    anyone own a set of these?

    http://www.totersjeans.com/

    i was wondering if they were worth the $74 price tag. I remember a few years ago there was a guy (Dwight Grant) who made similar pants under the clothing name of State Property, which were fashioned to give the built-in capability to conceal a handgun. Not too long after the company became publicly known, he was arrested and during the chase dropped a handgun from his pants. Any further word on this line would be appreciated.

    Meh. A holster works for me, and I don't have to be wearing a particular pair of pants.

    Interesting, but a good pocket holster eliminates the need for the durable pockets. I buy Wrangler cargos, carry a Kel Tec P11 front right pocket with a home made wallet holster. Works for me.

    They don't look exactly concealed to me. Looks more like open carry in a pocket. They ride pretty low so can't be concealed with a topcover as easily.

    I think a holster would be more convenient and you get to change pants.

    I'll second that they don't exactly look "concealed". Even if the gun is totally concealed in the special pocket, I could see the possibility of printing to be pretty high, especially with that off-color fabric on the pocket drawing one's attention. Have you ever seen something that looks like that on a pair of plain old jeans? I took a super-quick look at the site and to me it stood out like a sore thumb.

    And JLBraun and MCGunner made good points - for the price of one pair of these pants, you could buy at least one, probably two good quality pocket holsters that you can use with ANY pants. That way you don't have to always make sure those special jeans are washed, pressed and ready to go.

    I'll pass.

    LOL, there's a gun sticking out of his pocket for heaven's sake. I wouldn't buy them if they were half the price. A good holster would work just fine for me.

    I guess I just don't see the point. As people have said, a holster makes more sense. The only possible benefit I can see is that conceivably these may be comfortable while riding, but I don't ride (and I'd think that motorcycles and horses are similar enough that whatever cowboys did would make the most sense).

    I got my "toters" for $20 at Sears and with a untucked T-shirt I`m fully covered.

    I'm not sure I see what they would do that my existing relaxed-fit jeans, cargo pants and chinos - all in conjunction with a pocket holster - won't do. Especially for over double the price. Call me cheap if you want. :p
