    Looking to get a good pocket pistol. Got an opportunity to purchase an LCP or for a quite a bit more “pocket change” a Colt Mustang Pocketlite. Never held one of the Colt Mustangs, any pros or cons?

    I have wanted a Mustang for 20 yrs but they are pricey. I have held several and they feel great in your hand.

    I hate my LCP, fwiw.
    No particular good reason though, it does what it's sposed to.

    I like the Kel-tec PF9. Its not much bigger that the LCP but its a 9mm instead of the 380. Ad the mag extension plat to make the grip a smidge longer.

    This ^^^^^ excellent pocket pistol, but I hate mine as well. Not fun to shoot, seems too small in my hands and is just painful to shoot.

    I bought an lcp off here last month and it’s not a pleasure to shoot but it goes bang and will put a hole in someone.

    My PF9 is my summer pocket pistol. When I'm fishing or tooling around the farm, it's in my pocket. Much more comfortable than anything I have a holster for when I'm dressed light. Inexpensive and shoots well, for what it is.

    Heard about an ol timer (84) the was working on his stove and shuffled his keys to his gun pocket in order to get his knife. Well while bending down working on stove the 380 went off!! Said he thought the stove blew up till he looked and seen his bibs was red lol.Luckily didn't hit anything substantial and stopped at the knee. He said he ask 2 Dr's to remove it and they wouldn't. Not sure what kind of pistola

    I’ve got a Performance Center Shield I pack now. Love it, just wanting something smaller for the pocket obviously. The Bodyguard is a great pistol. Just don’t care for the styling.

    That would’ve sucked. He obviously wasn’t doing something right though. Lol.

    I purchased (120$) and liked my pf9 because if i lost it, abused it, or needed to disappear it, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest. Then i did what i tend to do and polished the ramp, cleaned up the rough surfaces inside and out, replaced the trigger and other parts with improvements, and made various other modifications. I even bought a laser that I rarely use. It now performs like a $500 pocket pistol but i likely have that much time and money in it lol.

    Sig 938 with hogue grips and an extended mag is my favorite compact 9mm by a large margin. (Especially if tou prefer a 1911 like platform.) Pricey but not when you factor in the nite sights! They make a smaller .380 version too Sig p238 but i personally dont like .380s 9A3CF317-67C6-411D-BA1E-F6E9EF978147.jpeg D6B7BC64-453C-4ACA-870F-722345C5C7F7.jpeg
