    Glock Pocket carry

    Does anyone carry a subcompact (26,27 etc) in a pocket holster? Do you find it comfortable or is it on the bulky side (given your specific type of pants)?

    I carry a 26 daily and have a pocket holster for it which is its now a safe holster during my sleeping hours. Although I love my 26, it is too bulky/heavy for pocket use unless I am wearing baggy cargo shorts with a heavy belt ald keep it in my strong cargo pocket unbuttoned. Hope that helps!

    Same here. G26 is a little too bulky for pocket carry.

    S&W 642 works for pocket carry.

    The Glock should only be carried in a holster that properly and completely covers the trigger guard. It is not suitable for pocket carry and should not be carried in this manner.

    Did you mean the Glock is not suitable for pocket carry, period? Or is it okay with a pocket holster that "properly and completely covers the trigger guard"?

    From a size standpoint, the G26 or G27 seem a bit large for carry in pants pockets. I suppose they would fit in some pockets of winter jackets or coats.

    It is too bulky for pocket carry for me, but if it is in a good holster that covers the trigger, there is nothing wrong with pocket carry.

    My kydex pocket holster (which as I said I only use for storage in the safe) does completely cover the trigger guard 100% which also stands the pistol up for quick draw. That holster makes the pistol completely suitable for pocket carry, aside from the size/weight issues.

    How do you draw the pistol from the holster with one hand, if it's a friction-fit kydex holster in your pocket? Is it attached to the pocket in some way? Or does it simply fit the pocket in such a way that drawing the gun leaves the holster behind? (If this last is true, doesn't it print badly?)

    I agree that it's too bulky for pocket carry. It works great in a IWB holster. In these cold winter months I use a pocket holster in my jacket pocket, and that works perfectly.

    Glock Pocket Carry?

    I guess nothing surprises me...but even a KelTec fills my pocket. Anything bigger would either be too bulky or difficuly to retrieve...

    What holster can you find that will cover the complete trigger guard(Glock) securely and yet allow the pistol to be drawn/presented without the holster w/one hand. IOW, reach in and come out with pistol ONLY.

    To me the inside the pocket weapon would be a small,light,revo,or a small, as light as possible, DAO auto with a very long trigger take up.

    It is as important(IMO) for the pocket pistol/revo to be very light as it is square(L X H X W).

    The small Glocks ,to me, will not fit the bill.

    Now...this with knowing a fellow that carries a Kimber UC in a holster in his pocket. Not for me. ----

    I would think that any " pocket glock" would make a certin segement of the " ladys " think you are entirely too glad to see them lol .

    With the right pants and the Desantis Nemisis holster, you could do it. Not sure why you would want to, but it would be as safe as any Glock and look like you're carrying a blackberry.

    It has a tiny curve at the top for a thumb pressure draw so the holster stays as you apply pressure to the holter with your thumb. ( I hope that makes sense because I confused myself, i think).
    The size of the gun alone prints bad in a pocket, unless its a really baggy cargo pocket. Even then the weight is an issue and you really have to belt up tight. Still not practical because of size/weight, but the holster makes a good attempt.
