Christmas Day is fast approaching and Breitbart News thought it apropos to highlight six pocket guns that should be on wish lists around the country.
These guns are perfect for men who live in climates where cargo shorts/pants are daily wear, as you can put the gun in a small holster and literally drop it in your front pocket and go. The six guns listed below are also excellent gift choices if you have a woman on your list–say, a mother or grandmother who plans to keep the gun in her purse or even to carry the gun in a sweatshirt pocket while walking the kids in the park.
One of the guns on this list is so light and compact you can carry it in sweat pants or other relaxed clothing without needing to worry about the weight of the gun pulling on the pants.
And the recoil on all these guns is minimal, as they are chambered in .380, .32 or .38 Special. They really are great guns for mothers and grandmothers who realize they are the first line of defense for their children or grandchildren should trouble strike.
Here are the six pocket guns:
Kel-Tec P32–The Kel-Tec P32 is an ultra-lightweight semiautomatic pistol chambered in .32 caliber. (By “ultra-lightweight” I mean 6.6 ounces.) This is the gun for your sweatshirt or sweatpants, and it is certainly a front pocket pistol for people who regularly wear cargo shorts. The magazine holds seven rounds, plus one in the chamber for a total of eight. The gun has no external safety; if a bullet is in the chamber the gun is ready to go. However, the trigger pull on the P32 is long double-action only and that long pull serves to prevent accidental discharges.
Approximate price for a Kel-Tec P32 is $250.
Ruger LCP–The Ruger LCP is one of the most popular pocket guns on the market. It weights in at 9.6 ounces–extremely light–and is chambered in .380. It holds six rounds in the magazine plus one in the chamber, for a total of seven rounds. Like the Kel-Tec P32, the Ruger has no external safety mechanism. Rather, it has the long double-action only trigger pull that helps prevent accidental discharges. The LCP is an extremely durable gun in a slightly larger caliber than the Kel-Tec, yet it is diminutive enough that front pocket carry or purse carry is no problem.
Approximate price for a Ruger LCP is $250-$270.
Glock 42–The Glock 42 is a sub-compact pistol that is larger than the Kel-Tec or Ruger, yet still small enough for pocket or purse carry. It is chambered in .380 and holds six rounds in the magaizne and one in the chamber, for a total of seven. The 42 weighs 13.76 ounces. The gun’s weight makes the recoil of the .380 round even easier to handle, which makes the 42 a great concealed carry gun for women (or anyone looking for less recoil). The 42 has a very short trigger pull–compared to the Kel-Tec or Ruger–and has a trigger safety that is part of the Glock “Safe Action” system. The Glock 42 is very comfortable to carry, easy to use, and has Glock dependability on its side.
Approximate price for Glock 42 is $420-450.
