I've been looking around quite a bit now and was hoping you guys could further my search. What's the smallest 9mm you know of? What's the smallest .380ACP you know of?

I would agree with that. For 9mm, the Rohrbaugh.

All 9mms are the same size otherwise they wouldn't be called "9mm" would they? Same holds true for the .380. Kind of a stupid question don't you think?

I'm guessing 'Albanian' means ********* in his native tongue.

Thanks michiganfan,

I was only joking around. I should have learned by now that having fun and joking around once in a while is a big no-no. We all have to be serious all the time people!:rolleyes:

I don't know Albanian personally, but since he was busting winzeler's chops, I figured i'd bust his. I wasn't trying to start anything. Geesh. Kid gloves from now on.

Rohrbaughs are the smallest 9mm autos, but at $900-1000, I decided instead on the next larger 9mm, the Kahr PM9, which can be had at a more reasonable $550-600 new. They're still small enough to fit in most pockets, and are reliable and fairly accurate with a very good DAO trigger pull. I don't think there is anything else that size and weight comparable in quality.

The smallest .380 I believe is the Keltec P3AT, which I also own. Some buyers have had reliability problems. Mine was made reliable after doing the "Fluff and Buff" procedure found on the Net. Cost me less than an hour of my time and a little sandpaper. It's so small and light it'll conceal carry about anywhere and disappear in a small pocket.

In addition to being very small, the Kel Tec P3AT is very light. Hard to beat as a pocket pistol...assuming it goes bang every time.

NAA Guardian .380 is shorter and shorter (length and height) than the P3AT, but thicker and heavier.

Thanks for that mouseguns link. That's pretty much what I was looking for.

The problem with good sarcasm is that it is often impossible to distinguish from a face-value statement. That's Albanian's curse and blessing. Check out some oh his "... is a thinking man's caliber". They are hilarous!

I think very few people would take this as a joke. There's other ways to indicate you're joking.

Anyway, it looks like Winzeler got what he was looking for.

Has anyone received objective reports positive or negative on Skyy?

It looks like a 9mm Kel Tec but with a ambi-safety lever.

I gotta ask... does Kevin make a 9mm?

I answered my own question... yes... can't read it, though... :(

Crap... never mind, they're both .380's... :banghead:

Trainman, that looks like a customized P11. I'd like to get one and try it out, if I knew where and how much.

Nice road you're on there but you're not on the high one.

Browns Fan, according to their web site they claim to be a complete manufacturer of this gun in South Daytona Fla.

I like the size, (Weight 17 oz, Width 1, Length 5.7, Height 4), caliber (9mm - 9+1 Round Capacity), and the frame mounted safety. Now if I could get some objective reports on functionality I might put out some coins for one.:cool:

What about that little $900 9mm... the Rorbaugh or something like that? Has carbon fiber grips and is the same size as, or smaller than the Seecamp .32.

The Rohrbaugh is a keeper. It's worth every penny IMO.
If you shoot one you'll know why.

Skyy Gun executives are infiltrating message boards, posing as average users with rave reviews (flatly lying when someone suspects) while smearing the product they copied. This leaves me with a very poor impression of the company before I've even seen their knockoff in person.
