    In the pricey range...

    I prefer Kramer pocket holsters. They can be found on Ebay from time to time or ordered directly from Kramer delivered in about 3 weeks. Personally, I don't care much for tuckable. In the more economical range, many like Mika pocket holsters. Do a search, you will find lots of info. Topic has been covered plenty.

    Watching Personal Defense TV yesterday

    Maas Ayoob was standing by a target dummy and the host mentioned he wasn't carrying his .45 ... they proceed through a quick pocket draw.. Guess whose holster Maas was using ... Mika!

    I own a Mika and like mine. A couple friends have them and like them as well. For $20 it's a great holster and Mika is a great guy.

    I like pocket holsters....not that there is anything wrong with tuckables. I like my tuckable holsters too.

    If you use a lot of tighter fitting pants or jeans, the holster will print; it just may not be recognizable as a holster, but the grip might reveal that you are hiding a gun.

    I just received last week a beautiful HBE Speciality Leatherworks pocket holster for J-framed holsters. It's the new home for my snubby Taurus 9mm revolver.

    Hello. I've had good luck with the Galco pocket holster, which is my primary method of carrying the J-frame snub.



    I recently bought a High Noon tuckable IWB holster and it works fine as well.




    Best.

    I like the plain Uncle Mikes pocket holster in stays in the pocket. I had a Name brand high Dollar leather one that would come out with the gun. The idea was to turn the grip when you drew it so that the corners would catch the pocket. But as with anyting with Murphys law and stress I did not trust it. So back the the Uncle Mikes and when they get like a turned up old tennis shoe and smell like it I buy another. Cheap ,but fool-proof in the draw. Lifes to short to have a holster on the pistol when you need it.

    I just got my Don Hume pocket holster about a week ago. It is my first pocket holster so i can't compare it to anything but I like that it stays in one position while in my pocket. I am happy with it and see no reason to swap it for something else.

    If looks is not more important then function, then you can't go wrong with a Mika pocket holster. It is not pretty, but sure works great with my S&W 642.

    Most times, I carry my j-frame iwb (high noon hidden ally - it's also tuckable, but I don't carry it that way).
    That suits my dress style and keeps the gun snug to my side, but occassionaly I carry it in my strong side pocket.
    However, pocket carry, while tactically favorable, is not comfortable for me.
    I wear loose fitting pleated pants or cargo shorts. I find that there is just too much dangle with pocket carry.
    In other words, the gun weighs little but swings with my pants as I walk. I haven't been able to get comfortable with pocket carry.

    I have a scissors-modified desantis Nemesis that's about a year old. The j-frame shape is starting to get really pronounced, so it's printing more now than when it did when new.
