    pocket carry in cargo pants

    I read of people pocket carrying in cargo pants. Are you carrying in your regular pocket or the cargo pocket? does your gun not flail around as you walk with it in the cargo pockets? How do you keep it stable?

    I wear cargo pants almost all the time, and I carry with a pocket holster in the regular front pocket. I think it would flop around in the cargo pocket.

    I wear cargo pants most of the time. Besides having the pistol bounce around, the cargo pocket makes for a slow presentation.

    It's just situated poorly, and usually has some kind of flap to be dealt with.

    I prefer to carry my j-frame in the strong side front pocket, and relegate the cargo pockets for other stuff.

    Here is a holster I use in the cargo pocket of my shorts for my PPS on + 100 f days like today:

    Walther Pocket/Wallet Holster

    Need a holster for any pocket carry.

    I've tried both pockets and the regular front pocket works best for me.

    Front pocket, right or left, depends on whether or not it's a cane day.

    Some of my cargo shorts the regular pocket is not deep enough so the butt of the gun shows on the outside (LC9 in a superfly). In those I wear in the cargo pocket, otherwise I carry in the upper pocket. And yes it does flop around quite a bit but it is manageable as long as not walking long. If I am outside walking and not in close proximity to people, I will put it up in the upper pocket anyway and let it show a little.

    How well my CCW fits in a pocket is one of the things I check when shopping for trousers. Anything heavy in cargo pockets will pound on you.

    I've cargo pants pocket carried my g19 a few times around to the house when I've had some guys in to do maintenance work and deliveries. Each time I did, I asked my wife if she noticed anything around my pants area - which she always thought was a joke - but nonetheless, couldn't tell I was carrying.

    I wear cargo pants to work in and I rarely use the cargo pocket for a gun. However I did use it last week for my LCP and it was alright, I'm afraid a heavier gun would flop around too much.

    Upper front pockets only. The cargo pockets get some of my other stuff.

    I agree with most -- front pocket only. Gun bangs around too much in cargo pocket, prints more and is harder to draw. However, the cargo pocket does break up an printing from normal pocket carry.

    My cargo pockets always get caught up on drawer and cabinet handles. PITA!
