    Kydex Pocket Holster Suggestions?

    I pocket carry every day. Usually a Sig P938 in a Mika pocket holster. It's been great. But as my son has turned 2, I don't feel as comfortable with it. Especially when he wants to sit on my lap. I use a Remora holster for my LCP, but don't carry that very often.

    So I want to try something with kydex that covers the trigger and safety, but is still easy to draw.

    Any suggestions from people who have actually carried a pocket kydex holster?

    I'm working with a Cross Breed Cargo Carry. Looks like I'm carrying a small book if I use a front pocket, but it is a solid design.

    That doesn't look comfortable at all. Is the Kydex/gun against your thigh?

    IMHO Alabama Holsters are the best Kydex pocket holsters around. Unlike some on INGO, I believe that pocket carry can be done safely. AS LONG AS some basic safety rules are followed.

    Using a Kydex pocket holster is one of the rules that I have. After using several different types of pocket holsters, I believe that Alabama is the best. I am NOT a paid sponcer / advertiser. Just a really happy customer who has owned several holsters from this company.

    I will warn you, they are not a super speedy operation though. It takes a couple of months for them to make and ship your holster to you. But many of the custom holster makers have that same turn time or much worse.

    That's interesting. Why do they think it can't be done safely?

    I've always used the DeSantis Nemesis as a pocket holster, and nothing else in that pocket. I've had 0 issues with it
    The best way to have your gun when you need it, is to always have your gun.

    Detroit Holster's John R Pocket holster. I have one for my LCP and it's perfect.

    I just bought one from Vedder. Pocket Locker - Vedder Holsters

    Seems very similar to Alabama.

    Me too. But I'm interested if someone comes across something better. I carry a shield and depending on which pants I ware it can print pretty bad, especially when I'm sitting. Not sure if Kydex would be a better option than the DeSantis though.

    I don't use the safety on my shield anyway so it's not really a big concern that the holster doesn't cover it. But it would be an issue for someone who does have/use a safety.
