I am looking at either a Ruger LC9 or a Glock 43. Thoughts?

I would trust my life to either one, but I know the Glocks better........SO...........Glock 43 If I had to pick one.

I just held my lc9 up to my 365. They are almost identical size. Lc barely longer d wider grip. 365 has better capacity,sights and 100x better trigger

My pockets not as large, evidently.  I went with a Kahr (PM/CM series in 40, though 9 will do the job as well).

FPNI
Or P938

I do miss my G 43

I prefer DAO for pocket carry for fast and safe and compact size. Rohrbaugh R9 is the ultimate pocket 9mm in my opinion.

Seecamp or 365 for me

Glock 43 would probably be my pick.

If you really want a pocket gun, a J Frame, preferably a Centennial is the answer.  Autos, even small ones, can snag on the rear of the slide during the draw stroke.  It doesn't happen every time, but enough to disqualify autos.  I replaced a 642 with a G43 and tried for a year and several different holsters.  I went back to an M&P 340.

I have carried a P938 and switched to a P365.  I enjoy the simplicity and capacity of the P365.  Plus you can have spare 12 and 15 round mags.  I really like the P938 however for just a little more width I have 11 rounds ready to go.

I'm retired now, and it wouldn't have been on the approved list, but I carry a Smith and Wesson Bodyguard .380 in my pocket these days.

You don't even know it's there, but I shoot pretty well with it.

How do you like it, overall?

I’ve been running a G43 for the last 5 years, and I’ve been impressed with it.  It’s a very dependable pistol, and it’s not something that requires any maintenance.  I’ve run a lot of guns in IWB and AIWB in the summer, and sweat on them profusely.  Glocks are the only guns I’ve run thus far that don’t have any issues with corrosion from the sweat, since I rarely clean my guns.  

The P365 is a highly respected pistol, particularly in my agency where at least 60% of officers are running Sigs.  A lot of the Sig guys are running the P365 as an off-duty gun.

My 24/7 gun is a Ruger LCP. I did not feel comfortable with the LCP2 in my pocket due to the trigger. Been carrying it as a backup too on duty. Qualify every year with it since 2016. Ranger T loads. 100% reliable

I've used an LCP for years.   I have use a J frame on occasion (a 638) but the LCP just works better for pocket carry.
