I chose the S&W bodyguard for pocket carry. If chosing today I'd look hard at the LCP2. Most of my friends and relatives own and carry an LCP. I went with the bodyguard because it was a tad bigger with better sights. I routinely shoot others' LCPs better than I do my own S&W. I was leary of striker fire and the lack of restrike capability. I'm over it.

The LCP2 looks to be a bit larger and easier to handle than the original. Reputedly has better sights and a better trigger. I wanna try one.

One possibility... There are pants made for concealed carry. Made with pockets that can be contoured for larger pistols. net search shows some potential.

The khakis I wear are very good for CCW (Mountain Khakis).

Another vote for the Glock 43. Back in the day, a steel J frame weighed more, and I’ve carried them a bunch. The G43 is on the large size for pocket application but fits OK in Levi’s jeans with an untucked Polo. I had a Sig P938, which was a tiny bit smaller dimensionally, but within about an ounce difference in terms of weight. The G43 will take a lot more abuse, and I have used it in IDPA matches in BUG division. It shoots like a full size although split times, obviously, aren’t as good. The G43 and a couple of mags is what I take when I have to fly to a big “gun unfriendly” city and can only take one. I take a pocket holster and an IWB holster.

Can’t speak the mini-Kahrs. No experience with them.

If I really need to get skinny I can put my G23 nekkid on my right hip with no holster under a snug belt. With a T undershirt to keep it off my skin and a square tailed short sleeve shirt it covers sufficiently for me. There are still times when I carry something smaller than the Glock but not many. Not a fan of pocket carry, but that's just me and Mae West.

I would not be carrying a glock without a holster especially if you have one in the chamber.

After having a catastrophic failure a week ago with my G-23 breaking the slide lock spring and the slide falling off the gun, my belief of having a back up gun is important.

I would never recommend anyone carry a Glock hot without a holster. For my own purposes it works. But if no round is chambered it doesn't matter where you put it or what it's in from a safety standpoint.

By my standards the categories do not overlap.

Thinking the Kimber Micro 9 or SIG 938 might be the closest. Any other suggestions?

I believe that "comforting" starts at 9mm, so I'm not aware of a pistol that meets these requirements unless your jeans are mighty loose in the leg. If that's the case, then I'd go with a G43 as a bare minimum, and a G26 for the bigger magazine if I could get away with it.

Also, anything small enough to work in a pocket will work for OWB or IWB carry. But those methods are generally best for bigger guns.

I've got two that fit that criteria and use daily. My Glock 43 9mm and my Springfield XDS in 45acp. I can shoot both of them well and they are both Uber reliable

the closest to a one gun solution is the G43, but like many I don't carry glocks in my pocket without a holster and then its too big for my pocket anyway. A guy I know who wears dress shirts has some holster that tucks into the front of his pants, the gun hangs below the belt and all you see is a metal clip, don't know the model.

Glock 43. +2 mag extension when IWB / OWB and a +1 mag extension or flat factory mag in a desantis nemisis for pocket. The longer I have my G43 the more I continue to like it and carry it. I am very very pleased with how well it shoots too.

Another vote for the Rohrbaugh R9. Nothing else that small in a 9mm. I find the G43 and S&W Shield just a little too big for comfortable pocket carry in many pockets. Of course, no reason to stick to the Rohrbaugh once you move to another form of carry but it still works if you only have one pistol.
