Good pocket carry/conceal carry pistols?

Greetings /k/, I am currently looking into buying a pistol to conceal carry. I want something small enough to throw in my pocket when out and about/not have it be a major hindrance to carry daily. I've been thinking about buying a S&W 642 Airweight but I am still on the fence about it due to its low capacity. Any recommendations are appreciated.

          I carry a Ruger LCP Max in a Desantis pocket holster. Inside breast pocket on one jacket, outside breast pocket on a winter one. Sometimes in a thick pullover hoodie pocket. It just works for me.
          Haven't carried in warmer weather yet, but I'm trying to find an IWB that works. Slim + slim fit work pants = ludicrously tight pants pockets.
          Will probably stick with the LCP Max, but I've been wanting to carry the LCR or a S&W shrouded hammer j-frame.

          What's dogshit about it? The trigger? The weight?
          The .38+P version is a tad snappy but manageable, more than reliable as a backup. The 327 version is nice for one extra round, but I'll admit that 32 H&R is a much more palatable round than 327 for that frame.

          imho its just a shit gun
          had one before, ended up absolutely hating it
          it's only use is as a gun you hand someone to never use, i.e., gift for wifey / grandma so they don't get murderraped (even though they'll still leave it at home because it takes up space in their purse)
          i ended up ccing a full sized glock 20 over it instead

              same reason that guns like the usfa zip .22 & cobray terminator are shit, because they just are
              i don't feel like explaining in detail why i hate it, its basically just every detail about the gun in it's own way
              i just don't like the gun, i've been slowly erasing it from my memory aside from me not liking it, i try not to hold onto things i don't like, no point in obsessing over something meticulously if its garbage
              not much else to tell you besides that

    I bought a standard manufacturing switch gun 22 mag for bike rides. During the week I wear cargo shorts for work and have a hellcat in a crossbreed cargo pocket holster

    smaller than J-frames and 6+1 capacity.

      also, IMO j-frames being something you can stick in any pocket is kind of a meme, unless all of your clothes have really big pockets. They're really not as small as a lot of people make it out to be.
      hence, why for pocket guns I recommend automatics over revolvers, unless you're just gonna go down to an NAA or something.

        another benefit is that .380 is about the same price as 9mm whereas .38 is quite a bit more.

        They're the same size on the specs sheet, but revolvers carry easier in the pocket in my experience. They don't have so much of a gun-shaped print, and they tend to stay vertical without a holster while a semi auto will shift around from the weight of the ammo in the grip. Here's a picture of a Shield with the 7-round magazine in my pocket.

          Compare that to this LCR with lasermax laser. Both print, but the Shield looks more like a gun-shaped print to me.

            Not having the chunky slide going the whole length of the firearm is a bonus for revolvers. Also, even though cylinder is fat, the rest of the barrel and frame is extremely thin at .64 inches on this LCR.

    If you want something for pocket carry then the Bodyguard 380, LCP II, LCP Max or P-32 are your best options.
    Even the microcompacts like the P365 or Hellcat are too big for a fast draw from a lot of pockets.

    S&W 642 with a t-grip adapter and wooden side panel grips was my sweet spot

    revolvers are nice because you don't have to constantly chamber/unchamber the same round every time you go out

      Why are you doing that to begin with?

        Not that guy, but I do it so I can keep up with my daily dry fire practice routine. Revolvers are nice for that because you don't have to worry about bullet setback from loading and unloading the same cartridges a hundred times.

        Why would you do that?

        because I don't like keeping firearms with loaded chambers lying around the house

    If you'd like a revolver and want to stick with .38 while getting an extra round there's the Taurus 856. Pretty similar size, but if you want to have a shrouded hammer like the 642, you have to accept a few extra ounces of weight, but if you're okay with an exposed hammer you can get an ultra lite model that's pretty close in weight to a 642 while still having an extra round. Why they don't offer the ultra lite model with a shrouded hammer is a bit of a head scratcher to me.

    Not everyone's favorite but I like it for a small double stack 380. 12 round mags available as well.
    Revolvers are cool too. Plenty of auto and revolver options

      As long as it's reliable that looks like a really hard gun to beat for summer carry.
