I'd recommend the S & W Bodyguard .380. 6 + 1 rounds which should be enough to get you out of a situation. Very slim profile. Built in Insight laser and a solid, well placed safety.

People knock the .380 for self defense. I'd say with the recent advances in ammo the .380 is a more than capable round (if you will spend the extra dough on quality self defense rounds).

(5'8", 160lb. soaking wet btw)

Ruger LCP/LC9 are also very good choices.

Love that story! I think we'll start hearing more like this. Finally convinced my wife to get her CCL. She loves her little .22 mag. Working on moving her to a .380.

The one thing I don't like about the Bodyguard .380 is the incredibly long trigger pull. Takes alot of getting use to. I'll have to check out the trigger on the Taurus now. Thanks.

i have had a few 380's and so far the only one i was any good with was a sig p238

it is on the to get list , i have a lcp and it is about the same as the rest just good to get someone off you till you get to the truck

truth b told if i didn't like this wallet holster so much i would not have the lcp either

The sig is def. a good gun. I've tried carrying larger guns (Walther, Beretta PX4 compact 9's/40's etc.,) for better accuracy, more rounds, larger cal.'s but found them to unruly/hard to conceal on a small frame. Like you state, any gun is better than no gun at all.

The only thing I ask of my CC gun is to give me the opp. to get to a safe place or a larger gun. Suck's being small sometimes.

BTW I love my Desantis pocket holster.
