Pocket 9 ???
So here's the deal. I have come to terms with the fact that I am a pocket carry kinda guy. I have a S&W 340 M&P in a Kramer pocket holster that is my constant companion. Can not tell you how much I love this little gem. Since getting it, I have found myself migrating to carrying only it. It's just so easy and works well with my dress code.
I also have a Colt Commander 1911 and a HK USP compact 9mm. Neither of these guns get used anymore. I'm not parting with the Commander for obvious reasons, but I've been kicking around the idea of swapping the HK for a 9mm that is suitable for pocket carry.
It seems to me my only choices are the Kel Tec or the Kahr PM9. Am I missing any others? I would like to keep weight right around a pound or less unloaded.

Yes - take a look at a Rohrbaugh R9S. DAO, 7 rounds of 9mm in the smallest package on the market.

KelTec PF-9. Got mine for $265 delivered, AND it can shoot +P ammo without disintegrating. I think Rohrbaugh advises against +P.

Rounds 7 ( 6)
Weight unloaded (no magazine) : 12.7 oz. (12.8)
Loaded magazine : 2.8 oz.
Length : 5.85" (5.2")

i'd get a stub nose 9mm revolver if I wanted a pocket 9mm. Just me though.

Keltec > skyy. Why? ALOT better warrenty/product support,been around longer (has more of a chance osticking around to actually be there if they need to stand by their warrenty.) More holster selection, been on the market longer therefore is more "proven" to be a reliable firearm.
I'm a HUGE fan of keltec. They are inexpensive. Easy to conceal.Fairly accurate for such a small size,Every one I've ever shot goes "bang" every time the trigger is pulled.

Bought first PF9 Dec. "06. Liked it so well, I bought another one Dec.
'07. First one has 1000+ rounds thru it and newest one maybe 300+. No problems with either. Just polished ramp, put 200 rounds through them to get 'em broke in and pocket carry one of them in a pocket holster as backup in cooler weather and primary in "shorts and t shirt" season.

I routinely pocket carry an M&P 9c. A touch big, but 12 rounds of 9mm in a compact package.

PF9 for me when I need deep conceal or pocket carry of a 9mm. The price is right and it is dependable. I got mine new in 2007 in GA for $280 NIB out the door. So most can be had for $260-$350 depending on area.

I had never heard of this gun but doesn't it sound like a P-11? A bit bigger and with a safety but doesn't it have the same type trigger everyone hates bout the p-11??

Excellent feedback guys. Thanks a million. You have given me much to think about. Won't be rushing into this one.
I had kindof ruled out the PF9, but your reports are positve. Maybe something to consider.
FWIW, I think the HK USPc is sold. Looks like I have $600 and change to "play" with.

At 16 ounces empty weight, I believe the Kahr PM9 is the only real contender for your pocket carry application.
