    I'm sure enough in myself and my capabilities that I don't feel the need to overcompensate.

    :notworthy: That statement doesn't surprise me. Hopefully you at least practice with your pocket rocket. Though it wouldnt surprise me if you did not, most do not. I dont care what anyone carries but you did ask.

    Those are not unequivocal examples applicable to every situation.

    No reason for the clerks in that scenario to use mouse guns. Concealment or ease of carry not issues.

    Kinda want the little Kel-Tec.

    But right now, that's just another caliber to hunt down.

    And they'll probably still be available if the Commies take over.

    Yes it is...but try firing 200 rounds in one. Then do 200 rounds through a Walher PP or PPK. I think you will see a difference.

    S&B 7.65 is great ammo. The energy level is .380acp territory...

    And which would you want when you can no longer beg, borrow or steal 9mm, .45acp ammo? Sure you can reload-but reloads in SD/HD is begging for trouble...

    And how many guns are in 10mm? And what if your wife needs to use the10mm HD gun?

    ...and notice he didn't include .22LR as an option, even though plenty of people have been killed by it.

    Just went to Bass Pro. The only handgun ammo on the shelf was .32 auto and 5.7.

    Rim lock if using hollowpoints in a regular magazine.

    Haven't experienced rimlock in three different jhp loadings thus far with beretta 81. Granted, the tomcat is a single stack

    I had a Tomcat Inox. Beretta says do not use any ammo with a muzzle velocity over 130.

    That is the solid truth...! I used to have a friend that would go to the big city, and always find trouble, he would tell folks who pulled a gun in his 'scrapes,' ... "go ahead and shoot, I don't care.."


    There are bad guys who don't care, and BG's who have been shot before, and are still to stupid to care, and your right, it just flat does NOT scare them enough to bother them, whether you got a cannon or a mouse gun. Point being, in that moment, I would rather have the cannon! ;)

    Once used a Berreta Tomcat for a pocket pistol and now use a G27 .40 cal.

    The 32 is a fine pocket pistol

    Pretty hard to find any ammo that slow.

    Maybe slow pitch softball.
