    Any one use a Wallet Holster?

    I have a Beretta 950B 25acp that I have as a backup to my backup.
    I have a wallet holster for it and was wondering if any one else uses one of these things.

    If the wallet hides the pistol completely I believe it is illegal under federal law.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I had a Galco Wallet Holster for a Beretta .22 very similar to yours. I have been told they are not legal due to they completely cover the gun. Also they impinge on the slide enough to make the gun malfunction. I would advise you to remove this post ASAP.

    I remember thinking about getting one for a back-pocket BUG way back (like maybe 20yrs back) and just couldn't get over the fact that the trigger wasn't covered, which of course is essential to the design, and wondering how it would affect the slide - and I was shooting .25, I figure I'd want more than one shot!

    i thought they were only illegal if they couldnt be removed from the gun... but anywho cool holster. i can see the point behind them but i feel execution of design on these kind is kinda bad. i understand wanting it to print like a wallet but not necessarily looking exactly like a wallet. also i feel this would compromise the slide movment. how does it work for you? ive seen them but never operated a gun with one.

    I have an Uncle George for my LCP which I'll throw in my pocket in certain circumstances and I am very happy with it. I saw that other type being shown and wasn't too crazy about it.

    can someone quote the law that makes a fully concealed handgun illegal under federal law? This baffles me and blows my mind.. I have NEVER heard of such a thing.

    On a more related note to the OPs question, I do not use any holster of that sort.. NOT covering the trigger is one of the things a holster is SUPPOSED to do.

    I use a Desantis Superfly when I carry my LCP. Makes perfect sense to me. If a mugger confronts and demands my wallet he probably won't think anything of it when I reach to my back pocket to retrieve my wallet (LCP) for him. Imagine his surprise when he sees my wallet can shoot!

    I use a Guru wallet holster for my LCP from Pocket Holsters.com. I have the one with the zipper flap which conceals the gun but does not interfere with the draw when wearing Levi's or similar pants.

    If you want to conceal the outline of the gun in your pocket, use a pocket holster with an anti-print panel. The Desantis Superfly is one, the Guru holsters are another. I have several of the type made by Jim over at Hidden Holsters - Expertly Crafted Pocket Holsters. I highly recommend getting a thumb push-off, which is the reason I went with Jim - he was willing to add that, while the Guru folks were not.

    There was also another one recently posted here that was cheaper and more readily available, made of fabric instead of leather, IIRC. Also held a spare mag. Poke around and you will find it.

    here it is...http://www.maelwear.com/. (No thumb push off)

    The wallet holsters do not cover the trigger, and can interfere with running the gun, as has been mentioned. Don't do it.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    A wallet holster that conceals it is a a firearm and allows the pistol to be fired in the holster is an AOW. Legal if you pay the $5 and get your stamp, otherwise you could be in a world of hurt. Firearms - Guides - Identification of Firearms | ATF That should take you straight to the section on wallet holsters, if not, just scroll down to it.

    if you are going to use it i would take it to the range and shoot some rounds to see if it will work. it will hide the gun well. i use a hunter brand wallet holster. it stay in your back pocket when you draw the gun. hides the gun well, makes it look like your billfold.
