    What is your pocket carry, and how do you like it? Please do not turn this into a caliber debate; just want to know what works for you. Thanks!!!

    LCP is the easiest but XDS with a little more thought. Really like pocket carry because you can have your hand on he firearm without being obvious.

    I pocket carry the Walther P22, when I am not carrying the Glock 19 Gen 4. Maybe its a little big for the pocket but no one has ever asked me if I was carrying, maybe they suspected....so I guess it conceals well enough. Still like the Glock mag capacity though versus the 10 in the Walther. Caliber discussion excluded.

    S&W 642 38+P or a Kahr CM9. Both work very well.

    S&W Chief's Special. A Model 36 Revolver in .38 Special. Bigger guns go to belt holsters.

    So I'm hearing some votes for the snubbie revolver. Always figured that would be too bulky for let's say, front pocket of jeans or even khakis. Thoughts? I would think a pocket holster would be ideal.

    Up here one usually can be seen wearing a jacket. :D

    You asked what gun for pocket carry. My 442 is the smallest gun I own, and only weighs about 14-15 ounces when emptied.

    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.
