My most carried gun is the P938. It just disappears in my front pocket.

When I want something “more”, I go to the P30SK or P320 X-Carry for IWB carry. If I will be wearing a long enough cover garment, I’ll carry full size 1911, P30L, or P226 OWB as the full size guns aren’t comfortable for me to carry IWB.

I hear what some of you are saying about pocket guns. My most concealable gun is my kahr p380. I ALWAYS have it on me but mainly as a back up. I'll carry it by itself at home when there are other guns nearby but going out, I want something more powerful, shootable and preferably more capacity. That's where I've run into the issue with sub compact 9mm pistols. Most are too large for pocket carry but uncomfortable IWB for all the reasons I mentioned in my original post.
I was really itching to pick up the p365 when I heard about it but realize it falls into that too big for pockets too small for iwb range.
Now the p938 is interesting to me. Can anyone do a size comparison between the p380 and a p938?

I agree; never was drawn to pocket carry; Just before my present EDC (P220 Elite DA/SA 10 mm) it was an M11 A-1. The 220 is a bit heavier, but I really don't notice it in a good custom OWB pancake holster. Carry 2 reloads on the weak side.

I don't find it easier to carry a larger gun, but honestly - when I carry my 19, I feel better or more comfortable with my choice than when I carry one of the small 9s.

I must have joined the "older" crowd. I pocket carry my P365, but as for IWB my 228 or G19 are much more comfortable. At 60 with a little more around the middle I think the extra length lets everything settle-in.


Here there is no failure, only varied degrees of success!
