Holster advice for KelTec P3AT
« on: December 17, 2011, 04:13:52 pm »
I guess this is where the concealed carry threads go now...?

My sister's suitor went out and bought himself a P3AT for 'pocket carry.'  This is his first CCH.  He asks me for advice about carrying, so I told him to shoot it a bit to determine reliability.  I also want to reccommend a good holster for pocket carry.

I need somethning that he can get now, as opposed to later, so Adams Holsters is not an option.  At least for now.

So... what are some good options?

    Desantis Nemesis or Superfly.
    I have my P11 in a Nemesis for now.
    He can also look into a remora.

    I have a P32 and have a "Mr. Softy" that has been perfect. It is a IWB but is very affordable and well-made. http://www.highnoonholsters.com/Product_Line/_Mr_Softy/_mr_softy.html

    For pocket carry I was using a Uncle Mikes pocket holster (a #1 I think) and it worked well. I gave it to a friend for use with his P3AT and it works well for it too. But I am probably going to get a DeSantis Nemesis to replace it with.

    I have carried mine for several years using Kel-tec's clip that they make that attaches directly to the gun (right hand side). you remove a pin and simply bolt it on. However I carry it inside my waistline and not my pocket. if you carry it inside the pocket without some form of holster to "protect" it you will find  yourself periodicaly mining all of the pocket lint out of it. Good luck

    I would second the uncle mikes for a quick fix if he is licensed or capable to carry it now...after he has put a couple hundred rounds through it including carry ammo..something I always tell people to do with these small .380's



    coincidentally, I picket up another LCP with the lasermax unit yesterday...the LGS had them on sale the same price as the normal LCP without the unit....the uncle mike is the only holster I currently have that will fit the laser unit as well as the pistol..

    The Nemesis is the standard by which other holsters are judged. That's not to say they're the best, but they're very good and widely available. I've not used the Uncle Mike's version, but I'm not terribly impressed with their stuff in general. They may have gotten this one right, though, as it is a fairly simple concept to design and execute.

    Depending on what pocket he's looking for etc I could probably hook you up with something sooner than the lead time. I think I've got 2-3 LCP/P3AT pocket rigs around that are ready to go out the door within a day or two. More less rigs that I built either for the gun show, or for myself or Sarah cut the wrong pattern etc;)

    So depending on which pocket he's looking for right or left etc, I probably have something that will work for him pretty much now;)

    Take care!

    Never mind.  He got himself an ankle holster, and decided that he likes that method of carry better.  ::)

    Well if he decides to change his mind again never hurts to give me a shout, sometimes I've got things around here that aren't on the site;)

    Take care!
