Not really the same category. The Kel Tec truly is a pocket gun. I actually carried a J-frame S&W .357 mag in the pocket today, and while it fit in the pocket, it is not the same as carrying the Kel-Tec. There isn't really any other gun in this league (especially not at the price Autrey's Armory is charging for it). It fits in the pocket almost like a lighter or a set of keys. You really do forget it is there.
