    Sights on pocket 380's are pointless whether they are 'good' or not, it's a point and shoot gun, best to train that way.

    You posted here asking for help and then respond with an antagonistic post like this. I don't think you'll get much yardage like that.

    Moving forward, there have been some good suggestions here. Perhaps detailing what you don't like about the LCP, LC9, PF9 or P11, you might get a few more palatable suggestions.

    I have no problem recommending the M&P Shield. I have both, LCP and Shield. The Shield would be a good replacement for the little .380.

    If you're going to step up with a slightly larger size gun, you may as well step up in caliber as well. The Shield does that.

    While the Shield may not be "the best" pocket carry gun, it can be pocket carried adequately (depending on the size of the pockets). Just know that like anything, what works for one person, may not work for everyone.

    I have a DB9 that rides in my pocket if I need something small/easy to carry.

    It definitely is a picky eater and won't shoot everything flawlessly like it's older "cousins". (Glock, XD, etc. etc.) My experience has been dirty brass causes FTE malfunctions in these little guys. I carry it with 124gr golden sabers so the nickel plating makes it work slick. Over 100 rounds just in the golden sabers through it and 0 malfunctions with that ammo.

    i have both the lcp and lcr,i really don't find the lcr any more difficult to pocket carry then the lcp, plus you have .38+p capability.I'd recommend giving the Ruger lcr some consideration...

    An LCR would be a nice choice. I would get the .357 magnun one, and carry + p .38s.

    I would recommend against the Taurus TCP, they just don't seem to be built right, I have one and may just sell it in a gun buy-off, not sure I'd feel right selling it to anyone that might intend to actually use it.

No LC9 or PF9 or P11 suggestions. Have had and disliked all three. As it stands I already have a G23 and G23, so I don't need anything as large as the G23.

    So far the guns that I am considering are the Taurus 85 ultra-lite and TCP 380, S&W 637 (can't find one in stock anywhere) and bodyguard 380. Also considering the Diamondback 380 and I.O. Inc Hellcat.

    Looking for opinions on those considerations and other recommendations. Thank you
    forget .38sp and .380. Stick with 9mm for SD/HD. 9mm is a far more powerful round than either of the other two options, and you may need that power to penetrate heavy layered clothing, or shatter the pelvis of a charging attacker. Center of mass/high center is lethal, but it's not always a stopping shot. It can take a person a while to bleed out from even a shot to the heart. A shot to the pelvis, shattering the hips or pelvis when they are charging you though, will stop them in one step. The legs can't function without the supporting structure of the hips. This area is also below the line of body armor, moves less and is a larger target than the head, and has a tremendous amount of blood flow.

    That said, Look at the S&W M&P Shield, and consider buying Trijicon or similar night sights for it, and use the extended magazine that gives you the 4th finger grip buttplate.

    That'd be my recommendation.

    Boberg XR9-S 9mm slightly larger than an LCP.

    As I said earlier, if I can conceal my G27 I do, I am simply getting a replacement for my pocket/backup gun. There are times that my attire prevents me from carrying a larger caliber, but the gun I have on me is better than the one that I didn't, hence the reason for the size restriction. It needs to be something that will completely disappear in a pocket.

    I already went out and bought the DB380. Found an amazing deal on it, had the best feeling trigger of the group and was the most comfortable to conceal and hold.

    If you're worried about the Shield's size, check out videos about this gun on Youtube by "FaliaPhotography"
    She's slender, tiny, and it's her favorite carry gun, even in tight fitting clothing. Just sayin'
