One person's idea of "pocket carry" size is different than the next. You already established that you want semi-auto.

Best bang for your buck: Ruger LCP & LC9
Also look into various Kahrs and the Sig P238.

I second the CM9 by Kahr. Mine is very nice. It has replaced my J Frame for a daily carry.

Not too popular it seems, but I really like my S&W Bodyguard .380. Trigger pull is the big issue I hear the most about, but the long stiff pull is what I like in a pocket pistol. The laser is just a toy for me, I have no intention of using it in a self defense situation. It's not a target shooting pistol, it's a self defense weapon for 10 yards and less. For me it's accurate and dependable and very concealable. I use a DeSantis "Super Fly" pocket holster for warm weather casual clothes, an IWB holster for suits or ankle holster as a back-up when I open carry my Ruger SR1911 or Glock 23. Oh, and I forgot....my ammunition of choice for it, Hornady Critical Defense. It's not a "take it out of the box and start packing" pistol, you have to take it to the range and get good and comfortable with it first.

What's wrong with the people who make them?

The Bersa Thunder .380 comes to mind. A bit larger than some pocket autos, but very accurate and reliable. Mine has about 500 rounds through it with NO failures of any kind.

I've got really big front pockets, I guess.

S&W 645, 1911A1, and M9A1 all fit just fine,

if you wear a loose, long shirt...

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.
+1 on the Kahr CM9

9pm beats any of pocket gun calibers and you get it in a very small package with a great trigger for a gun this size.

google rev sun moon of korea. the owner if kahr firearms is his son. by buying guns from them you will help fuel there cause. the strangest thing is none of this ever gets on the news and further concludes my theory that government runs news. state runs radio
