There is a huge market for the pocket pistol right now. The rate of ccw applications has been exploding over the last few years. Companies have been
rushing production on compact pistols, in doing so, they have overlooked details that are paramount in defensive carry weapons.
Trigger pull, the length thereof, has been an area completely ignored by the manufacturer. Everyone from Smith and Wesson to Ruger.
I purchased a Ruger LCP for my wife. While it functions excellently, the slide has a heavy draw, the trigger has a longer pull, but nothing
unmanageable by my wife. Other pocket pistols did not fair very well comparatively.
In the larger caliber market, above .40 S & W, these problems are intolerable.
Recently I decided to pick up a Rhino 60DS revolver for open carry. Probably gonna continue to open carry that beast until I either settle for a
.380-9mm pocket pistol, or they make .40-.45 cal semiautomatic compacts that are worth my money.
