I am looking into getting a pocket gun. I am really thinking about getting S&W 642. I had a kel-tec 380 but sold it. It was okay but not the best. Can someone give some input on what is out there and what my options maybe.

You can't go wrong with any S&W snubbie. I carry one in the pocket with a DeSantis pocket holster. Extremely reliable, and easy to reach for when needed.
Last month I bought a 442 with CT grips and love it. I still need to get a pocket holster though.
I carry a Taurus 85 CH Ultralight with Lasergrips in either a Smartcarry or pocket holster. It's a great little revolver, light and surprisingly accurate - 2.5" at 15 yards.
Define pocket gun......
BTW, the LWS .380 has the identical footprint if you prefer......and both are absolute little gems.

.380 pmk Walthers sister w/o the price tag almost thousand rounds.she shoots 4" groups 15 yards great gun had it 15 years
Take a look at the NAA Guardians, I have one in 32 acp with gutter sniping and one in 32acp. These are great liitle guns. I will also consider a Ruger LCP after the buggs are worked out. I don't like a snubnose revolver for pocket carry, to thick for my prefrence.

SW 642 is a great gun, but a bit larger than the Keltec. I find the Keltec easier to drop in a pocket anytime. The 642 takes a bit more for me to hide, but is still classed as a pocket gun.
Seecamps, NAA Guardians, etc. You don't like KTs, so go with the steel versions. You'll like them.

While the J-frames are considered pocket guns, I find them rather large for pocket carry except for maybe cargo or coat pockets. My Kel-Tec, on the other hand, just disappears in my pockets. Granted you don't like the Kel-Tecs, so check out some of the others mentioned like the Seecamps and NAA Guardians. You could also wait for Kahr's P380 which should be pocketable.
The J frames are nice pocket guns but I like my P3AT much better for pocket carry.I guess I just got lucky to get a good one.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!

Kel-Tec P32 for me. Love it.
