    Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but if you do switch your wallet to you right side so you can have your firearm strongside, don't accidentally pull out your gun when you go to pay for something. You may get a negative reaction from the clerk.

    I have a 642 that I front pocket carry. I used to keep my money clip in my left rear pocket, but that place is now used for two speed strips. The money clip is in the right side, it was awkward at first, but it becomes natural with time just like anything else.

Drawing and firing weak handed is just a matter of training time. Most likely the action will be up close and possibly one handed, if you have to aim to take a longer shot you might have time to switch to your strong hand or at least get two hands on the gun. One problem I have found with carrying in the left back pocket is that the magazine release is no longer cushioned by my butt and if I sit on a hard chair for example, the mag can release. In the right pocket, the mag release is not exposed. I use an old Uncle Mike's pocket holster, maybe one with more padding around the mag release would help. Mine is over 10 years old and will probably last another 20 or so by the looks of it. I typically carry my primary IWB with an untucked t shirt, Hawiian shirt, or Guyabarra. It covers the back pocket anyway so I think getting it picked would be unlikely. Get a little bit of velcro sewn into the top of the pocket to seal it closed if it's a concern for you.
    I do the same thing with my Kel-tec P3AT in my left back pocket for the same reasons and primary on the right that changes but the BUG does not.

    I work in a BAD area of Miami. I'm the only Anglo for miles, or so I'm told. I am regularly approached by one manner of trash or another "hey man, give me a couple of bucks". It would not be natural to put my hand behind me, cause I am not giving them anything. Instead my hand is in my front pocket curled around the hogue grip on the 3AT. I look natural, and am as ready to pull as I can be.
