    DeSantis Nemesis new j-frame design..to me anyway.

    I have been trying to find a good pocket holster for my Smith & Wesson 638. I also want to be able to carry some speed strips. I usually drop a couple speed strips in an Uncle Mike's size 1 pocket holster in my opposite pocket from the gun. This makes for a small dilemma. To reload, I use my left hand, holding the gun upside down and eject the spent cases with the thumb. I wanted a way to grab a speed strip with the right hand while ejecting the spent cases with the left. I was going to get a speed strip wallet that went on my belt, then saw this. The DeSantis Ammo Nemesis. It has an attached slot for a speed strip to allow me to do what I described above. And I can also carry two more speed strips the same way I have been already. And hey, it was affordable too.

    Don't mean to rain on your parade, but I never carry anything in my pocket when I am carrying with a pocket holster. My concern is that something could get loose, get between the trigger guard, and somehow the trigger gets pulled.

    Very very unlikely, and even more difficult with a revolver, given the cylinder will have trouble rotating. But something you may want to consider. I don't know how tight the speed strip snugs in there, so perhaps a tight fight would eliminate such concerns.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    It fits in there nice and snug. Plus the trigger cannot be accidentally pulled unless 9-10 pounds is placed on it the full length of the trigger. I am certainly not worried about that. That is why I only choose a DAO weapon for pocket carry.

    Well that's kinda neato. Have Nemesis holsters around here but not like that one. May have to upgrade.

    I agree....I use the Nemesis line as well and that one looks very interesting. Thanks for posting this and letting us know they are out there.

    By the way, I got mine from MidwayUSA.com

    Great prices and fast shipping.

    And and update. I carried in my blue jeans pocket all day at work today. Including the motorcycle ride to and from work. I am satisfied. It is a little snug in my jeans pocket, but fits great in my 5.11 Taclite Pro Pants pocket.

    I like it. I don't pocket carry often but that looks like it will work pretty good. I had given up on speed loaders and speed strips and have been using a small zip lock baggy for spare ammo. Might give it a try.

    Wouldn't that take forever to get it reloaded? I can empty the gun and reload using speed strips in under 5 seconds. I am also getting fast and can do it without looking.
