If you are looking for a true 9 mm pocket pistol, I suggest you look at the Kahr PM9/CM9. It is half an inch shorter in length and half an inch shorter in height, and an ounce lighter. It also has the option to change the sights to suit you needs.

I carry an LC9S Pro and I am very happy with it. It's very accurate, at 10 yards I get a full mag in a 8 inch circle. The recoil is manageable. You might find one used at a good price or you can go with a new EC9 it's almost the same gun.

When wearing a light-weight shirt, I carry the EC9s IWB, appendix carry. I have small hands, so this Ruger is just right for me. Dependable and accurate.

I use a first gen M&P 9c for my pocket carry. You may want to think about the Springfield Hellcat. It's small and holds lots of bullets.

I've pocket carried my EC9s and LC9S with no problems. The main thing to be concerned about is the kind of pants and shirts you wear. With tighter clothes it can be a challenge. I wear loose clothing and it works well.

I pocket carry a Shield 9mm every day. Choose pants with deep pockets and after a week or so you don't notice the extra weight or bulge. Hardest thing to adjust to was keeping my keys and change in the opposite pocket

+1 on that, my EDC is a PM9 that can be carried in the pocket with a Desantis Super fly in my case.

I have an LC9, it will fit in my front pocket but if I grip the handle I can't draw it. I carry a 642 revolver in my pocket , I can draw with hand on the handle. The PM9 might work better than the Ruger. the 642 is great for a pocket gun. Some don't like revolvers tho.

I used to pocket carry an amt backup in 45 acp in a kraemer pocker holster. I always wore loose slacks with a biigger pocket.

Revolver-only pocket-gun for me, but let me second that S&W nomination. the Shield 9 is a really good gun, as is the .45.

Shoot one at a range before you buy. I found it handles well, recoil is manageable, and it never malfunctioned in my time shooting one, as a friend and I tested a bunch of 9s.
