    Looking for some recommendations for pocket carry. I'm leaning towards a wheel gun; just need some ideas of what I should be looking into.

    Thanks

    I carry a Kel-tec P3AT a lot of the time. I carry it in a Galco ankle holster; a pocket holster by pocketholsters.com; and have a Crossbreed microclip on order.

    For pocket carry I use a Kahr PM9 that works great for me. If I were to go the revolver route I'd likely get a S&W 642 or a 442 with laser grips.

    Im going tomorrow to (hopefully) pick up a Ruger LCP.... it just feels like such better quality than the Kel Tec, and not much more ($279 is what the lcp is gonna cost)... If I were going with a revolver, I would get the S&W 642 or the 442 as butcher 50 recommended... both quality revolvers, double action only, and shoot great

    I tried both the 642 and PM9 and the LCP won.
    It is lighter, smaller, and thinner than the other two..

    PM9 vs LCP

    [​IMG]

    The 642 and Kahr PM9 are fine handguns, but for pocket carry the LCP wins it......IMHO

    I carry mine in a High Noon Pocket Grabber..

    The finish started to wear so I had CCR finish it in CeraPlate (electroless nickel).

    S&W 642 in a DeSantis Nemesis for me.
    I carried a KelTec P32 for seven or eight years, then switched to the revolver.
    I shoot well with it, it is a simple manual of arms, and it does well either IWB or front pocket!

    What do most people think about the LCP vs the Kel-tec P3AT? The reason I'm looking more at a wheel gun is that from what I've heard semi-auto mouse guns tend to jam.

    The new mouse guns dont jam much anymore. I have a kahr P380 with 500 rounds no jams so far. I have a keltec with like 600 with 1 failure to extract from limp wristing. A wheel gun is hard to pocket carry.

    If I can Pocket Carry a G26, How hard is it to PC a Hammerless Bodyguard or a Judge? But I don't wear Tight Pants!

    Im 5'9 and about 175 and find it hard to pocket carry a j frame with regular jeans not to baggy not tight though. I guess you could in baggy khakis but not really in most my stuff. I guess if someone is really big they can i dont find it comfortable. I find a kahr PM9 size the max for comfortable pocket carry with most pants. again it really depends how large of a guy you are and how big your pants are. I mean i know a guy that IWB carried a DE50.

    I just noticed you said judge i dont think thats a good pocket gun what kind of clothes are you guys wearing.
