While a good holster, belt, and wardrobe choice makes carrying a full size pistol easy and comfortable, not everyone wants to deal with the hassle of dealing with an extra pound and a half to two pounds on their hip. Thankfully, there are many small pistols with a variety of discrete carrying options available.
The benefits of conceal carrying a tiny pistol are obvious. They’re smaller and more comfortable to carry and they’re easier to put into “deep concealment” where they are very difficult to be spotted – excellent if you’re legally carrying in a place that is unfriendly to guns.
The downsides to carrying a tiny pistol are also obvious. Primarily, smaller pistols are more difficult to shoot and you have a smaller round count available.

Always use a holster
Don’t ever attempt to conceal carry a pistol without using a holster. It is important to keep the trigger covered by something hard to prevent an accidental trigger pull. A gun that is stuck into a pocket or waistband without a holster can run the risk of getting something into the trigger guard and pulling the trigger, causing a negligent discharge.
