In light of Bart Skelton's recent plug for the .380 ACP, it was time for another look at some .380 ACP options. One that Bart mentions is the Walther PPK, the signature pistol for Ian Fleming's James Bond (albeit in .32 ACP). SIG Sauer had a very similar-looking pistol in the P230/P232 series, which was slightly larger and had higher capacity than the Walther. 

SIG's answer to the PPK, the P230 was a compromise for a backup, concealed-carry pistol. When introduced in the 1970s, the micro-.380 ACP was still many years away from fruition, and truly tiny pocket guns were almost exclusively in .25 ACP or .22 LR. The SIG P230 (then P232) was offered as a small-but-still-usable variant that was on the hairy edge of both shootable and concealable.

For fans of the P230/P232, Crimson Trace still offers a lasergrip option. Available with a red laser sight, it installs in seconds and comes factory-sighted at 50 feet. So, if you prefer the P230/P232 for self-defense, Crimson Trace can put a laser on it.

MSRP: $339.
