    Here's the link for that "What's New" for Taurus. Check out the NEW Taurus firearms for 2013 Yes, I understand the link says something different but it leads directly to the new Taurus models. Two of them anyway.

    I'm pretty sure that if it were physically possible to make a 100% reliable 9mm Pocket Pistol the same size/price as a .380 Pocket Pistol then someone would have capitalized on the opportunity to corner that market.

    Besides, most of the .380 Pocket Pistols which are currently on the market have something of a reputation of being both uncomfortable to shoot and extremely difficult to hold on target due to the reduced size/weight increasing the felt recoil, (hence why Taurus is stressing that the Spectrum has more manageable recoil and positive grip as key features) so I imagine that a 9mm Pocket Pistol of the same size/weight would be virtually impossible to shoot accurately, and that's assuming that it doesn't fly right out of your hand on the first shot.

    There's a reason why the Ruger LC9 is larger and more expensive than an LCP, because an "LCP9" is impractical at best.

    I replaced my TCP with a Colt Mustang. It has a wider grip than the Bersa or the TCP and is much easier to control. It is also easier on the hand, IMO. I think the best option for a small single-stack 9mm is the 709. May have to buy one soon.

    Unlawful homicide is murder. Murder is a mental health issue, not a 2A issue.

    Grab a Gun has the Kimber Micro 9 on sale for $569.00...if I had some disposable dollars I might be all over that.

    ...Checked Sportsman Guide and they're at $550.00 with free shipping.

    Just a note!
    Both Sig Sauer and Kimber make a slightly larger version of the Mustang in 9 MM.
