    Never thought about it. Trigger protected = no boom, no issues.

    No. But then, I'm not one to over think things or conjure up irrational fears.

    Don't know how you are putting your holster and your gun, but when I sit, my gun is still pointed straight down.

    The sig is a permutation of the Colt Mustang. The mechanism has a pin which locks the firing pin unless the trigger is hld all the way back. So, if the gun shhots, the trigger was held back, firing it.
    I carry mine-- hammer down, safety off and have practiced pulling , cocking and firing it.
    I also use a uncle Mike's pocket or IWB holster.

    what freaks me out more is that I got called for Jury Duty.....again, at the end of this month. Already breaking out in a cold sweat just thinking about going unarmed. This will be the first time since I had Jury Duty in 2007.

    I carry a pistol in my pocket every day. Haven't shot anyone through my pants pocket yet, so I must be doing ok.
    I'll be sure to have a realistic nightmare tonight of accidentally shooting my boss sitting across from me in a meeting in honor of this thread.

    Been pocket carrying for years with no issues. Use a quality holster that covers the trigger fully. Don't put other things in the pocket with the weapon.

    Keep your hand out of your pocket and quit playing with your gun. You won't have any issues.

    One thing I could probably never get over being very uncomfortable about is using one of those IWB front-carry "kangaroo pouches" because there's just some things I'd rather not think about having the muzzle of a pistol pointed at 24/7 regardless of how safe the pistol was.

    Even with the hammer down, I'd still be wondering if walking through a very intense RF field could possibly ignite a primer like it can a dynamite cap, I'd have to stop scratching myself when bored, and what about going to the restroom and triggering the wrong weapon

    I also pocket carry a Sig P238 cocked and locked. Place it in a good holster and don't put anything else in that pocket other than the firearm and you'll be okay. Oh, and I wouldn't play "pocket pool" with a firearm in my pocket just to be on the safe side!

    No not for me. But you should get a better quality holster.

I do carry my sig locked and cocked, Does anyone else feel weird about pocket carrying?
    There's an article on Pocket Carry in this month's GUNS & AMMO HANGUNNER you may want to take a look at.

    First off I would like to thank you guys for the feedback. Just an update I do carry it in the right front pocket in a holster that holds it very well and nothing in the pocket. I guess I just wanted to see if anybody else thought about it at all. I'm one to be very conscious about gun safety which was the concern for my question .

    I have been carring for over 38 years. I have yet to have a gun shoot unless I pull the trigger. I usually carry an old Colt light weight Cobra snubbie in a OTB leather holster as with some of my other guns. I Dont carry a small pistol in a pocket as I feel it is kinda unsafe unless in a pocked holster.
    With my OTB holster and snubbie I forget I even have it on. Just yesterday I was cleaned the leaves out of my gutter with it on.
    I don't feel where the gun is pointed as long as it is holstered makes any difference.

    A gun is always pointing somewhere. It's the nature of the beast. Use a holster that covers the trigger and leave it alone and it's all good. If it's the way the gun works, like cocked and locked, or DAO like a Glock that gives you fits, change guns. Perhaps a revolver would make you feel better.
