    I purchased a Galco pocket holster from Chuck's Firearms in Buckhead a while back for a Kel-Tec minipistol.

    Has anybody else noticed how much slower it is to draw from a pocket holster than just from a pocket?

    I mean, it is comfortable, and it hides the outline, but wow it is a slow draw.

    I prefer the slide clip for the Kel-tecs. I tried a pocket holster about 30 years ago, and I used it occasionally but never really took a shining to it.

    Get an Uncle Mikes it won't hid the profile as well but should let you get a better grip on the pistol.

    my deSantis nemesis front pocket holster isn't that way. The inside is lined with tincloth which makes it slick and quick as I can draw from it. The outside is a viscous material that holds to my pocket. One great holster ! :)

    It is getting faster with practice. Pocket carry will never be quickdraw McGraw . . .

    The inside should be smooth leather, w/ the rough side being outside. If it bothers you, try putting some clear floor paste wax (Johnson's is what I use) on the inside. It will not hurt your gun, and it should slick up the draw a touch until the holster breaks in.

    I bought a used Galco pocket holster, and have no problems at all w/ my KelTec.
