    Pocket carry either one of these....



    And this one....the negative things I have heard about the R9, I have never experienced, makes me think that most of the comments are from those who do not nor have ever actually owned the gun, but repeat what they hear from others who have never owned one. Although, not a range gun, but that's not the purpose of a pocket gun anyway, mine has been very realible.

    Summers in Kansas are hot and sticky. Shorts and T-shirts are the dress code.
    I put the .45ACP in the gun safe and begin to carry my NAA .22 Mag. in my pocket or my .32NAA in a belt holster. I think most 'encounters' occur within 15feet or even closer. (Any further away and I'm going to run vs. pull my piece).
    I certainly don't feel 'undergunned' with either of them.
    Many years ago I was hit in the right cheek by a shotgun pellet, (8 shot), while hunting quail in the Senora Desert with my best friend. He was about 10 yards from me. It felt like a left hook by Mike Tyson!!! If a tiny pellet can hit that hard, I can't imagine what a .22 Mag HP or a .32 cal., 60gr. HP would do!!!

    +1 here too. I carry my NAA .22 Magnum in the front pocket of my shorts.

    The new Smith & Wesson Night Guard series has several models that are pocket sized in primary calibers:
    325 - .45ACP
    327 - .357 Mag
    329 - .44 Mag
    386 - .357 Mag
    396 - .44 Special

    I carry a Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 Spec. in a K&D pocket holster as a BUG sometimes.



    I also sometimes carry it in a K & D Laredo as my primary.



    I prefer the .44 Special to .357 Mag because it is not uncomfortable to shoot and coming out of a 2.75" barrel the speed is just about the same, but the .44 bullet has a bigger diameter and weighs more.

    True Pocket pistol worthy of primary firearm status?

    Hummmm?

    One would be the Semmerling LM4 - the tiny pocket .45 acp.
    It is magazine fed but you need to run the slide forward after every shot to eject the fired round and chamber the new one.

    It's NOT a semi-auto even though it looks like one.

    It's a beautiful firearm but, it's EXTREMELY expensive.

    It's an incredible piece of machenery though and I wish I could justify the cost of owning one.
    It's about $2,400

    Pick your pocket.

    Big Pockets ... SW snub 44 spl or SW snub 38

    Average Pockets ... KT P3AT 380

    As a result of this thread might look into an R9.

    Going along the lines of what QK said, And if you can find one. I sometimes use my old AMT backup in 45 Cal, AMT's quality control was at Spotty at best, I lucked out and got a good one, Just trying to give you options. Good luck in your search.

    I would lover to have the Kahr, R9 or Colt Mustang. However my pocket book says a P3AT so I will stick with that at least for a while.

    I have found my J frame works in cargo shorts (with deep pockets) and in jeans with deep pockets. Other than that, it is a bit bulky for anything else.

    The Kahr PM-9 with a pocket holster works well for me.

    My 32 seecamp is flawless. I've got a .380 seecamp on order, but that'll take another 10 months.

    I know I can (an have) easily concealed my 5" kimber IWB with 2 additional magazines under an untucked shirt. However, I'm simply not going to do that every day.

    The seecamp remains my primary.

    I can't believe nobody said it yet!!! "Shot placement trumps caliber!!!!"

    (someone HAS to have said that in this thread, the thread's just not complete without it...)

    Kel Tec has the PF9 that is light and flat and in 9mm. A good sized pocket gun for the money if the Kahr PM9 is too expensive.

    The Kahr PM9 is probably the closest to what you are looking for in a pocket carry primary. In fact I am thinking of going this route myself and carrying my Glock 26 in the cooler months.

    I carry my S&W 60LS in a pocket holster very comfortably. But it doesn't just disappear like the Ruger LCP.

    I CAN carry my Springfield XD.40 Subcompact in a front pants pocket in a pocket holster, but it's a real pocketful and prints pretty badly.

    When it comes to concealed weapons, compromise is everything -- you just have to find out which compromised you are willing to make and which you are not.
