This is what my dad carries his LCP in every day. He had it for three months before I ever knew he was carrying the gun. Just looked like a wallet in his pocket. You can also fire the gun without removing it. He has carried in both front and rear pockets.

Is it a good idea to be able to fire it while still in the holster? How does the system work?

I want to know how that protects the trigger.

Masterpiece arms MPA380 is really small. The downsizer is small but is a single shot and probably not very accurate, but won't print the shape of a pistol.

This is the deepest carry pistol I own. This one is on Gun Broker now, not mine.

Put in Pen Pistol in the search function at gun broker.

Can have it sticking out your shirt pocket, and no one would ever guess.

BATF does not like this handgun, and every maker that has tried to make it, is badgered into not making any more.

Mine is from American Derringer in Waco TX. Made in the early 90's.

Have you considered a 5.11 holster shirt? Seems to be a good option for deep carry, especially with a .380. Pocket holsters seem awkward to me, but then again I've never used one. I like to carry my 738 iwb at 1:00 and I've never had an issue printing.

When you pull the gun from your pocket your fingers just fit right in. The slide is exposed so it operates like normal when fired.

The trigger is deep enough in the "wallet". It is no more exposed than any other time. My dad has carried his this way for over a year and never had an issue. The LCP has such a long trigger pull I don't know that the trigger could get pulled by accident. Not saying that it couldn't happen, just don't see it happening.
