    Looking for a pocket holster for my 642

    I plan to use my 642 as a BUG, and have been looking into a pocket holster. I want one that makes it appear that I have a wallet in my pocket, and not a holstered pistol. I usually carry my wallet in my front right pocket, but may have to move that to my rear pocket. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I bought a DeSantis Nemesis on Saturday for $19 but I already don't like it. It will be ok as a scabbard for the 642 when my girlfriend purse carrys but as far a pocket holster is concerned it is kind of bulky. Maybe a kydex would be better.

    It won't look like a wallet, but it won't look like a gun either.

    I bought my husband a Desantis Superfly, which has a textured, "almost sticky" (not gooey-sticky) no-slip surface to help keep the holster from sliding around. He will on occasion wear the holster in a large jacket pocket, so the the texture has been handy keeping it in place. The holster comes with a removable flap that creates a "wallet" look.

    Another vote for Mika. Square and round versions shown as bookends in this photo. An inexpensive Uncle Mike's is used in small pockets and the leather DM Bullard fits my warm-ups and pj's pockets nicely.

    +1 on Mika, not pretty, but very functional and for the price you can get both round & square bottomed ones. The DeSantis Super Fly is also a great holster.

    You get a lot for the money in Mika's holsters. I find them a little too bulky when compared with other pocket holsters.

    Regards,

    I have a roundcut Mika and I like it but it doesn't look like a wallet. To get that profile you really need something with an antiprint panel.

    The K&D Pocket Defender Convertible 2-in-1 has a removable panel which is a nice option. K&D Holsters | Custom Gun Leather and Shooting Accessories


    Another worth checking out is the Milt Sparks PCH-RI. It has a smooth front. Milt Sparks Holsters

    +1 on the Mika...very nice. But I gotta admit... the Kramer is pretty nice.

    No Body's mentioned my favorite. Pocket Concealment Systems (Pocket Concealment Systems, Inc.: Pocket Holsters), best I've tried yet. K&D with an anti print panel might look more like a wallet though.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. The Desantis Superfly seems like something I am looking for.
