    Anyone carry or have carried a necklace holster?

    I'm getting a Kel-Tec P-32. In fact, it should be here today.

    The gun's light, a couple oz. lighter than a P-3AT, if you can imagine that. I'm guessing it'll be just a little heavier than my badge chain.

    So, I'm wondering if anyone here has, does, or had tried using one of those kydex neck-chain holsters. That or something similar to it. I'm sure there are leather ones out there, but with the kydex it's a simple pull (& maybe a twist), & you have the gun in your hand.

    So, anyone with any experience with those & how'd you like it, if at all? Thanks.

    I carry a NAA .22 derringer occasionally on a neck chain and hand made kydex holster. Other than the slight bump with some shirts , it seems to work well. A heavier gun might weight down more or hit harder if it swings under your shirt.

    I saw a neck-chain rig on Kel-Tec's website, I guess it would be documented at KTOG...

    The Kel-Tec P32 should be light enough that you could make that mode of carry work.

    Off Topic Addition:

    Be careful in selecting a neck holster for the NAA .22 - of the 2 styles that I've seen - one looks safe and the other - not so hot or secure.
    I don't have any pics but, you'll probably be able tell by looking.
    Both were Kydex.

    Yeah, I made mine so it doesn't point straight up at my face. also retention is good.

    Thumbs up Rocky

    I've seen some of your Kydex work and if you made your own then I'm certain that it's perfect.

    I never thought necklace carry would work well for me. Mainly because the necklace won't stay in the same place.
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    If I've got to reach into or up (under) my shirt to get to my weapon, I would rather wear a belly band or an undershirt with a holster-pocket (Kramer). I don't want to start (another) gun-selection discussion but, IMHO, any gun small enough to wear on a chain around my neck can be better carried elsewhere.

    It's a BUG, not a primary.

    I typically carry a Kahr PM9, Glock 19, or my Para LW LTC .45

    I am curious... can anyone provide a photo or a link? I have my doubts about this mode of carry.
