Pocket holster question - heavy holster print
I ordered a Galco ambi pocket holster for my 638 and it showed up in the mail yesterday. Naturally I popped the snubbie in it, cleared my right pocket of Chapstick, etc. and dropped it in my pocket. I was wearing fairly heavy work shorts with deep pockets. My initial impression was "all good, this will probably work". But I quickly realized that any forward movement of my right leg, like placing my foot on a short step, caused a world of printing of the holster itself. Yes, it's a bag holster off the rack but it's decent horsehide construction. However, the double stitching and design of what I'll call the top of the holster is extremely rigid. The "top" is that part of the holster that closes over the top of the 638....hopefully that makes sense. In looking at other holster designs, like the Fist #5, they also seem to have that rigid backbone in the construction of the holster.
So on to my question; is this holster print fairly typical in most leather pocket holsters? At least those that are fairly heavy in construction? I'm wondering if a Remora style is the right direction. Or should I take a new horsehide holster and beat the mortal snot out of it to break the intended design? That seems like a weird course of action.
Thanks in advance for the input.
