Since my earlier post on this thread, I purchased a S&W, M&P 340 Centennial. Took it to the range today and it appears I can handle Winchester, 110 gr. JHP self defense loads in it. (I don't think I'll be practicing much with them, (they do 'bite'), but 5 to 10 ronds at the end of a range session is ok.
The pistol is light, (13 ounces unloaded), small framed and has a tritium front night sight. If I chose to carry it in a front pocket, it would be just fine but I really prefer a strong side belt holster. Wearing a 'bowling shirt' or a T-shirt untucked, the gun is invisible!!

I wear pleated dress slacks, in the office, and have been carrying my PT-145, in my right front pocket for over 3 years now. I have two Police officers that work for me, part time, and neither noticed that I was even carrying, until one day I pulled the gun out, in my office, to dig for a small screw I thought I had inadvertently let fall into that pocket. They were both amazed that I could carry that gun and that neither one had noticed. I also have a Keltec P-11 that I wear with my dress suit since the pants fit tighter and the Taurus prints in the slacks. I have also carried a 2" DAO Ruger SP-101 in an Uncle Mikes pocket holster without anyone noticing. I'm pretty lucky that I am 6'8" and 300lbs and the weight of the gun is really not a big issue for me.
