    Seems kind of ridiculous to include new, unproven pistols in that list and NOT include the tried & true G26.

    I am going to guess that some company did not buy a full page advertisement in the latest issue.

    You have to have REALLY big pockets for the G26 to be a pocket pistol. Looks like all the pistols in the article are small single stacks, just as it should be.

    I do not really consider the G26 a pocket pistol either. I could carry it in my cargo shorts but it is pretty blocky and not very comfortable.

    These aticles are generally just a marketting pitch and usually have little reliability. They push the new to get the word out.

    Exactly. Like having a brick in your front pocket. I carry my 27 IWB or ankle only.

    When you look at the size of these pistol, I can see why they left out the 26.I think that the 26 is a better choice, but in a IWB holster.

    Seeing the G26 is the smallest gun I want to own (which I have). It is a gun I easily pocket carry and I'm not that big 5'8" 175#. So when people say its hard to pocket carry I just don't know what to say?

    I'm a much bigger guy than you and I don't like pocket carrying my Glock 26. It conceals fine in my front pocket (I did it for a month or so before deciding it wasn't for me) but the weight of it causes my pocket to sink down when I was sitting and jostle excessively when I was walking quickly/jogging/etc. And while I don't even notice my LCP when pocket carrying, or my G26 while IWB, I sure don't forget it's there ever when pocket carrying.

    It works, but it doesn't work well... for me.

    Hey, I can pocket carry my 26 in my back pocket and forget it is even there. I cut down an Uncle Mikes belt holster did a little sewing and it is very comfortable. I can draw the 26 very easily and it will not slip out. I have had many of the concealed pocket pistols and none of them can compare to the reliability or accuracy of my 26 and that is with the stock magazine grip. I have tried the extended grips and find the flat stock plate more than adequate. So to say the 26 is not a pocket gun is ludricous. Mine is easily concealed by any shirt.

    I can carry my G26 in the front pocket of my Dockers with no problem. Now, it's not light like a Ruger LCR......but hey, it carries 10+1 of +p9mm. I haven't shot all of the single stack pocket 9's, but to me the Glock is much more shootable. I rented a Kel-Tec PF9 at my local range last year and WOW, was that painful. Hardly got through a box of ammunition. I routinely shoot two boxes through the 26 with no problem (and no pain). I'm with others here....the G26 is just about as small as I would go for a carry pistol.

    The 26 is a great small gun that can be carried in the pocket.

    A great pocket pistol, however, it is not.

    A single stack 9 and 40 from Glock would sale great I bet. So many new single stacks on the market lately...
