What a nasty little gun....almost as nasty as Kel Tec's P-3AT. I wouldn't own either of those guns again, even if someone gave them to me.
Funny how there's something for everyone and we gun people are very opinionated :)
To the original poster, looks like you have a nice little list to get started with so now it's like Zamboni said....your best bet is to handle them all, compare them, and start narrowing down that list....and happy shopping! :)
You cats that pocket carry Glocks are better than I am. You must have some huge pockets.
Glock 22, 27 Gen 4
Ruger SP101 .357mag
S&W 637 Airweight
Ruger Single Six
Ruger Blackhawk Bisley 45 Colt
Mossberg 835 Grand Slam
Glock 26 or 27
S&W 642 or 627
All are good choices in my opinion.

No experience with anything other than my Ruger LCR .38 +P. Disappears in my front jeans pocket, IWB and even OWB under a polo shirt. Soft shooter. Smooooth trigger pull. All I got for ya.
For pocket duty, I use a S&W 442. I have an LCP, but it was too unreliable to carry.

The only one I have experience with is the Beretta nano. I can pocket carry it in most of my pants, even my jeans. It is very accurate and actually fun to shoot (which I hear some pocket guns are not). I got mine in early December and it has run flawlessly. It is also easy to carry IWB. It is the only gun I have tried to carry IWB under only a t-shirt, and it just dissappeared.
If you want a 40 for carry that is only .04" bigger than the Kahr pm9/cm9 try the pm/cm40, talk about a pocket pistol, how bout a pocket rocket! The recoil isn't that bad at all especially for self defense ranges.
