    A bit more info? There are tons of pistols out there that are pocket carry compatible, depending on the size and style of your pockets.

    I'm looking for exactly the same thing. The problem is that I'm stubborn and I only want .45 ACP (although I might consider a .357 SIG).

    So what kind of caliber and/or capacity are you after?

    The Walther PPS is something you should have a look at before you by an ordinary "pocket gun" It is semi-auto, 6,7, or 8 round magazines available.

    It is very slim in width, under 1 inch, It is available in 9mm or .40.

    POCKET???

    Well any one of the new mini .380ACP pistols should work just fine. Watch the forums for comments and watch magazine adds, etc. Whatever you pick should work just fine for you.

    My thoughts exactly, as it is what I carry around the house and as a backup when I go out.

    Or, you could get a Rohrbaugh 9mm for 3+ times the price.

    I pocket carry a G26 without any problems. I also carry a 642 or a CW9, but the G26 is becoming my favorite.

    You must have "Deep Pockets" I think it's great you carry a 26, Great gun. I think though the average person would find the 26 and similar size guns uncomfortable for every day pocket carry. I had a Colt Mustang Pocketlite and though it was close, and for years the premium "Pocket" gun, it was still just a little too large for the pocket. The new mini 380's fit the bill much better.

    A S&W J Frame works well in a front pocket.

    Another vote for the LCP in a good pocket Holster. Very easily carried all day long, and there when ya need it to be.

    What he said. That's my pocket setup; I have the Ruger pinky extensions and Bright Sites orange paint on the front sight bump. I'm getting either a Hogue Handall Jr or AGrip grip material for it next. It happily eats WWB, Magtech, and AE range ammo and is loaded with Remington Golden Saber JHPs for carry.

    I tried that and found it lumpy and uncomfortable in my kahkis and jeans. It's OK in looser pants with bigger pockets, but didn't really work for me.

    My vote is for the Kel-Tec P3AT with the Crimson Trace Laser in a Desantis Superfly sticky holster!

    I recently started carrying a Smith and Wesson 340 in a Desantis Pocket Holster, I also stole a Galco Summer Special in Black IWB for it which is also a great option. The availablity of a 38 or 357 in a small lightweight pocket package is the uitmate "no gun" gun.
