Out of the choices listed in the poll, which subcompact handgun is the best all around (reliability, accuracy, durability, etc). All of these fit my size requirements. I do not care about whether they are in .380 or 9mm. Thanks.

My vote goes for the PF9. More powerful round than a .380, it's light weight, very slim, reliable and inexpensive.

Where is the Sig P-238?
IMO, the best of the subcompacts.

You also left out the Seecamp, and Rohrbach as well as the Kahr 380.

But three Kel-Tecs? Why bother with a poll?

Different price class of pistols than what are on the poll. :scrutiny:

I voted Walther because you asked about reliability. It's been around a lot longer than the others and has proven itself.

Keep in mind that this is for the pistols listed. I know there are arguably better and comparable subcompacts out there but these are the only ones I am interested in comparing.

ultra sub compact?

Because I don't see the XD SC anywhere on that list....

I voted for the Walther - but caveat - a pre S&W Walther PPK. My choice, however, is really for the CZ 2075 RAMI 9mm subcompact.

Normally I'm not that guy who adds options to the poll, BUT...

Why not the PPS? It's really no bigger than the Bersa, PF9 or P11, but it'd be hard to argue that it isn't better than all of those. It is a bit pricier, but worth every extra penny.

IMO, the Walther PPS is the SC on the market.

I see. That's a different story.

Tough choice between Bersa and Walther.

My vote is for the Bersa. I am biased, however, as I have been using my Thunder .380 as my EDC for over two years now. With over 800 rounds down the pipe, I haven't had a malfunction since the first mag (which I blame on my lack of pre-cleaning it before taking it to the range)

They are good looking guns, function well, are plenty accurate at SD ranges, and (at least mine) eats anything I feed it.

Just for some eye candy:

So as to present a list of the BEST pocket pistols, kindly add the venerable Colt Mustang.

Thanks.

I vote for the Bersa
It has been a really reliable no problem pistol for years.

Some of the pistols you list are what I would consider pocket pistols and some are not.

Are size and cost a factor?

In any case I vote none of them because there are better choices available.

None of those listed. Kahrs make a few guns that work perfectly despite what you may read on-line.

Walther PPK or Colt Mustang, because they are cool.:cool:
