    Hello from beautiful southwestern Virginia

    I just bought a Ruger SP 101 in target grey. I want a pocket holster for it so I thought I would find out what you guys think.

    I have a S@W 25-5 .45 colt I carry in a Simply Rugged but it is way too big for concealed carry IMO.

    I used to have a Mark IV series 70 .45 ACP with ivory grips (I wish I'd never traded that pistol because I get skinned every time ). I carried it in a Bianchi shoulder rig but back then I wore a sports jacket most of the time.

    I figure with a pocket holster I can carry it in anything with pockets, it won't break me up, it will be easily accessible, and it will be discreet.

    Well, I've probably bored everyone so I'll just start reading posts.

    I had a Mitch Rosen Pocket Softy for years, with a S&W 442 Airweight revolver. Loved it. It can take awhile to have one made, but it's worth it. Protects the gun perfectly. Stays in the pocket during the draw, every time. Is soft and comfortable. Doesn't "print", assuming your pants have plenty of space for a revolver-sized pocket holster.

    I've thought about getting a snubbie as a BUG. A pocket holster would be the safest way to go. Run a search I know it was discuss a couple of months ago. Sorry don't have a holster suggestion for one.
