    If you consider the SmartCarry (which has a pocket :) ), the G17 conceals well with the right trousers. A colleague of mine uses this setup without issue.

    Are you talking about just having the muzzle of the gun in your pocket with the grip sticking out? I've seen pants designed for CC that are made that way. The problem with normal pants is stability of the muzzle.

    You can certainly conceal a Glock 17 (19 may be a better choice) other ways (IWB, OWB, maybe a smartcarry) but not with pocket carry. Pocket guns are typically very small (Kahr PM9, Rodebaugh 9mm, Kel-tec P3AT, etc) and the idea is to be able to conceal it with your shirt tail in. The main advantage is you don't have to have your shirt tail out (big advantage in certain situations) and you can take the entire rig out of your pocket easily when needed.

    This will illustrate the size differences between the guns...

    I guess you could pocket-carry a Barrett .50... if you're Paul Bunyan's big brother. Nope, we'd suggest another option. But welcome to The Gang!

    A G17 is too big to pocket carry but if are set on getting one you might consider getting a Smart Carry holster. I have seen a full sized 1911 disappear in one.

    If you do actually get it in your pocket, a better question is how long would it take you to get it out, should you ever have to.

    Hahaha, yes it is too big.

    Some would consider even the G26 too big for pocket carry.
