Sitting On Your Gun

A friend of mine carries his Kel-Tec P3AT holstered in his back pocket all day. I like the idea of carrying in this position because for me it is quicker to get to, rather than fumbling around in my somewhat snug front pocket. Only thing that concerns me is whether it is okay to sit on my firearm since it is in the rear pocket. My main concern of course is a negligent discharge. But I’m sure there may be other factors that I am not considering.

Anyone have any experience with back pocket carry, good or bad?

I am 5’9” and 145 pounds. I have gone through countless holsters trying to find one that doesn’t show the weapon. My preference for carry is a PT145 Millennium, it is a pretty small pistol, but is nearly impossible to hide without a loose cover garment. In all honesty, even my little 380 Bodyguard is a beast to conceal. The problem being that inside the waistband (IWB) or standard still will appear that I am lopsided. Has anyone found a good carry holster for a smaller person, or am I eternally the guy wearing button down shirts in the middle of summer?

I want to get into reloading .40 S&W. I currently don’t have any reloading supplies unless you count some once-fired brass. What would I need to get started reloading in this caliber, and how much should I expect to spend getting the stuff I’ll need?
