    I'd be interested in the answer as well, only for a P3AT... :)

    I use a DeSantis Nemesis for my P3AT and it is perfect in every way. Also only costs about $20.

    you're gonna need HUGE pockets and the access may be a bit crowded. have you considered smart carry or IWB?

    My thoughts would be:
    1) Mika pocket Holster
    2) Nemesis
    3) MNBURL makes pocket holsters

    Big Pockets is right!!

    I was just traveling on vacation and just held an M & P compact for the first time. What ranger and plblark wrote is correct, the pockets would have to be really big and I think you would have a difficult time keeping the pistol from printing. It is a compact pistol as opposed to full size but by no means would I consider it a "pocket" pistol.

    In my experience, the only compact size gun that I've been able to effectively carry in the pocket w/o printing has been the Smith & Wesson J-frame snubnose revolvers. Something about the shape of the revolver lends itself to blending in.

    If you want to pocket carry an auto, you're probably better of with something quite a bit smaller, maybe a kel-tec, bersa, or maybe a small beretta, although the j-frame is usually a little more effective in caliber.

    Mika pocket holster. I carry a Walther P99c, and it does not print, although I usually wear cargo shorts or pants. But, it also works with regular dockers.

    K Rat by PaleHorse & KD Holster's 2in1 are nice for a Keltec P3AT. S&W MP in a pocket? Too large and heavy for pocket carry for me.

    If you have pockets to carry that thing, you may as well slip a grenade in your weak side pocket.....

    Sam Andrews www.andrewsleather.com makes a great pocket holster. I use one routinely to carry my Kimber Ultra Carry II, .45 ACP. The gun carries easily, draws and reholsters very easily and prints like a wallet.
