    I guess back pocket carry is not a "thing".

    Don’t want a pick pocket snatching my gun.

    Sitting on a piece of metal doesn’t seem comfortable.

    And there’s a chance of the safety getting swiped to the fire position while sitting on it.

    I pocket carry a lot but only in the front pockets.

    I have a 938. Its nearly the same size but no, it doesn't fit in any pocket comfortably. I dont know how you could draw it properly either. You'd have to carry it cocked and locked, but i wouldn't trust the safety keeping it locked.

    I have the 938 and while I am comfortable with it in the front pocket, not sure about back pocket. Seems uncomfortable to sit on.

    I use a Recluse back pocket wallet holster on occasion for deep conceal, but it's for an LCPII. Not too uncomfortable -- front pocket is more comfortable. I don't know how it would do with the exposed hammer/safety SA of the 238.

    I have both a P238 and P938. I've carried front pocket but not the back. I would not be comfortable carrying condition 1 constantly sitting down on it. I have carried a Kahr CM9 in the back pocket in a Braids wallet holster but didn't like it while sitting in a car seat.

    I have an RM380 which I use when deep concealment is in order. It is a bit smaller than the P238 but not tat much to negate a comparison. I only carry the RM380. It fits nicely in a back pocket, but it is uncomfortable to sit on. Also remember that when you are sitting you cannot draw the gun without getting up. That is basically true for fort pocket carry. However pocket carry is the best means of deep concealment for me so I do it when needed.

    Before I started carrying my P238, I unloaded it then put it holstered in my front pocket for about two weeks. The safety never clicked off, even with kids playing in my lap.

    That said, rear pocket carry is a recipe for lower back problems. Sitting with your hips uneven will eventually put your back out, which is no fun at all.

    I carry my 911 Springfield( practically the same as a 238) in my front pocket with a Kydex holster.

    I sometimes carry mine in my front pocket in a sticky holster. Never tried it in my back pocket. I sometimes carry my 365 in a Braids SOB holster, but never in back pocket.
