So....you just referenced Bobo to Bobo's pocket auto comparison chart.

I just realized that too.
If there was a smiley for hiding behind my chair then that would be the one I would choose for this.

Surprised to find no Kel Tecs listed.
Oh well, good info otherwise!

I agree it is a great chart, and I'm happy to host it on mouseguns.com....
Here's the link again:

I should like Bobo to Bobo's comparison chart like in the other thread:neener:

There are no Kel-Tecs listed because the purpose of this chart is to list handguns that are between 6 and 7 inches long. The Kel-Tec pistols are shorter than 6 inches. They can be found on the chart by BOBO.

This should become a sticky for sure.

1. If David wants his work posted on THR, he is the one to make the request, not you. Copyright and "Fair Use" standards aside, it would be very poor form for THR to simply appropriate work from another board and publish it here.
2. If HE so wishes, David could do it by simply becoming a member of THR, and then making an entry in Handguns: Autoloaders forum, linking his chart. If it seems to go over well, I'd be happy to make it a "Sticky."
3. It seems a bit clumsy to have two separate charts, your original plus David's, with his restricted size parameters? Might the two of you could get together and make a combined chart? It would save a lot of back-and-forth referencing.
4. By the way: please DO NOT make duplicate posts on various forums. I've combined the three of your public requests into a single entry.

Hi Johnny Guest,
I'm the creator of the chart and have been a member here for a while; well since before deciding to create the chart. I've been watching Bobo's post, I just didn't see any need to add anything to what Bobo had said.
I also have no problems with Bobo posting the request. Bobo helped a lot in the creation of "my" chart and, not to put words in his mouth, I think wanted to get this out into the community's hands as quick as possible.
Do you want me to create a new thread and request it be made a sticky?
With regards to having separate charts or not, I think separate is best. These charts are cumbersome to create and edit, plus mine is starting to get rather large even in PDF (> 3Mb). And, these things do take some effort to create. Gathering the data and putting my chart together took several weeks of evenings of work. IMO I think it is best to have different segments covered by different charts. The file sizes stay smaller, they're easier to work with, and the "load" is spread across more than one user.
If you want to keep the data as close together as possible, one suggestion could be for Bobo to edit his original sticky and add the link to my chart. Just a suggestion.
I created this compact comparison chart because I think this is where my next purchase will be. I know Bobo's chart helped me a lot in my first pocket pistol purchase. After putting the effort into it, I just want to share it with others so they can benefit. I hope others can get some use out of it.

Do you want me to create a new thread and request it be made a sticky? Yes, David - - I think that's best. Simply go to Handguns: Autoloaders forum, introduce your project, and mention that it is a follow-on, or supplement to, Bobo's project. Be certain to include the link to your chart.
I'll then try to arrange the two sticky posts so they are adjacent to each other.
Now that you explain it, I can understand why it would be a major pain to merge the two charts.
To any other interested parties: When dal205 posts the intro for the sticky, please DO NOT add to the thread until we can get it all sorted out. I'll likely delete any entries not made by David or Bobo.
I'll likely be late Wednesday evening in returning to THR.
