That is kind of my thoughts too and I would go one further that the LCP is at the edge of being a pocket gun. Its not "we could go a little bigger and still have a pocket gun".
Exactly. I carried the P365 Pocket carry for a few days when I first got it. It fit. Without a holster, it could fall over and get wedged in the pocket and with a holster it worked ok.

The P365 shined at IWB strong side carry. I can wear a T-shirt, shorts, and flip-flops while carrying concealed comfortably.

The LCP is not a combat pistol. Its is a BACK UP weapon and a Defensive Weapon designed to dominate the immediate threat. It fulfills that design purpose well.

What is the immediate threat as Ruger engineers defined it? Stand up straight, extend one arm out straight, look down at your toes...

Any feet that you see in your peripheral vision and anyone you can touch with your arm is an immediate threat.

The design purpose of the P365 on the otherhand is:

The P365 is designed to be a combat pistol that is concealable. Out of the holster is designed to fill the capability of a full sized duty combat pistol.

These pistols have two very different design philosophies and are not really comparable.
