I've posted this many times on GT in the past.I have been carrying a S&W model 38 in my pocket for about a month. You need a deep pocket to cover the whole gun. Even my airweight is heavy in my pocket and weights down my pants a bit on that side. The weight also swings when in a cargo pocket which takes some getting use to. With that said I can't image carrying my 27 in my pocket. I think I will stick with my IWB and belt holster.
Yes. The shoulder holster was the impractical way to go. The pocket is a great alternative to something like Galco's "Summer Comfort" holster. Rather than a holster, I go with a dedicated pocket. At 6'7" I am a pretty noticeable guy, but I have not had any problems with "Printing." Think about the reasons you would need to draw your weapon, and the acceptable motions thereafter. Reaching into your pocket is a natural and acceptable reaction to "Give me your wallet/money!," whereas reaching for a shoulder holster, belly band, ankle holster or most IWB's would not be an option that would give you a tactical advantage. As always, I would have to stress the importance of frequenting a range facility that allows you to practice shooting from the hip, and on the way to a full presentation (Or practice at home with your Crimson Trace pressure pad) but I would say that 90+% of the time I cc, it is in my front pocket.Hey guys i know this has been covered a hundred times over. I tried to search I got varying opinions though. So I want to know from you guys with a G27, "that actually carry in your pocket" is this a practical way to carry your 27?
