I would imagine that the PPS and CCP would be too large for pocket carry as well.Recoil is fine. Shot one last weekend and it was a non-issue.
But too big for pocket carry. Far too big actually, and you'd want a holster too to protect against an AD/ND.
It is great for me. I've been carrying mine for over four years. I have a PPS M2 too and it only gets very limited carry time compared to my P99c which is my workhorse.But would most on here agree that the p99c AS 9mm is a good and well proven carry gun? Maybe not pocket carry, but easy concealed carry?
