The smallest pistol I have is the Shield 9mm, but I don't really consider it to be a pocket pistol. I have fit it into my larger pockets, but I don't carry it that way. I carry 1 or 5 or in the Incog Shadow Eclipse IWB holster.

My S&W 340 Air Lite.
Because it is a true Pocket Gun - and that's how I carry it - in the back pocket of my jeans.

I've talked a lot of smack about Taurus over my years, but the Taurus 738 TCP is the best pocket pistol I've used. They did such a good job that I'm willing to give their new fruity colored Spectrum a try when it ever comes out. LOL

Shield 40 is the smallest I've owned/carried. Tucks in nicely at 1 o'clock IWB in a simple Uncle Mike's neoprene; nothing fancy. Cop friend carries his tiny Glock 42 380 in his shorts pocket all the time, and likes it. But since I'm in CA, I can't get that one (or most any handgun that's legal almost everywhere else).

Glock 42/43, Kahr PM9 or J-frame. The grips on these weapons, with standard mags installed on the semi autos, are all short enough to fit comfortably in the front pocket of the pants I wear. My S&W Shield and Walther PPS M2 have a bit longer grips, even with the standard capacity mags, making pocket carry impractical.

Ruger Gen 2 LCP 380. It's not my EDC. But I do drop it in my pocket in a Remora holster when I take my dog for a walk in my neighborhood. Just in case I run into any 2 or 4 legged critters.

S&W model 29 with an 8" barrel.

If I'm going to pocket carry I might as well impress the ladies while doing it.

Ok, fine. Glock 43.
