Pocket carry, manual safety, no holster

I'm thinking of carrying my Ruger security 9 with the safety on in my utility kilt pocket. I don't have a pocket holster large enough. I could easily get one, but do I really need to? The geometry of the pocket will keep it from rotating. I plan to dedicate one pocket to the gun and put nothing else in there.
It seems to me this is a legitimate way to carry, but I'm wondering if there's a downside I didn't think of.
>Crap gun
It was my first purchase and the only one I have with a manual safety. I already own it and can shoot it.

Also, does the colors of this kilt remind you of anyone? I don't have this model, but I'm thinking of getting it.

    People tuck guns loosely into their waistband all the time without holsters and without using safeties. Roll the dice if you want. I wouldn't personally but I also adhere to reddit finger for safety so maybe I'm a big pussy.

    I would have the trigger covered at a minimum. I would be worried about something hitting my groin and the moons are aligned just right to have the object pull your trigger through the fabric.
    There are many holsters now that do just that.

      Yeah but the security 9 isn't a popular model for a kydex trigger cover. I could get a Glock 17 sized generic pocket holster, but I was going to do this tomorrow.
      It's under the apron so there's 3 layers over it.
      I might do it anyway. I was carrying my 380 in the sporran of my trad kilt, but the pockets on this thing are huge.

    >utility kilt
    You're going to look like a huge moron wearing one. It's genuinely a smarter idea to purchase a real kilt and wear that than buy one of these gimmicky things.

      This one looks nice. It's genuine utilikilt and not a paki special. I don't want a sporran bumping my dick while hiking.

      I don't have the 2 tone one pictured. I want to get it tho because the colors remind me of someone.

          Yeah, cadians have the same colors.
          They look really good together. That's probably why it's on so many of those vintage hunting jackets.

      I didn't have to mention it, but including the kilt keeps the thread bumped.

          Clever. NTA, actually homosexual OP here. I'm actually going to wear underwear because ticks and shit like that.

          Getting back on topic, I could just take my 380, but I'd rather have 9 for the woods, and since it gets it's own big ass pocket, it's a waste not to bring the bigger one.

            Big mistake bro. Ticks like to get in snug places so unders make it more likely you will get one.
            I know this because went camping with a couple of bros one time and wore snug unders. Day 2 went off to shit and when I got in position wouldn't you know it? Tick on the end of my dick.
            Of course I screamed which my bros took to be a Wendigo so they deployed all of our Wendigo countermeasures so we ended up having to pack up and go home.

    I bought one of these ~10 years ago and immediately thought to myself "Why the frick did I buy this?"
    it never got worn, I have it to my buddy who also never wore it, and it probably got donated to goodwill.

    that skirt goes kind of nuts. if we lived in a period where kilts were still acceptable for men to wear, i'd want to rock it.

      I wore it today. No one noticed.

      That kinda sucks you wasted your money. Hope it was a cheap knock off.

      hey hi
      thank you for asking
      i've been pocket carrying a springfield hellcat with a manual safety without a holster every business day for the last 3+ years in cheap office slacks and my experience doing so has been so positive that i've been meaning to write a thread or two to inform others about how great it is
      this thread is a good chance to put my thoughts together so feel free to ask questions
      tldr: the only hazard of pocket carrying is that cosmetically-ugly-but-anecdotally (t. my experiences)-harmless lint gets on your gun and any optics that are attached (not sure if that matters for you)
      just make sure that the material that your carry pocket is made out of is soft enough to not somehow disengage the manual safety and pull the trigger on your carry gun catastrophically (somehow) and you'll arguably be safer than if you were appendix carrying

      I don't imagine lint will be a problem. The only potential issue I had was kilt related. The pocket is inside and I have to lift it up along with the rest of the front to take a piss. Theoretically it could fall out doing that, but it's unlikely given how much material there is.
      >Disengage the manual safety
      This is my real concern. The security 9 safety is pretty easy to disengage. Given the geometry of the pocket, it's unlikely but not impossible for material to get inside the trigger guard. If the safety was a little harder to release I'd feel better about it. This is a situation where I'd actually like a grip safety, but it's far cheaper to get a pocket holster or trigger guard than buy an XD or 1911 or something just for this.

      Ok that note, I'm really tempted to buy the NAA mini revolver that fits in a belt buckle and wear it to see if anyone notices, but it's made for a regular belt and not a 2"kilt belt.
      I honestly think no one would.

      >I don't want a sporran bumping my dick while hiking.
      Then you don't deserve to wear a kilt, frick off

      >Deserve
      Post your EDC gun and sporran Mr. MacGatekeeper. I probably wore a kilt longer today that you have in your whole life, unless you're actually Scottish, in which case, enjoy your plastic knife and sword pin, ya haggis!

    Just get a sticky holster to cover the trigger, I've been pocket carrying with one for years and can't recommend them enough.

      Thanks. I might get pic related for the other pocket to keep my flashlight from scratching my phone. That's for pointing them out.

    2 things about the Security 9
    *Despite being a "Glock clone", it's hammer fired, not striker
    *Manual safety on the slide
    I wouldn't worry about pocket carry if you don't tard it up.
