This is a discussion on If you pocket carry, do you use a pocket holster???? within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Always and without exception. Best, Jerry...
Always or almost always.
Most of the time
Then absolutely I agree that you should use a pocket holster.
I do not have a problem with anybody using one or not using one if they are going to be safe about it.
Normally I carry OWB in the very best of holsters.
At the same time I have (or see) no problem at all (for myself) slipping a S&W J-Frame into an empty coat pocket to strut the mutt around the block.
That is the reason why S&W originally made a small frame revolver. So that it could easily just be slipped into a pocket.
I certainly love it when every person who carries any firearm takes whatever precautions he/she feels are necessary to make whatever firearm safe for that person.
I just don't think that we should rewrite document-able firearm history.
Always. Wouldn't even think of going without.
Always. Safer that way.

This is what I do when I carry a handgun in a pocket. I frequently pocket carry with no holster.
I've recently purchased a NAA 22mag that I've carried a couple times in the front pocket without holster. Definitely need one to keep the orientation correct, and from getting it scratched up; can't currently find one small enough, so may have to end up ordering one. Only problem after that would be figuring which pocket to carry in.
I dont pocket carry but i voted yes because if i did i think i would have a holster for it. I tend to carry alot of crap in my pockets. Keys, knife in right front and cell phone and flashlight in left front.
I keep my P-3AT in a Fist #5 pocket holster.

In pocket, the 442 is always in a Kramer.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
+1 on the FIST pocket holster.
I carry my snubbie in one. The main objectives of the using the holster are to keep lint, coins, etc away from the gun and just as importantly to act as a reminder to keep the finger off the trigger as the gun is being removed from the pocket.
It should always be in a pocket holster. Makes no sense to take a chance of a AD. The DA trigger is no guarantee the trigger cant be pulled. Better to be safe than sorry.

For pocket carry I always use one of Mika's pocket holsters. It's a great value, keeps my J frame from fouling up with pocket litter.
