    Backpocket Carry

    My nephew often carries his .357 in his back pocket. Perfect for a "looks like I'm getting my wallet" draw.

    I've tried this with my S&W CS45 and it does pretty good for me too.

    I'm not sure if I got the M&P .45 compact that I'd be as comfortable with it this way or not.

    Anyone else ever back pocket carry their CCW?

    Maybe I'm just ghetto and wear my pants too low, but how can you ever sit down with a J-frame in your back pocket? I'd figure that would hurt, and wouldn't it leave a pretty good print on your rear?

    I have K&D's backpocket holster in use with my mustang and its a winner.
    A j-frame outta hurt sittin' on it. I reserve it to a front pocket holster.

    I don't even keep my wallet in my back pocket. Hurts my back when I sit.
    Being peaceful does not guarantee peace, strength and a willingness to commit violence when needed does.

    I guess that would matter - I'm more like Fred Mertz from the I Love Lucy era - I wear my pants kinda high so it's no problem for me.

    Unless I Have On 5.11...

    Cargo 'type' shorts, I can't imagine a gun in front or back pockets being very comfortable. Even a little KelTec in my back pocket does not feel right...for me...
    Now, I can put my G-36 in the SOB and I don't even know it's there...go figure? (I'm flame-retardant on this one...)

    I have...just doing a quick dog walk or jog to the food mart.
    Jeans Pocket - Untucked T-Shirt.

    I've never done a Back Pocket Carry going anywhere I've had to sit down.

    I've back pocket carried S&W J~Frame - Walther PPK/S - Glock 36 - Detonics - Colt Officers - North American Arms - Seecamp & others - all without any problems or incident.
    All on sporadic rare occasions.

    Many years ago I carried a little Browning .25 Auto that way. It was so small you could darn near lose it in your back pocket!

    i must say i got a p32 last week and it will probably be the gun that saves my life because i carry it anywhere, wearing anything and the light weight and size makes it easy to forget its there, before i would have to leave the glock 23 in the car due to my dress code at work would not allow me to conceal the 23.

    Greeting's All-

    'Bout the only weapon I carry in my back pocket is my newly
    acquired KEL-TEC P3AT .380 ACP; as its small enough so it
    don't draw attention when its in the back pocket of my deeply
    pressed Carhartt jeans.

    I've carried an AMT SA .380 back-up in my back pocket. At times, I currently will carry my PM9 in a pair of cargo pants/shorts.
