    So who pocket carries? What firearm and in what holster?

    I sometimes pocket a S&W 340PD in a Mika. Think I may get a good pocket holster for my P365. I've got a Sticky Holster for it, but it's a little bulky.

    Sometimes. S&W 340 M&P with no holster in jacket pocket. Kind of comforting to walk in a parking lot with my hand in the pocket. I’ve posted video before of me ruining a jacket with full house .357 mag at the range close distance. It’s on youtube under pstmstr user name if anyone wants to see it. Girl shouldn’t have asked me what time it was from within my personal space.

    Glock 42 in front pants pocket sometimes in Mika square bottom holster. I would think the 365 would be a bit big for pocket carry. I’ve done it with my 43 but find AIWB better for it.

    You're probably right, as far as pants pockets. Maybe okay in a jacket pocket though. I usually carry the P365 AIWB in a Vedder Light Tuck; it works well in that; I might oughta just leave the pocket carry role to the J-Frame.

    Smith and Wesson M&P 340. Front pocket or coat pocket. I never carry it in my back pocket, hurts my narrow azz to sit on it.

    Ruger LCP 2 in Desantis Nemesis with a 7 round mag in back left pocket.

    Sometimes, a Ruger LCR in.38 special +P in a Safariland model 25 pocket holster along with a Bianchi speed strip in front left pocket.

    I also carry a 340 m&p in a mika.
    Curious to see what grips you guys have on your 340's. I have uncle mikes combat grips. They are a bit long. Im probably gonna but the stock grips back on. They let the 340 disappear a bit better.

    S&W Model 29 with an 8” barrel. I just poke a hole through the bottom of the jeans pocket, and presto.
