    For pocket carry, I prefer my Keltec P 3 AT, small, light and reliable

    Another +1 for the Seecamp LWS32 for me..

    I just got one a few months ago and I love it. It goes literally everywhere with me now.

    Okay, I'll throw a monkey wrench in the thread, the Walther PPS. A great blend of size, performance, in an easy to shoot package S3ymour has field test of the gun in this category. And yes, I have one.

    Although I like the size of the p3at, I just had to go w/ a 9mm. I own the pm9 and think its a great gun, with a few caveats:
    You need larger jean pockets. I wear Carharts and don have problems w/ them or my other 'carpenter' style pants. Tighter fit and more 'fashion' jean pockets become a problem. Dress pants don't seem to have enough structure, and the gun pulls them down and it flops around, no matter what pocket holster I use. It needs the break-in period! After that its smooth sailing, but don't skip it. Finally, it's expensive. It's almost 3x the cost of a p3at, but I think it was worth it.

    On one hand the Kahr PM9 is the answer, but on the other hand the P-3AT might be for the application in question. The Seecamp .32 might even be "it", but is the Seecamp still picky about ammo? If not, I might go with that. If so, it's a tossup between the PM9 and P-3AT begrudgingly leaning towards the Kel-Tec because of a lot of dress pants wearing. The PF9 and PPS are interesting, but might be slightly too big.

    P3AT for true pocket carry because of the dimensions and weight, the 2nd gen versions are a real improvement over earlier ones. I do think the seecamp and R9 are good if you don't mind the weight and can afford it. Then the PM9; an ideal CCW piece but I would worry that it's a bit snappy due to the weight and therefore I wouldn't enjoy practicing with it. I have the P9 and it's a tad snappy. I also think a J frame S&W Airweight .38 is outstanding. And today I bought an MK9 not for pocket carry but for IWB. It's heavy but the dimensions are quite a bit smaller than my P9 so I believe it'll conceal even better than my P9 and the weight (I'm hoping), will make it at least as shootable as my P9 yet with only one less round and with only a two finger grip. Actually my pinkie wraps pretty well around the butt.

    All of these are good but I think you really need the P3AT plus one other to cover the range of pockets in a regular wardrobe. The P3AT is the true anywhere gun in any pocket. The J frame and then the PM9 are for the middle of the road to larger pockets, and in heavy pants with a good belt the seecamps, NAA guardians and even my MK9 can be pocket carried.

    P3AT is a perfect pocket gun. Buy it.

    Remember to consider how easy it is to draw the weapon as well as putting it in the pocket!

    I just got an MK9 for IWB but tried it on for size in my pocket. It goes in good and fits, and in heavy pants I can see it working for pocket carry but when I grab it to draw, it's tight coming out so it's slow.

    Just a thought....

    The winner is a PM9 all black with night sights in an Andrews front pocket holster.

    I like my p3at, but it is not reliable out of the box. If I can ever get it purring, it'll be my always friend, but for now i just feel like "it's better than nothing".
