    I own many of the above mentioned pistols. I can and do carry the PM-9 in a front pocket (loose fit blue jeans). My Keltec P-11 would fit,but I think was too big. When comparing my 442 to my PM-9, the auto is slimmer and to me, less noticable. Now, if I can get my hands on a R-9, I might buy it. I just can't spend 1K without even holding one.

    J Frame a bit too large

    I know that some people swear by a J Frame in the pocket, and insist that it is a pocket pistol. But consider, the S&W 342PD Titanium is both bigger (though lighter) in all three dimensions than a Kel-Tec P-11, which is already too big to carry unobtrusively in a pocket (at least in MY pockets). I maintain that if you carry a J-Frame in your pocket you have mighty big pockets, and that people will see it and know what you have. But, to each his own! America, it's a great country!

    No revolver, with its cylinder bulge, can win the thin award like the R9 or P3-AT. Although ease of concealment and draw favor the slim pistol, the revolver has other advantages in power, reliability, and control. Those are the advantages of the primary, too. If one gun had to fulfill both pocket and primary roles, the wheelgun would win.

    Not necessarily KC. I for one have a dress code at work and have a limited range of clothes I can wear.

    Some people have to wear uniforms.

    Some people lack a Y chromosome and don't have access to any garments with functional pockets.
