    Any thoughts on the Sneaky Pete line of holsters. They look interesting.

    Anything specific you didn't like about it? I know they're kinda pricey.

    I bought one for my Khar P-380. Never used it!
    Still too large a balky for my liking. I assumed it would be much smaller. I still have it and it is in a drawer here somewhere?
    So what do I think of them Not Much!

    B32751C5-3457-4CFF-90F1-6C74D327A746.jpeg I owned a Sneaky Pete.

    PROS. It is worn OWB. Carrying IWB is the last resort for me.
    Has twin belt loops. Very desirable, keeps it from twisting.
    The gun stays upright, due to an insert.
    Leather is a better disguise than ballistic nylon.

    CONS. Very limited utility for a subcompact holster. If you wear blue jeans or dungarees or shorts, you have pockets. If you wear a suit or a jacket, you have a chest pocket for better concealment. And it is pricey.
    I resold mine like new because I never wore it.

    The Bulldog (bottom) is similar in size. But my choice is the nameless purse (top). It’s soft leather, twin loops, and it accommodates a Ruger LCP with the pinky extension.

    PS. Sorry about the pic. It drives me crazy but when they want to load sideways, they will.

    Aren't they supposed to look like cellphone holsters or something? Not to dis on your picture, but I can't make heads or tails of it.

    Still doesn't make sense to me. Where do the pistol go? The little square pouch looks like it was made for a cell phone?

    Probably so. The pistol fits in the main zippered compartment.

    I think the Sneaky Pete will attract some attention. It is large and looks different. Not a total giveaway but a hint.
    I also use a guitar case to transport rifles.

    I don't like IWB holsters and I like the idea of being able to carry a weapon openly but concealed. I don't feel the need to carry very often but I think this Sneaky Pete holster would work for me.

    Note how it blocks the front pocket. You will shift it constantly to get in.

    There are also opinions on whether it’s good to carry occasionally. But that’s for another time if you’re interested.

    Fortunately the only thing I carry in that pocket is my car keys. Since my car has the push button start (I'll never adjust to that) I don't have to dig in the pocket for the keys.

    Last fall TLMrs and I went to Tennessee to visit her aunt and uncle. Their car you just had to be near it with the key for the door to unlock, then push a button to start. We were going in somewheres, the auntie put her purse in the trunk and shut it, we turned to go. I said "Are your car keys in the purse?"
    "yes"
    "Well can't I just get in your car and start it?"
    "I dunno, try it"
    I did. It worked. "We've been doing that for 6 years!" they said.
    Good thing there's dumb crooks in TN.

    Along those same lines. My nephew took his kid to the babysitter and shut the car off while he walked his kid to the door. When he went back to his car it wouldn't start. His car keys were still at home sitting in the bowl by the garage door which was close enough to the car for him to start it. His wife still teases him about that.

    I have a retired chief of police and fellow church security team member that has and wears a 40 s w shield in a sneaky Pete often.
    Along with a glock 9mm in a t shirt gun holster, a Springfield 1911 at 4 30 iwb and a glock sw40 cal weak side at 3 30.
    A true renaissance man.

    I went ahead bought a Sneaky Pete holster for my Colt Mustang Pocketlite and I'm pleased with it. It fits the gun perfectly but as Mercator mentioned it does block the pants pocket. It is certainly not for a quick draw but that's not what I bought it for.

    This holster gives me a way to carry a small pistol comfortably without having anyone freak out because they see a gun. If anyone asks me about what's inside I'll just tell them that "salvation lies within."
