I have a number of firearms suitable for carrying but I'm a bit big, my waist is wider than my shoulders so I needed something I can conceal.
The 442 J frame fills the bill. During the winter it is in my left inside coat pocket and during the summer, in my front pants pocket in a pocket holster.
I carry mine with WW 125g +P ammo. It is a bit snappy but it beats carrying an anemic .380 auto. I've had an issue with the HKS speedloader. The HKS doesn't clear the grips. The 5 star speed loader I just received looks promising. The reliable Bianchi speed strip allows reloading in multiples of one or two and has a low profile.
I have no problems banging 8" plates at 15 yards with this fine firearm. I've put ~ 500 rounds of +p ammo though this handgun and it is holding up fine.
The one issue is it only holds 5 rounds but I plan to deal with that by buying a second one for another pocket or an ankle holster in the near future. I'll take two 442's over one G26. :)
