I sure do!

I have a S&W Model 38 bodyguard (the snubby with the shrouded hammer).

It rides in a DeSantis nemesis holster that I had to cut up a bit until it was comfortable.

If my primary is too deep (tucked in a shirt or whatever) the snubby in the front pocket is a nice speedy alternative even if the caliber isn't as good.

It's also easy to drop in the pocket if you don't feel like fully "gearing up".

generally if I am pocket carrying I am carrying one of two things - A NAA derringer in 45 colt or a Keltec P38 .380 - generally those serve only when I am going somewhere where no other carry position is feasible. The derringer I carry un hostered because it is single action only. The keltec is generally carried in a uncle mike's inside the pocket holster. This holster is made with two tabs that hold the holster in the pocket unless you specifically want it to come out. Generally I can reach my hand in my pocket like I am reaching for my billfold and come out with either of those in a position to fire if necessary.

Blackie Collins® Toters™ Pistol Packing Jeans

Update:

As more than a few OTters pocket carry I figured I'd post up this new product that I noticed being resold in my latest copy of Brigade Quartermasters.
This thread seemed most appropriate to tag against...

BLACKIE COLLINS® TOTERS™ PISTOL PACKING JEANS
TOTERS™ are a premium line of stone washed blue denim jeans with special pockets intended to "tote" handguns and knives. A driving force behind Blackie designing TOTERS™, was the ability to carry handguns and knives comfortably while riding a motorcycle.

In fact, if Blackie had been wearing TOTERS™ on the night he hit a 200 lb. hog, he still would have had to replace his BMW R1100 RT motorcycle, he still would have broken his wrist and both ankles, he still would have needed seventeen staples in his head, but he would not have had to replace the grips and night-sights on his Kahr MK9.




TOTERS™ Jeans Features:

• Designed by Blackie Collins®
• Comfortable and great looking
• Relaxed fit with straight leg
• Stone-washed and pre-shrunk
• Proudly made in the southern USA.

Front Pockets

• Cordura-Plus™ lining in gun pockets
• Regular front pockets carry
• Patent pending lacing system - Adjustable to fit most handguns
• Designed for left or right hand
• Gun pockets more comfortable than any holster
• Less bulge than any holster
• Total concealment with T-shirt, jacket, vest or when handgun is placed completely inside pocket

Back Pockets

• Non abrasive Cordura-Plus™ lining
• Gun will not wear thru or mark denim
• Lining helps conceal silhouette of gun

Knife Pockets

• Jeans also have separate knife pocket
• Locates knife conveniently at fingertips
• Comfortable carry of even large folding knives
• Pocket also good for carrying flashlight, cell phone, or small tools

• Sizes: 28 - 60 even
• Inseams: 30'',32'',34''

Big sizes 44 and up are at additional cost.

Videos of the product in use including holstering a govt./fullsize 1911 aka hogleg - http://www.totersjeans.com/vids.html

I think I might order a pair as the price isn't bad considering it's two products built into one, a holster system and oontz stylized jeans.

But they're only useful (for hip pocket carry, anyway) in states where open carry is legal, right? I can only imagine the hue and cry if some semi-scruffy-looking banker/weekend Harly rider was flying down the interstate with his pistol hanging off his hip:

Soccermom: <dials 911> "OMG, officers, there's a bad man on a motorcycle with a GUN!!! Come quik!"

Ending in a confrontation with the law, dude on motorcycle (or in the quick stop, in the movie theater line, getting some tacos, etc.) getting hassled by the man and/or having to go through a felony vehicle stop or other police stop, search, etc. beacuse he's carrying openly instead of inside the waistband, under the arm, etc.

Edit: Even where open carry's legal, most regular non-CCWsavvy citizenry isn't going to be too keen on it, so I could imagine that sort of thing going on just about anywhere.

No, this is not for open carry exclusively...which is largely fubar and not widely adopted by states anyway. Besides if one were in an open carry state then there would be no need/desire for concealment holsterized pants like these.

Anyway the pics as shown have no cover in use because they are trying to show how the product works & looks with different type and sized sidearms.
Of course a person would wear cover of their choice and not go walking around the mall or riding their Harley on the streets with the butt of their gun exposed.
As well the carry mode as shown is effectively appendix carry style.

I usually carry my glock 27 in my single thumb break galco for work. I have to wear a jacket or an overshirt, regardless of weather though. When i'm not working i'll sometime just pocket carry my beretta 21a .25auto.

You'd think that a guy that got a degree in advertising would be able to figure out the bolded part, but I guess it was late in the day yesterday. :D

A long shirt, jersey, or jacket and you're good to go- I was just thinking on the motorcycle angle, since it was mentioned in the initial post, as well as that motorcycle jackets tend to be cut kind of short.

What's appendix carry? Terminology ownz me. Still learning about this stuff, reading toward probably applying for a permit and buying a pistola at some point in the near future.

Appendix Carry ...hmm.

GIS is not helping me out here.
You know how traditional carry the holster is placed OWB (outside the waistband) at the hip, cowboy & cop style. Thats called 3 O'Clock position.
Appedix carry is just forward of that at the 1 O'Clock position just at where your appendix is. This mode of carry makes for super fast access to the weapon as well it's said it's the best position for retention.
With an IWB (inside the waistband) holster or carrying 'Mexican' (holsterless) at this position on an average sized man with no gut in the way the gun practically disaapears under a cover.

I sometimes carry this way myself via my Bandera 'Belster' gunbelt holster.
It's a comfortable mode of carry. In this products case ones belly if they have one wouldn't get in the way as the barrel goes down the pant holseter pocket and the butt runs along their side/hip rather than being out front under/in front of the gut.
