There’s nothing much more reassuring than the feel of a revolver in your pocket. Barrister Christopher B. apparently agrees and doesn’t mess around. Not one to settle for a more compact J-frame, C.B. pockets a 686 with an extra stripper clip of Hornady’s finest dissuaders. Enough to handle just about any sticky situation in which you’re likely to find yourself. See the rest of his carry complement at Everyday Carry.

  1. I love to pocket carry a revolver, but a steel framed 6 shot .357 is a little heavier than I want to pocket (though I have pocket carried my similar sized .357 Rossi 461 before).

    Personally I love the J-Frame, but have to tip my hat to the man that pocket carries a better revolver.

    • Agreed there Art, a J frame feels wide enough for the pocket, I can’t imagine a 686.

      For the article in genera, one nit to pick; speed strip not stripper clip.

    • J frame for pocket carry. But if you must carry bigger a good belt and suspender combo helps. I honestly don’t know if any of the pants I have would fit a bigger wheelgun in the pockets.

      My mak, which isn’t a large gun, shows itself sticking a little bit out of my favorite jeans. A large, floppy t shirt usually covers it.

      • JWM – I thought you lived in a California location that wouldn’t allow you to CCW a firearm anyway. I just had to give you a hard time.

        Regarding the Makarov: I think the P-64 or FEG-63 is the way to go for pocket carrying a 9X18 pistol. Sadly, I only have a CZ82 (not very pocket-able). I do hope to pick up a Makarov sometime, just because they are cool.

    • So, this is me.

      FWIW, I have the good fortune to work from home at a standing desk, so I typically tuck the Sticky either in my jeans hip pocket or (if I’m going out) in my belt at 1:00, and there it stays. With the 2.5″ barrel, it’s surprisingly comfortable (really), conceals well, and fine for home carry and running errands and such.

      However, if my day-to-day required more physical activity, then no, it wouldn’t be great. I’d put it in a more stable OWB holster.

  2. Love these pocket dumps, but I have to question almost everything I’ve seen. Every piece of equipment looks brand new. I’m a blue collar guy; most of my pocket knives are well worn. My gun has a slight tarnish on the end where it goes in and out of the holster every day. Hell, even my keys have lost much of their shiny coating.
