Concealed carry question for te pro's

Postby Alaska2texas » Mon May 01, 2017 7:50 pm

Just wanted to get sole feedback as i cant find anything on the net.

Is pocket carry legal in the state of texas? Bought a bodyguard .380 and man is it small.

Id like to pocket carry of legal with a LTC, no holster yet, just one in the pipe and safety on.

Cheers

It is legal to pocket carry in Texas. I personally would not carry a pistol in my pocket without a holster rather is has a safety or not.

I strongly suggest a pocket holster. I have a Mika for my 442 and a diy for my Seecamp. In addition to safety, a good pocket holster enhances presentation by keeping the gun in the same place and reducing the risk of snagging on clothing.

:iagree: :iagree:

Holster that cover's the trigger. And stiff enough to stay away from the trigger.

I pocket carry a Sig P938 or a Sig P238 in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster.

I have 2 Remora holsters for my Bodyguard. One for pocket and one for IWB. Inexpensive and comfortable.

No holster. No carry. Too dangerous to not cover the trigger.

I use a sticky when I pocket carry.

What they said - the holster is a primary safety device.

For pocket carry, I only use the AHolster pocket holster. Kydex, so won't get in the trigger, stays in the pocket very well. They make one for a bodyguard.
