    Pocket holster for cargo pockets?

    I didn't want to move the thread on cargo pants/shorts off topic so I figured it would be best to start a new one, so:


    I wear cargo shorts quite a bit and have been considering sewing some velcro inside of the cargo pockets of a couple of pairs to make a modular holster/mag attachment point.
    A couple of wide strips in the pocket matched to a large enough piece attached to the backside of a pocket holster should keep the gun in place and upright no matter what activity is being done.
    It seems like a decent way to carry a BUG or a magholder.

    Thoughts on this idea?

    You send me a tracing of your pocket and I will make it exact.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    I have a Mika that works great for front pocket carry, but it still allows the gun to move around too much for my liking in the cargo pocket.
    Thanks for the links to the different pocket holsters guys, but I really want something that is attached as to allow no movement. Using the velcro would allow me to also use it as an attachment point for a double mag holder if I needed it.

    MNBurl,
    I may give it a try, but my only issue is that some of my shorts/pants have substantially different sized pockets.

    i just picked up a Desantis nemisis for my 442, works great and is tacky on the outside so it stays in the pants on a draw..Cabela's had it for 20 bucks plus tax.

    +1 for the Nemisis. It's not beautifiul or anything but it is functional and inexpensive.
