I'm still looking for / thinking about buying a real pocket holster. I have a home made one. It is out of neopren with a cloth liner. it is basicly a half round shap. Only open at the top. But I know I need a real holster. One that will do a better job of keeping the gun upright in my pocket. I believe that a CCW holster for front pocket carry should have the following: Keep the gun upright in the pocket and "easy" to remove from the holster. Designed to do a good job of gaurding the triger. Completly closed bottom to keep "pocket" stuff ("lint" etc., out of the gun). A pocket print that helps to hide the imprint of the gun. In looking into "Pocket" holsters I am amazed at the large number of holsters that are open at the bottom. I don't get it... Why would anyone want or settle for a pocket holster that is open at the bottom???? I had to laugh at the guy selling holsters on Ebay where he also gives you a "report" on valuble information on CCW carry etc., but his holsters are open ended.... You tell me open or closed??? Is one better or not. Personaly I can't see getting an open one.
