Never said that you had to. Hence the "IMO" part of my initial post. Personally, I find the .380 to be an unacceptable cartridge selection for any SD role and no one here is constrained or beholden to my preference(s). If I am going to go to the trouble of carrying/concealing a pistol for "serious social use", it'll be at least a nine, it'll be in a holster and I'll dress around it as need be. Pocket carry (even with a purpose designed holster) is a mode fraught with issues and more trouble than it's worth, IMO. Are you constrained solely to pocket carry for any reason in particular?
