Never trifle with a man who wears a purple coat with holes in the pockets
James with TFB TV plays some pocket pool with the use of a tiny purple coat and a Ruger LCRx (with an external hammer) and a Kel-Tec P3AT to see if it is a realistic option for self-defense.
Taking the idea of a “pocket pistol” to the extreme, he tries to see if the concept of firing *through* a jacket pocket if needed is really a thing.
With a revolver, it’s a reasonable prospect, but hoping that the slide of a semi-auto will cycle inside a tight space is wishful thinking. Especially with the women’s medium coat that James is going to war with.
One thing not broached when dealing with pocket carry sans holster is the aspect that you are never really sure where the muzzle is until you reach into said pocket– and the trigger well is open to random key chains, pocket change, and boogers, so there is that.
On the bright side, at least the gun didn’t catch on fire. I did a similar thing with a Charter Arms Bulldog in .44SPL several years ago and wound up having to stop, drop and roll.
