    Best J-Frame Pocket Holster??

    I'm stuck everyone. I've tried the new DeSantis superfly and just bought a leather model. Neither work well. The DeSantis adds a lot of unnecessary bulk and neither stay in my pocket on the draw stroke.

    Can you show me pics of your pocket holsters??

    Thanks!

    P.S. I have Thunderwear and a Blawkhawk paddle as alternate means of carry - I just want the ideal pocket solution for my 642!!

    I use a Kramer Pocket Holster for my snubby. Does everything a good one should. I'd also take a look at PCS holsters.

    I have the Desantis Nemesis and a Mika round cut. I almost always use the Mika, and love it. Plus, Robert Mika is a pleasure to deal with. I use the Nemesis in square bottom cargo pockets if absolutely necessary, but the Mika is the primary pocket holster.

    + (whatever the number is now) on Mika

    I got the Mika out this morning for the first time this year to carry my 442.

    Carried with it most of last year and believe it has to be the easiest way during warm weather. It is well designed, very affordable and not noticeable (especially in cargo shorts).

    My 642 is my most carried weapon...and it resides in a Mika.

    The holster stays in your pocket and the weapon presents faster out of this holster than any I've ever used.

    I don't pocket carry my J-frame, but if I were going to it'd ride in a Mika.....

    Thanks everyone. Sounds like the Mika's have a huge following. I've looked on their website and have a question for you aficionados, why have most of you selected the rounded bottom vs. the squared bottom? It seems like the square would do a better job keeping the gun in the upright position?

    Thanks again!

    Round cut for most applications (or, at least, in my experience, most of my pants).

    Square cut for BIG pockets.
