    I still think that IWB carry with a loose T-shirt is the safest and quickest retrival for CCW...OMO

    Stay armed...good luck with pocket carry for a big firearm...stay safe!

    I always just try them on with the gun when buying any type of clothes for CCW. Pocket depth and opening width are important for pocket carry.

    I have some JCPenny Arizona brand cargos with zippered side pockets, cargo pockets, and very deep front pockets. It's kind of hit and miss, but there is usually a wide selection. Only problem is, everytime I go in to buy shorts anywhere when summer hits, they have pants and back to school stuff in already!
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    The regular pocket goes all the way behind the cargo pocket. I've never found any pants I can properly pocket carry even my 642 in without the grip peeking out from the pocket. To demonstrate , in the first picture I have a gun in the pocket, in the second picture you can see it's a 38 with a 4 inch barrel. WOW! Now I certainly wouldn't pocket carry this gun, but it proves the point quite well.
    These shorts have the adjustable waistband and a third pocket behind the regular pocket on the right side. These are a ccw holders dream. They were on sale for $25.00, down from $35.00 I believe.
    A little pricey, but they fit the bill.

    Wow, you weren't kidding! I think that I could hide my Thompson Center Contender in there . . . one on each side (if I had two)!

    Thanks for the heads up. I picked up a pair today. Hmm, I wonder if Mika would make a pocket holster for a full-size M&P .45?? I'm sure that it would fit and be invisible in those shorts.

    I do not pocket carry as my main CC option, but I do like having the dfeep pockets on my cargo shorts in order to carry the other essentials. OC, phone, folder, what have you, those deep pockets open up options for guys like me who tend to have slightly longer arms. I'm 6'0" 185lbs but I have arms like a damn monkey!!
