I carry my Glock 26 in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster in my Dockers, and I have never had that problem. Glad that it turned out ok.
Thay also have a great holster for carrying a spare magazine. I've been carrying an extra mag in my back pocket since I received it in the mail.

Much respect for sharing that. I'm not sure I would have the cojones to do so. I'm sure you'll take the necessary precautions in the future. Thinking about the possibilities turns my stomach; when I do end up getting a small BUG for pocket carry/running/etc, your story alone has convinced me a good pocket holster is an absolute necessity.

I appreciate the kind words and accept the rebukes and for sure I'll never carry my J frame in the uncle mikes again.

Thanks for the post! Definitely has me on alert since I frequently pocket carry.
So far no problems with my DeSantis Nemesis, but then again, you never know you have a holster problem until something like that happens!
So, kudos to you for having the character to post your experience! Your integrity does not go unnoticed!
Thanks again sir!

The elevation of awareness resulting from sharing your experience with us is priceless Gideon. Thank God nothing happened.
I will definitely take heed and adjust my CCW method accordingly…

I use a DeSantis Nemesis for my pocket carry, and really like it. I'd suggest giving one a try.

Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

Late to the party, but also wanted to say thanks for sharing!
I've had good luck with a Galco pocket holster. The leather is rough on the outside and smooth on the inside - draw is smooth, but there's enough tension that the gun won't come out accidentally.

I use aMilt Sparks for my Seecamp never had a problem and have one on order for my 642. Good Luck.

Everytime I hear about something like this I think about those that try to claim they are perfect and nothing bad/stupid ever happens them and AD/ND's can never happen to you if you just pay attention. We should not blow this out of proportion and I am glad you posted it. Things happen and we can only try to minimize and learn from them.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Gideon.
I'd recommend trying a Desantis Nemesis or Superfly. Make sure you pick the right size for your handgun.

Thanks for posting your story, it serves as a reminder to all of us. I've had my pockeknife slide out of my pocket like that quite a few times. I often pocket carry a G-27 or an LCP, and I can see how that can happen. Somehow I've gotten in the subtle habit of occasionally readjusting it, checking on it, or touching it during the time I have it in my pocket. So far I've had good luck, thanks again for the reminder.

Looking on the bright side of having a bum hip/leg, it turns out that I need a bit of help with stability the first second after getting upright from a sitting position. Invariably, I find my right hand going to a support, with my left hand in front of the left hip to stabilize things. Nicely, that's the pocket where I carry. Hence, I can mask things while ensuring it remains in the pocket.

Hint: Attach a thin bit of (the stickier/rubberier variety of) neoprene or suede to the outer surfaces of that pocket holster, and it'll stick in there much better. For an example, check the Mitch Rosen Pocket Softy holster.
Anyway. Nice warning, though. Good to be aware of things.

Don't just buy a pistol pocket for your pocket, get a pocket holster. Kramer is the way to go. Don't be swayed by the price, it's very worth it.

Thanks for sharing your story...comes under "one can't fix it if they don't know it's broken". Your story is a great reminder to all...in so many ways.
