I have a PF9. I consider it my "Get off of me" gun. 7+1 9mm in a rather small package. No safety other than that loooong trigger pull. I don't get anything resembling decent groups out of it at 7 yards, but it WILL get the job done if it's needed in a pinch. It's also painful to shoot more than 50 rounds during a range session, even spaced out with other guns. I'll keep it but it's certainly not my EDC.

yeah thats the only thing thats getting me. i shot the p11 an pf9 an the trigger is what turns me off of them. my cuzin has his ccw an loves his pf9 for a pocket. an like u said for that close shot it really dont matter how long the trigger is just as the bang goes off lol

I have a Glock 26 ordered up to fill that role.

Am hoping that the "new" XDm will be falling into this catagory. We shall see.

I pocket carry my Sig P238 nitron with siglite night sites. I finally found the extended mag that gives me 7+1 and fits the hand great. It has a single action trigger with about a 7lb pull. I carry it cocked and locked in a high noon pocket holster. Some people have problems with carrying cocked and locked in a pocket but with the firm snap of the sig's safety I have no problem with it.

Great little gun though I did have to send it back to Sig when I first got it due to failures to feed/eject and problems with the slide release locking the slide open. I sent a detailed letter to Sig when I sent the gun back and they adressed every problem on my list and had it back to me in two weeks. Shoots great now and I carry it with Hornady Critical Defense. I know it is only a 380 but it is better than a sharp stick...

I'm very satisfied with my Ruger LCP. Had it about a year now... got it out the door for about $300. Very slim & compact, very light, fits any pocket... jeans, shorts, khakis. Always goes bang.

^^^^^What he said. I have really grown to love the lcp, a true pocket pistol. Some of the pistols that get lumped in the "pocket pistol" category require much more substantial pockets. The lcp works in every pair of jeans, slacks, and shorts that I have also.

LCP...
Pretty sure the OP stated POCKET PISTOL..
The Kel-Tec isn't that bad, just not as pretty..

You guys carrying G26s in your pocket must have some pretty big pockets...:roll:
Nothing better than a 26.10 oz gun flopping around in a cargo pocket or pulling your pants down in a jeans pocket.:shock:

The LPC w/CTC weighs in at 10 oz.
I carry mine in a High Noon Pocket Grabber with a spare mag in my weak side pocket.

LCP with CTC in any type of pocket, IWB, wallet holster is what I go with. I can't imagine anything else being easier than this combo.

LCP for any pocket carry.
P238 for back or cargo pocket. Just doesn't conceal as well as the LCP in my front pockets.
As much as I love shooting the Sig and having real sights, the slightly lighter weight and slightly shorter dimensions of the LCP makes it easier to pocket carry in general, IMO.

I agree on the G26 requiring huge pockets, or your cargo pocket would swing like a pendulum. My XD40sc is the same size as the G27 I had before. Neither of these are pocket pistols. The only pocket I'd carry them in is a coat pocket, but thats not going to help in the summer.

P3AT in a wallet holster. Works well and is comfy back there.
