With the popularity of Concealed Carry and all fifty states having some form of it there is no question about there being a market for small guns that can be carried in a pocket, in an ankle holster, or in some other way. The pocket gun truly became an option for the public with the Kel-tec series of pistols, but it took Ruger releasing the LCP in order to cause a shortage of .380 ammo and drive up demand for pocket pistols.
To test these guns we used guns that we ourselves actually owned, using factory ammunition that we purchased on a range that we normally use under conditions that most shooters would practice under. The trigger pull was tested by Aaron, the Chronograph data was collected by Ray on all but the XDs-45 (Ran out of daylight for the chronograph).
Each of these guns we compare will have features that make them ideal for pocket carry, but in the end it will be you who must decide which one is the winner. So let us know which one wins in your opinion!
Smith & Wesson
.45 ACP and .40 S&W
