I have the Ruger SP101 also......, but I also have the Ruger LCR in 38+p. I think the LCR would make a great pocket carry handgun. Very light at 13.5oz unloaded and you can carry some very effective rounds for it. Personally, I don't like pocket carry and would much prefer iwb carry. I have a Glock26 that nearly disappears in a tuckable holster carried on my appendix (left side). It shoots like a fullsized handgun, carries 10+1 of 9mm+p and is very reliable. I think you could easily carry it or one of the many single stack 9's in a "tuckable" holster.
academy sports and outdoors had it for $479.
Having a similar problem, I decided on a two-fer...I got the 238 and the 938. One carries just about as easily as the other. Both vanish under a sport coat if I decide to carry on the belt or iwb (Galco Summer Comfort's really good for this, and you can snap it on and off). Both vanish in a pocket, sometimes the 238 wins out depening on the kind of pants I'm wearing (suit pants, 238 is a bit lighter so it doesn't pull down quite as much).
I'm really enjoying both these little blasters...
Nice choice on the Sig P238.
I went with the Sig P938 for pocket carry since my other handguns are 9mm...I didn't want to have to start stocking up on another caliber just yet.

I am going to purchase some buffalo bore 380+p in both hardcast and JHP. I have been doing some reaserch on them and they should penetrate the standard 12", but I will do my own research too. Right now I'm using speer gold dots.
If I had to keep my shirt tucked I would pocket carry and or use a tuck-able holster. Belly bands are ok but, warm in summer.
