    Pocket Holster Questions...

    Hey all, I have been carrying my little .380 in my pocket wrapped in an Uncle Mikes pocket holster. It rides well and provides quick and easy access, but it makes my leg sweat bad right where it rests. I know the Uncle Mikes material is rather thick and creates enough friction to make me sweat. I was wondering if anyone else deals with this issue? Would a leather holster cause the same issue? I once carried a Ruger LCR in a Bianchi Leather pocket holster and I don't recall this issue happening. Even in the summertime. I am thinking of buying a RKBH Pocket holster. It looks like a nice holster and the price is just right too. I am open to others opinions.

    Well I have done alot of research on pocket holsters for my lcr. And one name keeps coming up and it is Robert Mika. I ordered one about 3 weeks ago and it has not arrived yet and i am waiting till this weekend to contact him. But if what i have read is correct should be a great holster. You may want to check them out.

    I don't like the Mika. Its a fabric that will make me sweat and they are difficult to get a fast easy grip.I am either getting a leather or kydex. Kind of leaning toward the kydex with a thumb push tab.

    I use a thin stiff Formed leather custom holster for my 642 smith. Perfect

    Supposedly, Kramer is tops, and for 100 bucks it had better be. I am considering a Ritchie for the SIG 938 I'll get in a week. Have heard RKBA is pretty good.

    Top Gun Supply has Ritchie holsters in stock. Did not care for the Nemesis I had for a j frame.

    Have not run into this problem when I carry my Kahr PM9. I live in Ventura where it is frequently pretty warm. I carry in a Remora or a Galco when I carry this pistol.

    Nemisis works for me. I added thickness to the non gun area to keep printing down... looks like a wallet now.

    I liked to use a nemesis when carrying a LCP though i used mine in right rear pocket. If someone asked for wallet it's a very natural draw and is a nice suprise very comfortable and know printing issues I always kept wallet in my shirt pocket anyway to prevent loosing it. So my vote is for leather I've found kydex to be ruff on finish.

    Correction mine pocket holster is not a nemesis but rather the model trickster looks like a wallet with only one side having a protrusion of the grip. Sorry for any confusion.

    Another vote for the DeSantis Nemesis. If you're interested in back pocket or jacket pocket carry, look into Uncle George's wallet holster.
