Does a Springfield XDE 45 count as a mouse gun? I had a Ruger LC9S as my carry pistol but since I’ve become so accustomed to hammer-fired pistols, the little Ruger wasn’t gonna do it for me anymore so out with the old, and in with the new...

Don't think even close. "Mouse gun" is more in the line of the Kel-Tec P32, P3at, Ruger LCP, Taurus Spectrum. Mostly 380 acp or 32 acp that will disappear in most any pocket.
Even Glock's entry, the G42 is too big to be a true "mouse gun".
Maybe wee need another term. Like "Hamster" gun. Same Idea as a mouse, but a bit bigger.

I think you may be right but I was part of another forum who kinda head a little bit of it’s head up it’s own ass where a few members felt as though if the gun fits in a pocket or doesn’t necessarily fit one’s hand then it’s a mouse gun.

But yeah, I figured the only real qualifying mouse gun I had was my NAA 22 magnum revolver, or maybe my Ruger LC9S....

Hamster gun, I like that. A Tokarev may fit in that, it's only 30 cal but have to have really big pockets to fit it.

Pulling a carry gun is for when you are out of options, avoidance and retreat if possible are the plan before that.
Which is why a mouse gun should be your last option. I carry a fullsize Glock 99% of the time.

My "big" mouse gun is a Ruger LCP. But I have also carried a Bauer .25 and a NAA Sheriff in .22 mag. My EDC is a P365.

in the late 80s the Bersa 383A was termed a "rat gun" because it was too big to be called a mouse gun but not of a "serious" caliber either. I guess this would have included the walther pp/ppk series guns.

Even a justified shooting will have very serious consequences.

Always thought a shortened up "compact" Tokarev, better yet M57, would be a really cool CCW gun. With the 7.62X25 round being a real zinger.

I agree, I would love to see a "modern" style plastic wonder gun in a 7.62x25. I have a fair share of guns in that caliber and I really like it, don't like reloading it so much but is a fun round. I do have a Zastava M70 in 32acp which is kind of like a baby Tok.
