10 Pocket Pistols for the Gun Lover in Your Life This Christmas

Glock G26 Gen5

Quickly dubbed the “baby Glock,” the G26 comes in at a great size for semi-auto pocket carry. Featuring a smaller frame than the G19, the G26 features a grip that supports only two fingers. Likewise, the shorter slide and barrel help make it small enough to fit into a pocket. However, the double-stack magazine still delivers a standard capacity of 10 rounds of 9mm.

MSRP: $660.99
