Good pocket holster for a glock 42 Login/Join 
Member
posted
Since getting my glock 42 parts upgraded at a gssf match and getting the e mail glock is sending me the upgraded magazines, I am hoping to vet the pistol as reliable enough for carry. Should that occur, I will be looking to get a pocket holster for it.

What are everyone’s preferred pocket holsters?

While I've used a leather pocket holster for a S&W 642 from JW O'Rourke for several years now, I used a DeSantis Nemesis synthetic for a Glock 26 for a comparatively short while.

While the holster worked well, I admit I'd probably opt for a leather pocket holster again if I were to pocket-carry a 26 or a 42.

Kydex pocket holster from lefthandholster.com

I have about 6 of them for various guns and think they are the best designed pocket holster on the market.

I regularly pocket carry a Glock 26 and have 2 pocket holsters for it.

The Galco Pocket Horsehide works great if drawing clean from the pocket. It has a tall rib in the front that engages the pocket, leaving the holster inside on the draw stroke.

The Alabama Pocket holster works even better for keeping the gun from sliding up and down in the holster but it has a ledge on the side that requires your thumb to push the gun out of the holster on the draw.

Hope this helps...

I'm a big fan of Desantis Nemisis pocket holsters. I've done a P7, DB9, Shield 40 and G19 in them and they do what they are supposed to.

I carry a G43 in a DeSantis Nemesis almost daily. Love it

DeSantis Nemesis for G42, G43, and Ruger LCR.

I use a DeSantis holster, primarily for a smith 642, or a G43. It works very well. I also use a DeSantis pocket holster for the G33.

I pocket carry 90% of the time and went through many pocket holsters of various material but always come back to the DeSantis Nemesis.

I think it truly is the best pocket holster on the market. The leather and Kydex ones I had tried never wanted to stay put while drawing the pistol but the Nemesis works each and every time like that.

Another vote for AHolster (lefthandholster.com). I've had several. For a striker-fired gun like the G42 or LCP II, the AHolster is perfect. It secures the trigger but still allows for an easy draw with the holster remaining in the pocket.

I like Mika's pocket holsters. They aren't as thick as most and conceal well. I have a Kahr CM9 that disappears in relaxed fit jeans. It orients the gun in the pocket very well also.

Everything I've bought from Mika worked well.

Genuinely nice guy, from my dealings. The kind of guy you just hope always does well.

If (when) I buy a P365 I'll be getting a holster from him.

On a whim, I added one of the new Tuff Products Pocket-Roo holsters to a recent order from MidwayUSA . The thing is surprisingly good.
http://www.tuffproducts.com/5077-pocket-roo-holster/
It features a second pocket for a quick strip for my LCR. Which adds some width to it, so it may not fit in tight pockets.
They do make them without the second pocket, aka the Jr. Roo .
The material used by Tuff is more grippy than my beloved Remora holsters, and also is softer. This is my new #1 brand of pocket holster. Price was lower than Remora as well. Works great as a clip-less IWB holster, too.
Very impressive.
