Default Looking for a Pocket carry Pistol??

It's summer here in Florida and I live in shorts and t-shirts. I currently have a M&P shield 40 cal with IWB holster but in shorts this is a little uncomfortable. I'm thinking about getting a pocket pistol, what are my options? Do I have to go with .380?

No you're definitely not stuck with a 380. Kahr makes some very good pocket pistols in 9,40&45.Ruger also makes the lc9.Beretta makes one called the nano.I'm sure just about every manufacturer out there has at least one pocket pistol larger than 380..

Here is a pretty good comparison of pocket carries.

Default Pocket carry

This is my spring/summer/wearing shorts weather carry;

The Radom P64... You can usually find one for around $200-$300 if you look around.

It is. The Sig Sauer P938 is a miniature 1911 9mm.

I have or had for pocket carry a Taurus 380 tcp when minimal is needed, daily pocket pistol is a kahr cm9 and had a pf-9. Maybe the latest db9 or one of the other micro 380's out there too. All depend on your pockets.

I have a Bodyguard 380 that I carry sometimes when I wear shorts. I carry it in a IWB holster that I made. Not a big pocket carry fan. It just prints in my pocket more then I would like
