    Good question...It's heavy and a belt is necessary to hold up your cut-offs or pants....With any elastic/stretch as your support, I find the PPK too heavy & will sag terribly...
    As far as printing, I usually wear some sort of denim material & does not look out of the ordinary...Keep all your change/keys in other pocket...:)
    Show a pic when you can....

    Definately a pocket gun. A pocket hoster is requisit! Not too heavy, I even rigged the pocket holster to hold two extra mags :)

    At least not the PPK/S for me! way too heavy and long..

    Anything bigger than a Keltec .32/.380 goes inside waistband.

    It fits in a pocket just fine. I have never carried it in a pants pocket, but I suppose it would fit. It works very well in jacket pockets. Not light, but not that heavy either.

    IMHO it is a bit heavy for normal business attire or dress slacks. The size isn't too large but there are smaller and lighter guns more suitable (bad pun) for pocket carry.

    What USP9 said. I use mine as my primary pocket gun, but it does weigh it down. With the advent of polymer nines in at similar dimensions, I think I might consider one of those instead if I was starting from scratch. They're not as pleasing to the eye, but may be more practical.

    I never felt pistol was all that heavy.
