I have P3AT that I carry in my right rear back pocket. I mostly wear blue jeans. I am curious about other people's experience with their back pocket holsters for P3AT or Ruger LCP.

In my testing I have managed to accumulate 3 pocket holsters. One is an uncle George made out of stiff leather, the other is a Sticky, and the third one is a cloth one purchased for under $10 on eBay.

I haven't been carrying much, but lately I decided that if I didn't carry more often then I would never get used to it. So for the last month and a half I've been carrying daily with the Uncle George in my right rear blue jeans pocket.

I really like the uncle George but the truth is the sticky brand holster is the most comfortable and least revealing. What surprises me is that the cheap ebay cloth holster is just about as good as the Sticky. It is also comfortable and not revealing. The Uncle George is certainly the one that would have the least possibility of printing due its stiff leather backing giving it the look of a large wallet. Unfortunately the leather is so stiff that it's quite hard even if you touch it through the cloth and someone bumping into me is going to notice the George way before they would notice the sticky or the cloth holster.

All three draw equally well leaving the holster in the pocket when drawing the pistol out.

So, those of you who carry in you're right rear blue jeans pocket, what holster do you use?

I don't carry rear pocket, mine is in the front.

I use a a thin, rectangular kydex holster, with points on either side that catch and hold it in your pocket when drawing. It prints flat, no sign of what it is.

Kydex is smooth, so no resistance at all when removing the LCP.

This fits comfortably in the right-rear pocket of my 501s.

I asked the owner of Uncle George's holsters what type of jeans he is using because the photograph that he shows has the pistol much further down in the pocket then on my blue jeans. He uses*Wrangler "rugged wear". Today I went to our local Tractor Supply, which is the only store that stocks Wrangler rugged wear, and try them on and tested the pocket. I almost bought a pair until I compare the rear pocket to that of the Levis 505. That pair of jeans has the deepest pockets. I purchased a pair and I'll try them out it's about a quarter of an inch maybe maybe a half inch deeper than what I have. In the fitting room I test the pistol in the pocket and it definitely goes in deeper in the closet above sort of falls over and makes the gun one visible. I think the Levis 505 might do the trick.
