    I dunno ’bout you, but “pocket dump” sounds very unsanitary to me.

    1. avatar Ing says:

      I had an accidental pocket dump once. Never wore that pair of pants again.

    I’ve tried carrying my watch around in my pocket but it’s easier to read on my wrist

    I Love the key holder, I’ll have to find one for myself. As for the Knife’s Clip being flipped compared to most other knives I’d like to note I just purchased one for the first time like that and I am so used too the clip being in the regular position I still go through the motions even after a month, my first obvious muscle memory that I have to re-train and re-learn, makes me wary of training anything wrong.

      I’m a big fan of orienting the knife like that. I won’t buy a knife that won’t allow me to carry like that.

      1. avatar Art out West says:

        I orient my knife that way as well, mainly because I am a lefty.

        1. avatar Mattb says:

          I also carry my knife that way for being left handed.

        “I’m a big fan of orienting the knife like that.”

        There are good clip knifes that allow you to orient the clip up, down, R or L…

      Ive had the key smart system myself now for months and they work great. In mine i have 9 keys and its been a lot more cofortable to carry them. I use a ring like he does and put my keyfob and little streamlight on that.

    When I tried to dump out my pockets, I couldn’t get things to land in a neat grid like that.

  5. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    Is that a handcuff key?

    Yes! Yes, it is a handcuff key!

    Do they come in handy for supermarket store managers?
    Just wonderin’.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      The handcuff key is known to symbolize the ‘ownership’ of one person to another.

      Kind of like a ring, but with a bit more ‘authority’…

      *cough*, *cough* 🙂

    Robb H. – Can you give any tips on pocket carrying a Glock 26?

    Anybody else can chime in if they want to.

    I love pocket carry, but generally limit it to a J-Frame Airweight revolver or a micro .380. I’ve thought about doing the single stack 9mm (Shield/LC9/Glock43) thing as well, but they really don’t offer enough of an upgrade in my mind. I really want to pocket carry a Glock 26, so I can throw 17 round magazines into the mix.

    Do you only pocket carry this with baggy slacks, or cargo style pants? Can you also do this with jeans? I’ve tried pocket carry with my Glock 19 and loose cargo shorts. The 19 is still a hair big. I’d feel comfortable doing the 26 in cargo shorts (don’t have a 26, and cannot go to work in shorts).

      Robb H. uploaded that photo to everydaycarry.com and may not be a TTAG reader.

      I carry a Glock 26 in a holster, sometimes inside and sometimes outside the waistband, depending on the concealing garment. I’m an average-size guy with a 34 inch waist, and I don’t consider that gun small enough for pocket carry.

      Opinions may vary.

      1. avatar Art out West says:

        That is what I’ve always thought as well, which is why I usually carry my 642 instead of a Glock 26. I’m a bit lazy, and just prefer pocket carry to IWB or OWB carry.

    2. avatar Frank in VA says:

      To pocket a G26 without massive printing I would have to throw fashion sense to the wind and start wearing pleated pants again. With the pants I usually wear, anything bigger then an LCP starts to look conspicuous.

      1. avatar Accur81 says:

        I have a Glock 27, and pocket carry with that gun is conspicuous and uncomfortable. I pocket carry a Smith .380 Bodyguard on occasion. That gun is surprisingly accurate.

  7. avatar SAS 2008 says:

    I prefer a slightly bigger flashlight. Streamlight pro tac 1L is big enough to be useful and small enough to always pocket carry.

    1. avatar D Wreck says:

      Check out the Olight S1 Baton, It is fantastic and much brighter than the L1.

  8. avatar Hannibal says:

    For the life of me I don’t get the impulse to take a photo of what you put in your pocket so you can post it on the internets. Is this the same bizarre overexposure that makes people think it’s a good idea to take a photo of their food for instagram every day?

    1. avatar Erik says:

      I guess you’re not a big fan of “talking shop,” either.

  9. avatar Rob says:

    I’ve owned a Glock 26 and a 27. While they will fit in a larger pocket like those found on cargo pants or loose jeans, the gun is too thick and bulky especially when a pocket holster is added to the mix. I’ve never liked the feeling of the gun banging against my leg when I walk. The J frame revolver or Glock 43 I have now is about as large as I would carry in my pocket. Anyone who carries a Glock or any other auto with a round chambered in their pocket WITHOUT some sort of holster is looking to give themselves a very violent vasectomy, imho.
    I have a job where pistol packing is verboten, so I’ve mainly relied upon good iwb holsters for my G43 and dressing around it. For a few months I had an LCP. That was an ideal pocket carry gun, and now that the crummy trigger is ostensibly fixed, I may once again buy myself of one of these. I didn’t realize just how perfect that gun was for pocket carry when I had it.
