    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.[​IMG]

    An Uncle Mike's pocket size 3 works for me.

    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.
