    Thumbs up

    I always carry my Kel-Tec P32 in my weak side pocket and whenever I can, my FiveseveN on my strong side hip.

    Gun wallets are illigal to use. PerBATF your not allowed to stor/carry your gun in something that will allow it to function without taking it out. That is a very general description of the law.
    It was intended to keeppeople from using those briefcase holsters that fired the gun from the inside of the case. It was a toy used for MAC and Uzi autos.
    There must have been a rash of shootings to cause the ruling. It was probably similar to the huge number of drive by bayonettings the Clintons stopped.

    I thought he was talking about a holster like this one.

    I voted heavy caliber (.45ACP) IWB.
    My everyday carry is a Colt CCO in a Milt Sparks Versa MaxII.
    On occasion, I will carry a Kahr PM9 in a Galco pocket holster if a tucked in shirt and ties is required dress.

    On a road trip, I carry an STI Tactical in a cross draw holster. With a 140mm magazine, that gives me 19+1 rounds of 147.gr TAP.

    OK, Thats a pocket holster. I was refering to a "wallet Holster" You take the gun out of the pocket holster, you actually remove holster and gun with a wallet holster.

    Old Padawan. I must admit that I didn't acually see what he was talking about. He mearly opened his pocket for me to see, but he didn't remove it from his pocket for an inspection. Maybe he just used the wrong term.
    He did use the word "wallet".

    Depends on circumstances, but usually in a fanny pack. Laugh all you want...I carry some large guns in there, as well as usually a smaller BUG in my offside pocket, again, if the circumstances dictate.
    I DON'T ever carry a black leather fanny pack, but a brown nylon "tourist" type thing for my really large guns (5" Model 29 .44 mag, full size 1911, HiPower's, lately a 59 series S&W 15 shot with spare mag).

    I also have several other packs with Adidas,etc. "sporty" logos that serve for smaller guns (2 1/2" Model 19, Chief Special)
    I have been "made" twice in over 10 years of carry in the pouch.
    Sometimes carry the Chief Special in a Milt Sparks IWB, sometimes in a pocket.

    I never carry a small gun only...smallest is a .38 special...and always with at least one reload.
    ( I'm kind of on the edge of going with more autos and selling some of my old Smith revolvers. I feel like I'm moving into the Twentieth Century after it's already over.)
    Thanks.

He plays Bass, so he stands while working. He disguises it with a piece of paper sticking above it, so that it looks like an over-stuffed wallet.
    We work mostly in Pinellas, and Manatee Counties.
    Bassist with an overstuffed wallet. That's an obvious ruse. J/K. I carry IWB a Kimber Ultra Compact Stainless or a Taurus .357 J frame rip off. I had a guitar player buddy in Atlanta that used to keep a .38 stuck to the magnet in the back of a Fender amp. It had a slat of wood that covered it nicely.

    During the summer, if I'm in shorts I will carry a Seecamp in an Uncle Mike's clip-on IWB, or a Hume belt holster if I'm in jeans. I will occasionally use a Hume pocket holster or a Galco push-up IWB when in dress slacks.

    During the winter, I will carry a Glock 26 in a Hume JIT belt holster. For quick and short outings I will sometimes just stick the 26 into an Uncle Mike's IWB, which is a very comfortable holster that works quite well. I also just purchased a Null shoulder holster to be used if I will be in the car for a long time, but I've yet to use it. I also have a S&W 442 that I will just drop in a jacket pocket when I'm out for short trips.

    The Don Hume JIT doesn't have a retention strap, but it does hold onto the weapon quite well. You can turn cartwheels with the weapon holstered, and it won't fall out. The UM IWB's work very well, and are the most comfortable IWB's I've tried so far. The side against the body is higher, which keeps the metal off of the skin. Supposedly the material has a sweat barrier as well. Of course they won't last as long as a leather or hard plastic holster, but they cost a lot less, and serve the purpose of occasional light use quite well.

    <----Newbie here!

    I have a Baby Eagle in .40, but I'd like something a little smaller and lighter to carry, and am particularly interested in revolvers (not exclusively). I haven't really experimented with any carrying styles, since I don't have a CHL or the disposable income to buy multiple holsters, but I'm pretty sure that a pocket carry or IWB would fit best with my day to day routine. Any advice on firearms suitable for me?

    Thanks, and Gig 'em!

    Trent

    Here's my "short" answer (opinion) : Short bbl (3 in or less), Stainless steel (easier maintenance), 6 shot, .357 magnum.
    I researched untill I was dizzy, well dizzier. For my "first ever" gun, I bought a used Dan Wesson. It's stainless, .357 mag, with 2 1/2 in bbl. I mostly shoot .38 specials, but keep Cor-Bon .357s in it.
    I chose the calber for it's versatilty.
    Check the Revolver thread for better educated and experienced opinions, but I think you'll find that the consensis about the same as my post. This is not a pocket gun.
    You need to factor in your situation(s) to find what best suits your needs.
    If you decide to purchase a used revo, memorize this link. I keep it in my Favorite List.

    Good luck. Have fun.

    For the past five or six years, it has been the Walther P99 in 9mm or 40SW (depending on my preference that day) in an IWB or leather OWB. Many days at my former employment, I would wear a leather shoulder holster.

    I carry a Kahr P40, Walther P99c 9mm, or SW99 .40, depending on cover garments. Always OWB, usually leather belt slide, occasionally kydex paddle. On the hottest and/or most casual of days (maybe 15 days a year) I carry a Keltec P3AT in a front pocket.

    I also make it a point to carry a knife everyday, something I only started doing when I started to conceal carry.

    Does the circumstances you're carrying in dictate what you pack? For instance, if you're out and about on private land, are you carrying openly with a belt or shoulder holster?

    Work dictate how you carry?

    Just curious. There's options here.
    In summer weather I carry a SP101 in a Don Hume IWB. In the fall,winter I carry a Kimber Tac II Custom in a Kirkland IWB.
