Perhaps the new LC9? It's not drastically bigger than the LCP - still small enough to fit easily into a pocket - and 9mm is a healthy step up from .380 in terms of stopping power.

I like my KelTec PF9 for pocket carry. I wish it was a .45 but then it wouldn't fit in my pocket. I used to carry a NAA Guardian .380 but now it's for sale.

Bear, normally, I would say "One = none, Two = one", but I don't think you have to worry about that no matter what your selection is. Just pick the correct ammo for your handgun of choice.

I'd take one in a 9. Yes, I stand up to pee but I just don't like the 40. The biggest draw back I saw was the grip length. It's 0.4" taller then your LCP which will be quite noticable in the pocket.

The LC9 is almost a full inch taller which is disapointing.

If you decide you want to sell your LCP, I call dibs.

The Kahr PM9 is much easier to shoot well than the PM40, yeah - I'd had one of those also. I guess I'm just different as I generally carry a Sig P238 and I don't feel undergunned at all...

I've carried a 9mm and with the right ammo I didn't feel undergunned at all. I would carry one again and would prefer it to a 380 but I have yet to find a 9mm that will work for pocket carry and 380s do. All the 9s I've tried are just a touch too big.
The XD9SC I had was great but it was too thick.

Go with the PM9 weighs about the same and is easier to shoot. I pulled mine out of my pocket to photo it. The Kahr 40's used to have problems with cracked barrels because of pressure problems. Any way here's mine in it's pocket holster. Well I thought so... the attatchment thingy seems to be B.O.

Neil, get the Elsie Ahrrr in 357 and a pocket holster. Nuff said! (The knife cost more than the gun. )

But you can't fit the LCR in your pocket which is the only reason I don't have on in 357.
