Mika Pocket Holster-Square or round?

Thanks to feedback and info searching here at TFL and other firearm forms I have decided that one of Robert Mika's holsters will be my next pocket holster.

He offers two choices, square bottomed and round bottomed. I am thinking that square would suite my purpose better, my thinking being that the square bottom will keep the rig positioned upright and not let it want to "roll."

Any feed back on the issue?
Thanks

I have a squared off Desantis "Nemisis" for my pistol and the backstrap sticks out about 1/4" of my Carharts back pocket. I am very consious about conceling garments covering the little bit exposed.

A rounded holster would allow it to roll and sit slightly lower. I plan on getting a Mika rounded holster when I get tired of my Nemisis. The draw would still be close enough, hooking the thumb under the grip.

Didn't get a whole lot of feedback here so I thought what the heck, just pick up the phone and ask the man himself.

He suggested for jeans/casual/docker type pants to go with the round, and for cargo type pockets or BDUs' to go with the square.

Great guy on the phone by the way.

I like the round, but I carry mainly in jeans and uniform pants.
