    Carrying P365 in pocket holster? It can be done.

    Yesterday, for my visit to the Utah State Capitol, I pocket carried my P365 in my Vedder pocket holster. Yes, carrying a weapon is legal in the state Capitol building here. No gun buster signs, no metal detectors, no wands, no searches, nada. I was actually kind of surprised at the lack of security. I left my video tripod in a long case that kind of looks like a bazooka, my video back pack, my jacket, and a sweatshirt in a corner outside one of the legislative meeting rooms for 45 minutes and nobody disturbed it. Utah Highway Patrol officers everywhere, but they were very mellow and I spoke with several different officers during the day. Not one of them asked me if I was carrying. But I digress.

    The organizer of the rally took kind of a different approach and asked everyone who attended the rally to carry concealed, which it appeared everyone respected. I carried my P365 while wearing 5.11 pants. You can see the way my outfit looked below. No sign of printing while standing still. Will this method of carry work with every type of pants on the market? Absolutely not. But it works with most of my wardrobe, including several different types of pants. Will it work with blue jeans? Nope.

    For me -- no Sticky on a striker-fired 5-6 lb. trigger pistol w/ no safety. Anywhere on my body. Everyone else can Stick 'em wherever they want to.
    My striker w/ no safety goes in a kydex pocket holster like G26Raven's.

    I have a Sticky for my XDS. Trust me, it would take a superhuman effort to pull the trigger through the holster.

    I have two Sticky holsters, Springer. I use one in the outside zippered pocket of my fishing vest sometimes, just not in pants pockets or stuck IWB. To each his own comfort level.

    Will it work with blue jeans? Nope.
    Maybe not some jeans, but I think it would work with relaxed fit jeans that are looser than others. I haven't tried my P365 in my jeans because I find the weight of a 1 lb. gun and heavier is uncomfortable when I walk. But I suspect there are some on this forum (and certainly on the Sig forum) that pocket carry a P365 with jeans. As with all things concealed carry, what works for some won't work for others.

    Yeah, carry methods are a very personal choice. There are people who swear by the Cell Pal/Hide-It Holster, or the SmartCarry, or ankle holsters, or the Urban Carry, etc...., yet these methods get a lot of flack on the forums. Conversely, I get annoyed with people who demand that everyone carry IWB in a holster that's as thick as a baseball glove.

    Been making a number of upscale pocket holsters for the P365. I keep all the exotic scraps and have some grab bags too. That throat accent makes great use of pieces I usually can't do anything with. These are 5 oz leather, lined. Not claiming they are ultra thin, but they are nice. Done a brown with ostrich knee, black with ostrich knee, and have some lizard I need to use too.

    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    Just got a Boraii pocket holster. Really like it. Adds zero thickness, impossible to pull trigger and easy to draw.

    You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

    Not in my jeans-I wear tall-slim. I would look like Barney Fife trying to draw from a pocket. Not a fan of baggy jeans.

    Not to mention even if you could pull the trigger alone, the XDs still wouldn't fire.

    It's what you get used to and train yourself to become more comfortable with heavier loaded guns in the pocket. I was the same way at around a pound. Now my high upper limit is 28-29 oz. as long as it doesn't bulge out like a cantaloupe in the pocket. Pants material, pockets, and the holster really matter along with the right dimensions of the gun itself.

    Same here. Weight-wise, I can tolerate anything shy of a Desert Eagle in the right front pocket but concealment is a whole different animal.

    I just don't find the weight to be an issue. But I think it's not only what you are used to carrying daily (Sig P229) but also how good a belt you have on. If the weight is supported by your belt, and it doesn't feel like your pants are falling off, I don't think it will be an issue.
