Well... I carry a PK380 in a shitty nylon holster IWB with athletic shorts and pants wearing well fitted t-shirts as my daily.. Kind of why I'm looking at something a little smaller, like the PF9. Not saying I'm discounting the p3at completely as a pocket pistol.. Still interested in one of those too!

Don't know how to break this to you man but I don't need no ******' glock or "manly" caliber to take care of myself. I don't care how hopped up on PCP someone is, you shoot them in the chest or face it doesn't matter if you're holding a .25acp or .50ae.. They're fucked either way. The smaller the caliber, the smaller the system, the more rounds you can carry.

Caliber doesn't mean ****. Want a real world example? Ever shot a squirrel with a .17hmr? Might as well have been a hand grenade.

This is what keeps the free world free next to my ***** .380 acp.. Just a ***** little .22, amirite?


Btw, I Load my own .380 range rounds for $0.04/round. Whats your 40 caliber cost you to shoot?

I remember the rifle you cut down a couple years ago.. have been thinking about getting one of these for home defense:


Think I like Keltec's products?

Later, when I feel like it, I'll strip the pistol down and clean / oil it. Takes me 3 minutes to break down and fully clean & lube the thing. Strip it apart takes 10 seconds, run a brush and patches through the barrel takes another 20 seconds, small scrub brush and solvent around the slide and lower frame, drop some oil in the lower frame, oil in the slide action. Run a freshly oiled patch through the barrel, barrel and spring back in the slide, install slide back on frame. Small bit of oil on a fresh rag and wipe the outside of the slide down then remove excess with lint free rag. Insert freshly loaded magazine and back into my holster.
I just want to shoot the thing, and when I'm done, put it away until next time.

What I am wearing and where I am going determines what I carry.

Dress slacks and a shirt, I might carry the Ruger LCP w/crimson trace and Cor-Bons. Jeans and a t-shirt, Kimber and Hydro-Shok. Out on a friend's ranch hunting pigs, the GP-100 w/ Remington JHP .357.

A weapon is a tool. Different tools for different applications. Besides, doesn't matter what caliber you're carrying if you can't hit the target...
