I do, in fact, "carry". Not all the time and not every place, and some places such as churches and government buildings, it is not permitted (I can only suppose that is so that we don't start shooting lawyers). All the political arguments aside, there are some practical considerations involved when you decide to place a concealed weapon on your body. First, it must be accessible. Second, it must be concealed (duh!). Third, it must be comfortable.
For me, a pocket carry is just fine, either my clothing or jacket, etc. I looked around and found several cheap designs and tried them, but they all came up short. Either they would wear out quickly, slide around in my pocket, or cause difficulty in getting the firearm out of the pocket. None of these is desirable.
|Mikas Holster and my .38 Smith and Wesson|
After wearing the holster several days, I appreciate the way it is stable in the pocket and, if the gun is drawn, the gun comes out and the holster does not. Robert told me the holster is manufactured such that it is also easy to get the gun BACK IN the holster- not a feature on most pocket holsters.
All in all, I do like the holster. The cost is moderate, under $30 and I think the quality is excellent. Occasionally, I leave the gun in my locked vehicle, and it would be nice if there were a removable strap to secure the gun while not on the body. I'm sure he could make one, if asked.
