Kahr PM-9 is about the only 9mm (besides a Rohrbach) that might be OK for pocket carry, unless you have really big pockets. I tried one for a while, but I wear mostly blue jeans, and it printed through badly. It also chewed up my knuckle because my hand was too big for it.
I was sold on the idea of pocket carry for a while, and settled for a .380 in the LCP, but I finally went to IWB, mostly, because I can carry a decent SD pistol that way. Chances are that you will eventually come to the same conclusions, but I understand that you will have to see for yourself.
The Taurus is a crap shoot. It may be perfect and last a hundred years, or it may break tomorrow and spend most of it's 'life' in transit between you and the factory.
