    I'm looking for a cheap carry gun, and the Denali is about as cheap as it gets. Anyone have one?

    Do not have any experience, but I like it. Kind of what I wish Hi Point had done size wise.

    Yea, they really need a miniaturized version. The Denali looks like a nice little pocket pistol for under $150.

    Their Patriot series looks promising too.

    For another $100+, and it's a little bigger and heavier.

    I was researching cobra handguns while I was looking into Hi Points. From what I gathered. All the negative stuff that is said about Hi point pistols actually happens with Cobra handguns. Some people get them to run right though. I would probably get a Jimenez before a Cobra.
     
  7. Ruger LCP are fairly cheap at around $300 and the new model has an improved trigger and sights.

    good review. I'd like to read his experience shooting it, do you have a link? For $140, for a get off me gun, it fits in my budget. I like that it's light, even if it kicks like a mule.

    I didn't have time to dig through threads to find his review but here is a video showing someone putting 50 rounds through the Denali quickly:

    The guy who did the review I linked to before said he encountered a few nosedives but that is a common issue with cheap mags and is easily ironed out in my experience.

    Thanks. Looks like it worked pretty well for him.
     
  12. I have a chrome Cobra FS380 and works pretty good.Best $70 I ever spent.

    I have a Cobra CA32. the pin holding the ejector worked itself out and caused a nasty jam, less than 100 rounds through it. I just tapped it back in, it will work for a while. I would grab a Denali, but I really don't want a safety on my carry. The Diamondback DB380 looks good, another $100, but oh well.
     
  14. SCCYs are excellent as well.Make sure it's the CPX-2 though.

    Not in the same size class as the Denali, which competes in size against the host of pocket 380's spawned by the Kel Tec P3AT. The SCCY offerings are a good size or two up from that.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Yeah, the SCCY pistols are even a bit larger in the grip area than the Kel Tec P11 that they're based around. They're a medium sized handgun while the Denali is considerably smaller, although it is much wider than your average pocket .380 these days.
