I always find the takes on pocket carry, very interesting. The level of comfort (or in my case, discomfort) that different folks have with some fairly large or bulky seeming pistols, says alot about us as people. Everybody has a different level of what they feel is comfortable and/or utile. In my case much is dependent upon size, both mine and the pistol's. I'm small and wear jeans or dress slacks most days. With the fit of my clothing it is difficult to put anything of any size at all in my pants pockets. That being said I have on rare occasions pocket carried my Bodyguard 380 in the front pocket of some shorts that are pretty much cargo shorts with multiple large pockets. I have carried a few different guns in my jacket pockets, but that is not what the OP is asking so we'll leave that out.

I wish I could more comfortably carry in a pants pocket, but I don't see that happening any time soon - unless I start wearing larger, baggier drawers, which on me always seem of the clown pants variety.

LCP for me!! You can conceal that bug in next to nothing! The lack of an external safety and the heavy trigger makes it ideal for pocket carry? She shoots pretty damn accurate for such a small gun! 380 is not the ideal man stopper but its better than nothing and totally blows away any excuse not to carry!! Glock 26 is my prime carry but I will pocket the LCP in a very casual dress attire!!

Look into CCW Breakaway pants. Look interesting but the price scares me away.

I just watched the video on those breakaway pants. It shows him pointing the gun directly at his own leg or crotch to break the pocket loose. No way am I going there. They can keep them.

I pocket carry several guns depending on numerous variables. Most of the time I carry a Kel Tec P-11. I have a Kel Tec P-3AT I used to carry a lot. I also carry a Charter Mag Pug in my pocket.

Kahr PM9 in DeSantis Nemesis is my daily carry. Then if that prints to much because of small pockets, I have a S&W Bodyguard 380 with DeSantis Nemesis as well. It is very rare that the Kahr doesn't fit.

A 638 in a Nemesis, right front pocket. Doesn't get any simpler.

I have carried a Keltec P32 since before they were available to the general public.

I just started carrying the Ruger LCP in a desantes nemesis holster in my right front pocket for my daily carry. Usually wear dress pants with a tucked in shirt. So far so good. I usually have always carried IWB in the 4:00 position with a sig 938 or kimber ultra covert. The reason was so I could carry throughout my work day. The weight seems to be the biggest issue. Even my sig 938 seems too heavy for my front pocket. So far so good on the LCP.
