Someone on a thread recommended Mika's Pocket Holsters (http://www.frontiernet.net/~akim/pocket.htm). I'm thinking about getting one for my Bersa Thunder 380cc.

I noticed they have round-cut and square-cut models. I have no idea which one I should get. Is there a tactical advantage to one over the other? Does one print less? Are they for certain types of pockets, or is one more comfortable than the other? Anyone with a Mika or other type of pocket holster, please chime in.

The reason I was looking at Mika is because the quality seems good, and the price is hard to beat.:D

Get the shape that matches your pocket. If you have both types of pockets, get 1 of each.

Unless you're on an incredibly tight budget, get one of each! They're cheap compared to many of the leather holsters. I find that the round cut fits some pockets better and the square cut fits other pockets better.

I'm going to try one of these for my SIG http://www.copquest.com/14-1588.htm a friend of mine has one and even with baggy pants it stays in when you pull the pistol out. I have one of these http://www.unclemikes.com/products/inside_the_pocket_holsters.html (the one on the right). It doesn't stay in all the time. Have to push it down with my finger while pulling out the pistol. I think the one on the left would work better.

My 642 is in my Bob Mika in my front pocket as we speak. I got a round cut because most of my pants have that shaped pocket sleeve, but it works ok in square cut. I have never had my gun fail to draw clean from my Mika holster and I recommend it highly. Especially given how little he charges for them!

I have the round bottom, fits all my pants pockets no matter what I wear, also inner jacket pockets. From what I remember the square was made for certain dungerees ask mika he will tell you. No matter what you get it will never fail you.
