Sneaky Pete...Range Report....

The wife bought one for her Ruger LC9....it works as advertised...complete concealment - looks like anything but a holster. Well made, great retention, fairly easy to draw from BUT...this thing ain't a quick draw holster. Downside: Its HUGE! feels like you're toting around a flat screen TV and getting it on a belt is a two person job....she has used it twice before consigning it to the "nice try but no cigar - holsters that don't work" box....

    I bought one for my SR9c, thought I could wear it while on duty. .......naw to bulky.
    It too resides in the holsters that don't work box.

    Similar results here - I like it and it is all they said it was, but I just never seem to find a circumstance that I want to use it in. My XDs.45 fits in it, or either of my Kahr K-9s, but everybody who knows me knows I don't carry IPADs or cameras around on my belt, and I never look like a tourist or a high-tech type, so I feel funny wearing it.

    Truthfully, I've never worn it a single time.

    I have one for the keltec P3AT and like you think it is just too large. Looking at the latest phon/tab combination things coming out, seeing one on someones belt would make you think they just had one of those new oversized phones. I only use it when we go to the beach and occasions like that

    I have one, too, don't like how big it is; but, I'd use it except I want to use more gun.

    I, too, have one for my Kahr PM9. It's well built, but by necessity, large enough so it made me self-conscious to carry it. It's a two handed holster, meaning it takes one hand to open it and the other hand to grab the pistol. You can do it with one hand just not as quickly.

    It ain't for a Marshal Dillon style shoot-out, but for a flap holster, not bad. I feel better about carrying concealed under my shirt than carrying the Sneaky Pete in plain view.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
