    pocket holster for the P-3AT



    This is a new pocket holster i purchased. It has never come out of my pocket when i draw my kel tec. It's really thin but it works.I got it from www.bustertoe.com It's not made by the big boys but It works and it not Priced as high as Desantis or Galco. It was not a bad holster for 25 bucks.

    Thumbs up Pocket Holster for P-3AT or P32 that is awesome!!

    This is a little pocket holster I picked up at my local gun shop. Never seen anything like it before. This looks just like a wallet in my front pocket and unlike the claim by other holsters of staying in the pocket and allowing the gun to come out, it comes out every time with the gun and the gun still fires. I am trying to figure out how to incorporate a laser into the holster, but I love it!

    I believe that unless that is an older holster - it is illegal to have a pocket/wallet holster that allows you to shoot the gun w/o removing the gun from the holster. I think ya gotta pay that $5 fee and submit the required ATF paperwork to have permission to have that..

    At least that is what I read on another forum a year or 2 ago...

    Shipwreck is correct. A pocket holster with a gun in it that allows the gun to fire while still in the holster is considered an AOW ("Any Other Weapon") by BATFE and subject to the same rules as other Class III weapons. Even simple possession of the holster and a gun that will fit it, even if they are not actually physically connected, is likely enough to run the owner afoul of the BATFE.

    I had my concerns about the "Holdster" in this regard and this is what their web page states. http://artofthehide.com/

    The Holdster and the ATF

    The Holdster came to be out of simple frustration.
    I wanted a holster for my new (at the time) Kel-Tec
    P-32 and there were none to be found! I found
    several that would "work in a pinch" but none that
    were made for or fitted to the gun.
    So off to my shop I went and out came the
    Holdster. However, the very first FFL dealer I
    showed it to told me the story of the "forbidden"
    wallet holster and warned that I may be outside the
    law with my new design.
    The next step was to contact the local ATF office.
    They were very helpful in getting me pointed in the
    right direction and told me to send the design to
    the Firearms Technology Branch of the BATF in
    Washington for classification.
    The FTB-BATF classified the Holdster design as
    non-any other weapon (or not a wallet holster)
    primarily because it is "readily discernible as a
    weapon" due to the exposed slide. As long as it
    isn't modified to conceal the weapon over the slide
    it is legal to own and use in conjunction with a
    semi-automatic pistol without falling in the AOW
    classification.

    Agree with Hokie. It looks like a wallet and if I were held up I would show them the print and say it's my wallet and pull it out and say goodbye right between the eyes.

    So just what would be the difference if you just stick the gun (alone) in your pocket,which is not illegal?

    None - I'm just telling U that there is a law governing this. Don't ask me why.

    Desantis Nemesis pocket holster is great for the P3AT.

    BATFE says it's an AOW if it conceals the shape of the gun and allows it to be fired from the holster. Based on the post above, it seems BATFE has relaxed the standard a bit, which is a good thing.

    I do not know why anyone would ask for logic from a government agency.

    I LIKE that Uncle Mikes with the spare mag holder... And it has a laser on it too??

    I use a standard Unkle Mikes square pocket holster with mine. The band around the middle it tacky and sticks in the pocket. Works every time. $9.
