Something About Pocket Carry you May Want to Consider
Pockets are dirty places. Maybe dirty is the wrong word, but full of debris is certainly accurate. Your pocket is only a place for guns that are reliable when they are dirty. That is the reason I carry a revolver in my pocket. Even with only a weeks worth of wear, my wheel gun is a lint fest. There is so much crud on my gun that I try to make sure that I clean it once a week. If you aren’t up for the additional maintenance that a pocket gun requires, then pocket carry might not be for you!
