Wife: "Did you get a new phone"
Me: "No, why?"
Wife: "Looks like a bigger phone in your pocket."
Me: "Glad you think so!"

It was my Shield Plus in a Recluse holster. I've been pocket carrying steadily for two months in all my shorts and my Sunday clothes. Works good, gonna last a long time!
 
Had a similar thing when I pocket carried but it was more of “what the hell do you have in your pocket?”

I prefer IWB where even my wife, who knows when and where I carry, can’t tell when she looks.

I'm with ya. After my back surgery I was able to belt carry again for a while, but the side effect I wasn't expecting was the additional pain in the remaining arthritic vertebrae.
It's just my way of life, if I'm to carry at all.
 
Guess I need better pants because pocket carrying a magazine is annoying.:confused:
Well, he makes some models that carry the mag, too:

...or you could always belt carry a spare mag. Or not carry one at all.

OP, do you have a one-sided or two sided version?

Should I be concerned with the trigger not being covered on the inside of a one-sided mode P3651-F.jpg
 
I have a pocket holster for my Ruger LCP. It assumes a square-ish pocket bottom. All of my pants have pockets that are either angle-cut on the bottom, or some kind of weird slice-of-liver shape, and the holster rotates sideways in them, making it hard to get the gun out.

As long as the pocket is deep enough, you can stitch across the bottom to hold the gun at whatever height and angle you prefer.

Maybe it's just Recluse or maybe the Sig Sauer P365 is so popular of a pistol that they made designs for several different pockets. Take a look at the different bottom profiles of the holsters on this page, especially the bottom three. It looks like they have one for front pockets, one for back pockets and one for cargo pockets:

I would worry more about sweat and moisture condensation on the gun, with the single sided Recluse pocket holster, than I would worry about an exposed trigger, as I use a manual trigger safety. But I am all for redundancy! Also, the leather flap on the inside of the two sided holster will help protect your pocket from wear against the control levers on your pistol.

I occasionally carry a P365X in my jeans pocket using a two sided Recluse holster. It works fairly well. I also carry a bunch of stuff in my left pocket so it just looks like a carry a lot of crap in my pockets. I did cut off the manual safety lever from the RIGHT side of my P365X so it better fit into the holster. The manual safety lever on the LEFT side doesn't protrude any further than the takedown lever or the slide lock. But I do need to remember to NOT put change or keys into my pistol pocket. Nothing but the pistol and holster go into that pocket.

The holster reeked from the waterproofing compound when I received it. But now after it has been aired out I need to put the holster within an inch of my nose before I can smell it.

I carry a spare mag in my rear pocket.
