The P-32 is actually what I'm moving up from, I covered that in my OP.

Update:

I narrowed it down finally to the Ruger LCP II and the Kahr CW380

I handled both and really liked both...BUT...just could not get comfortable with the shorter, single-action trigger of that LCP II as a chambered pocket carry pistol. The Kahr has a buttery smooth and longer DAO trigger which ultimately sold it for me, plus real replaceable sights.

My LGS has a CW380 on order now for me.

I don't care for a 380 and I went for the original Rohrbaugh R9s Stealth in 9 mm. It looks just like the Remington RM380 It's a great pocket pistol. Does it hurt to shoot? Damn right. Is it expensive? Damn right. Is it light weight and easy to conceal? Damn right. Do you want to go to war with it? Hell no. But neither do you want to with a 380.

If it hurts to shoot, then you aren't practicing much and I'd rather be sending .380 toward a bad guy that I shoot well than 9mm that I don't.

I really liked my Kahr CW380, but I could never get it to run right. If yours runs, it’s a great little .380 imo.

CW380 is a solid choice, that's what is in my front pocket right now.

First I will admit to not reading all the posts. Second to comply with all forum traditions and skip what the poster was originally talking about and go to something else. I rarely pocket carry but when I do the slight size difference to have the Kahr PM9 to me is great. A better and cheaper cartridge. More choices. The Kahr is a very accurate handgun with a nice smooth trigger that is not too light for pocket carry. Lastly very nice to shoot. I originally sold a J Frame and replaced it with the Kahr because practice with the J Frame was not much fun.


Why are we encouraged not to judge all Muslims by the lunatics BUT are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the very few lunatics? Ironic?

Picked up my new CW380 this past Friday and wow is that SOB a tight little thing.

I can barely rack the slide on this pistol, no wonder Kahr advises people to use the slide release only to charge a round.

Same for my CM9. For that Kahr also recommends a 200-rd break in period.
