In Anchorage it would get a bit nippy every now and then. We were issued parkas.

The parka was designed with a side zipper that was suppose to allow you to keep your service revolver exposed. Sounded nice in theory but at the range I quickly found out the revolver always got hung up on the coat.

Parkas have rather large pockets so I just stuck a snubby in my pocket. Walked around with my hand in my pocket and on my revolver any time I figured I may need it.

Never fired in from the pocket, I figured practicing would cause me to have to buy a new parka and those puppy's were expensive. I figured it would beat getting a revolver hung up in a zipper if you needed it.

The thing is, like any other pocket carry, you can be ready and no one knows.
