You know years back before CC was common We carried steel frame S&W 36 or PPK/S in pockets and didn't think a thing about weight I used a good leather pocket holster and carried every day.
People CC carried S&W 19 snubs on the belts with good holsters. 1911 's also. To day every one wants some lite weight pistol The complains that they have 2 much recoil or that 1 lb is to heavy in the pocket
Get a good Belt and holster and carry a steel frame . You won't really notice the weight and the recoil even with a hot load be a lot less.
Never carry a pistol in your pocket with out a holster or stuck in your pants gangster style. Use proper equipment.
