    look at the uncle mikes pocket holster for the small auto. that's what i use. the one/size that they make for the p3at is somewhat bigger than the small auto. the small auto works best. also, i would get the belt clip. i use the belt clip 95% of the time. the uncle mikes will work in the front and/or back pockets with ease.

    Thanks for the reply, frankmako. On the beltclip,is it something that affects holstering the weapon/drawing the weapon(if I did decide to pocket carry,for instance.) I don't know about trusting the belt-clip,kinda creeps me out. I don't like "installing" things on my weapon,either.

    <--picky newbie

    Mikes #1 is the size most use for the P3.

    There are others folks generally like better ... DeSantis for ex.

    the kel tec belt clip is well made and you not have any problems with it. it is one of the strong points of the kel tec pistols. i have one on my p3at and p11. i also have the clip draw on my s&w model 60, my "bug" on duty. the p3at is the weekend gun. i carry a gun by belt clip all most everyday. easy to draw or to put back in place. a t-shirt will cover the above guns with a belt clip on. a regular shirt or jacket will allso do the job. they are easy to install and will not hurt/mess up our gun.

    yes you are correct about uncle mike #1 for the p3at,,,,but the size 0 (small auto) works better. the gun fits the same, but less holster,,, this makes the pocket carry better.

    My vote is for the DeSantis Nemesis, it looks kinda cheesy but it sure does work. Holds up like a champ, stays where its supposed too, and it's cheap. Take it over the Uncle Mikes anyday and twice on Sunday.

    Thumbs up JS Holster

    I would recommend this pocket holster; I just got mine the other day for the P-3AT. It doesn't look like much, but it works great after doing the wax paper break-in. It covers the gun perfectly so that it looks like a wallet, in fact it is the exact dimensions of my wallet. Since it's formed from one piece of leather flapped over, it is thinner and less bulky that some pocket holsters that use an additional flap of leather as an anti-print panel. Once I got it broken in, it stays in the front right pocket no problem.

    Here is an idea for carrying a spare mag. I'm not a fan of the holsters that carry a spare in the same pocket as the gun. This is really low profile and this size will just fit the P-3AT mags.

    IMHO-There simply is no better pocket holster than a Milt Sparks PCH for carrying in the front pocket of blue jeans. I carry an NAA sometimes and forget that it's even there!

    Two suggestions:

    First is BearClaw Holsters 'Inside Job':



    Second suggestion is Mika from Mika's Pocket Holsters - soft and designed to keep moisture away from the gun.

    Both of these designs are innovative for their unique features.

    I sometimes keep a KelTec P-3AT in my front pocket.

    Before you buy...

    Check out Fist Holsters (see Related Links)...Kydex holsters...see kydex holster #5...the holster fits the front pocket, molds to the thigh...DOES NOT TIP in the pocket, and most importantly is the thumb push...

    Only the gun comes out...other pocket holsters require one to catch the holster 'hook' on the pocket as you draw...the Fist holster is superb and make the pocket draw...SMOOTH & EASY...

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    I use the pocket holster from http://www.pocketholsters.com/ .

    I installed the belt clip and P32 / P-3AT Grip Extension (ACCESSORY # 309) from Kel Tec.

    In jeans the pocket holster works great (back pocket); I rode the Harley for miles the other day with no problem.

    Itís been kind of warm this week, so Iíve been warring shorts, and carrying it in my front pocket using the belt clip, or on my side and pull the T-shirt out a little to cover it. In the front pocket it looks like a pocket knife, so itís a good conceal, but not as pleasurable to carry it that way.

    Got a Nemesis for my P3AT. Loved it! When I put the Armalaser on I took out the stitching and it still works great. Still love it!
