    S&W shield and Ruger LC9

    I don't consider either a pocket pistol and I own both. Take a look at the S&W Bodyguard .380 and the Ruger LCP, also chambered in .380.

    They both are pocket firearms......I pocket carry the BG......as long as you don't wear your pants like Elvis, I see no problem pocket carrying any of the mentioned firearms.

    I only have exp. with the LC9 and have no complaints about it. However if I had a someone offer to trade me a Sheild for my LC9 I would consider it... Here is a link for you Handgun Database - Compare Handguns

    I have a S&W BodyGuard. I have an empty wallet that I did a little cutting on.

    My .380 fits in it and it goes in my back pocket.

    I think you misunderstood my post. I own ALL FOUR of the firearms in question. I do not consider either the Shield or the LC9 to be pocket pistols. I do, however, pocket carry the BG380 and the LCP. Sorry for any confusion.

    thanks bigcitychief

    interesting how i mentioned two 9mm's and the 380's popped up
    i owned the lcp and didn't like it
    there is no way i could practice with it enough to get proficient and comfortable - just too much recoil and hurt the hand the way it is so light and narrow

    i am thinking of the sig 238 HDW model for the weight or the sig 938 - but i hope they will make a 938HDW for the extra ounces

    Good luck with the Sig. Both the Equinox and the Nightmare are beautiful firearms.

    I have an LC 9 and a pocket holster for it. It carries reasonably well when I wear khakis. It definitely wouldn't work with jeans.

    Anything bigger than an LCP I carry IWB, so I don't consider them to be pocket pistols.

    With baggy pants, maybe.

    I carry the LC9 or a 642 revolver. they'll work in khakis or in cargo pockets. The Shield would also work but it adds even more weight than the LC.

    Own both LC9 and Shield. Like the Shield just a bit more. It's all in the trigger pull. For a true pocket pistol I have a Sig P238, but I don't carry it very often. Just have never been comfortable with the 380.

    After reading an earlier post I also carry a S&W 640, in 357. Now that makes me real comfortable.

    Carry the Shield in a pocket holster on occasion. Prefer it IWB, though. My Taurus 85CH and 650 work better in pocket.
