Yup, I carry it in my right-rear pocket sometimes in a "wallet" style holster. Other times I slide it in my britches in a compact IWB clip-on holster. It takes a bit of practice to draw from a pocket holster but the latest models do a good job of staying in your pocket when the gun is drawn...

That said, I don't think I would be trying to alter chambers and stuff like that.
My concern would be pressures. My Hodgdon manual shows .380 at a max pressure of 16,100 CUP. But the 9mm goes up to 32,500 CUP. I would not want to be the guy trying to shoot a cartridge that produces twice the pressure a gun was designed for. I do like all of my fingers though. Maybe that's just me?

I carried mine with Buffalo Bore 95gr hardcast. 300#ft of whoop ass in that little bullet.

Tucked the barrel into my watch pocket, and tucked the rest behind my belt.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
