    I am looking at the Vedder Pocket holster for my G43. It is available with and without a curve design, I assume the flat design is for ambidextrous carry.

    For those who use a kydex pocket holster do you prefer a curved design or just plain flat.
    Opinions and feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I suggest checking out the holster made by the seller "jbowe" on ebay. Fantastic. $25 and no waiting

    I have the Vedder PocketLocker and I love it. Get it with the curve and the thumb tab. Avoid eBay if you can. They are running a campaign right now raising money for the Southern Poverty Law Center, ACLU and a bunch of other communist charities in order to fight President Trump.

    I too use the boraii for my G26/G27. I have three other pocket holsters but this is the most concealable. The flat-edged bottom of the holster actually makes it look like a large cell phone. Not for use with dress slacks, but jeans and 5.11's are great.

    PJholster is another option worth looking at. I use one for my pm9. Nothing going on with it that isn't happening with the others I suppose. There are colors and patterns available but I went plain black. Retention is just right for a pocket holster - enough to hold the gun upside down without dropping out, not so much that you can't get it out of your pocket. I only took this pic to emphasize the pm9's size for another thread, but the holster has the curve shape and there is a fold-down lip on the other side for pushing off the holster with the thumb during the draw.

    I use a Uncle Mike's Pocket holster for my Khar Pm9. Don't know what size number it is but the one they say it fits actually allowed the gun to sit too low in the holster to get a full grip that I prefer. Cut a sole from a flip flop and attatched with contact cement just above the stitching at the muzzel end. It allows the gun to ride higher in the pocket and still covers the trigger while keeping out pocket lent. The cordura nylon with their "tacky" treatment secures the holster on the draw and the slick interior does not grab the gun. Being clothe it will quickly curve to the gun and the contour of your leg. Adds padding to your leg and breaks up the gun outline better than kydex. They are still only about $15.00. Mine is 17 years old and with a damp clothe looks like new.
