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.
