I switch between a Ruger LC9s and a Ruger LCP depending on the size of the pocket I have at the time.

My S&W J frame with a Nemisis holster. Out of sight and out of mind all day everyday. If I conceal carry pistols inside or outside of the waistband I still carry my J frame.

If you're not opposed to .380ACP, the Beretta Pico is even thinner than the Kahr P380.

It is thinner (.725 vs .750).
In every other dimension and in weight, the CW380 is smaller.

Agree - but not by much. They are both very small .380's and for pocket carry, some folks look for the thinnest.

If the Picos are less picky about ammo than the CW380 then that would be a big factor.
Kahrs can be very finicky about what you feed them.
Do NOT even try Ficochi ammo in the Cw380!!!

I've seen that as I do like the Kahr's and even had a P380 when they first came out a few years ago. Time will tell with the Pico - Beretta did have to have an early re-do based on the original double guide springs were too tight and causing some FTE's - their redesign is just now a single spring which seems to have resolved the issue. Hitchcock45 did a nice review on them - his main complaint that his big mitts didn't fit the gun very well. ;)

I had the CW380 but sold it recently due to the same problem (just too small).
My .380 now is a Glock 42. Its really only noticeably bigger in length. Its an inch longer but not too much taller and still less than an inch thick so I can pocket carry it in most of my jeans and of course all of my cargo shorts. I really like the G42, much better trigger than most of the .380s!

I carried an XD9 compact in a High Noon pocket holster for a brief time. It worked, but I was never really comfortable with it.

The last few weeks I have replaced my Kahr PM9 with a Kahr P45 for pocket carry.. I'm liking it

The Walthers are remarkably heavy pistols as are the Sig p230s. Sold all of my 380s. J frame is great
What new gun my dear, this old thing?

Best pocket pistol I've ever owned or shot is my wife's Beretta Tom Cat. 8, 32 Winchester Silver Tips, very mild recoil and for a very small, light pistol, extremely accurate and dead nuts reliable. Before you say, "it's under powered" remember the 32 acp was the standard caliber for most of Europene police departments for 40 years. It started WWI and killed a president. All this with less than modern projectiles and powder.

NAA Mini Revolver in 22 Mag. Grossly inaccurate but the noise it makes will scare the bejeeberz out of anyone and its way more effective than a bigger pistol left in a drawer at home. No more annoying in your pocket than the average key chain. I do not live in or frequent high risk areas and this is the only carry piece I've found that doesn't end up sitting in that drawer at home.

Update to say (I know no one may care) I now also carry a Taurus 709 slim that fits my jean pockets okay but my little S&W Bodyguard 380 (no laser) is so compact you barely notice carrying it. I use the Nemesis pocket holster for it and carry the spare mag also. I use Hornady Critical Defense Ammo in both pistols. It definitely has some pop!
Both pistols have proven to be very reliable which is "Huge" to me.

Ruger LCP with a Desantis Superfly. For jeans, I keep it in my back pocket and move my wallet to my left pocket
