Can I carry this way????

Post by leadhead2 » January 15th, 2012, 2:17 pm

Anything wrong with just sticking the gun between
your shirt and pants without any holster at all?
Mine sure feels better when I carry it this way.

Mexican carry

Here's an article on it.

It's not something I would do.

+1 on that!

The added security of solid retention is well worth any slight discomfort that using an IWB holster entails. Heck, if you look around a little, you can generally find a holster that gives you both solid retention and comfort.

Pocket carry (again, with a suitable holster) is another option to look into. An "Uncle Mike's" pocket holster in size 4 is a cheap yet effective option. It's how I choose to carry my P64, and I'm very satisfied with it.

Remora holster works for me and it fits similar P64 sizes.

The last thing I want to worry about is a piece sliding down my pat leg and ending up next to my crank and having to fish it out.

This may be a tad off topic, but I had to Google "Plaxico Burress". In doing so, I realize now what you meant. I do remember that news story, butt... I also came across another news story that makes Mexican Carry much better than this other option of carry! :shock:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/1 ... 08666.html

Perhaps Jay Leno should put it in one of his dumbest criminals segment! :lol:

By the way, Curly1 mentioned the Remora holster. I believe (if Curly1 will confirm) that the Remora holster size is the #7 (PA-63, Walther PPK/S, Sig 230/232). Remora also has an add on for protection against sweat. (SS option)

So in closing, I'd say no (or rather never to Mexican carry!) Below is an jpg attachment on how to spot most MC (Mexican Carriers).....or "Newbies" that just got their CHP/CWP and are still "self conscious" about it. Personally, I believe that retention is more important then deep concealment. (The above rectum news story is WAY too deep! :puke:

Nonetheless, Level 1 retention is, at least some kind of holster. MC is level 0 (zero). :roll: You can purchase a plethora of Nylon holsters, (and there are some really good ones), but they may, or may not meet your needs when it comes to "concealment and retention". Forum member dfunk makes some really nice Leather holsters specifically for the P-64. Unlike most holster makers, dfunk is an avid P-64 owner/enthusiast. (http://www.usgunleather.com/) Examples here:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2257

But....nothing with a Thumb Break. :cry: Perfect fit and finish, fits the P64 like a surgeon's glove, Geezz...I want a thumb break on even an ankle holster! I kid you not. Retention!

Oh well. ... again, "NO MEXICAN CARRY! ..Mercy!! LOL :shock:
