After a long adventure in pocket pistol land I landed back on a P32 today. I bought a P32 about 12 years ago (at least) and then traded it off. It was my very first "pocket pistol" and I figured I would move in to other pocket guns. In that time I've owned and sold LCP 1 and 2, Seecamp 32 and 380, P3AT, multiple NAA mini-revolvers, Beretta 21a and 950, Glock 42, RM380 and Smith Bodyguard. All in a search for the "perfect" pocket pistol. All of them had pros and cons but today I went back to a P32. It's just the perfect (for me) pocket pistol.

Understand how you feel revcov. I've had a wandering eye myself. But what I can't get away from, and must acknowledge is I shoot this little gem better than anything else I've tried in a pocket size pistol. It is my always gun.

I like the way you put it: "perfect (for me) pocket pistol". That's the bottom line. Not what somebody else thinks is better. Only you know what is best for you.

Amen mark40. The small 380s kick too much (for me) and the affordability of the p32 means I can add a second or third to my collection.
I never wanted a .380 for this reason. I have 3 P32's. All Gen 1 and 2 are hard chrome. Pocket carry is very easy with these.

Revcov, my story is almost exactly like yours, except for maybe 1 different one I tried along the way of finding my way back to a P-32. Awesome little gun. I have a pocket holster but also have a "Baby Bet" when I want it on my belt.

I bought a Beretta tomcat years ago and I had issues with it. Took it back to my LGS and traded it in on a G1-P32 in hard chrome. After I got it, I never even considered looking for another gun to pocket carry. I forget I have it in my pocket sometimes.

Yep, when cheating on my P-32, it was a Tomcat. Mistake. You all know the rest of the story.

I've traveled, and continue to travel, a similar (expensive) journey.

My trusty old P32 (circa 1999) is back with Kel Tec for a few problems, but I'm still convinced that my first pocket BUG is my best. I love my Seecamp 32, but it is significantly heavier and has a lousy selection of rounds from which to choose.

Curious about the RM380, though. What didn't you like? I found it just a bit too big for pocket carry, but it is another pistol with which I'll never part. Absolutely, utterly reliable, with whatever rounds I throw at it, dirty or clean. Like the Kel Tec, it ain't particularly pretty, but I know it's always gonna go BANG.
