Pants customized for pocket carry. Awkward shuffle-run possibly included:
Maybe that’s just how that guy runs, even without those pants? Who knows, but if I had a compact Glock jammed in my right pocket I’m positive I wouldn’t look like much of an operator when running either.
Killer pleats bro. See a dude explain the system and appear to fiddle with his junk for a minute and a half:
If I thought pocket carry was a good idea I would like this idea in theory. What I definitely don’t like is that you have to buy their pants to get it. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a snob when it comes to a lot of things, clothing being one of them. I don’t care what other people wear or can or can’t afford, but I personally wouldn’t want to be seen even cutting lawn in these “Mom jeans”.
Getting a pair of jeans that I like, and/or already own customized by a seamstress to do this? Now that sounds like a better business plan for a niche market.
I watched some of the videos on youtube, and the draw looks pretty awkward. Although they say it’s faster in comparison to other CCW methods, they don’t show the fact you would (or should) be carrying your loaded Glock with a trigger block which you would still have to eject.
The three things you will have to practice:
- Reaching in a closed pocket and grabbing the gun
- Tilting the gun toward your junk to break the snaps on the pants open
- Ejecting the trigger block before you can fire
Under extreme stress I just don’t see the average person having the dexterity to preform all three of those actions flawlessly. My personal belief is that you still can’t beat a good IWB holster for simplicity, safety, and comfort.
Check out the CCW Breakaway website for more information, or to purchase a pair.
