    Happy Kahr PM9 owner here. It fits perfectly in front pockets of cargo shorts but not so good in jeans pockets for me.

    So today I brought home a 9mm Shield 2.0 with a safety and integrated CT laser.
    carried it my pocket without issue. Brought it home and showed it to my wife.
    She promptly said thank you honey and gave me back my Glock 19:/.

    I Have an LCR in .357 that I can get by with in the short term.
    Based on carrying the Shield for about 6 hours I may have to order another one.
    The LC9s Pro is in short supply around here however I was able to order one from Buds. It should be here next week.
    I can’t see it beating out the shield in ergonomics however it does have a 9+1 capacity compared to the shield’s 8+1, as well as an outstanding trigger.
    Both carry equally well in my front pocket however the LC9s Pro needs a pocket
    Sleeve holster due to its light trigger and lack of manual safety where
    the Shield does not due to its heavier trigger and thumb safety.

    Take a look at the sig p365. 10+1 and smaller than a shield.

    Heard about it but I haven’t actually seen anything in stock as of yet.
    Abit pricey but, I am intrigued.

    They are going for less than $499 from what I read but they’re new and trickling in so some dealers are screwing people on prices.
    The thing I read is they need a good cleaning before firing for the first time.

    The Shield 2.0 with a laser is a great choice. Shoot the Shield 45 if you get a chance...the recoil is milder than you’d expect.

    The .45 Shield looks like a 2.0 but does not have the designation.
    I wonder if the 2.0 trigger is in the .45?

    Supposedly the .45 is what the 2.0 trigger anyway was modeled after according to internet lore.
    I like mine.

    I also have a PM9 for summer carry I've been happy with. Can't say enough good things about that gun. I can actually hit targets with it at 10 yards, yet it's small enough that I've forgotten I had it on a couple of times (sorry, post office). There are lots of mouse guns on the market that work well these days, but the PM9 has been the one I've shot best with. Guns are a personal thing though, so hopefully you can get your hands on a few before deciding.

    Shield 9 rides in my front pocket, in a Desantis Nemesis holster. Even with a Hyve mag extension, it fits fine in my Diamond Gusset jeans!! I prefer the Shield over the G43, not exactly sure why, just seems to feel better in my hands and it shoots very nicely. My wife has a Shield 9 as well. Both are great shooters, and disappear no matter where they're being carried.

    I guess I'm in the minority I own a Shield 9mm but I pocket carry a S&W 442. I find the revolver much smoother on the draw from the pocket.

    I have a PM9, P938, LC9s, G42, 43. They are all pretty good little guns. I usually wear them IWB. The only actual pocket carrying I do is with a S&W 442 as it does seem to slip out easier/faster for me. I’d guess the PM9 or G42 would fit best in a jeans pocket. They seem the most compact to me.

    Up until now I have been pocket carrying an LCR, but as I wait for my second Shield 2.0,
    I am carrying my LC9s Pro in a sticky Blackhawk pocket holster.
    So far I usually don't even realize its there.

    Back to my trust S&W 442 for pocket carry. Perfect in that role. With a speed strip or two, I'm not overly concerned about being "undergunned". Feel much better with my springfield ROC in 45 tho, but a pocket piece it isn't.

    Over the years I've owned and carried all the pocket Rugers and have a Glock 42 and a 43, but I've finally settled on the Kahr CM9 for my everyday carry weapon. It shoots well and fits easily into my back pocket. I'm retired LE and always carry -- if I've got my clothes on, I've got a gun on my person, even if all I'm doing is yard work. I've always favored the small Kahrs, which I've owned for years, but my agency limited our off-duty and back-up weapons to S&Ws or Glocks. But now that I'm retired, I can carry whatever I want.
