It seems like such a great solution; drop your carry gun into a pocket and venture out. What could be simpler? Pocket carry is a good way to conceal a handgun, but like many things it comes with advantages and disadvantages. So, before using pocket carry, take time to think through what is and isn’t for you.

In my opinion (and my opinion alone) I think pocket carry works best for exterior garments, especially in cold weather. Many believe cold weather is the time for large handguns, as heavier garments make carrying such weapons easier; but does it make them more accessible? If the weather is bitterly cold and the wind and snow are blowing, is your coat open in the front for quicker access? If not, maybe a gun in the coat pocket would be more accessible. Something to think about.

The Galco pocket rig easily conceals the Ruger LCP in a jeans pocket. With any pocket pistol/holster combo, it’s imperative to practice.

However, maintaining complete control of the weapon is paramount, as it will be concealed in any piece of exterior clothing you might remove.
