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?

I'd be concerned about lint 'n stuff getting all up in the works. I supposed if you were real dedicated with cleaning, whether you have fired it or not...

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 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.

> Simple! But, if you can't remember those simple rules then (for sure) don't do it.

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!

'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.
