I have a pair of the Keltec pocket 9's

and one of them pretty much stays converted to .22lr, with the Twisted Industries unit on it. It's DAO, of course, and such a lw, compact gun doesn't lend itself to precision accuracy, but it's not hard to hit 2" disks with the .22 unit, at 50 ft, and that will put a lot of small game into the pot. The 9mm variant is my EDC pocket piece. If you look around, PF9's can be had for $250 each, and KT fixes any problems for free, with no argument. RTK sells trigger job parts for the KT's, which help quite a bit.

My main complaint about this gun is the undersized trigger guard, but I move with the weather, twice per year, so wearing gloves is not likely to be an issue for me. My Filipina prefers the Kahr CW9. Women's pants pockets are too small, and their other types of clothing lack pockets, so the slightly larger, heavier, more "shootable" (than the CM9) variant was the logical choice for her.

I just don't see the point in practicing/competing/hunting with big heavy guns that you won't have when you need a gun.

This is great way to carry in tight pants and it shoot great in holster too . This holster is legal because the slide is exposed and they make it for other guns .

I'll stick with my Kydex homemade pocket rig, thanks. It features a velcro tab that keeps it in place in coat or pants pocket, but allows me to "palm" rig and all between pockets, when the heavy coat must be doffed or donned.

I live in the desert in Tx and T-shirt and short are the normal every wear for 340 day a year . It is 69 right now and it is only 10:45 in the morning and I don't own a heavy jacket . I have ton of pocket holsters like the one below which are rubberize on the outside to stay in pocket and a slick inside for easy draw . .

obviously, you don't know much, or you wouldn't be counting upon a mini-revolver, or be using holsters that don't permit a firing grip to be taken with the gun fully holstered. Poor design, that.

I am getting a feeling you do not play well with others

Maybe you should pick up your toys(lies) & go home.

I dont care what ignorant people think. It's been known for over 40 years that you don't want to have tp "pluck" the gun part way out as you draw and THEN get a proper firing grip. Under lethal stress, that's a stupid complication.

Anybody who doesn't know any better than to rely on an awkward, slow, feeble gun as their defensive piece just aint worth discussing anything with.
