through it. I'm getting a P238 in place of the DB. No other pocket pistol I've shot is as smooth. I also considered a TCP and the Micro Desert Eagle, but I'm pretty set on the sig.

I saw the all black P238 for $499 a few weeks back at Academy sporting goods. Ever since Ive been thinking I need to pick one up. I shot several KelTecs and LCP's and I cant say anything bad about either of them.

Good call. When I was shopping for a pocket gun, I had the opportunity to rent a handful of different 380's all of which were from very good manufacturers. I kept reaching back to the Sig because of its trigger.
