Deep conceal suggestions

Greetings all. I recently made the move to a Kimber Micro CDP as my carry pistol (replacing a Micro Desert Eagle). I live and work in New York City and need to carry deeply concealed. Thanks to a number of years shooting bullseye with a 1911, I am comfortable with "position #1" but not necessarily as pocket carry...at least not yet.
Looking for suggestions for IWB or hammer protected pocket holsters...and has to be available for a left handed shooter.
Would also be interested in hearing what others think about pocket carry with a Kimber Micro.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois NYShooter, I have two Sig's (P238 & P938) that I pocket carry in condition #1. The P238 is identical to the Kimber Micro Carry. I use pocket holsters made by Pocketholsters.com. the hammer's not covered but the trigger is but you have to go with what ever makes you comfortable.

I carry mine condition 1 in a DeSantis pocket holster. Thumb safety and trigger covered. Cheap and works very well.

Ditto Albert. Cairns post. I carry my Micro the same way. Desantis pocket holster condition 1. It is comfortable, safe.

Thanks for the suggestions. No issues with hammer or sights snagging pocket edge when drawing?

Welcome to the forum from The Lou..

I was surprised to see that NYC allows conceal carry at all considering it was managed by Bloomberg & Company...

They sure don't make it easy to get though...Up to 8 months ???

It is not the easiest permit to secure but did not take 8 months. I received my carry permit during the Bloomberg administration and, from what I understand, he did not change any NYC gun laws during his tenure. The restrictions and procedures were tightened when Giuliani was mayor.

I didn't realize that Giuliani was the culprit, but ya have to give Bloomberg some credit for banning the Big Gulp that was eventually overturned.....
