    Pocket holster recommendations

    Just got a new, to me, Taurus M85 for pocket carry.

    I'll post pics later when I can find my wife's camera.

    In the mean time, would anyone care to recommend a pocket holster for this gun?

    I bought a Desantis Nemesis for my S&W 442 that I like. I'm probably going to get a Mika also just b/c everyone raves about them.

    Google the following Robert Mika . He make a holster for pocket carry that is out of this world and the price is great. He may have a 4-6 back log . But I assure you it's worth the wait.

    Another vote for Mika holsters. Super nice guy and the holster works great and cost is low! I use it for my S&W 642.

    I'm sure Mika's are fine as everyone who has one loves it.

    IMO if you like leather and want the best pocket holster out there go with a Kramer. You'll probably wear out a Mika but not a Kramer.

    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Just started carrying my P3AT in a DeSantis Nemesis. The shape of the holster keeps it in place in the pocket and the material used really helps it stay in the pocket when the gun is drawn. I'm very happy with it.

    Mika holsters are good, I own several, but they are not a high end holster. If you want something in leather check Andrews Leather.

    Pocket holster

    I have been carrying an Uncle Mikes pocket holster with my Kel Tec P32 for 10 years or more. It's worn, but still working fine. Not fancy, not expensive, but still going after all the years in my back pocket.

    I think the money for an Andrews holster is well worth it, along with the wait time. This is especially true if you carry where printing is prohibited.

    The DeSantis Nemisis, Mika, & Uncle Mike's pocket holsters are all good low-end optiions that work. I used an Uncle Mike's Pocket-Pal for about 7 yrs, worked great.

    If you want/willing to spend more, any of the custom makers make great leather pocket holsters. Kydex is a good option, too, because they protect the gun from sweat better.

    I don't have one, but my cousin swears by his Safari-land Model-25 pocket holster for his S&W 642. It's a kydex or plastic pocket holster that's coated with a soft leather-like material & it's curved for your thigh, making it very comfortable for long shifts.

    Leather holsters staying place in the pocket

    As a said earlier, I have a Nemesis that I use to pocket carry my 442, and I really like it. The main reasons I like it are that it's shape really helps it break up printing, and positions the pistol well in my pocket. I think leather holsters could probably do this also, albeit at a much higher price.

    The other reason I like my Nemesis, though, is that it's covered with a soft rubber dimpled material that keeps the holster in place in the pocket while withdrawing the pistol from the pocket. I have to actually twist / turn the holster to get it out of my pocket - it won't accidentally come out. How would a leather holster do this?

    Thanks.
