I usually don't care for anything under a .40 for defense, mainly carry a .40 AMT Back Up as a pocket gun but it's a bit heavy in Dockers pants. I've recently found myself carrying my Walther .22 just slipped into a pocket of my jeans when I'm not going into Oak Cliff in south Dallas or somewhere, then I carry something a little more serious than a .22...But a sharp stick in the pocket is better than fingernails. I have been considering the Kel-Tec .380 as a replacement for the .22. It will be there day in and day out no matter what the clothing you are wearing.
That said...when the balloon goes up it goes up...your in deep do-do when it happens whatever you are carrying.
Gee...this is kinda like picking out a shirt of a morning...what am I going to wear today?
