    Throw in Your Pocket Gun?

    Postby Armyguy on Fri 14 Aug 2009 7:15 pm
    Besides my Glock 26 for EDC, I want to get a small pistol or revolver that can easily be dropped in my pocket. Sort of a quick "on-the-go" gun that is simple to carry. I like the idea of a Ruger LCP with a side clip to just hang inside my belt line. I also like the Kel-tec PF-9 for pocket carry. A Ruger LCR could do the trick, but getting a little bigger. What are your thoughts and recommendation on this? What small "on-the-go" gun do you carry or recomend?

    Well, tastes vary...

    I have two such firearms I consider 'drop in the pocket' guns.

    My KelTec P-3AT, and a S&W 637.

    Note: I like the looks of the LCR, but I would prefer to let it be out on the market for a while before buying one. OMO

    My Glock 26 IS my pocket gun. My sidearm is an XD45, but I don't always carry it. Regardless whether or not I do carry the XD, my G26is always in my right front pocket.

    My Ruger SP101 .357, along with a speed strip, is my "drop in pocket" gun most of the time.

    Squawker,
    Thank you. What type of pants do you wear most that will fit the G26? I would think it just a bit bulky? What pocket holster?
    Thanks,

    Well you could go with a Kahr PM9 that's smaller than your 26 and you'll be able to stick with a 9mm. I pocket carry a PM9 90% of the time. Also, I just picked up a Seecamp .380 which is a great pocket carry gun. They're pricey and hard to find though. I waited 18 months for mine. I think if you can't go as small as a Seecamp and are looking at a LCP or LCR, you might as well get the PM9. It's basically the same size. Yeah, it's more money than the LCP and LCR but it's not as pricey and hard to find as the Seecamp and you get a solid pocket carry 9mm.

    +1 on the PM9. I use mine as pocket carry gun. It is perfectly sized for the role.

    A S&W 642 is my "go to" pocket gun... Don't really like anything smaller...

    Another vote for the LCP. Good luck finding ammo for it though. Mine likes Golden Sabers, Gold Dots, and SXT's. Not my first choice of caliber for CC but a lot better than no gun when I can't carry my Glock 23 or 642...
