    I've had and sold them all except for a S&W no-lock 442 in an Andrews pocket holster and 125 gr. Gold Dots.

    I have carried a Colt Mustang, not so big, in an Andrews pocket holster, and S&W 99c .40 in a modified Uncle Mikes #1, also in front right pants pocket.

    I could use a slightly deeper pocket but have not yet had to ask my wife to lengthen the pocket--something she says is easy for her to do. Some brands and styles of blue jeans seem to have wider and deeper pockets than others, but I can't tell you which off the top of my head.

    G-26 in cargo pants, different pocket holsters.

    I strongly believe in having only one gun for carry, the one I trained for over 10 years, many thousand rds, in different circumstances; I would never even think of carrying different guns depending on season, dress, mood, whatever; I know first hand what stress does to your body and mind, and I am not really a very emotional person.

    SP101 in Kramer pocket holster. Yes, it actually works with some pants, such as Wrangler Riatas.

    If you want bigger, why not go to an IWB?

    I live in a very warn part of the world. Lots of light clothing, shorts, etc... almost year round. Don't want sweaty gun rig inside my clothing if possible. Also, I have gotten used to front pocket but am thinking of going bigger.

    Well, for the most part I agree with you and that’s part of the reason I’m selling my last auto. However, I do subscribe to having a spare revolver of the same style and configuration with only the weight being different. (alloy vs. steal) Even so, I may well drop the alloy and have two 640's with one being slightly more refined ($$) than the other.

    Usually it just my P-3AT in a Fist #5 pocket holster, but I have carried my S&W 637...

    My Walther PPS 9mm fits in every front pocket that I own. Shorts, jeans, casual slacks and suits. So does my S&W342PD but the PPS is thinner and holds more rounds.

    3" .45 ACP 1911 with an Uncle Mike's #4 Inside-the-Pocket holster. Works great with cargo pants/shorts.

    If somebody did happen to notice the slight bulge, they'd have no idea if it's a wallet, daytimer or what.

    Haven't been outed yet.

    Interesting...my PPS is my EDC but I couldn't manage it in the pocket of anything but some of my cargo shorts. I only pocket carry my P3AT in a Fist holster.

    The PPS is my main BUG - front left pocket. When itis the main carry, it goes in the front right pocket and a KT P3AT goes in the left rear a BUG. I use to carry a G26/27 for backup but the PPS is much thinner.
