    In the Summer a TP738 or a P3AT is in my pocket. In holster weather I might slip a PF9 on my belt.

    Depending on my mode of dress my under rated carries include my:

    My first post!

    When I'm not rocking my favorite little piece (Kahr Mk9), I'll go with my super thin, super reliable, and super comfortable KelTec PF9 in a Remora IWB holster.

    I hear some criticism of the effectiveness of 38spl, but I love my j-frame anyway...;)

    BG 380, under-rated caliber, under-rated gun. But I love it. The first rule of a gunfight is to bring a gun.

    I carry a Grand Power K100 Mk 6, also known as STI GP6. Underrated? Who decides? I have much more expensive and "proven" guns too, but my K100 is my workhorse.

    This is a good and worthy topic, but I made up my mind forty years ago. The best small gun I could find back then was the .38 snub. Everyone carried those back then; it was the small gun that worked every time. I have found no reason to change my mind since.

    The largest animal killed by a standard velocity .38 is the polar bear. The circumstances were unusual. If it had not happened in New York I would not have believed it.

    +1 on the Keltec PF9. Kendal, my wife carries a j frame .38, never ran into any polar bears though.

    Not only is mine under-rated, it's over-priced. :)

    Yup. EDC is an LCP. And like the OP, I favor a single-stack 3913 (or its .40 caliber big brother 4013) over many doublestack polymer pistols when I'm carrying something bigger than the .380.

    Obviously a lot of parents with fans of Phineas and Ferb in here!

    My only concealed carry option right now is my Kimber GC stainless, however I would certainly supplement it with a pocket pistol if I had one!

    I march to the sound of a different drummer. Always have. One of my most often carried.
