Same for the KelTec P32. I have one of the originals, first generation, purchased about March of 2000, and I can't remember the last time it jammed or failed to fire. This includes not having a full take down cleaning, eating several boxes of hot/mild/HP/hardball ammo, and being carried hundreds of hours in all types of weather and temps. in a leather pocket holster. It got it's first full field strip a few months ago actually, and was for the most part clean and crud free overall.
Like the Seecamp, it is just about the best thing going in an 'always gun' that you are almost always able to carry and conceal.

Though it might be a little large, a Glock G36 may fit the bill as far as what you are looking for. It's Glocks smallest .45. Single stack mag and not too much larger than a G26 or G27.

I've had a Gen3 G36 for a few years and really like it.

Another vote for the Kahr PM9. Pocket carrying it today in fact in the Kahr pocket holster. Like others, I got it prior to the CM9's release, but this little gunhas been 100% for me.

The only (and I mean only) thing that I'm less than thrilled about, is the loooong reset on its DAO trigger. But that's just a slight, slight nitpick on an otherwise stellar gun.

I've got a S&W 340 that I like a lot. With 357's just the muzzle blast will drop someone at close range

Does Glock make a .45 ACP or .45 GAP pocket pistol?

Not all pockets are created equal I carried this 60 in rough-out leather, homemade pocket square in RF, RR and R jacket uniform pockets;


Carry Issues

This revolver was shipped by S&W directly to my dealer in 1969 for me in response to a thoughtful letter I'd sent a Sr Manager. I had the hammer bobbed. It has gone a lot of interesting places with me in the last 43 years.

Best.

Taurus PT-709 is what I carry and usually in my MTAC IWB holster. It fits well in most coat pockets too. This is my spring/summer firearm. For winter its a G23. I take in consideration if I were to have to use either that I want to penetrate through clothing for those cold winter months.

That's my pocket rocket. I've equiped it with CT LG305 and
the extra length helps tame the recoil. I carry Hornady .357
mag Critical Defense ammo in it with 2 Bianchi Speed Strips
in my other pocket. And you're right about the muzzle
blast. But with practice and the use of a Laser, even
at night, quick follow up shots are not all that hard.

I'd get a G36. Seven rounds of .45 ACP stopping power.

One of the great things about the 340 is that I'd really have to feel like my life is in danger to actually pull the trigger when it is loaded with full power loads. 5 shots and my hand is bruised for a week. I carry it with 135 grain GoldDots.

OUCH - a mere five shots of 135gr loads bruises your hand?

I never thought of stopping power. I think more in the line of wound channel or central nervous sytem. Bleed out or completely fall out.

I just got my Springfield Armory XDs this week and have been carrying it in the front pocket of jeans, shorts, slacks and even hospital scrubs and am very happy with it. Easy to draw, very thin, no printing with cheapo pocket holster.

I have had many other handguns of various styles and calibers, but always hated not having .45 like all my other handguns.

Range trip went very well also. Very reliable, couple of FTE, but pretty sure that is due to learning curve with new firearm and break in period.

You should check em out.

+1 on the kahr cm9. Each time I shoot it I like it more. Tight groups for a tiny gun and trustworthy reliability. i usually smart carry it but pocketable. also shot the xdm and was surprised holes were touching at ten yards and low recoil for its size

Another vote for an Airweight S&W.

I've also looked at the CM9 and Beretta Nano but no experience with them.

I have an LCP which I don't like and never carry.

I have a PM9 and have pretty large hands so I"m nowhere near as accurate with it as I am with my Kimber Ultra TLE but I have added a crimson trace trigger laser to the Kahr and it's made it much more doable. It pocket carry's just fine with just a good belt and coming from me who has a minimal ass to hold up his pants it's saying something

I'll throw in my vote for the Kahr CM9/CM40. No reason at all to pay more for the PM series. Good capacity, good firepower for a pocket gun, quick reloads, and light weight. I used to carry a J-frame S&W, first a 38 then a 357, but they're bigger than the CM series, hold less ammo and reload much, much slower.

I did the LCP thing for a while, and it wins in terms of sheer size, but I'm not much on the 380 ACP. While I prefer the 38 Special over the 380 ACP, the 9mm and .40 in a pocket sized gun simply offer more. Recoil in the CM9 is easy as cake, and the .40 is more, but not punishing. The CM9/CM40 conceal better than a J-frame revolver too. Extra mags ride effortlessly in the opposite pocket, and reloads are very fast.

I only have the CM40 now, and have not problems hitting 25yd poppers with it, it's very very accurate and packs a big punch, and punches a big hole The new XDs is interesting, though it's heavier and larger than the Karh CM series, and more expensive.
