    Creative options for carrying a second snubby

    I am looking for a creative way to carry a second snub nosed revolver. I currently own both a Ruger LCR and a 638 J frame. My current primary holster is a belly band which I wear at the 4 o'clock position. I have been having some problems pocket carrying due to the pockets in my shorts being to shallow. Due to it being hot as blazes in NC so far this summer, I have been wearing shorts and a tee shirt most of the time. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks

    Pocket carry for sure. Get some nice deep pocket cargo shorts, or do as I, take your drawers and a holster to a tailor and spend $25 on a new custom strong side pocket. I like it because one, your hand doesn't look out of place in your front pocket when you hit orange. Two, in "gimme everything" scenario, you can deliver without a garment sweep and draw.

    I have several snubs, but feel one is sufficent. I do carry a couple of speed strips for reloads just in case. Like the other gent said, one in the BBand and one in the pocket should work pretty well. Good luck...

    I prefer to pocket carry my Smith 442 as a BUG to my fighting sized carry piece, but if that option doesn't work for your dress try a Ken Null shoulder rig. His designs are classic and well thought out. A third option; minimalist carry with something like a Dale Fricke Zac or similar trigger guard holster attached to a tether AIWB.

    I have Zac rigs for my XD Service and GLOCK 23 and like them for certain carry situations. A J frame would dissapear in this form of concealment and be redily accessible.

    Yankee, do you have a pattern or picture on how you have your pocket modified? Thanks.

    I carry OWB strong side and weak side. I practice running the strong side pistol dry and then drawing and shooting weak side.
