    I carry mine in a Desantsis Nemesis & it works like a charm & can be had for under 20.00. If you want something really cool look at a littlebearholsters.com there's a sweet stingray pocket holster there.

    K&D or Pocket Concealment Systems. Tried the others, not even close for me.

    I had a Mika...they are excellent...sold them with the gun. However, I have really always wanted a Kramer Leather

    I have a Mika and a RKBA on order for my 642. Once I get them I will post a review.

    Right now I am using a basic Uncle Mike's #3.

    Search out Fist holsters in the above 'Related Links'. I have purchased over 30 of them...quality, reasonable, quick delivery.

    My 442 is exclusively in a Kramer. IMO none better.

    I almost never carry a 642 in the pocket. I do have a Wild Bill's pocket holster I bought some years ago. It is excellent, but I consider pocket carry of even the 642 more weight in my pocket than I want.

    I have a Mika holster for it, but find his holsters too bulky to suit me.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I have used many different types of pocket holsters, but for me, the Mika is the only one for me. It beats all the others hands down.
