A pocket pistol is an American term for any small, pocket-sized semi-automatic pistol or, less-popular, any other handgun (e.g., derringer, or small revolver) of (most commonly) small caliber, suitable for concealed carry in either a front or rear pocket of a pair of trousers, or in an exterior coat pocket. Many consider the term solely applicable to subcompact, single-stack, hammerless handguns that are striker-fired in semi-automatic blowback configurations. However, with the advent of newer and smaller double action only (DAO) semi-automatic pistol designs, locked breech concealed-hammer pistol designs of the same subcompact single-stack size are now also called pocket pistols.
In general use, the term pocket pistol is not considered a pejorative term. However, some pocket pistols, often those of lesser caliber, are referred to as mouse guns, which sometimes is considered a pejorative term among those who prefer larger caliber pistols, although not among those who prefer smaller caliber pistols for deeper concealment.
Those of you who pocket carry these little 380 auto pistols, I'm in need of a holster.
There are LOTS of them out there to look at, and several are tempting to my lure. I'd rather not play the buy it/try it game.
I have not decided if I want to carry front pants pocket, or rear..like a wallet...
