    Sig P238 is reasonable, and fun, to shoot. For a pocket .380, it is a bit heavy at 15.2oz (unloaded). But, that makes it way more manageable for me compared to the LCP (that I only tried once).

    Our his & hers P238s:

    Thanks. Ive heard nothing, but good things about them. I'll get one someday sooner rather than later. I'll get the LCP II for sure. It's a much better gun from what I saw.

    This French guy I worked with wear skinny paints so tight I thought they were man leggings. I don't know where he puts it unless it's the size of a baby carrot. Also they are capri style paints. Yuck.

    Now that I'm retired , I pocket carry a little more often.

    It was liberating the first time because I'm used carrying a heavier caliber.

    A .380 was great for this purpose but belt carry is still to engrained in my muscle memory to a regular thing yet.

    I've been pocket carrying my kimber solo with a propper sweatshirt. It has a magnetic hole inside the pocket of the sweatshirt to allow you to access your gun without anyone knowing you drew it. I've been clipping the gun on the inside of my left pocket. It's pretty great. I can pull the gun and have it ready to go and just flip it out of the pocket or just flip the sweatshirt up if I need to fire really fast or if some one gets the jump on me.
    I agree my other gun is better, but I just do this for a quick run somewhere. I'll be doing both tonight when I go buy a kayak off Craigslist from the ghetto.

    I've always wanted one of those because of the size but they are too expensive.

    Nah.

    And you can always get your money back.

    Listen, Massachusetts SUX.

    But we do have this HANDGUN ROSTER.

    https://www.mass.gov/files/documents/2017/10/02/Approved Firearms Roster 09-2017.pdf

    I hate it - every 2A supporter hates it - BUT...

    Every single Handgun on it has passed a series of truly torturous tests for reliability and safety.

    They fire it over and over and over, drop it - multiple times. Etc, Etc.

    The bottom line is although there are MANY very high quality Handguns that ARE NOT on this list (because the manufacturers refused to kiss our AG's asshole), every last handgun on this Roster is of the highest quality. You can bet your life on that !

    The Seecamp .32 is on it.

    I am not, and have nevah been from NEW YAWK.

    As I said long ago, I'm only on this forum because the members are awesome, the mods are fair, and because NorthEastShooters.Com BANNED me (like six times).

    Say something TRUE about MUSLIMS; post a pic of a woman in a Bikini; write something while DRUNK (wtf); and they BAN you.

    Sometimes they don't even refund your $20 annual dues.

    They did me an enormous favour.

    I do feel bad for you guys, tho.

    Even more than Mass, you have an enormous state, awesome state, that is totally ruined by a festering cesspool down at your southernmost extreme. NYC could hardly be worse (unless it were Chicago or LA. or Bawstun.)

    I carry the Ruger LCP gen 1 daily and for the price they're a hell of a gun and 100% reliable.

    Propper makes it. They are awesome. I just looked and I can't find them. Maybe they don't have them anymore. They were clearances out for $20.00 each.

    Found them.

    Hey mods. I got $50 if you ban @CaseHardened for a week. :banstick:

    Obviously he is a no good pos.....as demonstrated by the repeated banning he gets.

    Keep out the misfits! No misfits here. :ROFL::ROFL::popcorn:

    The lcp custom is the way to go for pocket carry in my opinion.

    This thread is renewing my interest on trying to figure out how to carry at work. After reading and seeing the pictures I think my G43 is just too big to use as a deep concealment gun. I'm leaning toward picking up a LCP and trying ankle or boot carrying.

    I have a 1st gen Ruger LCP. Been carrying it for years without issue. Yes the trigger is like a staple gun, but its not a target gun...Point and pull. It works. I usually carry it in my front right pocket in a Elite pocket holster. I actually just picked up a Fobus paddle OWB for it yesterday I am going to try.

    You'll receive a lot of flak concerning ANKLE CARRY in most Gun Forums.

    Just not accessible enough, they say. And probably nasty with a 1911 !

    But I've carried my Seecamp .32ACP on my ankle in a DeSantis for years. Very comfortable, and easily concealed.

    Quite easily snuck by any half-assed Security Guard with a wand, too.

    I would never try to get into a Courthouse, Jail, etc., wearing it.

    But some silly concert, movie theatre, or fair, I just might. But why bother ? Those places are SO safe.

    Let's face it I sit at a desk for a living, not where I saw my life going but its what happened. So if there is an instance at work the odds are I will be taking a knee behind my desk anyways, so I will be in the correct position to draw. I do stop at target and the gas station on my way home, but other than that I don't deviate much. For all other carry I will be using an IWB gun.

    Any gun, even a small and inaccessible one, is better than none.

    You can actually draw quicker too if seated in the car. Look on YouTube. They have many ankle draw techniques.

    Makes sense to me.

    Just to draw my wallet I need to lift myself up out of the car seat.

    Reaching my ankle is far easier.
