i don't carry one, but I have known some who do. I could NEVER tell that they had it.
Its a Keltec... It does what it was designed to do.

I have a Don Hume wallet holster. Great concealment, but can measure the time it takes to draw quickly using a calendar. Slooooooowwww... I use it for carry when conditions aren't good for carrying my 1911 or my G19, and it works well for that. Not a fast draw option!
You want concealed?
Search out Fist holsters through the 'Related Links' above.
Find the #5A kydex pocket holster with the 'thumb push'...it's the perfect pocket holster.

The LCP has a similar form factor. It is my EDC BUG. I carry it in a DeSantis Super Fly. The Super Fly has a flap to disguise it as a wallet. I don't use the flap. Most men carry a lot of junk in their pockets. No one has every suggested I was carrying a gun.

i use the uncle mikes small auto size zero for back pocket carry and the belt clip for other carry. both work well and i have never had any problems.

Use a GOOD pocket holster and not skin tight pants, and you'll be fine. I like the DeSantis Super Fly best, having tired others. It has a side panel that totally blocks out any outline or printing, yet it does not fall off like some others I've tried. It also is made a material that binds in the pocket, so only the gun is drawn and not your gun, still stuck in its holster.

Doesn't get any smaller or more concealable than that. I can present this faster out of my pocket than I can my primary at 3 oclock.
If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

I wish I could find a P3AT for a decent price. They're impossible to find here.
As a lefty, back pocket carry doesn't work that well for me (tend to depress the magazine release!). But I prefer front pocket carry anyway. I have a DeSantis Nemesis and a Milt Sparks PCH for front pocket. Love the Sparks! Carried it yesterday in some pretty tight 501's, you could barely tell there was anything in the pocket. In looser jeans, it disappears completely.
Click here. (ETA Note: Search results wouldn't show. You will need to type P3AT in search box). If nothing else, this will give you a good idea what they are selling for. If you find a deal you like, have it transferred to a local FFL for a minimal fee. That's how I buy most of mine these days.
