    Secure from what? Insecure why? Insecure from some dude dumb enough to try to get my gun out of a pocket directly under my nose? My beard covers it anyway. I don't recommend it for everybody. I'm special.

    LOL! Okay, good enough then. I could imagine trying that and the darn thing fall outta my pocket if I were to bend over to pick up something. Or something.

    Yeah, it's more secure (from falling out) than it sounds. The "snap" bibs hold it on one side or the other, with no room to fall out. The "zip" bibs work the same way, just zip it over to the grips up against one side of the pocket and it can't get out. If I was gonna crawl under a truck or something I'd put it somewhere else.

    If you can carry a Glock 42 comfortably then you can carry the Glock 43 just as comfy. The dimensions betwixt the two are not big enough to make a difference.

    But I would ditch that ankle holster. They suck.

    This reminds me of something I used to do when I lived in the Seattle area. Sometimes, when I went to my gunsmith's shop, his assistant, Jim would try to guess where my gun was hidden. One time I walked in wearing cheap painter's jeans and a blue, untucked work shirt and he looked me over closely. Finally he gave up and said "OK Gary, where is it?" I pulled out a 6" Model 29 from an IWB holster. We had a good laugh over that.

    Revival from the dead...I love my little P238 but think I'm gonna look into something in 9mm. A bit extra power, and the P238 is the only thing I have in .380. Now decisions decisions...

    Here lately I’ve been pocket carrying my Springfield XDE 45 with extended round magazine in an ultra-sticky DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster.

    Glock 43 and 5.11 Tactical pant. https://www.511tactical.com/511-tactical-pants-mens-cotton.html

    I drop the pistol in any pocket of those pants. Stopped using holsters because they increased the bulk. and printed baddly. Problem with no holster is that the gun rotates in pocket, slide down butt up pointing backwards. Of course it goes in a pocket that has nothing else in it.

    Wife bought me pair of the pants with tapered legs. She said they made me look sexy. I'm 72 years old, Sexy and me have not been used in the same sentence for many years. Tapered legs are tighter and make the gun print when I am sitting in church. I am staying with the normal legs-looser leg fit.

    That BORAII has caught mtattention. Ordered one. Seems less bulky and may solve the rotation problem we will see.

    In the winter when it's just too doggone cold to wear my heavy coat unbuttoned, I'll carry my 2" S&W Model 12-2 in my coat pocket. That's about it.
