Sweet! let us know how you like it after range time. It will definitely fit in a pocket.

OK Just for ChinCactus a range report.
Had it out at first light. Shot 50 rounds of Remington UMC 71 gr FMJ I picked up at Bass Pro. Other than a couple of stovepipes on the last round in a mag all was good. It may be that the mag springs are so new and stiff it is shooting that last round up faster than it should.

Really not bad for first outing on a pocket gun. I have some Fiocchi coming in by UPS. I never cared for Remington ammo, maybe it will like other brands and break in some.

At 13.9 oz empty it is just a hair lighter than my Airweight and holds one more round. But it is a lot smaller.

Sounds great. I know with the Seecamp, it will only feed silvertips. My brother modified a spare mag to get it to accept other rounds.

I need another 38 Airweight. Had one and sold it and regret it! Pretty much like every bike I've ever sold.

Guns are tools, and as such come in different sizes according to what's needed, or desired.

For under loose shirts/jackets and hiking I have a Kimber 45ACP with night sights and laser.



For front pocket carry in jeans and cargo shorts I go with Ruger LC9S Pro, also with laser.



For biking and everyday toss in the pocket I carry an NAA 22LR mini revolver.



The 2nd amendment of our US Constitution offers us as individual citizens the right to just say NO to crime, and refuse to be a victim.

Before it was a felony, we all carried guns. Mostly 25s and I carried a S&W .22 pocket Escort in back pocket wrapped in a handky.

From experience.........a good holster is one that keeps your gun in place when you lay your cycle down.

Well then, Zo, my "Crossbreed" appendix carry must be pretty damn good!

I like my Milt Sparks Summer Time Special holsters. One for my .380 Colt Mustang for hot weather/light clothing and one for my .45 Combat Commander for cooler weather and heavier clothing. I like it when nobody can tell I'm carrying (I like surprises)
