These have sort of relegated my Glock 26 to the safe for now.


March 9, 2010, 11:25 PM
hey patsue, i hate you! show off.... LOL! someday i will get my hands on a 442.

March 9, 2010, 11:37 PM
In my pocket? Lint.

OTOH I have a Maxpedition Jumbo EDC that's full to the gills.

S&W Model 64 plus two speed loaders. In Wisconsin, CC is a class A Misdemeanor however unloaded in a zippered case is legal... so I may add a third speed loader to keep the round count up.
The HKS's hold Buffalo Bore 158 gr. LSWCHP-GC +P rounds.
CRKT Crawford Kershaw folder - it's got a thumb flipper. That's enough.
Mini-mag flashlight
Leatherman original
Army pressure bandage & first aid kit
Small AM/FM/Shortwave radio
Light meter
Leica IIIf camera with 3 lenses, accessories & film
Notebook, mechanical pencil, pen
32 oz water bottle
Normal wallet contents

Occasionally the iPhone or Nintendo DS depending on family needs.

It's over my shoulder everytime I go out the door.

every morning I fill my pockets with 5 items

cell phone, keys, pocket knife, a small cross in the watch pocket and wallet

The gun goes on the belt

March 10, 2010, 08:27 AM
G has me shaded....

I mostly settle for my just wallet and my keys
(leastways on days I can find my keys !)

the gun rides IWB

March 10, 2010, 09:39 AM
oldfool, are you the last person in America that does not carry a cell phone?

and no pocket knife?

March 10, 2010, 10:10 AM
Spare Change
Benchmade Griptillan D2
Samsung Rugby
Zebra ball point pen
Solarforce L2 flashlight
2 speed strips w/ 5 rds each

Sometimes I pocket carry my Ruger SP-101 but most of the time it goes IWB.

March 10, 2010, 10:13 AM

Something kind of like this. I have a pocket holster for the J, I dont carry that knife anymore I have a smaller RUKO now or a TDI like yours plus a wallet. Sometimes I have the Hi Power added to this as well but I am usually carrying one or the other.


March 10, 2010, 05:36 PM
Revolver only? Ok, I can actually play in that league - Taurus CIA Ultralite 38 2" in a Mikas pocket holster.


March 10, 2010, 06:24 PM
Here's my pocket/everyday carry stuff, minus the palm centro that's taking the crappy (sorry for that) picture.

That's a NAA Mini .22lr and a dream to carry...
Edit - I don't carry the Bible; I leave that in the truck.


March 10, 2010, 06:33 PM
Not all in my pocket but you get the point.
'74 m-37, Bianchi IWB, Winchester 130gr +P

March 10, 2010, 06:38 PM
I don't pocket carry a revolver much anymore since I got my Ruger LCP, but when I do I carry my LCR in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster.



I also carry my NAA .22 Magnum from time to time. It is a very handy little sucker to have on hand for those times that you need a gun that will completely disappear.


March 10, 2010, 06:41 PM
In my pockets:

- Single car key with mini flashlight
- iPhone
- Wallet

I like to travel light. ;)

March 10, 2010, 06:57 PM
When I do pocket carry it's a mid 70s S&W Model 60 or late 80s Taurus Model 85. the few extra ounces of the steel frame don't bother me.

March 10, 2010, 07:12 PM

March 10, 2010, 07:27 PM

Usually either one of my 642-1's or my M&P 340.

March 10, 2010, 08:13 PM
In my pocket now, as usual . . . even though I'm just wearing "gym short" type shorts (with elastic waist and front pockets) . . .

14 oz., or thereabouts, Model 37 in an Uncle Mikes #3 pocket holster:

Not pictured, Moleskine, Bullet pen, SAK, pocket tin, prytool.

March 10, 2010, 09:42 PM
Most of yours is already on the belt, knife, snub and neck knife. I would swap the spray for a Speedstrip reload.

Carry it in a .....


You could belt the phone/pda. Good to go. Oh and btw you need a good LED flashlight. I would recommend a 4Sevens Preon 2XAAA in the shirt pocket. Awesome light.


Get the Preon 2 Titanium for maximum :cool: factor. You could even hang it from the chain knife under the shirt.

Rarely pocket-carried (usually IWB), but mine gun is a Charter Arms Undercover from 1987. Still tight, shoots the way it should. Bought it the day I got hired as a LEO, and served as a BU/OD piece the first few years.
LF pocket: badge case with ID and one or two CCs. (No longer in LE; badge reads "EMS")
RF pocket: two sets of keys, both of which hold house key and one key to each of three vehicles.
LR pocket is empty.
RR pocket: loose change, if any.
BELT: IWB holster at about 8:00 (I'm left-handed) with handgun, either the Undercover, or a Bersa Thunder. Knife at about 3:00. Cellphone in belt case at about 1:00.

March 10, 2010, 11:16 PM
I got me a lot of pockets:


The centerpiece is of course the Speed Six .357 with four Safariland speedloaders.

I think I have too many lighters though.

oldfool, are you the last person in America that does not carry a cell phone?

and no pocket knife?

well, I "carry" a cell phone, but I don't wear it... gets in the way of my fast draw !
(mostly leave it in the car, cell phone that is, not gun... good excuse for not answering it you know, "don't call me, I will call you")

and, alas, don't carry a pocket knife anymore... had to give up too many of 'em to those nice folks at the airport
now I just stash pocketknives in every toolbox, glove compartment, and range bag

March 11, 2010, 04:37 AM
Right pocket...Old Smith Model 37 Airweight, 1952 Flatlatch in a Backwoods Leather Pocket Holster. Revolver loaded with W-W 158gr LSWC +P. Left pocket, Benchmade folder on a pocket clip, Surefire light, and Bianchi Speed Strip loaded with 5 more rounds of lead HPs, and a handkerchief because Mom always said a gentleman should carry one. Whatever second gun I'm carrying goes either on the belt or ankle.

Hello friends and neighbors // Working in the city a lot lately and trimmed down to this and my wallet.( I keep a truck and house key in my wallet)

Cell phone is on my belt, a flashlight and multitool are in a holster ready to place on belt at need. The 442 is also carried IWB 11:00 in a simple Quest soft leather clip holster.

Otherwise I think Cosomoline has my bag,(minus 2 walkie talkies and a whistle with magnifer and thermometer attached). I never know where I'm going to find myself next and I go thru a lot of open (no cell service) country.

A s&w 438 in a pocket holster, a speed strip with reloads, a cell phone, flashdrive, micro leatherman, and my keys that have a single AAA LED flashlight on it.

March 11, 2010, 08:45 PM
