    It's in a pocket holster, but I can thumb the holster off the gun and shoot through the pocket.

    I've only read about doing this and practiced it with an empty weapon.

    I hope I don't light myself on fire.

    Honestly, it's one of those limited application things. Most of the time it would be better to get the gun out of the pocket and out in front of you. But sometimes sneakiness is a virtue.

    apvbguy I just sweep it up just like a shirt or sweat shirt. I don't wear 3/4 lenght coats, only jacket length. I also carry in a appendix poisition or front front pocket. And 26 years of pracrtice makes for change very little

    When buying coats I pick those with snaps or velcro. I snap the coat higher up and am able to sweep the bottom if need be. I also carry a snubby in the breast zip pocket. When driving I can't get under the coat quick enough.

    To keep a low profile remember anyone with an open coat in bad weather is assumed to be carrying.

    Problem some people have with gloves and revolver is the gloved finger will not go far enough forward after first shot to permit the trigger to reset.

    To solve this problem some chose the DA/SA semi auto. Here after the first shot the trigger only needs to go forward a slight distance to establish a single action pull.

    For a "parka pocket" semi auto you might look at the sub compact Beretta Storm

    Unfortunately I just got a Beretta 92FS a few months ago. Great gun but I doubt they have pocket holsters for it. Thanks for the kind help though.
