Reaper 61 Drag your self to some gun shops and see what fits your pockets. Don't think that one brand is bad or good. I shoot a brand that someoney say or no reliable yet with 3 of them and many thousnads of rounds later ?? NO problems. Most problems come from the ammo used or the owners skills or lack of more times than not.

If the sig p290rs is out of your price range, then get a sw bodygaurd 380. Small reliable, double action only, lock back after last round, safety if you want to use it but not necessary bc of dao, built in laser if that's your thing, lifetime warranty. Shoots great with low recoil. You can get one for about $400 give or take

Pockets are lousy holsters, regardless of the gun you place in them.

I've been doing as much research as I can. Not a whole lot of selection here at fort Polk and I don't really know anyone here. Seems to me the Ruger lc9 or S&W shield would fit the bill. I get that some people don't dig pocket carry but I just spent three years in Alaska and this is my first summer this far south and its so hot and humid that its the only sensible way too carry.

My sister just bought an M&P Shield in 9mm. I don't love the trigger but its super reliable.

I have a pair of Kel Tecs for pocket carry, a P-11 and a P-3AT. Both guns were a PITA to get running right. The P-11 I got running right myself. The P-3AT went back and forth to Kel Tec before it was running right. One thing I can say is any pocket pistol you buy might have problems. All pocket pistols come back to the manufacturer more often than their larger models. That said use a credit card to purchase a new pocket pistol. If it doesn't run right you have an advocate in your buyer protection. Kel Tec was just trying to wear me down on the P-3AT. Once my credit card company got involved Kel Tec fixed my gun and got it back to me in 2 weeks.

Look into the diamondback db9. And the Taurus 709 slim. Good little guns. I have a kel tec pf9 also and find that it is too picky about what ammo it eats. Happy searching!

I was going to suggest the DB9 also , its smaller than the LC9 by quite a bit , however its a DOA trigger with no safety SO if your going to pocket carry I suggest a sleeve to put it in, If that doesnt bother you then so be it , its a great gun , I have one it has roughly 200 rds thru it without any issues , great trigger for such a small gun and very accurate which I will attribute that to such a smooth trigger . .
Here is the LC9 and DB9 side by side

Have the LC9 and even though its slim and has great safety features. IMO, it's not for pocket carry. IWB, it's great! If you really only want to pocket carry, maybe consider the smaller LCP? Good luck, in finding what suits you!
