Well I've been watching this thread for a while now, and I guess I'll chime in now.
I've had a CWP for over 28 years, but I never started carrying "all the time" until about 5 years ago.
After a few "events" that either affected me and mine, or close friends/neighbors, I decided it was time to start carrying 24/7. At the time I had several handguns, but found none of them suited to my needs.
I had, and still have a XD45Compact, but found that I had a hard time keeping it comfortably concealed, especially in warm weather. I also have a S+W Airweight, but I found even with that I still had to change the way I dressed. Back the Ruger hadn't even started making the LCP yet, not to mention the LCR. I ended up going with the P3AT. I might ad that I made the decision to go with the P3AT because of several factors, not the least of which was a personal recommendation from Ron Hood. I was looking for the smallest, most powerfull handgun that I could conceal no matter how I was dressed. After a few posts on the hoodums forum, and a couple of PMs, Ron actually called me up to talk about it. That's just the type of guy Ron was. He didn't know me from a hole in the ground, but he took the time to not only give me his opinion, but to do it over the phone.
He was indeed right about the little Keltec. I've been carrying one every day for several years now, and so has my wife. When I bought the second one, I could've bought the newly released Ruger LCP for the same price, but I'd had zero issues with the 1st P3AT so I bought a second one.
They may seem a little cheesy, and they are no tack driver, but they are reliable and a purpose built tool.
That being said, none of the guns mentioned in this thread are "bad choices" in my opinion. If you're not going to carry "all the time", or you can pull off carrying a bigger weapon, then that's exactly what you should do. Just remember, the choice you're making is a serious one, and this is the internet.
Most internet advice (including mine) can and should be taken with a grain of salt. For every EDC/CCW recommendation you get for a pocket 380 you'll get one for a 8" barreled model29 in 44mag
It really is your choice, and only you know what your expectations really are.
