    I ordered a Vedder pocket holster, as that will be my initial method of carrying this pistol (that I do not have yet). I may go somewhere else with it down the road, but for now, pocket carry will be my primary method of carry for it.

    When you buy a new gun and you think you are getting a great deal. You donít think about the other accessories you need to go with it. Itís like my wife buys a dress and now needs a new hang bag, shoes, jewelry that go with it. It all adds up.

    Well done. I waited until I had several hundred rounds through my P365 before ordering the first holster since I didn't know if it would be a keeper or not. It is definitely a keeper and is crowding my G43 as favored warm weather carry gun.

    I now have two holsters for the 365, one is a Vedder IWB and the other is a Blackpoint Sig specific OWB. I like them both a lot.

    May you shoot your 365 in good health.

    Litespeed, I've shot my wife's P365 enough (200+ rounds) to know that I like it a lot. It won't be my primary carry, but I generally have to "dress up" two mornings a week and I will pocket carry it then.

    Hey Raven..... Youíve obviously tried pocketing your wife's 365....you didnít find it to be too big for pocket carry? I havenít tried one yet but Iíve been curious as to pocketability.....

    With the 10 round magazine it sees quite doable. That's without a holster, but based on my experience with the P938, I think it will work well. Obviously, the P365 weighs more and that's a non-starter for some people. My Vedder holster for the P365 will show up this week and I will get a better idea how this is all going to work.

    My usual routine is a gun for my birthday, & a gun for Christmas. This year I had that covered X2 by June! Four firearms, & neither event has come to pass YET! Oh well! I have had to wait for a quality holster for the pistol in the bunch. Will probably be another horsehide VM-2 from Milt Sparks.

    A caveat to my prior response: It depends on what type of pants you wear. As I think you know, I normally wear 5.11 Taclite Pros or their new Apex pants (not because I am tacticool, but because I like how the pants wear, the location of the pockets, etc.) Although the sizing on their pants is very consistent, the sizing of their pockets vary a bit. I was able to easily draw the pistol from the pocket and I don't believe there will be much, if any, difference with the holster.

    The Vedder holster I ordered will be here tomorrow, so I should be able to give you further information later this week. Stay tuned!

    OP - I started with a BBF Make kydex IWB holster worn at 3:30, but just for expediency I've also stuck the darn thing into my right front pocket in an old Uncle Mike's holster and I've been pleasantly surprised how well it rides there. Of course, it's best pocket carried in big, baggy shorts or plaid shorts (yes, I've got a couple pairs of those, thanks to my wife's admiration of me in plaid :-)).

    This little gun has impressed me quite a bit. I bought a second one and equipped it with a Streamlight TLR-6, for which I bought another carbon fiber IWB holster and it also works well for early morning walks or times when I'm out at night. I've shot them both in IDPA matches with excellent reliability and even made some good shots with the guns. They are so darned good that I'm in the process of selling my last Glock, a 26.5, in order to consolidate mags, etc.

    You're doing the right thing. Trust me ...

    Oh yes! Magazines, lots of magazines, mag carriers, holsters for different occasions, etc. etc. etc.
