Comment(s)

A vast majority of today’s small- and medium-caliber (and even some large-caliber) handguns are ideally suited for concealed carry in a trouser pocket, but lest we forget, back in the early 20th century, pocket pistols were often carried in a jacket or overcoat pocket, and there is nothing to say that one cannot do the same today!

Click here to see the Pocket Pistols Buyer’s Guide (in alphabetical order)

A-BC-DE-H KM-NP-RSc-SmSp-StT-W

There are two categories of “pocket pistol”; those that can be easily carried in a pocket holster tucked discretely in a trouser pocket, and those that are not quite as compact and better suited to covert carry in a belt or paddle holster, IWB, or shoulder rig. Whatever your preference in carry method, all of the various models in this latest Pocket Pistols Buyer’s Guide are classified as “pocket pistols.”

Traditional styles remain the core of concealed carry, and there are a significant number of what some refer to as “old style” revolvers and steel-framed semi-autos. As a result, many people prefer conventional handguns with a proven track record from traditional manufacturers.

The pocket pistol pendulum also swings broadly toward new technology, combining polymer frames, lightweight alloys and steel to produce handguns that are lighter, smaller and more powerful than their size would suggest. Designs that have used a combination of polymer and steel parts have allowed manufacturers to scale down .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP handguns to sizes that were once theoretically impossible.

No matter what your personal preference, you should be able to find a handgun in this expansive listing that suits your needs, even if you don’t put it in your pocket!
