Default How many of you pocket carry?

I have to wear scrubs all day, so I really have no other options. Most of my scrubs have shallow pockets, so, on the days that I wear them, I carry a Ruger LCP II in a Ruger pocket holster. When I have on my deeper pocket scrubs, I carry a Sig P365 in a Sticky Holster. This works really well for me. I pocket carry all the time now, even when not wearing scrubs and feel naked without my pistol.

I typically wear cargo khaki pants to work and pocket carry a LCP in my cargo pocket.

Iím on crutches right now. So itís shorts and LCP with a knife clip. Iím really liking it. Easy to carry and get to.

Here. Dedicated thigh pocket for DB9. Nothing else goes into that pocket. However...Ive no mechanical safety and I am a walking jungle gym...so...I never have a round chambered. If I feel the need to chamber a round...Im in the wrong place and walking expediently away.

I've done it before, it's suboptimal but better than nothing.

Make sure you inspect and clean your gun and mag regularly. Pocket lint and spare chance can ruin your day!

90% of the time itís an LCP2 in an Alabama holsters front pocket holster. I also have a boraii for that gun that I switch out depending on the pants/shorts Iím wearing. I really like how small and light that set up is, so I carry it a lot. If I feel the need for more firepower I wear pants with bigger pockets and carry the sig 365 in a boraii. Once it cools off some, I plan on exploring some IWB and OWB options for the 365.

Sound advice here. I was surprised how much lint got in my gun after only a few days. Now I check it every time, before I stick it in my pocket. I also make sure not to carry anything else in that pocket. I will hang a knife on a clip in the same pocket, but it has to be small enough to not hinder my draw.

I don’t pocket carry but I have an lcpii that is appendix carry in a desanti holster. Really light weight and carries well. I run with it regularly and don’t have any issues. I like the holster because it holds and extra mag too

I used to cargo-short-carry a KelTec P3AT in my strong side front pocket ...until it was lost @ sea in the terrible boating accident.

I have never carried a handgun in my life, they come after me I will kungfu their arse, lol. Just kidding, just never felt the need, hell I don't even lock my doors half the time. If I ever did carry it would need to be very small, I don't even carry a pocket knife.
