    I got a NIB Kahr MK9 Elite 98... it was noticably smaller than the G26 and not even that much larger than the KT P32 and around the same size as the KT 9mm... it's heavy though but the weight was not as important as the size to caliber ratio.

    A .38 in the pocket beats a .45 at home!

    But why would the .45 be at home?

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Maybe you decided you didn't want to carry a .45 just to go get a bite to eat, or some other quick trip. Maybe when it gets too warm out to lug around a compact or full size .45, a pocket carry piece will come in handy. I started out carrying full size guns, but after awhile it becomes a hassle. Sometimes I just wanna slip a pocket gun into my pocket and go.

    I'm a delivery driver and if I was made by my work or a customer it would be bad. So I use a Kel-tec P38T. and a simple pocket holster with woolrich elite tactical shorts I use the magazine pockets to hold a nextel and my own cell which cover up the gun in small pocket holster nicely. Also I carry an extra magazine in the other front pocket. I shoot Winchester Rangers and wear a wilderness tactical belt with velcro A bonus of the pants is I don't sit on my wallet when I drive since it is in a deep pocket!!!

    Most of the time I feel safe but sometimes I end up in ghetto places. I plan on getting an LCP or a P380 as finances allow. I have faith In my ability to use the 380 rangers (tallons) as an effective man stopper... Don't mess with the delivery driver

    Kahr PM9. 7 rounds in the pistol, 2 more 7 round mags = 21 rounds of 9mm+P firepower. You'll be better armed than the cops of yesteryear, with their 6 shot .38's and the typical 2 speedloaders.

    Nothing compares to a PM9 for pocket carry, IMHO.
    Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.

    Would you feel more comforted by a Desert Eagle?

    Unless you're wearing wranglers or are a female, the j frame should fit in your pocket just fine. 15 oz for the airweight series, lighter for the exotic airlites. I recently switched my carry load to the CorBon DPX in 38 and do not at all feel undergunned. I've been practicing a lot lately. I might buy a Rohrbaugh or PM9 at some point, but a dead-reliable revolver in your pocket is a comforting thing to have. Mine is in my (jeans) pocket right now, like it is every day.

    "Name some TRUE pocket pistols worthy of primary weapon status."

    The S&W J-frame line and the appropriate Colt D-frame models.

    +1 here; a 340PD in my pocket gives me .357 or .38 +p at the tip of my finger. The scandium carries well and hammerless is the only way to go for j-frame pocket carry. It may be a strong kicker but I'll be just have to weigh that information when I really NEED it!
