you never heard of the Colt buttline....<quoted text>
I dont think I would feel confident shooting a gun with a frame that could be bent by sitting on it.
On another subject, size is relative. Being as tall as you are a .380 in your pocket is probably not that noticeable unless you only weigh about one fitty. Being 5' 2" on a stretched out kinda day I could probably only conceal a derringer in my back pocket. I am not a graceful person, and I tend to be squirmy, so chances are I could find a way to shoot myself in the forehead while carrying a gun in my back pocket.
For you: Gun in back pocket=ok. For me: Any dangerous object in any pocket= bad idea.
i know i know LIM settled down i know it it buntline
