Smallest centerfire that shoots like an absolute dream is the Glock 42 .380, it's about like shooting a .22LR. I've had other small 380's (Ruger and Kahr) and they're nowhere close to the G42.

I just have to throw this in here just for kicks and giggles.
I consider it to be a serious gun, others will disagree.
Mine is in .45 Colt (Long Colt for the pedantic) and I use stout Buffalo Bore loads.
I am totally, comfortably, consistently center-body-mass accurate with both barrels at 20 yards. (Mine is the California model that doesn't acommodate 410 shot shells, so it has more rifling than those that do).
It will slip right into my blue jeans pocket.
Any perp finding himself staring down those two gaping bores and keeps coming is flat insane.
Recoil is stout, but for me entirely comfortable.

I’m not very accurate with small handguns. My large hands do not do well with small or thin grips. The smallest gun that I can shoot accurately, consistently is my Sig P239. If I miss the 1.5” target at 7 yards, I’m not a happy camper. The P239 shoots just as well as my Sig P226 at 7 yards.

The smallest pistol I shoot accurately at 7 yards or so are actually two.

The Taurus 732 and the Taurus PLY-22 pistols.

Only one, and it'a really not all that small, but the CZ P-10S is the smallest "subcompact" I can shoot decently...I could tell you, but I think I'd rather show you...
