Looking for recommendations on pocket .380. I'm looking for something that can be safely carried with round in chamber in a pocket holster . Ruger LCP , LCP Custom, LCP II , Khar CW 380 or ???

I like my Ruger LCP. Very safe and light. But keep in mind it's double action only which means the trigger is used to pull back the hammer every time you fire it. While this makes it a safer gun, some folks prefer a gun that cocks the hammer after an initial shot.

Ruger LCP and Keltec 380 are the 2 I have carried in a wallet holster.

How's the trigger on the Keltec compared to the Ruger ?

I've got a Colt Govt 380, a Sig 238 and a LCP. The Colt and Sig shoot better and have better triggers but the LCP gets carried more because of its weight.

When I wanted an LCP, they were recalled many years ago. I got a Kel-Tec then. It is surprisingly accurate, thin, and small. Trigger pull is long, but not near as heavy as some revolvers.

I've had Glock, Bersa, Bodyguard and LCP, all in .380. For a pocket pistol the LCP wins.

I'm sticking with a G42 as my small gun.

Had a LCP. Controlling that little pistol enough to maintain accuracy much beyond spitting distance was a chore for me. It can be done with careful hold/trigger control, etc. But I'm pretty sure that for most people (me included) all that goes out the window when it's needed. It's certainly better than nothing but I don't put it much beyond the class of a card-table gun. YMMV.

Taurus PT738 in a De Santis is my pocket rig. Lots of dirt in pockets check what every you carry regularly for function.

Bersa Thunder rides with me. I carry that instead of my rarer Walther. They shoot about the same.

LCP trigger is a little better as is racking the slide but not a whole lot better.

I had a LCP and sent it back due to recall. Ruger still couldn't get it right. Sold it and got a Keltec P3AT. Very accurate and dependable, but not a fun gun to shoot.
