    KelTec P3-AT Belt Clip

    I will soon be receiving a Kel Tec P3-AT mouse gun. I have been looking at the belt clip accessory. The clip mounts to the pistol, you then carry it IWB with no holster. If you draw, the belt or pants acts as a barrier between your trigger finger and the trigger. There is nothing but undergarmets between the pistol and your body.

    It looks like the system will work just fine.

    Anyone have any experience with this arrangement and have any comments?

    I've got a belt clip, but I rarely use it. IWB, it sits too low to get your hand on easily, and in a pocket, IMHO, a pocket holster works better.

    I have the belt clip also but use it as a boot clip instead, very secure and convenient when an ankle holster will not fit.

    It doesn't protect the trigger. Putting it on, and removing it without the trigger protected is hazardous. I also have the P3AT. I got the clip, and loaded it with snap caps. After trying to put it on several times in different clothing and situations, my shirt caught in the trigger and snagged enough that I pulled the trigger while trying to fix it. I got rid of the clip in under a week, and picked up a good pocket holster that covers the trigger. The clip is just fancy Mexican carry - not very recommended IMHO.

    - I had the factory clip on my Kel-Tec P32 for a few years. I didn't carry it that often, but I really liked it when I did carry it. If you have good drawing discipline and trigger control, it should be fine.

    - I've never had that problem with any shirt. I carry my other guns in holsters, but the Kel-Tec has a really long trigger pull and I've never even come close to catching the trigger on clothing. I usually do carry my larger firearms in a IWB holster simply because it's more stable and doesn't shift.

    I've used the pocket clip, but prefer using a pocket holster

    I have one on my KT P11 and have nary an issue with it
    All my other Handguns are in holsters though. The KelTec is sooo light, you can get away with it.I have used it with shorts and a crummy belt with no problems.
