Topic: Pocket Carry w/ Bryan Eastridge

Today, Riley Bowman and Bryan Eastridge discuss the idea of carrying in and practicing from the pocket. What are the best practices for pocket-carrying your defensive piece? What are some of the things to look for, and how is best to practice it?

    AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH! NEVER carry ANY handgun in ANY pocket! You need a stable, secure and repeatable platform to draw from and a pocket provides NONE of those things. The LAST thing you want in a gunfight is to be fishing around in a pocket and fumbling your draw from concealment.
