    OK. We have a thread with the differences between the LCP and the LC9. Now which would you keep if you could only have one? This is just for fun, of course, because nobody has just one gun do they? I honestly don't know which way I would go. In the past I would have said LCP without hesitation but I am really liking my LC9. The more I shoot it the more I like it.

    That's a tuff one to answer Bigdogdaddy. I currently have my Elsie and sold my LC9 last year and have been looking for a .45 as a BIG brother to Elsie. So, my answer to your question is Elsie.

    Why come to me for answers? What have I done to deserve such generosity.

    For me it would come down to what is more important to me: minimum size or minimum caliber.

    If its size, the LCP; if 9mm is the minimum caliber I'm comfortable with, the LC9 gives me minimum size for the caliber.

    Of course there could be other factors, such as fit in my hand, how we'll I shoot the model, how much recoil can I tolerate, cost of practice ammunition, and availability of ammo.

    The LC9 as well. I like IWB carry. With a good holster the LC9 is very close to my perfect setup.

    One thing that may push me towards the LCP is that I have seen other 9mm that I like pretty well. I have not seen any .380 pocket pistols at the $300 price point that I like as well as the LCP. I don't know. I have asked a question I am struggling with. I am glad I don't really have to pick one.

    You're making me think too much this morning, BDD! Although the LCP is much more "carry friendy," I'd probably opt for the LC9 for the better caliber and slightly increased number of rounds. Like you, I'm glad I don't have to make a choice.

    For me, hands down I would keep the LC9.
    A bit more power and, for me, better accuracy.
    I find the LC9 ALMOST as easy to conceal as the LCP.

    Having said all that, I admit that the LCP is in the pocket of my work shorts right now.

    The LCP makes a great backup gun for the LC9..... Best of both worlds.
