for years, my primary pocket carry gun was a Smith & Wesson 642, 5-shot Airweight J-frame with one or two reloads.
i have since replaced the Smith with a Kahr CM-9 because i can shoot it much better than i can the revolver.
while i prefer to carry a holstered gun, i often rely on just a pocket gun when i know i may have to remove my cover garment.

If you are content with the 38 then I am happy for you. After 3 decades of law enforcement I am well aware of liability issues. My main concern is winning the fight.
My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

What? No D-frame Colts?
Not a thing wrong with all the Smiths and Rugers mentioned here, but the venerable D-frame Colt Detective Special should not be left out. Biggest difference is the 6 round cylinder. The OP asked if five was enough and I ask, "Why settle for 5 when you can have 6?"

My wife's snubbie just rides in a consul of either vehicle.
It's too heavy for her purse and recoils so bad she hates it. My father in law is of the mind that women are too stupid to operate a semi auto.
I don't mind shooting it. I have carried it as a BUG but growing up in Montana wearing western cut jeans it's hard to pocket with a holster.
Not sure about primary. For me I prefer higher capacity and striker fire pistols. Unless it's a BFG.

You used post #357 for that, too bad.
