    Question Pocket Carry

    I just wanted to say I love pocket carry. I have tried IWB, OWB, ankle, smartcarry. I just can't find anything better than pocket carry. Easy to get to, easy to keep concealed. I carry a Taurus 85UL or a Beretta Tomcat.

    My edc is my Kahr K9 IWB, but I pocket carry the Seecamp. There is nothing more convenient than just dropping it in my back pocket and walking out the door.

    I pocket carried just last night when I went to the gym and walked on the walking thingy at 11:30 last night. Just so easy to stick that little 360 in my pocket. There's absolutely no weight to it so it's great for pocket carry.

    Probably the only gun I ever will pocket carry, but still great.

    Depends on my attire. I prefer IWB, but sometimes that just doesn't work. Then, if my pants have big enough front pockets (most do), I carry a Kahr CW9, otherwise my P3AT.

    Because I carry at all times, work dress(business causal) requires a simple pocket carry. I carry a 380 KelTec, or most often, a S&W 642 both in a pocket holster. It is so simple to just drop it in your pocket and not worry about it showing (even tho TN is a carry permit, not a CCW) or the position on the belt....etc... I find I do it that way more and more. I have some nice larger weapons(Sig P229 40, P239 40) but I have simply become spoiled with pocket carry.....

    I pocket carry a Sig p232 or a J frame. It is my preferred carry method.

    I may not have my .45 or .40 on me, but my AMT .380 is always where ever I am.

    I pocket carry only when my apparel dictates it, otherwise I like more firepower than a 5-shot J-frame.

    Since my back surgery, it is my main carry method. When I carry IWB or OWB the weight of the gun causes my back to bother me very quickly, yet I can pocket carry all day long without problems.

    Living in Florida with our tropical climate, my normal carry is a Kel-Tec P3AT second generation 380 in a Nemesis holster, front pocket for shorts, or rear pocket for jeans.

    Had a nice chat with a deputy this past weekend, and off duty he carried the Kel-Tec 32. He said his department was not specific regarding brand or caliber so long as your could qualify with it.

    A backup 357 or 38 is all ways in my pocket. A Glock 26 or a 357 Snub is all ways in the waist band.

    Yes. Most of the time. S&W 340 M&P in a Mika Round Cut Pocket Holster. In dressier clothes it goes in a SmartCarry. A .45 sometimes joins it out on the hip.
