    Need a New option for my P3AT

    I am a youth pastor and carry a firearm almost all of the time. I have as of late been carrying my P3AT more while I am waiting on a new holster for my M&P but I had an issue come up today and would like to reconsider my P3AT holster situation. I usually carry it in a pocket holster, but tonight as I had to physically restrain a student tonight and I felt as though the gun, holster and all, were going to fall out of my pocket.

    Any ideas of better ways of carrying this.

    Tough situation. I carry my P3AT in my pocket 95% of the time, but sometimes I carry it in an ankle holster and it works really well for me. Being a youth pastor you sure don't want a gun falling out of your pocket.

    I carry a Ruger LCP in my weak side front pants pocket in a DeSantis Super Fly pocket holster. Running, jumping and climbing the wall with my feet (weird exercise) does not cause the LCP to fall out. The holster is made of a rubberized fabric that holds to the pocket well but allows a smooth draw.

    I hope this helps.

    Ankle Carry is out, i just moved to Texas and have been wearing shorts all the time.

    I like the neck scabbard and may end up getting that. If I go IWB i will have to go tuckable because due to my normal attire.

    You might consider a belly band. The small size, light weight, and incredibly thin design of the P3AT make it perfect for a BB. Some have retaining straps to insure that you could wrestle Hulk Hogan without fear of loss. Presentation may be faster than smart carry or ankle as well. I don't like the neck scabbard due to the tendency for the pistol to move around too much. I like my EDC to be stable.

    I have a Ruger LCP (which is basically the same gun) that I most frequently carry in a Galco Ultimate Second Ammendment. It's tuckable as well.

    For me (a little on the chunky side at 5'7" 205#) It conceals under a t-shirt. If I'm frisky and feel like going for a run at night...I just throw on some shorts that have a belt-loop and have no problem jogging with the gun in this holster.

    For pocket carry I have a Desantis Nemesis and a wallet-type holster from pocketholsters.com I like them both, but each has its favorite items in my wardrobe. It just depends on what I'm wearing.

    All due respect to Chooie....
    NO, NO, NO! Put on a 20" chain with dog tags, then drop on your back. where's your dog tags? Plus the chain it hangs on is designed to break away, so someone grabs your shirt... chain breaks and your pistol is on the ground. BAD. Try a kydex holster with some velcro to keep the pistol in your pocket.

    Repeat after me, NO neck carry.

    If you have a good pocket holster, you can roll around on the ground and it won't come out.

    High Noon has a few IWB choices for them. I like mine- hate having stuff in my pockets, but sometimes hard to go with anything bigger.

    With that in mind, then, why not consider a UC Comfort t-shirt holster?
