I would like to look at small "pocket" guns.

Any one to look at, or ones to avoid?

I like my Ruger LCP .380.  I also have a North American Arms .22 with the .22mag conversion cylinder.  Tiny, tiny gun.  .22mag isn't the best choice for self defense but no other gun is easier to carry and conceal.

A 9mm would be my minimum caliber unless I was packing Lehigh Defense Extreme Penetrator in 380.  That being said I like the Ruger LC9s Pro or the Walther CCP.

I believe mouse guns end at 380, no?

Depends on who you ask...

Personally, I lump pocket guns with mouse guns. I'd consider both my S&W 642-1 (in 9mm) and my SIG P938 mouse guns. It might not be NAA sized, but smaller than a sub-compact.

If you do get technical with the definition, you can get Derringers in 9mm, .45, and alike.

+1 on the Sig P938. Not as small as a pocket .380 but the very slight size difference gives me a 9mm with 7 in the mag and one in the chamber.

I like the Sig 238 type pistols, but the idea of carrying them hammer up bothers me.

(and they don't shoot hammer down)

 

I like how the PPK is DA/SA, but it is too big to put in a pocket.

Cocked and locked isn't for everyone... but the P938's safety is very positive. In a holster of some type, I don't see it being swiped off.

Happened to me once but I was getting in and out of the car multiple times. It won't fire unless you press the trigger so in a good holster it was OK but I try to remember to check the safety if I am getting in and out of the car often.

Any thoughts on the Sig 290 and the Beretta Pico?

I shot the Nano fairly well but the trigger was like a Ruger DA. I was accurate firing slow but not so much with controlled pairs.

 

I have heard the Pico has the same trigger.

Give the Kahr P380 a look. It's the only Kahr I really like and it beats out many other pocket autos in size while still holding 6+1.

They can be found on the cheap, I found one for $350.

After holding a Beretta Pico for 10 seconds, I already didn't like it. Not enough gun for my hands to grab.

I find the Beretta Bobcat is instinctive to hold/point and very accurate in .22LR. The action is DA/SA and can cock n' lock. The slightly thicker grip nestles comfortably in my palm. The only issue (besides comments about 22 stopping power, etc) is that 50 rounds or so can cause it to hang up on a full mag due to carbon build up.
