Default ....or are you just happy to see me?

is that a gun in your pocket?

pocket carry.....help me out. I know this has probably been asked a time or two, so if this question annoys you, just disregard.

are there any brands of pants/shorts that lend themselves to pocket carry?

deep wide pockets are a must, I like my shorts/jeans loose....so no problems there.....and untucked shirts are normal for me if i'm dressing casually . some of my jeans work OK, but I was wondering if any brand/style would lend itself to being more pocket carry friendly?...

suggestions or alternatives welcome.....

thanks

I just bought 3 pairs of Wrangler cargo pants, the type with the included woven cotton belt, and the three pockets on the left leg (bottom long pocket is perfect as a mag holder) @ Wallyworld for $22/pair. They have deep, wide pockets that easily accommodate my LC9 in a Desantis Nemesis holster. They are very comfortable, to boot!

thanks, good info. back in the day, they used to make levi's silver tab jeans, which had HUGE pockets and were nice loose fitting jeans and shorts, I think they quit making them a few years back though.

pretty much any blue jeans pockets will easily carry a lcp with enough room for a reasonable draw

Cargo pants/shorts seem to be designed for loose fitting and a little sloppy - and the pockets seem to have a lot of fabric therefore a bulge isn't noticed much.

It may depend on what gun you want to pocket carry too.

One member posted that he wore an ankle/calf holster and cut out the bottom of the pocket so he had top access to his gun.

but if ya dont have an lcp?

i intend to carry a small j frame snub. this revolver is small, but a bit wider than an lcp. one day i may be looking at the lcp or something similar. for now, i'll use what i got. and honestly, at this point, i feel most comfortable with carrying a revolver.

These work great for pocket carry.
