Castle Doctrine only pertains to your home, workplace, and maybe vehicle (I think this is primarily if you work from your car/in some states, they consider it either way... I know PA was recently looking to add legislation about having the car considered under that too)...

Read the details... From what I learned in my handgun classes, you had to surrender personal property... I'll keep looking for more info.

Try They have one called the Trickster. It prints like a wallet in the back pocket but it holds a small auto. I think it only fits
.22's and .25's. Good for a backup piece though.

I have one for my Seecamp .32, which I carry in my back pocket for the months I'm not wearing a jacket. (otherwise it's usually a G27 in a Hi-Ride Belt-Slide)
The Seecamp holster has a hard leather flap like described in post #7 that prints like a wallet. A friend of mine has one of the old shoot-through type for a .25 auto, but he dosen't take it out of the house anymore because they've been outlawed. I used to see ads for these in the gun mags, but not anymore. I think the ATF banned them so it's a federal law, not just a state law.

Zappa is correct. The wallet holsters that disguised a gun, and permitted it to be fired while still in leather, are treated by the ATF as a NFA firearm (pen gun, flashlight gun, etc) they require registration as an AOW, payment of Fed taxes, etc. And frankly, if someone is holding a weapon on you, your are NOT likely to "get the drop" on them. Most people that get mugged are 3-5 seconds into the mugging before reality seeks in. Pay attention to what is going on around you. Scale model firearms (25 autos, 22s, etc) have sharply limited stopping power.

Default Shoot-through pocket wallet holster

I saw this at a local gun show. They wanted way to much, so I looked on-line for it. Saw a posting that raised the question is it a legal holster.

I think you might be misunderstanding/mis-stating Castle Doctrine. Castle Doctrine refers to the right to defend yourself in your home. (Home is expanded in some states to include place of business, car, or any place (structure) you legally occupy.)

The "right to stand your ground" is within these structures. It used to be the case that even within your own home you had to retreat if it was being invaded and could only use deadly force if you no longer had the ability to retreat.

It is very different from state-to-state. In most states, you are permitted to protect yourself and others, but not your property.

Very few states allow you to "protect your property". Texas is one that comes to mind. If I am not wrong, you are allowed to use deadly force to protect your property in Texas. This might be folded into their Castle Doctrine, but it is not Castle Doctrine itself.

I'd rather choose the right firearm for my needs, choose the most effective pocket holster, and carry my wallet on my off-hand side.

Then, when I am forced to give up my wallet, my off hand pulls the wallet (distraction), while my strong hand is drawing my firearm.

At least, this is how I carry and just hope that I never have to actually try this shenanigan out for real.
