CCW Breakaway Holster Pants
So you carry your firearm with you in the world for protection. Everywhere you go people are safer because you are there. Odds are you either have it in a waistband holster, inside or outside, or concealed by a shirt, vest, or other item of clothing. If not then you have it in an ankle holster or pocket. Having your firearm just sitting in a pants or coat pocket is unreliable and even dangerous; you are setting yourself up for the Monkey Trap. The Monkey Trap where you reach into your pants pocket, then fish for a grip on your pistol, and struggle to pull what is now a fist holding a lump of metal, from this pocket. In addition, a handgun unsecured is a handgun lost, as it floats around, flips, spins, and can even become dangerous. It is more than possible that you can accidentally fire the weapon while playing pocket pool for it, it has actually happened.
The CCW Breakaway Pants
One company has worked on this problem of eliminating waistband and ankle holsters while making your pockets weapon friendly: CCW Breakaway. The company has designed a line of clothing that turns your pants into holsters. The top edge of the pocket is actually a flap that is designed to break away (hence the name of the product). Its gathered at the waistband by two unseen snaps that, when pulled open, allow fast and easy access to the pocket. The second feature of the system is that deep inside that pocket is an adjustable fabric holster that securely holds your handgun in a correct position until needed. CCW refers to this as the Trigger Gun Shield or TGS and it is designed to both keep the fabric from bunching over the firearm and to dissipate and smooth the outline of the frame, to keep it from being a situation of "is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
In tests on the manufacturer’s website, a firearm can be deployed and presented from either a seated or a standing position in less than 1-second.
This design allows for one-handed operation and lightning fast deployment. Since the firearm is completely concealed without a visible clip, buckle, holster, or bulge, the pants can be worn with your shirt tucked, and without the need for an obvious vest, jacket, or warm-up thrown over it. CCW Breakaways makes the pants in khakis, jeans, shorts, and cargo pants, all of which stay away from the 'tactical' look that can be dangerous in an off duty or gray-man lifestyle. I love 511 tactical pants but every time I wear them, no matter what with, at least one person will ask me loudly and in public "What department are you with?" Thankfully, the CCWs do not have labels.
One interesting aspect of the pants is that they come with a universal holster in both the left and right hand side area. The attached holsters are adjustable by means of several strips of Velcro from subcompact to large frame models of a wide variety. The layout enables just about anything you are comfortable with, providing of course you have enough of a waist and leg underneath your pants to hold the firearm. The firearm is carried below the hip-line-of-flexure and on the thigh's inside radius - where there is a natural cavity. The larger the cavity you have of course means the larger the firearm you can carry (which is good news for big guys who want to tote a M1911) The pants are made to your measurements so scratching your head and wishing that you can fit into something off the rack is not an issue with the CCW Breakaways.
However, it should be noted that with the nature of blue jean denim's unforgiving qualities, larger firearms do not work as well as in the cargo pants.
If you are looking for something different, and hate having to find a holster for every occasion, there is always buying a new wardrobe with holsters built in.
