    Not sure that gun will fit well in a pocket...but I really like my Desantis Nemesis for both Kahr CW9 and Ruger LCP.

    I have first hand experience in this....*sort of....*

    On my own property, I pocket carried a Taurus PT145 in a High Noon Pocket Grabber for about a year (I just sold it because I no longer have that gun).

    This was with fairly loose fitting cargo pants, but I don't think jeans would have worked very well.

    Concealment? Forget it! It printed like crazy, but it didn't matter in my case as long as my sons didn't question me about it.

    I'm thinking that the .40 Compact is similar in size.

    I have recently started pocket carrying on weekends in cargo shorts. Both in the lower cargo pocket (a little to much jiggling) and in the regular pocket. Very comfortable. Currently use a comptac Infidel but it is not ideal.

    I PC a G27 in one of these. Pocket Concealment Systems, Inc.: Pocket Holsters

    I use the Harpoon in mostly cargo pants/shorts.

    Well, if you DO decide to pocket carry, try this... Pocket Holster w/thumb push

    Check out my review of the Mika Pocket Holster for my Glock 26:

    Mika Pocket Holster Tactical Texan

    The G26 is very similar to the M&P, so it will give you something to go by. Personally I think the G26 is too big for pocket carry, and will probably switch back to the J-Frame as a BUG as soon as I can get the spousal unit to start carrying her own gun.

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I like the idea of the thumb push for release. Using the comptac Infidel (with the clip taken off) that is how I release it. I think a redesign of the infidel would make a great pocket holster. I wrote to them but the never replied.

    I pocket my Walther P99c sometimes which is very similar in size. I've found that one of those cheap nylon "holsters" with the metal clip removed actually works pretty well. I wear Wrangler cargos most of the time from Wally and they actually hide the gun very well. I use the flat mag base to shorten the grip as much as possible. Deep pockets with a wide opening are a must with a gun of this size.

    I carry the exact same gun. I use a belly band. It has been the best by far.

    I never liked the weight of the guns constantly hanging on my belt. I place the belly band down low over the top of my underwear. I don't feel it at all and the gun is supported independently without constantly pulling my pants down.

    I also use pants with an expandable waist band as the gun and belly band sit inside the belt. Very comfortable to wear.

    I pocket carry a Walther PPS, there is a bulge in the pocket when I sit down with dress pants/khakis/chinos but I've never had anyone ask about it, people think it's a PDA or something

    pocket carrying the PPS with cargo shorts works extremely well though...
