A small, 10-round version of the TX22, striker fired, with or without manual safety, maybe 10-12 oz loaded, perfect for pocket carry.

The Taurus TX22CCW. If they built one, would you buy it?

That is an interesting concept that Taurus might well look into. There are those that may not be able to deal with the recoil of a larger caliber that it will appeal to. To me, the .22 would be a less effective attractive to the many small .380s and 9mm pistols available. However, the TX platform is a good one and it certainly would be better to carry than nothing at all.

the other .

No diff if the 'striker fired pistol'is in a pocket holster or belt holster. Trigger is covered, it's safe. Magazine safety is just another unnecessary feature, something else that can go wrong. The simpler the gun, the better, and less chance of malfunction during a lifesaving moment.
