I got rid of the Ruger LCP, it was a reliable gun, the 380 ballistics left me wanting a more powerful round.
I have been pocket carrying my Kahr PM9 when possible, I appendix carry it also. I am looking at a S&W 442/642 or Ruger SP-101 to give more options.
Here is how I see the S&W 442/642, I will take my Uncle Mike's size 3 pocket holster with me to the GS, if I truly can pocket carry it with ease that will be the next purchase.
If the 442/642 is not that easy or comfortable to pocket carry for me, that leaves IWB so the Ruger SP-101 will be my choice for the next purchase. I will have options in ammo and power level.
Is my thinking making sense with the criteria I have given, or am I missing some other models or makes that would serve me better?
