I'm currently using an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 when carrying my G2C, but I'm now thinking since I wear uniform pants daily now and casual shorts with large pockets, I may switch to pocket carry.

I've looked at a few different pocket holsters and I'm open to suggestions. Below is one that I've been thinking I want, but figured I'd ask her before making a purchase.

I use one like this for my little Ruger. I haveaa crimson light on it the the holster keeps off till I upholster it. Works good.

I'm using something similar. Additionally I cut an old washer fluid bottle in the shape of my pocket to minimize printing.

I have a few like that. They work great while standing, but I dress semi-casual at work. It prints horribly when I sit. If I am wearing my Carhartt’s though, it doesn't print at all.

I prefer a leather, tuckable, fitted holster.

Do you guys have photos of what you're using?

I'm trying to visualize the washer fluid bottle and I figured with this type of holster with loose fitting pants or shorts there would be no printing.

For more than two dozen years I carried a Taurus model 85.38 Special in my pocket with just a piece of cardboard with a folded tab at the bottom to rest the barrel on and prevent the revolver from printing.
Just a couple of folds and it would hold the revolver upright for easy grasping - no fumbling to upright the firearm.

This worked for my Charter Arms 'Off Duty' .38 Special as well.

I got to thinking I should have something lying around to make one. I ended up making one from a Homelite XL chainsaw fuel tank.

Still needs to be cleaned up a bit but the gun slides in and out easily and it don't come out with the gun. It would be better if it were a bit longer.

Now does it the shape of the gun or just a square shape. Mine looks like phone or wallet. Either way we don't have any stupid law about printing.

We don’t have any laws about printing either.

Once the holster breaks in, it makes more of a triangle shape. It might not look like a gun, but it dosent look like a wallet either.

Maybe you could add something to it like Adam mentioned?

Back in the eighties, a wallet holster was available for pocket .22's, .25's, and really small .32's.
The pistol fit inside the fabric/leather and had a trigger hole.
You drew the entire holster and fired the pistol unimpeeded by the holster.

For some reason, many States outlawed their use.

Boy, you love making unsubstantiated claims don't you?

I was aware of an ATF "rule" saying certain styles of wallet holsters with a hole that allows a handgun to be fired "may" turn the handgun in to an AOW, but nothing about many states outlawing them.

Look at sticky holsters. A G2C is a big chunk to pocket carry. I pocket carry my Ruger LCP Max behind my wallet in the el-junko holster that came with it. I mostly wear cargo pants. Carry right front pocket. Worrying about printing is silly unless it's a problem in your state. I have open carried a JHP and people are so into their own crap they are oblivious to the world. I check everyone when I shop, and out in public, I like to know who is, and who isn't.

I looked at those yesterday and I may get one at some point. With the inflation that we're now facing and the fuel expense to commute thirty miles to and from work daily, the homemade one will have to do until I pick up some overtime. I intend to put in for it tomorrow and I hope I'll get it.

Your former home State, New York as well as neighboring States, NJ and RI, all three would jail you if you were found with the hole holster in your possession, with or without a firearm.

The holsters were for single stack pistols and two shot derringers - revolvers need not apply.
