I have owned and carried a Tomcat for two years.It was my gun of choice for many reasons. 1. so concealeable no one knows I carry. 2. small enough so you ALWAYS carry. 3. reliable(after 200 rounds broken in not a single ftf or fte in the next 1000 rounds. ANY ammo. 4.It will hit a dinner plate at 15 yards every time. 5. you can disassemble and clean it in 5 minutes. This gun is no joke! Nice features like tip-up barrel and single/double action make this a superb small ccw. I also own an LC9 but find the tomcat shoots smoother and straighter!
