I didn’t feel the Rami had any real advantage with carry over the PCR.  The Rami is quite thick for a gun that size.

I spend a lot of time driving and find my Rami BD w/10rd mag to be much more comfortable than my P-01. I carry owb in a TT Gunleather pancake holster.

I have both. I have carried the RAMI BD every day, all day in an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck III for at least 4 years. I have over 20,000 rounds through it and still going strong. Broke a trigger return spring at about 10k rounds and ended up getting the CGW defensive package for it while it was apart. Made a good gun better.

The PCR I hardly shoot, but when I do I really like the feel of the grips over the RAMI, but that comes at a cost of harder to conceal. It's just a little bigger than RAMI in every way (although it feels lighter) so it is harder for me to conceal. If I carried open I might use the PCR, but for now RAMI is my preference.

I bought the PCR because I looked forever for another RAMI BD for a backup in case my main carry was down again, The RAMI BDs I found seemed to all start at $600 (+shipping and transfer fees to get it here). Closing night of a gun show last month I wandered around one last time and there sat a "used" (no signs of ever being fired) 2009 RAMI BD for $399. Needless to say, it went home with me. I need to put the carry package and short reset on it to make them match, but pretty pleased to have a proper backup now. 

Accuracy all depends on the ammunition. PCR likes one load, RAMI likes another. Both are tack drivers when you find what they prefer.

I have to agree "ugly duckling" may be strong language? C'mon Papa,
I think the RAMIs are hot, especially the BDs!!!
Hi cousinmark,
"Ugly Duckling" was used comparatively; I agree it's one of the best-looking (if not the best-looking) Subcompact extant, but imho compared to the sculpted beauty of the rest of the non-plastic (except Phantom*) family, particularly in terms of the classic swept chamfer behind around and above the trigger guard, it suddenly takes on a plain-Jane wallflower look. Again, compared to the unparalleled beauty of its traditional now-classic siblings the CZ 75 and CZ 97. Again imho: was taught long ago "there's no accounting for some people's taste." Discretion the better part of valor restrains me from citing a memorable CZ Forum example...
