    Just watching videos to determine some choices for EDC ammo. Came across this video:

    The interesting part starts at 5:35 or so into the video, make sure to watch past the 12:00 mark:

    Where's the fun in that? You would miss the bottle explosions. Seeing is believing.

    But OK, bigger guns make bigger holes, even if they're handguns. :p

    Paul is a big favorite gun centered YouTuber in my book. He’s pretty realistic in his tests, good advice, and non-political in his videos.

    This guy puts other youtuber's gun videos to shame. I have always enjoyed his high tech meat target.

    LOL I just ordered a p-32. My thinking being it is absolutely the smallest gun I could consider as a backup EDC when I would otherwise carry nothing I consider the tiny NAA .22lr's too dangerous for EDC except the one that folds into its holster).

    I kind of like .32. I can shoot it one-handed with either hand, and not have to worry about permanent hearing damage. Plus, with the low recoil, I can shoot it really fast.

    One, I love Paul Harrell. two, I would love to see him test the Lehigh and Underwood ammo that seems to have really changed the dynamics of the caliber. Also, he might have shown or talked about the Keltec P32. About the same size as a lot of 380's, but hey, it only weighs 6 1/2 oz.
    He was big on shot placement. That is one of the keys in carrying a pocket gun. Train in diligently with one and they can be extremely accurate at short ranges. And they can be fast to the draw. The Keltec loaded with 8 rounds of ammo is deadly. I have trained steadily with pocket guns for a decade. 8 fast shots to the head at 10yds is not unrealistic and actually not hard to do with a 380 and the Keltec P32 is crazy mild to shoot. And YES, so easy to carry no matter where you go.
    Again, it only weighs 6 1/2 ounces.

    I love it when someone says that 8 rounds of that Bullet that will come sizzling into their face and neck is a laughing matter.

    Grandpa carried a Savage 32 for years, grandma had one under the pillow. One night in 1959 some mook, with a gun, tried to break in. He left in body bag.

    My Savage 1907 32acp is all loaded up to go to the range tomorrow. Ten rounds quick! Actually eleven since I generally carry 10 +1.

    I think a walther pp-ppk in .32 acp-.380 acp would be my choice if I were to carry a small caliber pistol.

    I've tried a couple PPKs but in my hand it is simply a Slice-n-Dice. The Sig P230 or EG Makarov or Walther PP or CZ 50 or Bernardelli Model 60 all work perfectly. I've never tried the PPK/S but it too might fit my hand.

    What classes did you attend in your training?

    Some clarification please:

    What does "extremely accurate at short ranges" mean? How accurate? At what "ranges"?

    How fast is "fast to the draw"? Drawing from what position? Or holster?

    How have you demonstrated that "the Keltec loaded with 8 rounds of ammo is deadly"?

    And, most interestingly, how fast is "8 fast shots to the head at 10 yds"? Are either the shooter or the target moving? One hand or two on the gun? Which pocket gun works best for you?

    A number without an associated unit isn't very useful. Surely, a written assertion without numbers OR units is even less useful.

    Also, pics or videos can provide great details.

    In your decade of training, I would suppose that you've gathered some numbers with units, or pics/videos to back up these assertions.

    Paul Harrell certainly does this for every assertion like yours that HE makes...

    I should say extremely accurate for myself. Or easy to bring the gun up to point and shoot at do head shots indoors or outdoor with steel plates. I do not bench shoot these guns, 95% is fast shooting these guns. I have shot these guns from the pocket and from the hip. I find the small size easy to pull and point and shoot.
    No I have not demonstrated that the Keltec loaded with 8 rounds of ammo to the face would be deadly. I think common sense would dictate that. You might want to do your own research on Underwood Ammo and ballistics.
    Over the years I have posted pics but never done any Youtube videos or other videos. Nor do I plan to. I think there are plenty of folks out there now that should satisfy ou.
    I do not claim to be a Professional, never have. I am a pocket gun enthusiast that does train with them often, and have for the Past 10 years. I am sorry I upset you to the point of making a post like this
    . I am just giving my personal feeling toward the different pocket guns that I have shot for so long. If you do not like my opinions that is fine. I will respect yours and hope you do the same.

    I am glad you like Paul Harrell, I enjoy him as well.And I do not in anyway claim to have his expertise or knowledge and certainly not his resources or time to do youtube video's, certainly NO desire to do so.. Thank you for your post.

    I took no offense and appreciate your courteous response.

    I just wanted to know how much credibility I should give to your claims.

    Now I know.

    I asked this before but you never responded (maybe I'm on ignore). Could you elaborate on your training? Aside from the basic class for your CHP, what other classes have you taken?
