    Pocket Carry

    I just found out my favorite jeans can pocket carry a Glock 22. Good idea, yes or no?

    Is that a pistol in your pocket sir or are you happy to see me?

    Unless you can figure out how to walk without a stiff leg and print like crazy, I would say no. That is a big pistola!

    Unfortunately I don't have the Glock 22, it's my friends. And I'm good with 4:30 on the waistband. Just thought that was neat... It prints a little bit, mostly just looks like a huge bulge. It's not something I'd do at a store. I'd no doubt be stopped for shoplifting.

    Make sure the gun is in a holster..even if its in the pocket.

    I know of several incidences of triggers getting fouled and shooting as something was pulled out of the pocket.

    A friend of mine had a .25 shoot through his leg, he was lucky that it only hit muscle. It could have severed an artery and that would have been the end of him.

    Dont carry the gun by itself. Escpecially a Glock.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I'd use a holster of some sort to protect your trigger, or carry empty chamber.

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
