DEEP Deep Concealment Options
#11

The reason I'm looking for something SUB sub compact is I want to add another layer of options to my EDC. Full size and sub compact deep concealment is already covered. I'm not really looking to explain the merits behind it either, can't a guy just buy a gun because he wants to? Big Grin

Ammo shouldn't be an issue.
I have a P32 and the only time it was hard to find ammo was during the great panic of 1812.

It's getting pricey though since it's not purchased in the same volume as other calibers.

I usually see a lonely box of 25 on the shelf when I look in Walmart.


Here's a knife you may be interested in. I mean, awkward, and marginally effective, but better than nothing.

The P32 and the P3AT, LCP, and TCP are virtually the same size, so if you're looking for something smaller than an LCP, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Some time ago, there was a report of a lady at McDonalds dropping one of the NAAs out of her purse, whereupon it discharged. Of course it didn't say if she was foolish enough to be carrying it cocked (with no trigger guard).

In one of the .22 magnum chamberings, that might put a world of hurt on someone. Then again, even in .22LR, it could smart a bit.

Maybe a pair of these. Do you have the legs to pull it off??

No doubt they did something stupid, I'm pretty sure they're drop safe. I don't know though. One cool thing about those too is the fold up trigger block/grip they have for them. You could almost put a damn keyring on those little guns.

The only way I can see to go smaller and still have a useful caliber is a derringer. Maybe a Double Tap or one of the Bond Arms derringers would work for you. Some Bond Arms models have a trigger guard but they are SAO. The Doubletap is DAO.

I think that Bond Arms Backup is in the lead in this category for me. I'll have to see if Grices or Nationals here has any to fondle.

I've been toying with the idea of a Bond Arms as a back up for my Judge. I like my backups to be in the same caliber as my primary. I would prefer a DA/SA but there isn't a whole lot out there that small that shoots .45LC/.410

It's really not that bad, you need to cock the hammer for each shot, it's not a light pull and there's a decent amount of travel to do it.

These are 38 special (white grip) and 32 ACP (I incorrectly thought my other was 380 auto)

One of my fishing buddies keeps one as his fishing vest gun. It's about 10 oz unloaded, a smidge over 4" long and not quite 3" high. I think it's rather sharp looking too.

I second this. Baby Brownings, both the originals and the American made versions NY Bauer and Precision Small Arms, are the smallest guns I've ever handled. I could conceal them pretty much anywhere, and thought they're solid steel, they're pretty lightweight. There 100% reliable, in my experience, and surprisingly accurate for its size.

I really miss mine. I enjoyed plinking with it, and I was able to carry in places I normally couldn't, like when I was at work (gun free zone policy), and other places.
