up close and personal

I'm looking at investing in a pocket sized carry gun. What are you carrying and/or recommend?

I have an LCP for a pocket gun. I like it.

How much do you want to spend?
A Seecamp 380 fits in a pocket http://www.seecamp.com/
A Rohrbaugh R9s is the smallest 9mm http://www.rohrbaughfirearms.com/products

I never worry about cost when it could possibly cost my life.

I have big hands and prefer the LCR. Maybe 1 or 2 less rounds but it doesn't get lost in my hand. It fits in the type of pockets I have because I buy pants and shorts with large pockets.

Take a look at the Micro Desert Eagle. Barely larger than the Seecamp, very accurate.

My deep concealment gun is a beretta 21. Hides very easily and light enough to forget about. I'm looking forward to the Heizer Defense if it proves itself upon release.

I pocket carry a Kahr PM9 almost every day. I love it.

I own a Bodyguard .380 and like it, but 99% of the time it's a J frame snubby .38sp;

It's small enough to carry in a pocket all day, reliable for any imaginable application and fires a good round with a heavy bullet. With any practice, you hit better at extended ranges and reload just as fast as most tiny autos too.
If it's too big, then the .380 goes.

I carry a Kel Tec P3AT when I need a real "pocket" gun. I also sometimes pocket carry a S&W 637 or Walther PPK/S.

I think the springfield XD-S in 45 acp makes a good pocket carry. I know a lot will disagree but hey I tried it and it works great.

My first preference is the Ruger LC9, or S&W 2 inch J frame, both with lasers. Mostly though both are just a little too large for my pockets.

I usually pocket carry the Ruger LCP/Crimson Trace laser.

These all work OK for pocket carry and sometimes I'll just grab one of them.

Beretta 21 (22LR) or Beretta MINX (22 Short).

Micro Desert Eagle.

Kel Tec .380 or 32.

North American 22 Mag revolver.

I am not a big fan of pocket semi-autos. I personally have carried a S&W 442 for many years. It has served as BUG on my ankle, pocket carry, and as a light belt gun.

If I had to pick a semi auto for pocket carry it would be a Sig P238. My dad has one and it has impressed me much more than any other semi auto pocket gun I have shot.

I can't see "pocket carry" as working for me but if it did my XDS would be the way I'd go.

Get a J frame and don't look back. It will be the best choice you've ever made. They're accurate, reliable, reliable, and, did I mention reliable. Five shots, add two 6 round speed strips, you're pack'in 17 rounds in your pocket. If that's not enough ammunition, you're living in the wrong neighborhood.

Good Luck and good shooting.
