That carrying a .38 in your pocket makes "you look like a potato smuggler". :-) I don't consider a 1.5" thick bulge in my pocket to be "concealed".
Depends on the pocket.
J Frame Smith, Mod. 60, .357 magnum, snubby, in a Galco IWB holster. I don't wear the holster, I stick it in my pocket so that the hardware doesn't wear holes in the pocket. I bobbed the hammer.
Fits fine in most any jacket, but this goes in the leather motorcycle jacket, and doesn't look like I'm smuggling potatoes.
