    Pocket holster with a flap.

    I have been looking into buying a pocket holster for my LCP with a flap a lot like this one (if not actually this one).



    The question I have is I've seen these advertised for the back pocket. Has anyone carried one of these in their front pocket, and do you like it? I like the outline inhibiting flap (and the smooth draw).

    I use an Uncle George's LCP holster very similar to that pictured. He does not market it for front pocket carry but does provide this video to demonstrate that it can be done:

    Yes I have carried one like that for front pocket. Make sure you know what you are getting. There are like 4 different kinds (right or left either sewn or loose). The rear piece makes it look like a wallet or notepad.

    Sewn ones like the one in the picture hold the pistol tighter but you have to extract it a bit before getting a good grip. Loose holsters allow you to fully grip the gun before drawing.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I now use the Desantis Super Fly after bad expereince with the leather ones. But as long as the flap is sewn or affixed with chicago screws, as shown, it should be okay. I had bad experience with the snap on ones, that ALWAYS unsnapped.

    I carry the exact holster you have shown. It's a tough-mother and I love it. It usually rides in my right rear pocket. Although if I'm wearing slacks, it's in the right front. It looks like a big, fat wallet in the front pocket, but that's much better than looking like a gun.

    I wish it had a little thin leather flap that went over the butt of the gun. Some of my jeans have a short rear pocket, and if you look directly down my back, you can see the butt of the gun. I'll often tuck a small piece of paper over it, and it then looks like a small notebook in my back pocket.

    Looks like a "Guru" holster from pocketholsters.com?

    If so, I use it every day in my front suit pants pocket. I need to be discreet at work, and it prints like a wallet. You do need to practice the draw, as you need to work your hand between the flap and the pistol to draw. Easy when you get the hang of it.

    You can also unscrew the flap and use it without, if you wish.

    I carry two spare LCP mags on my belt in a snap-on pouch that was designed for a small digital camera ($10 in the electronics dept at Sears). It looks like a PDA case. No one has noticed it.

    I have this holster for my PM9. I don't like to use it because it is hard to draw from. Yes. it hides well in your front pocket, but whats the point if you can't get it out when you need it? If you draw from your pocket, the pistol tends to get caught on the pocket and there is nothing to keep the holster from moving.

    FWIW, I don't reach between the flap to draw (besides it's heck on the cuticles).

    I've found it quite natural to hook my thumb around the butt, which secures the holster via friction (back pocket) as I draw, and also presses the gun into my palm in about the right place for me to point and shoot. If it's in the front pocket, I push down on the holster with the tips of my fingers while my thumb pulls it free.

    Maybe I got long thumbs?

    I prefer leather holsters for the most part, but The DeSantis Superfly is the best and most versatile in my opinion. With the velcro flap it's even ambidextrious, and can be used with or without the flap. They're quite durable too. Mine shows hard use, but is still good for another year or two I think.

    Desantis Superfly works well in the front pocket. I use it for my LCP and I have no prob drawing wearing Dockers or dress slacks. I could see it being tough wearing jeans though.

    I made a kydex holster of similar design and carry it in a front pocket. Prints like a wallet and nobody notices. (I think!)
