CCW S&W 642 - IWB or Pocket carry?
 
Hi I just bought my first revolver - a Smith Wesson 642 stainless. What's the best way of carrying it - IWB or pocket carry/

Can you recommend some decent holster for each? FYI, I'm using a Milt-Spark VM 2 to carry my HK P7PSP semiauto. Not sure if Milt offers decent IWB and Pocket holstesr for the SW642.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I carried a Model 442 for awhile, using a Galco belt holster. This was a good holster, but I preferred something a little bigger in caliber than the 442.

I don't like either pocket carry or inside the waistband carry.

I went to a S&W Model 19 for awhile, but now carry a Ruger Blackhawk in .44 Special.

For me, it depends on the time of year. If it's long pants and jacket weather, I carry my Bodyguard .38spl in a DeSantis belt holster. Shorts & t-shirt, a Tuff Products pocket holster. I've got a Galco IWB, but don't wear it much. Not crazy about IWB.

Summertime I carry my 642 IWB in the winter I pocket carry in a coat pocket.

Remora, hard to beat for comfort, versatility and cost!

You can carry your Smith both IWB and pocket with the Remora.
