I'm wanting a new carry gun and thinking small and light, no frills, just point and shoot.

Currently carry a S & W 638 but want to go smaller. The wheel gun is actually pretty big.

Thinking of either the Ruger lcp or the Keltec in .380. I'd even consider a .22 long rifle or .22 mag.

Just want something small and concealable. My shirts, even tshirts are always tucked in, and I hardly wear a coat even in winter. Just thinking the small gun would fit in the back pocket. I wear cowboy cut wranglers so the pockets are a bit tight.

I haven't bought one yet, but the next gun I buy will be the lcp.
I am usually dressed like you, and carrying a gun anywhere besides the pocket can be difficult.
I think it is the most practical option for pocket carry. With a small caliber pistol, you might need more than one or two shots, so the little derringers are out for me, and I think the lcp is just as concealable as the little .22 mag revolvers, so I'm going to opt for the .380.

I was going to say s&w 642 airweight but since no revolvers I'd go the lcp route.

I've been carrying the Ruger LCP for two years and I love it.

Anything and everything you ever wanted to know about the LCP can be found here.

I pocket carry a Ruger LC9 in a DeSantis pocket holster. LCP would be a good choice for pocket carry also.

Looked at the lc9, sig p238 and the Taurus tcp today. The sig was nice but little expensive. The tcp had a better feel than the lcp. The lc9 is slightly larger, but its ok because I already have 9mm in the safe and they are cheaper than .380. Hmmmmmmm

Check out the Diamondback .380. They are small but sort of glock like in build. When I was buying one last year I got down to between the DB and the LCP. Went with the Diamondback just because of the glock like feel.

i carry a ruger lcr with ct laser grips daily in a pocket holster and my wife carrys a kel tec 380, both carry nice but i wear loose fit jeans and the 380 is awesome for being a bit lighter and thinner, but usually orients itself in weird ways where as the lcr tends to stay put. generally i carry my lcr unless im wearing tighter jeans and then i take the 380. also i keep the first 2 or 3 shells snake shot in the lcr as i work outside and it does a dandy job critters at close range and always goes bang! what little ive shot the keltec i really like it also and its been reliable, my father in law carrys a lcp and my mother in law a taurus tcp so ive been around a few pocket guns, they all do a dandy job but if i was you id pick a ruger or kel tec
