    Disguised holster

    I'm just more comfortable when wearing OWB. With cooler weather coming in, I was wondering if there exists a holster with the following traits, for use with short/medium length outerwear:

    1. Squared off or rounded at the bottom
    2. Not boned on the outside
    3. Bearing markings (I'm thinking Star of Life for EMS, or some other label, like a fictitious company or reference) or colors that would disguise it's use

    Something that might be seen as an accessory pack rather than the bottom of a gun holster, when an outer garment conceals the top. I remember seeing recently someone that customizes holsters, by way of putting a department shield on the outside, but it still looked like a holster.

    KD Holsters does put departmental logos on holsters, but as you said they still look like a traditional holster.

    Questions:

    What size pistol are we talking about?

    What environment are you wanting to carry in (on/off duty), casual attire?

    Depending upon the weapon size the case could be disguised as an instrument holster (hemostats,multitool, knife, scissors, pen light, etc....) with a gun pocket.

    Is speed a concern with access to the weapon?

    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.

    "safepacker". Do a search on here for that. There's a recent thread on it, and it sounds like it may be what you're looking for.

    H&K USP full size.

    Off duty. On duty potentially, if employment circumstances change, or if I start doing volunteer work again.

    Speed is not an overwhelming concern.

    I see where you are going here. On one hand, I'd like a semi-traditional holster (waist up traditional, waist down "camo"), but a full "camo" holster definitely has it's merits, something like a geek pack with a surprise. I bet that would be hard to pull off with my HK USP without looking like Batman with compensation problems!

    I used to use a bagmaster (www.bagmaster.com) that fit the bill well, but the zipper broke and I haven't replaced it. Plus I really didn't like the way the zipper was set up (hard to set up for the presentation), the floppiness of one metal clip, and the difficulty of on/off. Now with another type of holster, where the top of the gun is concealed but could be accessed easily, and there were "camo" props/designs on the front of the holster, that would be awesome, and probably applicable to a great many CCWers.

    USP is pretty big but it can be done, let me do some drawing and see if I can figure out a good setup, or if I see something that fits your needs I will shoot you a link.

    I took a laptop accessory case and had some nylon straps sewed on for belt loops for this purpose. With zipper opened on the top it's almost like an open carry holster. This link should take you to 6 or 7 Pics about it.
