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.
