Wallet holster

Can anyone tell me where I could find one of these wallet holsters? I've searched the Internet high and low with no luck.

THAT is not a wallet holster. It is made by Sneaky Pete Holsters and it is technically an OWB that hangs on your belt. An example of a wallet holster would be something similar to what he talks about in the below video:

Yeah,
Using that holster with the flap covering the gun - inside your pocket would make access to the gun very difficult. When you needed you gun you'd have to take the thing out of your pocket and open it up ...
Not good.

Thank you for responding, I guess that's why I couldn't find it o the Internet searching under wallet holster. I currently have a wallet holster from www.holsterpro.net but am running into problems with my pockets being too short and the firearm sticking out a little. With the slide showing on these holsters that's a problem. However I see the problem with trying to draw from your pocket with a Sneaky Pete. I like the idea of it clipping on your belt to look like a cell phone case though, I think I'll have to try one out :)

Actually, you have another problem. ATF classifies guns in "wallet holsters" which have trigger holes allowing them to be fired while in the holster as an "Any Other Weapon" and require a tax stamp to posses them.

Note this only applies to such holsters with the gun in them so manufactures are free to make and sell the empty holsters.

I have a letter from the ATF stating wallet holsters are legal, so long as the top of the slide is exposed so you can clearly tell it is a firearm. So the one I have is legal to carry.

Gents- you are both correct. A holster that conceals the appearance of a firearm, AND permits the gun to be fired while still concealed is an NFA Any Other Weapon.

An example made a few years back look like a wallet, with a round hole cut in one side. Wrapped completely around a Hi Standard 22 Magnum derringer- and allowed you to fire it by sticking your finger into the hole. while pistol was still wrapped up in holster.

Pockets are great for pocket change, or pocket knives, or pocket lint, but there are better ways to carry defensive firearms.
