CCW Breakaway Holster Pants
So you carry your firearm with you in the world for protection. Everywhere you go people are safer because you are there. Odds are you either have it in a waistband holster, inside or outside, or concealed by a shirt, vest, or other item of clothing. If not then you have it in an ankle holster or pocket. Having your firearm just sitting in a pants or coat pocket is unreliable and even dangerous; you are setting yourself up for the Monkey Trap. The Monkey Trap where you reach into your pants pocket, then fish for a grip on your pistol, and struggle to pull what is now a fist holding a lump of metal, from this pocket. In addition, a handgun unsecured is a handgun lost, as it floats around, flips, spins, and can even become dangerous. It is more than possible that you can accidentally fire the weapon while playing pocket pool for it, it has actually happened.
One company has worked on this problem of eliminating waistband and ankle holsters while making your pockets weapon friendly: CCW Breakaway. The company has designed a line of clothing that turns your pants into holsters. The top edge of the pocket is actually a flap that is designed to break away (hence the name of the product). Its gathered at the waistband by two unseen snaps that, when pulled open, allow fast and easy access to the pocket. The second feature of the system is that deep inside that pocket is an adjustable fabric holster that securely holds your handgun in a correct position until needed. CCW refers to this as the Trigger Gun Shield or TGS and it is designed to both keep the fabric from bunching over the firearm and to dissipate and smooth the outline of the frame, to keep it from being a situation of “is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”
