    I have a Ruger .38 special LCR. I carry it in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster.
    It works just fine in my Wrangler jeans or my Dockers. I'm 6' tall & weigh 225#'s.
    I'm not huge. You can't tell it is a gun, in my pocket. I can tuck my shirts and it is still concealed.
    I also have a "Simply Rugged" silver-dollar pancake holster, I use for belt carry. But generally if it's belt carry It's my Ruger SP101 .357 in a Galco high ride pancake holster. In order to conceal it I wear my shirt tail untucked.

    i am unsure exactly how i want to carry my 38. when i carry it as my primary i would like a strong side belt holster. but i think for backup i would like a cross draw holster worn at the 8oclock position with the gun being drawn wild bill style

    sometimes i carry an naa mini in the pocket, but in general i have all kinds of stuff in my pockets, too much to carry a gun comfortably
