I feel very comfortable with my .38 and .357 snubbies, because they are the weapons I train with the most. They fire pretty decent ammo, they only drawback is capacity.

I feel ammo capacity is a very relative thing, I spend most of the working day in a very safe building with good security, where I'm unlikely to need a gun at all (but we all know sh*t still happens, so it's better to be prepared). So five .357 shots are enough for me. At my house, since home invasions here are usually carried out by more than one person, I keep a Para 14-45 at hand.

I pocket carry a Kel Tec PF9(9mm) in a desantis superfly pocket holster in the summer when wearing shorts/ t-shirt. It works well for me.
Again, loss of available ammo with a single stack magazine, but the way I see it, its better to leave the house with that set up and be comfortable then leave without a weapon.

My carry pistol is a un-issued CZ 82 mil-surp. It's hard to conceal depending on what I'm wearing. But I've carried it in my right front pocket the most.

Of course depending on the season it carrys fine under a jacket better.

Yeah, I hate to admit it but due to the "love handle" syndrome - I pocket carry most of the time.

DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster and my "pocket rocket".

The CZ-82 is a bit large (and heavy) for me to pocket carry. But I find this rig works pretty well for me IWB.

Hey Highpower, what brand holster is that? I'm looking for a leather IWB holster for my Ruger LCR, and that thing is nice.

Default Pocket Carry a Kel-Tec P3AT

I pretty much always have my Kel-Tec P3AT in my pocket in a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster. My other carry gun is a Makarov IJ70-18A, and I carry it iwb. I prefer the Kel-Tec for the much smaller weight, while still having a decent defensive round.

I carry a Ruger LCP in the pocket most of the time. I've only had a CCW for 6 months or so, but really like the COMPLETE concealabliliy of an in the pocket carry.
