Picked up a new mouse pistol today

My wife and I bought a little mouse gun today. I pocket carry a LC9S and she is suppose to carry an LCR 327. I am always bugging her about not carrying her fire arm. Her answer is "If I had a little bitty pistol I would carry it". What a coincidence I had been wanting to get a little bitty pistol myself.
I was looking hard at the Seecamp but could never find one to fondle and didn't like having to find specific ammo to feed reliably.
I found a NAA Guardian 32 ACP NIB at the LGS for $349 OTD. I was able to put a couple of mags through it this afternoon. I wouldn't call it fun to shoot but I was able to tear up a milk jug at 21ft. My wife will not like the recoil but it's not for target practice. She is not able to rack the slide but this is a "get off me" gun and I don't anticipate a problem feeding good ammo. I didn't have a problem with the cheap stuff today. The trigger is DAO smooth but heavy, she will have to use both hands two fingers but that is how she shoots anyways.
It would be better if she would consistently carry the LCR, But the Guardian in her purse is better that the LCR at home. Same for me when I need or want something smaller than the 9mm.
Ain't she purdy cuddled up with the LC9S?

Nice try Lonnie I think we will keep it. I'm still working on her to carry the LCR.

Good choice in a gun. Few people want to get shot.

Nice choice. Coincidently, we also are going to be buying a Guardian or Seecamp in .32 acp . We've both shot the little Seecamp and it's a hoot. And like you, we think a .32 in my wifes purse is better than a J frame at home

Keep your eyes open for a Beretta .32 ACP with a flip up barrel, never need to rack the slide.
I have a couple in .25 ACP, great pocket guns.

Have one. But the P238 in .380 is actually a bit thinner, with it's locking breech shoots softer despite it having more power, so it all the pocket carry any more.

RAC55 will become famous soon enough
For a deep cover back up .32cal mouse gun I always liked my KelTec P32. It's so slim and light, you don't even feel it in your pocket. The Speer Gold Dots work flawlessly in mine.

"My wife will not like the recoil but it's not for target practice. She is not able to rack the slide but this is a "get off me" gun and I don't anticipate a problem feeding good ammo."

Nice find, but if this is for her don't you think she should have some input? And if she won't like the recoil why is she any more likely to carry this as opposed to the LCR? And if she can't rack the slide what is she supposed to do if there's a malfunction?

Truly not trying to be a jerk, just curious. If she's happy then all's good.
