    I've carried a S&W J-frame in a DeSantis Super Fly® pocket holster for years and never had a problem with excessive lint. Maybe the material or construction of the holster has some bearing on this.

    Is your daily work environment dirty/dusty? What pocket holster do you use? Do you use any surface lubricant on your pistol?

    I ask about the pocket holster because I've noticed less lint build-up since I switched from a Mika to an Aholster kydex holster.
    I don't use any surface lubricant on the outside of the gun. My work environment is an office building, so no dust/dirt. I use a Tucker Gun Leather pocket holster. It is similar to this one: http://cdn2.bigcommerce.com/server14...87.220.220.gif

    I was getting crud built up in the barrel of my Glock so I cleaned it off and sprayed it with a dry film lube.

    A decent Kydex pocket holster should eliminate this. Not a big problem

    I just use an air duster and blow the dust off occasionally. I also disassemble it and clean it regularly.

    But I do like the suggestions of flipping my pockets inside out to get the lint out.

    My LCP is my lazy day gun. It's my running out the door, I need something kind of gun. Primary is a Glock 23.

    I use Dupont dry lube on my Seecamp and have no lint problems. I don't carry in a holster. I wouldn't use it on a gun I shot a lot but does fine for 6 shots. GH

    I pocket carry a kahr pm9 all day every day. It can go at least a month before it gets enough buildup to make me feel the need to clean it, and its never stopped it from working.
