    PT-92 concealed holster options?

    Ok to start off, i know the pt92 is a little large for ccw... But, its the only handgun i have right now and i would really like to find a concealable holster for it. Now it does have the rail, and ive read many times that it can fit in beretta 92 vertec holsters if that helps at all.

    Ive found a desantis pancake owb holster for the vertec. And an IMI DEFENSE serpa-like holster. Ill post links shortly, but the IMI looks like it sticks out a bit because its a roto holster. And i dont know if im completely sold on the desantis thumb break holster...

    My question is, do any of you ccw this gun or the 92fs, and what do you use/what works well in terms of concealability?

    First of all...................Welcome from Tennessee........the "Patron State of Shootin' Stuff!"

    You can find a plethora of holsters here: http://www.midwayusa.com/find?userSe...=PT+92+Holster

    The one shown below is one I have used for other models in the past, and it has worked well for me.

    Many years ago I carried one of these when they first came out. Though it is a large frame semi-auto it is still fully capable of being a CCW for your. Just choose your wardrobe accordingly and you will be okay. I normally used a light shirt to cover things up, and I made sure it was a little long to help matters.

    Certain holsters can cause issues. I normally lean toward holsters that don't have retaining straps, but offer retention via other means. There are plenty of holsters that are along these lines at the link I posted. Additionally, I don't carry a sidearm with a safety engaged (unless it is a 1911 style). I know a lot of folks that feel better doing this, which is fine. One just has to make sure that you remember to disengage the safety if you every have to draw your side arm. Not remembering to disengage a safety could possibly be a fatal mistake in all honesty. A properly fitted holster will provide you with a safe method of carrying your sidearm without the need to engage a manual safety. The choice is yours of course, but with proper selection this kind of carry method is literally done every day.

    And heres a link to the IMI, i really like the retention button on this one and the roto versatility, but im worried it will stick off my waist to far. It comes with a paddle but you can also get a belt clip for it.

    Any thoughts on shoulder holsters? I kinda like them, and i usually wear a sweatshirt jacket or my riding jacket when im out unless its REALLY hot out. I think they wouldbe more concealable than OWB holsters. But how comfortable are they and how quick to draw from and reholster? The pictures ive seen of some look like they just kinda dangle around.

    Drawing from a holster can be done fairly rapidly with practice. Reholstering with the models I have seen and use is a different story, and mostly requires the use of two hands. They are comfortable, and in my opinion more comfortable than a IWB. The best shoulder rig I know of is the Miami Classic by Galcom. As to the two holsters you provided the links to, both are really good. I like the paddle holster personally, but just a bit than the OWB from Desantis. The rig from Desantis should incorporate a relief in the fitting of the leather for the safety if it is specifically made for it.

    Well the desantis is actually for a beretta vertec, and the safety was another thing i was worried about. It looks more concealeable than the IMI and i like the leather, but idk if the safety would work... Ill prolly try the IMI from amazon and if its too bulky either return it or save it for the end of the world when i dont need to conceal it lol

    You should be able to use a horizonal rig. There are a lot out there for the 1911 and its clones so there should be one out there for the PT-92. Below is a rig I found on Midway that would work. It's a Bianchi X16 Agent Shoulder Holster. It should work nicely for the PT-92.

    Thanks! Ill definitely check that one out.

    on the subject of paddle holsters, how well do they stay in place when running or being active? would it be wise to get the belt clip as well?

    The majority of paddle holsters that I have tried have worked perfectly. I have extensive experience with Fobus holsters and have never had an issue. I also have a Blackhawk CQC that works perfectly as long as you are use to the release mechanism. BladeTech is also another brand I would venture to recommend to others. The trick to paddle holsters is the anchoring system. To be reliable the anchor point, or hook, needs to be substantial in order to grab the clothing. Any of these I mentioned will fill the bill for you. I have seen some negative comments occasionally regarding Fobus, but they are 100% of me. The Israeli military uses them and that should say something. They are in combat everyday and if they didn't work they would not be using them.

    Would you trust a paddle holster on a motorcycle?

    And do you know for sure if that bianchi shoulder holster you posted will hold the pt92 with the rail? apparently the rail is a somewhat new addition and theres not alot of holster made for the pt92 that can accommodate the rail.
