Still looks to tall for a pocket pistol. IMO... and the barrel is only .7 tenths shorter than a M&P.... and .26 hundredths shorter than a Glock 26. And the Glock 26 is still shorter Height wise 4.17 vs the Rugers 4.5.. so all I see going for it is the .9 width. But then it is a single stack and you lose capacity.
So in terms against the M&P and Glock 26 yes it would be easier to pocket carry. Would I carry it as a EDC or Primary? Maybe, but it looks like a mouse/BUG to me.
