Kydex pocket holster K6S

Heavy for pocket carry but works with a good belt

Kind of hard to find a Kydex holster for K6S but an e-bay seller has them in FDE or black Kydex

Isn't that holster slippery in your pocket? How do you draw the gun without pulling the holster out with it?

The hook catches on the pocket and holster slides off, holster will most likely fall on the ground or floor but who cares if you need a handgun

That sounds like it would take a lot of practice with different pockets or you might just end up aiming a holster at the bad guy.

Personally I prefer a sticky holster that I know will stay in place when I draw the gun. Having to remember to snag the holster is just an additional step to slow you down when thousands of a second count. What happens if you miss the hook, now you have to grab the holster with your weak hand to free the pistol. JMHO

Agree ... I have the "sticky" style holster, from Blackhawk, that I use with my J-frame Airweight and it works as a pocket or IWB.

Looking at the pics here I was wondering if the eyelet in the corner was for a tether? I've seen some holsters that are basically tied to your belt and pull the holster free as you pull the gun. I can't figure out what else the eyelet would be for.

When thousands of a second count, you weren't paying attention. Situational Awareness is a tool to let you know something's up in time to react.

Pocket Kydex holsters are not from another planet, it is not an eyelet is a rivet to hold the holster sides together
