Pocket carry

Is this the best idea or the worst idea? I have to wear a tucked in shirt to work, pretty much every day And I don’t always wear my jacket… Is there any other option I’m not considering?

    Pocket carry is perfectly fine with a snubnose or a pistol with a purpose-built holster

    I also keep my shirts tucked almost always and pocket carry an LCP max in a vedder pocket locker every day, it works great for me. If you end up getting the vedder, be sure to get the optional thumb tab and curved hook, they make drawing without snags 10 times easier.

    let me ask you this: a pissed off, angry, distracted 6'2" misguided young adult is going through your truck toolbox while you are unloading. You kindly request that he stop, so he and his buddies (whoa are in a stolen, unmarked black honda full of looted goods from target) then come out and attack you with their fists, knives, and a realistic-looking bb gun from big 5. Are you going to sit there and accept permanent brain injuries that prevent you from working ever again, or are you going to pull a 5-rd pos taurus out of your pocket and waste them? and since you're in the oakland demilitarized zone, the county government is unwilling/unable to competently prosecute self-defense cases anyway, provided you take the 5th and wait for your attorney to talk for you

    ignore all the tacticool and armchair threads especially by anyone who doesn't work in an urban envioment. Speed x agility matters more than ft-pds or ammunition count. If you can reliably keep it hidden in your pocket, reliably pull it out quickly, and reliably hit their lungs, heart, jugular or kidneys you have everything you really need. More to the point, do you really think a dumb ass Black person can reliably pull out his modified (stolen) full-auto g34, with a $800 (stolen) aimpoint on it, with a modified (illegal) 35-round mag loaded with the "most powerful high grain" hi point ammo his buddy got him, and point it at you before you disable his entire central nervous system?

    my company has lost $20,000 in stolen items in oakland alone since the start of the year, with two broken fingers and a cracked orbital bone when they came at us. The police showed up, shrugged, and is not a crime in oakland right now. They don't come to our yard, because our yard guy is a depressed, alcoholic disabled mexican with a 20ga loaded with rubber bullets. 0 prosecution against him because it's legal now.

        I'm assuming OP lives in or near a major city and actually needs to carry a weapon because he is surrounded by people that want to do him harm, and isn't just carrying a gun to feel cool in his office cube.

          There's a wide spectrum of reasons to carry other than those two scenarios

            I carry to protect my daughter, my stupid b***h wife, and myself, in that order. BUT I also like to feel cool while doing it. Feeling like a dystopian cowboy makes me more motivated to put on the belt every day.
            As long as you’re training, is that so wrong?

        That's how most businesses in Oakland work now because there is 0 criminal prosecutions because the current attorney general doesn't believe in prosecuting. It'll remain this way until she is outsed in the special election called to remove her.

    I pocket carry a snubnose revolver all the time. It's easy and convenient, and I like revolvers.

    Plus, it's hot and humid most of the year, and I don't wear untucked shirts.

    I pocket carry a shield with a 7rd mag all day every day during the summer, I either carry it naked with and empty chamber or loaded in a very thin kydex holster. My draw and shoot time suffers with the former but I've gotten pretty used to it. I have tiny baby manlet hands though, YMMV

    Deep carry/pocket carry is by far the best option for people in blue states that restrict carry (ie unconstitutional horseshit) and pretty much every pocket gun falls within magazine/with restrictions meaning its legal to own anyway

    Finally going to buy an LCP. I know the max is more popular, but I just like the look, feel, and shape of the classic LCP. I’ll probably get one of those clips to attach to it too. It’ll be nice to be able to carry real sneaky. My compact pistols are great but still too bulky sometimes.

      The original is much better for pocket carry because of the trigger. While I haven't had the LCP, I have had it's predecessor, the (much cooler) keltec p32. It's better for this role and I highly recommend it over an LCP. Only problem I had though was anytime I tried to carry it on the waist. I prefer to AIWB carry my pocket guns when I can and because those guns are so flat, I found it to be impossible to consistently draw it with the clip. I eventually got a S&W 43c because the cylinder makes the grip jut out a bit and I can now draw much better from the belt with a clipdraw. The 43c is physically larger, but loaded up it's only an ounce heavier (alloy cylinder)than the p32 and they both hold 8 rds. I am looking into the hamre forge clip grips because they look a bit more stable than the clip grip but I will say this to everyone reading...Having a gun that can flex from pocket carry to belt carry without needing a holster is very nice, highly recommended, 10/10.

      Its a great choice anon, found one on sale for $125 at my LGS last year and had to pick it up. Been pocket carrying since and never looked back.

      I bought a Blackhawk size 2 pocket holster for like $20 that has just enough space to fit an additional 6 round mag into. A 7 round extended mag and waistband/belt clip are great additions.

        Very cool. I’d love to be able to just slide it into my waistband or burry in my bag at work. Would be a lot easier than my clunky 9 mil

    It's certainly the most convenient option, but pocket carry is not ideal.
    The most effective way to conceal a decent pistol would be to use the phlster enigma. You have to play with it to get it to work right but nothing else will really come close.
    If you must pocket carry, I advise to not worry about getting the most effective pistol but to focus on safety, because you can't see what's happening in your pocket. A striker fired gun should never be carried innapocket. Guys have shot themselves trying to remove the pistol from the pocket. They're doing everything right, removing the pistol with the holster, but the gun became separated from the holster in the pocket and caught the edge of the holster and discharged. The trigger is just too short and light.
    I also prefer revolvers for pocket carry because they have a more organic shape and they have less issues with lint and stuff. My favorite is the S&W 43c in 22lr and I even prefer a NAA PUG over something like an LCP or P32, even though those are fine choices.

    Pocket carrying in pants is a coin toss. You will almost always be printing since the holsters are thick and they don't fill in the shape of something square like a wallet. It will be immensely harder to draw while sitting down (i.e. in your car, at a restaurant, etc.) and it will be harder to draw in general. You will also be pointing the gun at the person sitting across from you if you are pocket carrying in the pants. Since pocket carrying is more likely to create negligent / accidental discharges, I'd recommend pocket carrying in leg pockets of cargo pants (easier to draw while sitting but you will still point it at those across from you) or jacket pockets (gun will always be pointed downwards but you will be stuck with a cross draw).

    I carry an lc9s in a pocket holster because I work in a medical office and often have to sit/stand and work with patients in a close fashion and can't risk my shirt riding up.
    How does /k feel about belly bands and the like? I think I'd be okay going down to an lcp or p32 if it was that much easier and more convenient.

      I used to carry a Makarov in a belly band when I worked at a vocational school and taught hands-on stuff where I was constantly lifting my arms overhead. Just don't wear skinny jeans and practice your draw a LOT. Obviously it's slower than a normal holster, but not by much and sure beats being unarmed.

        the other thing is larger guns have less recoil than smaller ones if the caliber is the same.
        its amazing how many no guns think smaller gun is less threatening and easier to use and naturally want to pick that.

        Thanks I might buy the Ruger MK.4 soon.

    The deep concealment Urban Carry is what I use.
    To me it's the perfect blue collar holster since I need one where the pistol will not possibly drop out even when I'm working on my side/back/knees, but I can draw it asap.
    And one that's nearly impossible to tell I'm carrying.
    It's obviously not a quick draw, but I'm not pretending to be Doc Holliday.

      The passive aggressive dig at people with normal holsters you had to make at the end of your series of justifications for this shit holster indicate you don't actually have faith in it and you're looking for reassurance.

      Well I reassure you, the holster is shit.
