I find nothing wrong with pocket carry. I use this method more than any other for concealed carry.
I first bought a Ruger LCP....it was very small and a nice pistol but I did not like the amount of recoil. I decided to move up to 9mm so I sold it.
Guns just a little bigger and still easily carried in front pocket include the Kel Tec PF9, Kahr PM9 (CM9), and Kimber Solo. I borrowed a friend's Kahr PM9 but I did not care for its looks. I own a PF9 and a Solo and I have had zero malfuntions with either of them. The PF9 is a good deal for the money and the Solo has a sweet trigger. Any of these three are NOT to big for pocket carry.
