Knowing the bear paws you're sporting Nate, I want a photo of them disappearing in your hands!  Don't even need a holster, since they're gonna look like a Keychain minus the keys!

Nate,

What happened to your brain?

a .380?

The only way you can hurt anyone with those is to do a mag dump on your assailant, then stuff the weapon itself into the wound, and hope that he develops a nasty infection

Seriously bro, you're changing...

I prefer to carry my G27 but the lcp definitely fits in better on some occasions. A 22 in your hand is better than a45 in the truck.

Looking forward to your review.

I carry a Kimber Micro in .380 at times. It's a great summer clothing weapon that is surprisingly accurate, and with the right SD ammo, gets the job done. So your not the only one who's rocking .380ACP

The Kimber would NOT have been my first choice but for a odd chain of events. As it turns out...of all the Kimbers we have owned/own, the Micro is the only one I'd say is worth the cost of ownership. Then again we bought both from a Kimber Master dealer at his cost when he shut down his shop.

I picked up two LCPs on black Friday for a good deal, one for me and one for.my wife. Ive found that I'm carrying much more consistently than I did with my 45. Don't get me wrong, if I knew I was going into a gun fight I'd stay home, but I have heard they aren't very well scheduled.
