I love my LCP iwb at 4 o'clock. I can easily wear gym shorts and a tshirt and I hardly even know it's there. I've tried front pocket carry around the house, all be it w/o a pocket holster, and just don't like it much. Do y'all carry front or back pocket? I probably wouldn't much like sitting on my gun either. I do like the advantage of being able to have hand on weapon and not drawing attention.

Sig 938 (9mm) and Smith S&W 637 (38 +P)

They work pretty good. At least as good as I ask them to be anyway....

I have two pocket pistols. A S&W Snub nose 38, and a Kahr pm9. The Kahr travels with me constantly because the S&W is heavy and I can't hit anything more than 5 feet away with it. The PM9 is very accurate even from 50 feet!

I've been carrying my NAA loaded with Federal Hydra-Shok HP.32's for a dozen years. It's SS so has a little weight, but it's always functioned perfectly and center fire ammo is way more dependable than rim fire. When I retired back in the 80's I picked up the Beretta mod21 .22. I carried it for a number of years in total comfort. The only problem was that on a number of occasions while shooting it the gun FTF. It was very finicky where ammo was concerned except when using Federal high velocity, but I just felt I couldn't depend on it for SD. Also it had no extractor and when it didn't fire there was no second chance. The NAA makes a fine gun. My brother carries the same one as well and is also happy with it.

I guess some folks have deeper pockets than others (pun intended)..For pocket, small and light have to be a primary consideration along with some stopping capability (otherwise we'd carry a single shot 22). The LCP seems to fit the bill-reasonable cost, caliber, light and small. Just sliding it into a foam coolie cup holder makes it a comfortable pocket carry with no visible lines.

S&W Model 60 .357 in a Desantis Nemesis holster or an LC9 in the same Desantis style.

The stainless S&W when it's hot and the Ruger when it's cooler.
