what pocket guns do you have?

I don't mean what gun do you stuff in your pocket, but what gun was meant to be easily carried in a pocket?

to spare us from the endless debate of the 1911 and glock guns being carried in daisy duke blue jeans or junior samples carhart bibs, lets stick with guns no bigger than say a KT P3AT or the Ruger lcp. I know some will say their gun is only slightly bigger, then that will get built on by other only slightly bigger guns until we have a pocket Remington 870 claim..... I think you folks know how this spirals.....

so, in the spirit of this thread lets see these NAA, LWS, Colts, BABY BROWNINGS, LCP, Beretta.....

o.k., I will start it. the after market grips on this gun add to its size needlessly, actually negating the purpose of it being small.

Couple J frames. A 642 and a 637. The 642 does get carried. The 637 is usually in the wife's nightstand.

Had an Inox Tomcat for a bit, but never developed a love for it. Sold it to a friend.

The only gun I have that I can put in a pocket would be my Walther PPK/S .380. I usually carry it in a holster but I did pocket carry it once when I had to go to the store real quick.

A few -

Colt .380 ACP Pocket Hammerless and Vest Pocket .25 ACP. I would not carry the .380 in a pocket but it was considered a "pocket" pistol in the old days:



Kahr P380:



Ruger LCP:



S&W Model 60 with bobbed hammer:



S&W 637-2, also with bobbed hammer, shown in OWB holster but easily fits in front pocket as well:

I dont have a pocket 870, but I do have a pocket MP5



It really only works well with Carhartts and Dickies though, as they have pockets that can easily hold it.

I dont normally pocket carry, as I already have to much junk in most of them. I do use a Smart Carry or neck holster for either my Seecamps or LCP....

357 LCR and a Smith & Wesson Model 36 in 28 spl - regardless of the hammer on the 36, I find it a good carry in my jacket pocket -LCR is nice but I really prefer the J frame

mice hunters welcome but isn't it overkill to shoot them with a .45acp derringer?
