    What do you guys think is the best "pocket" gun out there right now? Something that's easy to conceal in light clothing and comfortable to carry, is in a decent enough caliber, and is pretty shootable (manageable recoil, easy to shoot accurately at typical self defense ranges).

    I'm a fan of the Springfield Armory XDs in 9mm, though it's a little on the large size for a "pocket" gun. It's super thin though.

    When you said "deep concealment" I was thinking more along the lines of the NAA mini-revolvers.

    For pocket guns, I like the Ruger LCP.
    Or the Beretta 950 in .25 acp.

    Personally I like the P938 and P365 for pocket carry. To me 9mm is the perfect compromise between size, weight, capacity and power.

    Mine is the P365 for both size/ease of concealment and capacity. If caliber isn't an issue, the wife's Glock 42 is even easier.

    The M&P 9mm Shield I currently have (up for sale soon), is only 3/4" thick and with a three inch barrel makes it an excellent pocket gun.

    I carry a Glock 42 in my pocket every day. May not be the best pocket handgun, but it works for me. Carries like a smaller handgun but shoots like a larger handgun.

    That LCP II is tempting. At 10.6 oz, that thing is LIGHT. How's it shoot? Is it pretty snappy?
