    Here's one that could be the best buy and that's the Kel-Tec PF 9. It's a 9mm 7+1 capacity, with a three inch barrel that is a rival to the Kahr size in a price range of a bit over 300 bucks. Here's my concern. I haven't shot this one and I've not even seen one. Is Kel Tec reliabilty up there with another low cost manufacturer like CZ? If so this one is a keeper. For you guys/gals with Kel-Tecs I'd like to know.

    Also breaking my rule about semi-autos there is a revolver out there that sparks my interest. It's the Bersa Firestorm in 38, rated at +P, with a two inch barrel, DAO with either a bobbed or shrouded hammer. Above all it's a SIX SHOOTER. I like the idea of having that extra round. Being exiled to rural NM for the last two years, this is one I haven't seen, much less fired. I don't know anything about the trigger, hell I don't know much about it except the specs but it sounds very interesting, especially for the revolver guys out there. A few years ago Colt made a small six shot revolver with either a 2 or 3 inch barrel. I thought about buying one, but it was discontinued before I could and I haven't seen a used one. It was a lot like the Berreta 92/96 Centurion series that were DAO with second strike capability. I missed this one as well and sorely regret doings so. The 96 DAO Centurion was one of the best pistols I have ever shot. Dammit.

    Wow. I've been reading several posts, & this one fascinated me because it started in five parts by a person referring to themselves in the third person. So I knew this had to be a good one & I'd really like to jump in, but I wanted to be sure what you really meant in concealed vs. deep concealed. Of course we all know "concealed" means you can't see it. So, by "deep" concealed, do you mean it can't be felt either? Like if it were hidden in the anal cavity? "Deep conceled?" Please let me know ... Fascinating!

    Let me know how that works with a loaded gun up your @$$. Don't forget the holster and +P ammo either. Gives new meaning to packing heat.

    Why would you need a holster?

    Sorry I just could not help myself. Brings back memories of watching a show about inmates carrying knives etc... in that particular body cavity. Around here, you just cant take offense to anything anyone says. For some of us this is the only humor we get during the day.

    To me, deep concealment simply means no one is going to find out I have a gun regardless of being bumped, touched, having a garment malfunction, or any other circumstance. For me I Mexican/Gangster Carry my LCP 380 in an uncle mikes #2 (ie: Appendix Carry down my pants).

    @ justben ... Well, your statement was possible, if not plausible. However, if you were going to go down that route, I really thought that negated the need for a holster. LMAO

    With my luck I would fart and light off a round. Actually that might be cheaper than hemerhoid surgery.

    For DEEP concealment, I would use a Kel-Tec PF9 with belt-clip, 7+1 , 12 oz, and +P Corbons. Otherwise, I'd use my Kel-Tec .380acp with belt-clip, 6+1, 8 oz, with 90 gr +p wallopers.
    I got my Kel-Tec .380 around 2005?, when the Ruger LCP .380 was having recall problems.

    These are great for a grab when going to the store to get gas for the mower, grocery store, etc., especially in hot weather. They conceal so easily with a width of 0.88 inches and have been flawless for years now, but they have some bluing worn off in areas...I don't care as they will be paperweights when I get done with them.

    The PF9 has a real bite to it with +P ammo, but I only run 16 rounds through it per year, since I don't need to engage targets beyond 20 feet.
    Same withe the .380s, they give me a 4 inch group at 30 ft, too, with minimal aiming.

    For regular concealment, I prefer a .45acp... my favorite is a Colt Defender, 7+1, less than 1 inch thick & 22 ozs. It also has a belt-clip for concealment, with a crossbreed for long-term carry.
