If you HAVE to pocket carry..... A small revolver is a better choice than a semi auto.
I really love how people are so absolute in their statements.
While this may be true FOR YOU, it is not true for everyone. I disagree with several of your other points as well.
The simple fact is that in order to conceal in the best manner possible, some people must turn to pocket carry. And for a lot of those people, a small semi is a much better choice than a small revolver.
