    I don't think so, Kel-tec .380 and an LCP are as good as it gets.

    you could look into the Kahr PM9:

    6+1 rounds of 9mm
    5.3" overall length
    4" tall
    .9" thick
    14 ounces

    :dunno:

    Old antiquated ammo is the cause there.

    PM9's are nice, but a little too big for pocket carry in most clothing.

    Kahr is supposedly coming out with/already has a micro 380. No idea whether it sucks or not though.

    I never said that. Just trying to keep the .45 or else sackriders at bay...

    That P380 looks very interesting, too bad it'll have a Kahr price tag to match.

    There isn't anything really smaller or lighter than the LCP (which is actually a lamer, more problematic version of the KelTec P3AT)

    I carry the P3AT loaded with Corbon DPX 380 +P and not worried about it. If you have to use a gun, you don't just shoot once hoping to be on the bullseye, you shoot, then shoot again and keep shooting until you know the threat is down, even if it means reloading.
    It may take one, it may take 6, at which point you should have used 7.

    I've argued that many times as well but there is a line to be drawn for practical defensive calibers.

    For me, that line stops at 9mm.

    I think there about $800 and have the same reliability as the P3AT/LCP
