    EB7F78D7-5D34-459B-9A05-25A0427D66FB.jpeg S&W J Frame for me it’s as small that I feel comfortable with bringing into a defense position without fumbling and loss of speed. My 351C coming in at 11 ounces Makes for great small gun.

    For about 10 years my smallest gun was a Kel Tec PF9 (9mm), which gave way a few years back to a Seecamp LWS 32 (.32 ACP), which as of last year or so gave way to my Bauer .25 Automatic (.25 ACP). This is the smallest hand gun I own, or have ever owned.

    That’s a beautiful gun. Grips go perfect with it.

    Beretta 950. Or, maybe a Jennings .22....I am so ashamed. It was decades ago, honest, I was young and stupid. I swear.

    I am a huge mouser fan. The Walther Model 9 is the smallest commercial autoloader followed closely by the Baby/Bauer. Here's a shot that shows some of the guns mentioned in the thread.

    Smallest revolver: NAA Sidewinder 22 Magnum, picked it up at a pawn shop. Smallest autoloader: Raven P-25, my grandmother bought it new in the mid 1970's.

    I don’t own it, but I shot an XDS in 380 acp this weekend and was stunned at how compact it is.

    Seecamp .32. Glad I replaced it with an LCPII.

    I have a Remington vest pocket derringer. It's very tiny. Black powder 22 rimfire. 3 digit serial # Made somewhere between 1863-65. Spring is still strong, refinished in the 1800's.

    It depends on how you measure them.
    Either an AMT .380 Backup, a Cobra Derringer in .22 Mag or a NAA Mini convertible .22.

    I had a Bernardelli VB like Pete's except .22 Short. I thought about the .22 Long but ammo was getting scarce even then. Not a big enough frame for Long Rifle.
