On Pocket Carry

with 4 comments

Well it seems like pocket carry is the gun blog discussion of the week. As a person who has a Ruger LCP and an accompanying pocket holster I want to chime in.

In my opinion pocket carry is a good idea, if it’s the only viable option. For instance here in Minnesota it gets damned cold which usually means we wear heavy winter gear. I wear a Swiss surplus wool greatcoat. Needless to say there is almost no chance of my getting to the .45 on my hip when out and about during the winter. What I can get at is the LCP in the front pocket of my coat.

Pocket holsters are not idea in my opinion, but it beats nothing by a long shot. I still prefer my .45 nestled in its Crossbreed SuperTuck on my hip. But I’d also prefer having a 12 gauge shotgun. Practicality often trumps the best options.
