Don't laugh, but a S&W ladysmith .38 is a great size for a pocket holster and a great gun for self defense

I could think of quite a few. Revolver or semi-auto?

I like both of those, but they don't usually meet pocket gun qualification.

I would go for either Ruger LCR (.357 if you can find one now), S&W J frame shrouded hammer, or Ruger LC9.

I am definitely intrigued by the SA Single Stack XD 45 that will be out soon.

Beretta Tomcat in .32. Solid, high quality piece. Perfect for pocket (in appropriate pocket holster). Plenty of hot load .32 HP Ballistic Tip ammo available.

I carry it when clothing, like shorts and t-shirt, don't permit appropriate cover for IWB Glock 26.

Kahr cm9 fits in your pocket and while not perfect a far better trigger than a LC9. If you want to upgrade PM9 or MK9 are also great guns. I have a CM9 that has functioned flawlessly through 500+ rounds. It was under $400 out the door. Always do your own research. Maybe go shoot a few. I bought a Cm9 because I prefer the trigger to the lc9 or the pf9, and the pm9 did not seen worth the extra couple hundred.

I have s Sig Sauer P238 as a pocket pistol or for something just a bit bigger I also have a Ruger LC9. I'd recommend either of these.
