Nice! That's pretty low profile.

I love my Smith & Wesson M&P9c and recently got a Remora no-clip holster for it. I got the holster so I can carry the gun around comfortably while wearing shorts and sweats.
But today I decide to see if the gun will conceal in the front pockets of my Dickies. And, surprise!, it did. I had to use the flush magazine, but it concealed completely without much of a print:
I'll take more pictures later, but I was shocked, honestly. Of course I feel its weight but it's not unbearable, and it also unholsters well without catching anything. I've been thinking of a BUG for dedicated pocket carry, so I might just get a Glock 26 since it's slightly smaller than the M&P9c, and I know it'll fit.

Wow. If that's how it looks in real life you can't tell. Just curious, how tall are you and what size pants do you wear? Are those exact fit size for you or did you go a size larger?
Deep pockets are nice, I normally wear Wranglers jeans and they have such nice big pockets. At a gun show I purchased a 4 inch Smith Model 25 in 45LC, to avoid all the “how much you asking” questions I just dropped it in my right pocket, only about 1 inch of grip showed.

That's cool, but remember to test when you're walking around as well. I dropped an airweight in my pocket (no holster) and all was good until I started moving.
Looks well concealed but how is it for drawing? I can't imagine wrestling anything larger than my LCP from pockets like that.
Yeah I also wonder how easy it is to draw.

Thanks for the responses! I updated the photos in the original post, but here they are:

I sometimes carry my SW model 65 round butt 4 inch barreled 357 magnum with a bobbed hammer in a homemade pocket holster. I can comfortably carry it with hardly any type of pistol printing. It actually hides better then auto loaders I have of the same size. Dark colored clothes hid pistols very well...
I can do the same with my Glock 36. I was totally surprised. I just need a really good pocket holster now.
Not the M&P, but a S&W99c (I suppose they are about the same size and shape) can be
carried in a pocket. For me it is a bit of a snug fit but certainly not impossible. The particular
pants make a difference. I'm 5 10 1/2 and about 200. The pockets on most 40 Wranglers work well.
Somewhere on this board Gasmitty suggested carpenter jeans. And it works well in those.
I don't like it for a carry gun (prefer something smaller and lighter) but it works.
