With some of the awesome tuckable IWB holsters out there and even more concealable options like the Smartcarry, I just dont find pocket carry a very useful method and just want to see if there is something I am missing.
Obvioulsy the best aspect of pocket carry (PC) is that you can have your hand, proactively, on the grip very discretley. However, I cant help but imagone that if I ever find myself in such a position, I probably will not be planning for it; It will most likely be very unexpected and involve very reactive measures and instincts - but who knows, really.
So aside from being able to have your hand on the grip = I think the smart carry has really provided a more comofrtable, more utilitarian (in that it saves a precious pocket), and more discreet method of carry. Saving a pocket is a big deal to me, becuase I carry a very simple array of tools, flashlight, Mtool and pocket knife; throw in a phone, wallet and that pocket becomes a big deal. Not only all that, but the biggest advantage is that allows someone to carry a much larger sized gun than PC.
Based on these reasons, I just have no use for PC. And believe me, I love all those little 380s on the market, I think they are way cool and would love to come up with an excuse to buy one. But, if I am given the choice, I really don't see why I would choose to shove a 380 in my pocket, when I can comfortbaly fit a 9/40, or even 45 in my pants.
I'm just curious - WHo aggress/disagrees?
