Default Pocket Pistol Advice

I've been thinking a lot about getting a new carry piece, I currently have a S&W 642 with a Clip Draw, which I love due to it's simplicity and the assurances that accompany having a revolver. That said, I really like the pocket .380's and the small 9mm's. I'm interested in your opinions from those of you who have any pocket pistols.

Thanks!

Default 380

i am waiting on my new s&w body guard 380 to come in. i have shot the ruger lcp and the kel-tec. i didnt care for either one of those. the body guard feels alot better in my hand. friend of mine just bought a diamond back 380 and he will be shooting it today. Another friend has a kel-tec 9mm and that gun is pretty nice. if i was going for a 9mm ccw it would be that one. hopefully my gun will be in soon and i will let you know how i like it.

I like the Kel Tec P3AT, 380, just the lightest and easiest for me to carry. OR The Kel Tec P9 the lightest 9mm would be good too

i've bought 2 PF-9s from forum members. liked the first one so much, when a 2nd one came up at a good deal i jumped on it. it's not a match shooter by any means. the things you may have heard about the trigger (long travel, etc) are true. but for an close encounter ccw i liked the thought of a 9mm over a .380. it shoots fine at 5, 10, even 15 yds. there's better out there but for the money i'm very satisfied.

I carry the Ruger 380 LCP and love it. Light, small, accurate (2 in. chin shots at 15 yds). I'm not saying it is the best out their in a 380, but a good ccw.

Another vote for the LCP. I started out with a 642 and although I like it fine, it's a little big for front pocket carry. I like it in a jacket pocket though.
I haven't had any problems at all with the LCP.
Not recommending it either way but just FYI, the Diamondback is on sale at Academy this week for $229. That's cheap.
