If you're going for something concealable, why not up the ante to 9x19? That will expand your possibilities. I've got big hands, and some of those itty bitty pocket pistols are just too short of a trigger pull for me to bother with.
If you're looking for something small but easy to shoot, and you're willing to jump up to 9mm, an XDS is a very good choice.
Edit - Doh, I just realized the OP already has an XDS.
For a truly pocket gun in 380? I'm about to pull the trigger on a Kahr CW380. You may have to put up with a longer break-in, but the end result seems worth it. I tried a used P380 and my LGS's rental LCP. The little Kahr was better in every aspect, in my hands at least. Softer shooting, and more accurate. The LCP also had a FTF where the Kahr was perfect. Same price for both the CW and LCP in Stainless Steel.
For those saying go 9mm; The micro 380s are around 12-13 oz's loaded. A CM9/LC9 is closer to 20-21. A big difference in a pocket of gym shorts. I already have the slim 9 base covered. I also have a 642 for a bit lighter. Bulk and weight reduction are my goals. I want one gun that I don't have to adjust my wardrobe around. The G42 is just too big IMO also.
I just picked up a Kahr CW380.... very good size for a pocket pistol, quite accurate. I only have a few rounds through it, and just like the CW40, it is recommended to put at least 200 rounds through for "break in".... but as soon as I have more range time, I expect it to be problem free just like its big brother.
Highly suggest looking at it... the little CW380 is a great shooter from what I have found so far! (And oh, so easy to conceal!!!)
(JawJuh beat me to it... but had to plug the Kahr again anyway... great gun, especially for under $400!!!!)
