disantis superfly or Talon LCP Holster

I'm trying to decide between the disantis superfly or the Talon pocket holster for my LCP. Any suggestions?

Another idea if you are going to pocket carry. This way, you can shoot the weapon while it is in the holster. I found one as an example.

Also you may want to look into the pocket clip for this weapon. Seeing you are living in an open or consealed state, it's not a big deal if it is seen. Plenty of people here use them, and wear an untucked shirt to cover.

No, no, NO!!! You do NOT want to carry ANYTHING that keeps your trigger exposed. You're just begging for a negligent discharge.

LCP doesn't have a safety? Yikes, I didn't know that!

I never thought of carrying a "pocket gun". What is the draw like from one?

Doesn't matter if your firearm has an external safety or not. Safetys can get flipped off via a variety of user-errors.

It comes down to one fundamental principal... presuming no other mechanical issues, a firearm will NOT discharge unless the trigger is pulled. As such, if you are going to carry a firearm, keep that trigger covered and guarded at all times.

Care to elaborate on "what is the draw like from one?" Your question is vague.

What would it be like to draw from a pocket gun? Can you do it one handed, or do you remove the gun from your pocket, then remove the holster from the gun?

Holsters that don't cover triggers are for people who don't like their wedding tackle, IMHO.

The pocket holster with the tacky finish (both stylistically and physically tacky, I mean) works very well-gun slips out of holster easier than holster slips out of pocket.

drawing from your pocket takes too long

Shooting through your pants? I have seen women shooting through a purse while training, but pants are a new one to me.

*sigh* Yet another foolish idea.

First, were these women you saw "in training," using semi-autos or revolvers?

Your original bit of advice was to use a pocket "holder" for a semi-auto. Tell me, what happens to your semi-auto, if the slide doesn't function properly? What happens if it does not recoil fully and/or return to full battery? Where does that extracted spent cartridge have to go? Ever hear of a stovepipe malfunction? Failure to feed malfunction? Failure to extract malfunction?

Training to shoot from a confined space, such as a pocket or purse, is simply begging for a catastrophic malfunction, on top of the risk of self-injury.

I never said shooting through your pants was a good idea, simply asking what Jarod was asking. I saw this YouTube video of women shooting through a purse. I have never seen it in person. Here is the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW1ZW...e_gdata_player

As far as advice, I never gave any, simply showed another "pocket gun" holster. I guess if the gun were to designed to be fired in the holster, the slide would be able to move? If not, that's a pretty crappy design.

In the real world of carrying a firearm, if it isn't convinent, 95% of people will not carry. A 1911 in the middle of summer with (3) extra mags isn't convinent to me. My IWB G19 gets tiresome during long days. I will probably switch to a G26 for EDC (every day carry)? When have you carried all day, and what was it? What would you use for EDC? Just curious.

I think it's a given that a kydex belt holster will be 'faster' than a pocket holster, just as the holster you linked to will be slower than one of my custom IDPA holsters. Different gear for totally different situations.

I guess I meant 'too slow' in a tactical sense; having to do a fast draw is far less frequent than having to keep a very low profile, and the whole 'have a gun' is what the pocket holsters were designed for. It gets pretty tricky wearing a belt holster in 100f heat, unless you routinely dress like the Columbine killers.

Exactially. It's a balance between comfort and protection.

I wear a t-shirt with that holster and it hides it very well...although.

You and I both know, just because you have a gun, it doesn't mean dick.

I was referring to the famed Mark Moritz line, "Gunfight rules: Rule #1; have a gun."

Better to have a little one in a pocket than none at all. I used to wear a G17 off-duty, and while you can do it with a tee shirt and jeans, it's not easy. And I doubt if it would be that much faster than the pocket holster.
