Any concerns about pick-pockets when carrying in the back pocket? I have read that it is recommended you carry your money, wallet, etc. in the front pocket, especially when traveling, to help protect against pick-pocketing. That, among others, is a reason I carry in the front pocket.

Your thoughts?

I carry IWB with the belt clip, back pocket with wallet holster, and in my boot with a cheap leather wallet holster with leather too thin for pocket carry. I wear chino slacks so my back pocket are plenty deep. Also, I am extreme aware of my surroundings. No one gets close enough to get to my back pocket. On those occasions when I'm in a crowd, I keep my hand on my back pocket so no one can get in it. If I have any concerns at all, I carry IWB or in my boot.

Right front pocket only for me. First 32 years of my life I lived in NYC - for as long as I can remember have carried my wallet in my left front pocket over concern of being pick pocketed.

Left front pocket of my Wranglers, for now at least.  The GA handgun carry license requires us  to carry in a holster or use a belt clip to be legal here in GA, so my wife cut and sewed a bare minimum pocket holster for me out of soft leather just to make it legal. It fits nicely in the left front pocket without printing the shape of the pistol.  But I'm slow and clumsy on the draw with my left hand, so I'm going to start carrying in the right front pocket and keep keys and change in the left front pocket so I can draw and fire quicker if I ever need to God forbid. I tried carrying it in the right side for a while yesterday,  and I found that it's gonna be awfully hard to get used to having my keys, change,  and pocket knife on the left side after carrying them on the right side for the last 50+ years.

I've been carrying in my right front pocket and I also find it hard to not put anything there. I usually hang my keys on my right and also my cell phone. Been trying to keep everything on the left and very hard to get used to. Today I found some change in my right after I got out of the post office (no carry there) so didnt think about it till I put my gun back in there.

I carry in my front right pocket. I have always carried my wallet in my front left just because I don't like sitting on a lump. I recall seeing a picture on here of someone's KT with a cracked frame from being sat on. I did a quick search and couldn't find it; maybe somebody else can remember what thread it was in?

I've carried my cash in a money clip (now a small Kershaw chive functions as the clip) in my left front pocket since 1966 and now my right pocket is full with P3.

When my Dad was about 70 he would wrap a bunch of rubberbands around his wallet, so the pick pockets couldn't get it out easily.  He continued this practice when he went in the resthome.  To this day I wonder where my Dad was going that he had to be concerned about pick pockets and what kind of people where in that rest home?
