    I carry a snub often the same way, except use an Uncle Mike's size 3 pocket holster. Very fast on the draw and the holster stays put in the waistband.

    I have several Clip draws on Pistols and Snubs. I haven't had to remove them for holsters either, if I watch what I buy.

    But most of the time I just stuff my tool in my trousers and go.:faint:

    One must be careful as there is a lot of negativity toward "Clipdraws" round these parts... Mostly by those who have never used them.:whistling::upeyes:[/QUOTE]

    Pics of said revolvers w/ clip draws, please?

    I have a WRB brand IWB holster and pocket holster. Both work great. Mexican carry always ends up sliding down the inside of my pants and coming to a rest on the top of the toe of my shoe. A good way to get some air if you plan to punt your pistol at an assailant!

    I use a Kramer IWB Clip for appendix carry a lot. Doesn't realy add any bulk and the gun stays put.

    I often carry a 642, usually in a Remora holster. I can either slip it into my right front pocket of my jeans, or shorts, or tucked in my belt for IWB. The nice thing with the Remora is that it stays put even without a clip or belt loop. When I do carry it in my belt, I usually appendix carry. You could also consider a Sneaky Pete but it is rather large for a j-frame snubbie. It looks like a dead giveaway that you are carrying, but for the few times I used it, NOT ONE PERSON has ever commented or asked me about this black "PDA looking holder" on my belt.

    I carry a 442 in the of hand front pocket and a variety of other snubs AIWB. As for the Sneaky Peat, with all the stuff people carry on the belt, I don't see people questioning it. I would just have answers prepared if asked.

    Just posted this on on the "New 442" post a bit ago.

    Picked up a DeSantis Clip Grip for S&W J-Frame from Amazon, under $24, easy to put on the pistol.

    Works great with jeans, sweats... in my waistband, with the grip haning out of my pocket... We are becoming very good friends, and still have my boys in good shape...

    What's not to like?

    Looked at the ClipDraw, didn't like how it attached to the snubby, so hunted down the "replace the grip" solution instead.

    I can't tell from the picture; does this go on the grip or replace the grip? I have a Crimson Trace laser grip on my 642 and would not want to give up the laser.

    I second the DeSantis Grip Draw. Very easy to use in summer with cargo shorts. Also have the original Barami Hip grip, lost the nut off the handle. (in parts box now.) Same design/purpose.

    Have bunch of holsters, Bianchi makes a Professional Model in leather(clip on) with a sweat shield used often. When my 442 has the DeSantis Grip, can still be carried in the IWB Bianchi rig.
    Other option is a Pachmayr Concealed grip. Mexican carry up till the rubber grips hit the belt or waistband.

    Only issue is the use of walking shorts(no belt). The waist string gets a little hinky with Mexican carry. My carry is like 3:30-4:00 position. Don't dig the appendix thing for obvious reason, and getting up or down, moves the gun around.
    Good luck on your choice to or not.

    I sometimes mexican carry my 642. My pocket carry gun is a 638 with Boot grips and my 642 wears Pachmayr Compacs. I carry the 642 at 4:00 with the butt forward and the belt riding between the grips and the cylinder. Years ago as a rookie cop with little money and a lousey selection of holsters I carried my bobbed M-60 the same way. Never lost it, never came loose.

    Does it count as Mexican carry if in a Remora holster stuck into the waistband?

    My opinion, No. Mexican carry is basically shoving it in your waistband with no holster.

    even though I am very old, I would still be willing to carry Selena Gomez that way.

    try a better holster. there are a lot of them that are damn comfy!

    I've been tempted to just pocket carry without a holster, especially when I own several good holsters then I add a laser and now the gun doesn't fit into any of them. Until I get yet another holster I might consider Mexican carry, but not too seriously.
