While limiting the carrier to a relatively small handgun, pocket carry offers some unique advantages. Not only is the handgun completely covered and concealed, but the gun carrier can casually place a hand on the holstered/pocketed pistol if a nonspecific threat materializes – and the fastest draw is to have the gun already in hand.
The Pocket Protector™ holster is designed for front pocket carry in pants or a jacket. Galco's pocket holsters greatly minimize the handgun from shifting in your pocket, allowing for a sure and quicker grip acquisition when drawing. The holster covers the trigger to prevent entanglement with foreign objects and adds a safety barrier between fingers and trigger when acquiring a grip. It conceals the shape of the handgun so its outline doesn’t print through the pocket, and allows one-handed release of the handgun from both pocket and holster.
Reinforcements at the holster mouth and beneath the trigger guard keep the holster stiff enough to allow a smooth draw and easy return to the holster, while also maintaining enough rigidity to prevent “printing” and shifting of the handgun. The holster’s hooked shape – at the base of the handgun’s trigger guard – is designed to catch on the pocket so that, with practice (using an unloaded firearm) and while using the proper pants, you can draw the firearm while the holster remains in your pocket or falls away.
The Pocket Protector is ambidextrous and constructed of premium Center Cut Steerhide™.
The holster should always be removed from the pocket when holstering the handgun.
NOTE: Pocket Protector for NAA mini-revolvers includes a flapped pocket for spare rounds.

Ryan Review for POCKET PROTECTOR HOLSTER (5.0 out of 5)
The holster seems to be quality and although I’ve only had it for a month, I can tell it’s going to last a long time. It breaks in nicely, yet still has enough retention to hold the gun in when turned upside down. Very comfortable to carry in my pocket and no unnecessary bulk. The trigger guard is completely covered which is a must with any holster. The price was more than fair, I will be coming back to Galco should I need another leather holster.

Does the trick
Nice little holster, well made, reasonably priced and quite serviceable. Very good fit, in that it holds the revolver, but still allows a smooth presentation (as much as a pocket holster can) without a need for a break-in.

My 2nd Pocket Protector Holster
Bought the first Pocket Protector for S&W 380. I liked it and it fit so well, I had to have a second for my SIG P938! Really convenient for quickly stepping out to check the mail or walk the dog. Nice quality product; clears the holster consistently and surprisingly well!
