Or the inability and or stubbornness to walk the most direct line to be the most efficient at the task at hand! Like I say I pocket carry on accessions, usually cause I'm to lazy or strapped for time to strap on my IWB Holster, never cause I feel it's the most efficient way. But that's me!

I also believe that if a person chooses to carry one way, he needs to train in that method to the point that drawing and re-holstering his gun is muscle memory.

He should never feel a carry method that he chooses to employ is less efficient, and certainly shouldn't ever carry in a method he isn't completely comfortable with for the sake of convenience.

No offense, but if I were you, I'd consider either not pocket carrying anymore or spending a fair amount of time turning everything associated with it into muscle memory.

Lol thinks for the advise! I'm comfortable with how I choose to carry daily! Very few things in life are a tie and the way we choose to holster our weapons is no exceptions to this rule! But half the argument is won on what we believe in. So I'm not here to discourage people from what they believe in! Just giving my opinion. Be well, and thanks for your opinion.

Not negotiable, negligible. As in tenths of a second. The clock doesn't lie.

Tenths of a second can be the difference in life or death in a gun fight. Can we both agree to that? If so, my point is valid and not worth discussing anymore.

I hardly ever pocket carry. I do it only during hot weather and I'm wearing only one shirt and there is a possibility of printing and/or I don't want the firearm up against my bare back...BUT when I do (instead of 4:30 on the waist) it's the same pistol (a Radom P64 in 9x18 Makrov http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-64_(pistol) .... and the same holster (Ace Case ambidextrous http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/ZAA-797 )
....and before THAT can of worms gets opened again...Yes, I bought it from CTD... NO, I bought it before the last panic & their company's price gouging... and Yes, it will be the LAST thing I ever order from them.

The element of SURPRISE is far more important than the 1/10 of second or as far as that goes several seconds you were discussing in a lethal confrontation!!!

I pocket carry my G26 in Galco horsehide pocket holster. This works well for me with the right pants or shorts.

I guess I'll have to post a video. The difference isn't enough to matter.
