I received my uncle george's wallet holster a few weeks ago and have been using it as much as possible to get a feel for it. I don't think it's going to work for me. For one, the back pockets on 75 percent of my pants just aren't deep enough. Secondly I find sitting on it very uncomfortable. I have decided to give font pocket carry for my LCP a try and have seen quite a few people mention both the Mika and the Nemesis pocket holsters. The Nemesis is about 1/2 the cost of the Mika but I don't mind paying the extra at all if the Mika is a better product. What do you all think?

i love my nemesis very simple to the point and doesnt seem to collapse like the uncle mikes. and the can be found on line and localy for less than $18. i didnt wana wait forever for a mika wich turned out to be just like an uncle mikes.
My Nemesis works fine with my J frame. Got it new on eBay for like $18 as above. Might spring and try the new RKBA pocket holster though. Looks like a good design and you know; you can never have enough holsters...or guns...or ammo...
(My wife disagrees, however).
I have the Mika and it is extremely comfortable and quality built.
And for the most part it only takes one hand re-holstering.

Mika is a good holster, but a bit on the bulky side. I have several for my revolvers. I carry my LCP in the Desantis Super FLy, Like it much better than the Nemesis. Stays in the pocket better, and has a removable flap that totally prevents any printing. They even make one for the LCP with CT Laser
Search for my review and you will learn why I like the Mika.
Mika. Stays in the pocket on the draw, and does not print. Also, he makes a round and flat bottom models, depending upon the kind of pocket you have.

Like so many others faced with this decision, the prices of each make it easy to purchase both. Buy the Nemesis and you can get it very quickly (either from a shop or in 3-5 days from some place like Midway USA, etc.), and place an order for the Mika Round Cut. You'll like the Nemesis and get good use from it. Then, one day out of the blue, Santa shows up and your Mika arrives. The reason I said get the round cut is because many pants have differently shaped pockets. The Nemesis is more of a square cut (though not completely), and the Mika's round cut will allow you to switch holsters depending on the pants you're wearing at the time. I carry my 642 in both holsters about the same amount of time. I will say that if I had to choose one, it would probably be the Mika because the Nemesis has formed to the 642 so well I have to push it out of the holster with my thumb or middle finger on the draw, while the Mika releases it easily.
