    In the event you need to access your pocket carried weapon quickly, what do you do when seated someplace like a restaurant or in a vehicle?

    If in a chair turn body to left and drop leg limp to access pocket. In vehicle unholster and put in center console.

    in jean its probably tough, i wear mostly cargos, so I try to sit where it is accessible in position, In a car remove and place in a position to access. But for me the best access to a pistol when sitting is the ankle or the hip, so carry another! Two is one... The primary reason I carry two is for accessibility.

    I was thinking of picking up a snubby, but then I got to thinking about accessibility. I typically wear jeans, and I'm not a small guy. Maybe I should stick to my IWB holster.

    Snubby's make great pocket carry. But jeans, not so much (unless you like those really baggy jeans).

    In the restaurant, lift the table up as you stand and fling it towards your aggressor, at the same time, draw your gun....not only will it create a diversion, you will looks super cool doing it....in the car, jump out of your vehicle and hit the ground tumbling...draw while facing upward...

    Try to stick with serious replies in carry question threads that are not located in the Humor ~ Off Topic.
    Or at least add something helpful and/or useful to your humorous post.
    Since the member question has already been covered/answered - your post can stay since it is funny.

    I have thought out that question myself. I have two holsters for my P-3AT...a pocket holster and an IWB/SOB. If I'm going to be sitting for a long time, it's the SOB approach.
    If caught with only my pocket holster and sitting...you better be ready to stand in an instant if trouble is brewing.

    Having pants with pockets suitably sized for the purpose helps. Of all the pants I have worn in the past several years, these two seem to best accommodate pocket carry, for me: Cabela's 7-pocket Hiker stretch pants; and 5.11 Class-A Uniform Pants. Most everything else simply doesn't have quite enough room in the pocket area when seated.
