Pocket holster suggestions?

#1

Post by cmgee67 » Sat Jun 16, 2018 6:38 am

I’m looking for a good pocket holster suggestion. I have been looking at several including the desantis nemisis, galco, Mika and a couple of others. It will be for my J frame if that helps. I have used the nemisis holster before as well as a black hawk one. Both of those worked fine. I want more of a square profile

Most pocket holsters collapse without the gun in them, making safe reholstering difficult, if not impossible. Remora offers a reinforced top (RFT) that helps keep the empty holster open, facilitating one-handed reholstering.

That we carry is more important than how we carry. My wife takes issue with all forms of carrying except pocket carry. She carries her Walther PPS LE M2 in a Remora RTF her front pcket with the grip above the pocket, covered by her untucked shirt. Her draw is acceptable and she can, with care, reholster one-handed without muzzling herself.

I carry her former EDC, a Ruger LCR .38, in a Remora RFT in my left front pocket as backup for my openly carried S&W M&P M2.0 9mm 5inch.

i use a sticky for my 642, depending on your jean type the pockets may not be enough to fit the gun

Mika is the best. I carried a hammerless Taurus titanium .38 snubbie in my front pants pocket for 13 years, and no one ever noticed it. It was also super easy for a quick draw, and the holster always stayed put.

... I want more of a square profile ...

Mika offers a choice of square or rounded at the bottom.

Look no further than Alabama Holsters: https://www.alabamaholster.com/product- ... -holsters/.

I have two of their front pocket holsters, and they are way better than the Desantis Nemesis that I used to use. WAY better. One is for my snubbie, and I have another for my G43.
