Holster choices for S&W 442

Probably gona pocket carry. I've heard good things about Mika...anything else I should consider?

I like Uncle Mike's # 4. It is a little larger and stays in the bigger pockets better.

I have a Mika and it works great. I also use a Cell Pal when I don't want to give up a pocket. Then there's the 5.11 Holster Shirts that work well, too.

I have a Mika and a Galco horsehide,I used the Mika for a long time but eventually got tired of having to fish around in the sofa cushions looking for my snubbie after a little catnap.

I like the Galco a little better since it hangs onto the revolver a little better yet still allows for a smooth easy draw and just feels more stable in my pocket.

I usually wear pretty loose pants

Since I recieved this Alessi IWB holster in this photo a couple of years ago I rarely PC anymore,I can clip this thing IWB AP 3:00 5:00 or anywhere else I want no belt required.The Snubbie Club

I've used all the holsters mentioned above except for the Cell Pal and 5.11. I like all of them. But I mostly carry in the Galco horsehide holster if the pocket will accommodate. If the pocket is small I use the Uncle Mike's (I go with the #3).

I really like my Kramer Pocket holster. HATED the Mike's #3 pocket holster.

J-frames are so light, putting them on a belt holster makes them almost disappear weight wise.

Comp-tac CTAC is very, very easy to conceal with the velcro clips. Shirts just tuck in nicely over the gun & holster.

My favorites are my Kramer and my Safariland. Only thing I have a hard time wrapping my head around is that one is the most exspensive and the other is the cheapest holster I have for my 642 and I like them both equally. Whish I would have bought the Safariland first.

Mike Meredith at Pocket Concealment Systems makes a variety of pocket holsters. Mine is well made and designed. The part that faces the outside of your pocket is flat, showing no gun outline.

I use and recommend the Galco pocket horsehide. It holds up well and stays in the pocket presenting the gun.

A good holster should provide effective primary retention and protect the trigger from inadvertent activation. The horsehide Kramer Pocket Holster does that.

Some other makers rely upon gravity alone to keep the handgun in their pocket holster. Some other makers claim to make pocket holsters that stay in the pocket - and stay in place in the pocket - through the use of materials that do not easily slide within the pocket.
Sounds good, right? Well...it don't work.

The number one priority is to ensure that the trigger is protected, no matter what, and the Kramer does that.

I have a pocket holster for my 442 and I really love it. I bought it at a gun show in Charlotte, from the fellow who owns Wild Bill's Concealment. Link

The one I use is:

Level 10
Pocket carry
Pocket Packer
Can be used in either right or left front pocket

I've had mine for years and it has never given me the first problem and it has always been comfortable.

I stopped pocket carrying some time back. I read somewhere pocket carrying a snub being described as being similar to carrying an orange in your pocket. Well, I can't say that analogy is either accurate or inaccurate as it depends on the size of the pocket, material, size of wearer, size of orange(s) (levity injected here), etc...

My main reason for no longer pocket carrying is that I do prefer lighter material clothing and also already carry enough **** in my pockets already....and just ain't the tacticool kinda guy...being that Iam fairly athletic and don't favor the dunlop concealment method I find that for standard day to day carry the Clipdraw works just fine for my 442. If engaging in more active endeavors, I slide it into my cheapo reproduction of the SmartCarry (gonna pony up for a real one here soon, tho)...

+1 for a Mika pocket holster, and he signs your name, etc. inside (or at least he used to..)!
