Wouldn't it be nice if there was a custom-made cargo shorts w/ a built-in holster? or something to that effect? I would love to carry my 1911 gov't. model around in summertime, but all my shorts are too wimpy to hold it up. Is there a company that makes something to that effect?

Company's like 5.11 tactical make some thing like that I think. If they do it wont be cheep, but you might want to try looking into 5.11. I'll see what I can find, but till then good luck.

Why doesn't a good purpose made belt and good holster not work?

Just because I run around in flip flops, shorts and t-shirts in summer doesn't mean I'm not carrying either of my Kimber's comfortably.

Yep Denim pants $49.99 two concealed carry pockets hidden in the waist. And I don't have time to check the shorts right now but I'm sure they have some of the same features, and most of the shorts are in the $40-$50 price range.

Good point I know a guy that carries a full size Glock around, wearing shorts and flip flops all the time.

The material of the shorts will influence the effectiveness and comfort of your belt and holster. The stiffer the denim/material the more form support is offered.

When I wear my Wranglers, my gear stays in place and stays more comfortable for longer. When I wear my khaki shorts, not as much comfort and support to my gear.

Try looking for a seamstress or tailor in your area.
The can modify, add pockets, etc.. very economically and you can have a tailor fit.

Any concealed carry method has pros & cons. "Pocket carry" comes with it's own particular pros & cons, so it's important to research the particulars of carry modes and test them to see how they work.


I doubt you can get the level of retention and security in a hidden pocket that you can with a good belt and holster.


Don't forget the ever important accessibility.

I mean, if we are going to be effective with with our tools, getting them into action is probably the most important factor.

You might be surprised at how safe and secure it is.
