Back support side for my wallet. It is pretty small and thin, so I cant feel it when sitting. Also, not worried about reaching back during a LEO interaction. Id just say "sure thing, let me grab it, its back in my left back pocket". Wouldnt be a problem. Keys usually in my right front pocket unless Im carrying a speed strip, then they go in front left with my cell phone. They are pretty minimalist as well.
I dont put anything in cargo pockets because... I dont have cargo pockets. Im 31 and looking for a wife. Id have a better chance picking up a woman wearing a banana suit over pants/shorts with cargo pockets. Nothing but respect for all the older guys who already have locked a lady down and hit the retirement years where everything is always about comfort and utility. Unfortunately, it isnt like that at my age.
I moved to a front pocket wallet some years ago. I found out that rear carry was contributing to back problems d/t "but brick syndrome". Left front. Strong side is a key wallet and knife, or a gun, in which case key wallet and knife move elsewhere.
Front pocket carry is better defence against pick pocketing too.
What are these cargo pants everyone talks about? :blink:
I wear carpenter pants (the only kind of pants I own) because I wore carpenter pants for 25 years working as a crane operator/form builder.
I used to put my wallet in my right rear pocket but my hamstring started hurting so I changed it to the left rear about 30 years ago and never went back.
I don't carry money in my wallet, never have. Paper money is loosely folded twice and fingernail clippers are put the support (left) side front pocket, change in the strong side front pocket along with car keys and a folding Kershaw. On the rare occasion I go to a crowded area I move my wallet to the front right pocket. I generally walk with at least one set of four fingers in a pocket with the thumb outside the pocket. Odd, I know.
When I was a teen, my father's friend told me that it's too easy to get your wallet stolen from your back pocket. I didn't listen, but a woman I worked with and respected told me many years later that men should not wear their wallet in a back pocket because it can cause back problems. I am ambidextrous and carry both left- and right-handed, so it really depends on how I am dressed and my method of carry that day. For example, if I am carrying right-sided my wallet goes in my left front pocket. If I am carrying left-handed, it's the opposite. I've heard people say they prefer to carry one method only so that they know where there pistol is. The only pistol I carry my Ruger LCP II that way in my right-front pocket, but my other carry guns which I carry more often are large enough that I don't forget where they are (e.g. SIG P229).
Left front pocket for me. I carried left rear pocket for most of my life until two or three years ago. I was having to see a chiro for a period of time, and he highly suggested getting rid of the rear pocket carry.
This is inspired by the "homeower vs. BLM" thread also running, but not limited to that exact scenario. This is a hypothetical, so the idea of "I would never get in that situation" doesn't apply. For whatever reason, you are in this situation. And yes, I know, there is never enough information...
This actually happened here in our neighborhood a few nights ago.
A man, his wife, and two children were taking a walk after dark. They had all the necessary safety items: dayglow vests, flashlights etc. They were walking next to the curb. This is a pretty normal activity around here.
Right off, I'm not a Nazi, and I don't sympathize with Nazi beliefs or any of the stuff that goes along with those guys. But, I am curious about some of the legal aspects of today's shooting in Oklahoma - a female at a party across the street, allegedly on a dare, attempted to steal one of a...
I've been fighting a low level chest infection for the past couple of days. Low grade fever, feeling generally achy, and pretty much like crap overall. I needed to go downtown with our utility trailer to pick up the side-by-side I use for hunting, as a major service had just been done, since...
Occassionally I say something unpopular and unleash the wrath of the internet. Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration, but on this topic my opinion is 180 degrees out from conventional wisdom often enough. I've said it before, and will say it again: shooting through a barrier to hit an active lethal...
