I'm not going to get into this topic to deep because of going off topic but thought I would mention it. I see Alot on here about carrying in said pocket or purse etc.
    Pocket carry is usually all I do but it is ALWAYS in a holster designed for that purpose. I don't know of a whole lot of people who pocket carry without a holster ... at least not that post here. Most of the posts will identify what holster they are using. For example I pocket carry a Kel-Tec P-3AT and a Ruger LCP with Crimson Trace laser grips. For each of them I have a www.pocketholsters.com leather convertible holster with billfold backer ... no printing, good draw.

    I currently have a Ruger SP101 in .357 and it has a hammer. It works fine, but I didn't originally buy it with pocket carry in mind. It's fairly heavy, but very reliable.

    If I were shopping for a pocket revolver, I'd probably go with the Ruger LCR. I got to handle one at the NRA Annual Meetings and I thought if was very impressive. My 2nd choice would be one of the S&W airweights.

  4. From a reliability perspective, you cannot go wrong with S&W 438, 638, 442, 642 (38+p) or 340, 640, 649 (357mag or 38+p), all hammerless. Visit your local retailer and find the one that best fits your hand. I've owned numerous S&W's, both revolvers and pistols, and I have loved every one of them.

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts and advice. I just came home with a new s&w 442 and cant wait to get it out to the range, just waiting on the ammo.

    I have a S&W 340PD chambered for .357 with Craig Spegel Cocobolo grips. I bought it back in 2002. It is an excellent pocket gun. I shoot .38spcl at the range and carry it with .357mag. Theory being, once Mr Adrenaline kicks in, you won't feel that mule kickin' in your hand.

    Four things belong in your pocket: Comb, Wallet, Car keys and a S&W J Frame!

    I had a 442 for a week. Everyone that handled wanted to take it home. My brother ended up with it. Now I have to get another one. Good choice.

    NAA SA revolver. Most petite.

    S&W Model 38 (638), can be fired more than once, DA, from inside your pocket.
