All have their place but the Sig P938 is what is carried the most.

Taurus PLY pistols

These two Taurus pistols are my only true pocket handguns,,,
22-PLY and 25-PLY.



Some people think these mouse guns are worthless,,,
But I practice with them enough that I have confidence in their effectiveness.

I just noticed when I looked at the blown up pic of my NAA that the stamping must have been done on Monday or Friday, as it is marked: 22 WAGNUM.

Rick, I equate that to having a box of bullets for a gun I don't have... reason to buy the gun now...

Hello JERRYS.

Quote:

That was the rationale I used for my Charter .44 Special,,,
I had 200 rounds of ammo but no gun for it,,,
It made perfect sense at the time.

Have or have had just most of the the ones made in the last 5-10 years, but the only one that has really stuck around has been my S&W 340PD.

If I had to choose a .380 for pocket carry it would probably be a S&W BG380, 9mm would be a PM9.

NAA 22Mag around the house and yard, Ruger LCP 380 or Kahr PM9 typically when out around town, LCR 357 when out hiking, and NAA Guardian 380, Beretta 950 22short to change things up. The rest are too big for pocket.

Just a couple of smaller ones here,

Kel Tec PF9

Iver Johnson Cadet 55-S in .22 LR

Bond Arms Snake Slayer in .45/.410

I also own a Makarov, but it's a little too large and heavy to be a true pocket gun.

Ruger LCP for times when only the smallest will do.

Kahr CM40 for times when I can get by with carrying something a little bigger with more punch.

Either way a backup mag or two in the opposite pocket.

The wife has the Kahr p380 and my smallest is the XDS.
But I'm not much for pocket carry.

Iver Johnson TP-22 (reliability issues)
AMT Backup II .380 (wanted something lighter)
NAA .22lr (couldn't hit anything with it)
PSP Baby Browning clone (wanted more power)
Ruger LCP (I think this one's a keeper)

I have a few...

I like old .32 ACP - or 7.65 Browning, if preferred - pistols. Here are three now. Actually, the MAB may not count; it was issued as a uniform 'belt gun' by the French National Police from the end of the Second World War until about 1965 (or so).

Couple more...

These three are a Beretta 418 (.25 ACP), a Savage 1907 (.32 ACP) and a Beretta 1935 (.32 ACP). They were all advertised as 'personal' pistols. To be fair, the pockets in a man's suit coat were bigger than currently sized; the Savage might not qualify strictly as a pocket pistol.

S&W Bodyguard .380 in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster with a spare magazine in a Desantis Mag-Packer all loaded with Hornady Critical Defense. Also put a Pachmayr slip-on grip to help fill my hand a little better and it helps a lot.

I plan on getting a set of Big Dot XS Sights for it later on

At my previous job we were allowed to carry duty weapons at most locations and I had my HK USP .45 on my hip or on my thigh but at my new job we aren't allowed to carry any weapons and hiding an HK USP or my Glock 30 is difficult especially in our uniforms so I pocket carry this little setup (on the down-low) so I at least have something if things ever go sideways.

Sig P938

When I first got mine I carried it naked in my pocket for two weeks.

My wife notices if I have one little hair longer than others and if I have gone a day without shaving very early in the second day. BUT, she never noticed I had it in my pocket.

AND, the thing will shoot anything I put in it. Exceptionally accurate for a shorter barreled gun.

The only malfunction I ever had could be attributed to the second magazine insert made and it was probably because I did not fully seat the magazine. New gun, tight tolerances that were there for a fleeting moment.

700-800 rds through it and I trust it.
