When you move it to the back pocket for restaurants, what do you do with your wallet? If your keys go in the weak side front, what do you do with your coins? I'm also going to assume here, that you use one of those very thin wallets of some sort. Could you give me specifics on it as well? Thanks.
    Im not the OP, but I can tell you how I handle this.

    My keys are on a D-ring clipped to a belt loop. My wallet is carried in the offside front pocket (left), along with a small flashlight.
    Rear left contains spare mags.

    If, I felt the need for quick access in a restaurant, which is rarely, the gun is discreetly removed from my right pocket and placed under my left leg.

    I've got quite a few pairs of Wrangler relaxed jeans from Walmart that I still have. ( Before I stopped shopping Walmart)

    I'm gonna have to find something else when it comes time to buy some more because Wrangler changed the pockets on their jeans. They are much smaller now. I'm gonna try Carhartt and Duluth when the time comes. I like lightweight denim because I live in south Texas and I wear jeans year round. So I don't know. I'm thinking Carhartts will be be heavy denim unfortunately.

    I turned a couple of other guys here onto the Recluse and they also love them. Maybe they'll chime in.
    Yeah, yancy turned me on to the Recluse wallet holster. It's awesome for complete deep conceal, comfortable, and the draw is easy and effective. The more mine gets worn, the better it gets. I only use it once or twice a week when I'm working in a NPE.
    I had my wife stare at it while I was bending, turning, look down from above, etc. and she cannot tell I am carrying whatsoever.

    Check out Blue Mountain jeans. They aren't as deep as Carhartt but definitely deeper than Wrangler. Do you have a Tractor Supply around where you live? Take a gun with you as you try on the jeans in the dressing room. They also aren't real heavy.

    Blue Mountain jeans are what I was wearing in the first two pictures of this thread with the Springfield XDs .45 and Kimber K6s revolver.

    Thanks 71yancy! Ya, we have a Tractor Supply, it's where I buy Gunner's dog food. I'll check out those Blue Mountain jeans next time I go.

    There's also a Duluth Trading store in Katy (Tx) I plan on checking out in the very near future.

    You can also try on the different styles of Carhartt jeans because they're also sold at Tractor Supply.

    Let me know about the Duluth jeans because I've never had a chance to check them out. The more the merrier.

    Maybe Gunner would like some new Doggie treats or toy in the meantime.

    HaHa! Gunner doesn't play well with toys. I haven't been able to find one he doesn't eat/destroy. Even those big rubber ones they say are "nearly indestructible" dont last but a day or two.

    I got tired of spending all that money on them, so now he just gets my plastic Pepsi bottles when I'm done with them. He's just as happy with one of those as he is with a $20 toy from Petsmart. Lol.

    If that's his picture on your posts, he looks like some of the Police dogs competing on the TV show each week..."TOP DOG". My wife and I are addicted to it and can't wait for the next one. They are so smart and well trained it's amazing.

    I can't speak for their jeans because I almost always wear cargo pants, but I can say this: the Wrangler cargo pants from Walmart are VERY inconsistent. One pair will have really deep pockets and the next will be so shallow that my keys will barely fit. They'll also have different styles where one pair's cargo pockets are pleated and the next pair isn't, etc.... Sizing has the same problem, where you can buy three with the exact same size stamped on them, and one will fit correctly, one will be at least a size too small, and one will be so loose it practically falls down.

    I'm not sure if it's just inconsistency from Wrangler or if Walmart buys 20 different models of pants.

    Duluth Duluthflex standard fit cargos for me. Best pants I've ever had. Haven't worn a pair of jeans in 3 years.

    That might explain it. A couple of years ago, I went to Walmart and bought a couple of pairs. First time I wore them, I found the pockets to be about 20% smaller in both pairs. Took em back immediately. Haven't tried any since.
