    For some unknown reason, I have developed a "want" for a .22lr pocket pistol. Been looking at the Beretta Model 21 Bobcat and the Ruger LCP in .22lr mostly. Your opinions on either of these, or perhaps another perhaps are appreciated. The only thing I am talking aboiut is true pocket guns. I don't need an another M&P .22 Compact or PPK/S or Ruger MKIV; I want a teeny-tiny-itsy-bitsy-pocket-pistola.

    Of those 2, I would prefer the LCP.

    Have you looked at the KelTec P32?
    It's just as small and light, and center fire 32cap is a lot more reliable than any rimfire.
    They are somewhat hard to find right now.

    Taurus makes a good one in their PT-22. It's basically a Beretta 21A clone, a tip up barrel, single stack (8 rounds, I believe) .22LR mouse gun, but it's DAO with a bobbed hammer. Smoother draw from the pocket.

    Thanks, but I want a pocket pistol in .22lr...I have plenty of small carry options; I want a .22lr pocket gun for a fun gun, if that makes sense.

    I have a NAA Black widow 5 round revolver that fits in a shirt pocket even with the crossbreed holster but the barrel is under 2” so I don’t think it’s very accurate or at least not with me holding it.

    Ruger would be my first pick. Wife had a Taurus PT22 that was a jam-o-matic

    Beretta 21a loaded with CCI Stingers makes a nice little piece.

    My wife bought us a pair, they were ammo sensitive, mine like Mini-Mags and Aguilar HV, hers likes standard velocity from every manufacturer she has tried. Do your homework if you get this little gun.

    I have a Taurus PT22. It will jam occasionally, but I don't know that it's any worse than any other semi-auto .22.
