Carrier for Cargo Pockets
Some time ago, on another thread, I talked about having a leather carrier made for a pocket holster to allow comfortable carry in a pair of cargo or BDU pants. Sorry to take so long but just got some pictures made. The pocket holster is an Uncle Mike’s size 3 carrying K-T P11 with a plus 2 grip extension. The high friction stripe around the holster will carry the pistol in normal pockets fine, but in the larger and more voluminous cargo pockets it will rotate around with the pistol.
Most times I am on duty I am wearing a BDU uniform and use this rig to carry my backup gun in one of the cargo pockets normally on the offside leg. The leather carrier is ˝ inch smaller that the inside of the pocket. The boy who made it for me did not charge me anything but has made several for other officers at $15 to $25 depending what they wanted. The newer ones have the lower corner chamfered ˝ inch allowing easier inserting in to the pocket.
It makes for a very comfortable and stable carry without the pistol and pocket holster moving around in the cargo pocket. The weight feels funny for the first little while when you put it on. But now it seems strange not to have the weight there when I put on the duty belt. No one as ever noticed and just assume it is some other piece of equipment. I hope this helps. I will be glad to answer any questions.
