    It is sorta big; but, I've seen cell phone carriers that are big , too.

    It is no worse than a fannypac even though the fannypac is much bigger----ya just have to think people won't pay attention and most won't.

    They are gun specific unlike other holsters that sometimes will work for more that one gun.

    I have one and do not use it much; probably because it is for a .380.

    I don't think I ever wore mine out of the hous . It's in a closet or up in the loft collecting dust

    I'd be embarrassed to wear one - people might think I have a smartphone! :D

    Here's my thoughts on it.
    1) If you're a gun person and know what it is, and see someone else with one on, you probably don't care and figure they're a "good guy" just like you. MAYBE a nob of your head if they notice you looking.

    2) If you're not a gun person,  and see someone with one on, you have no clue if it's a phone case, an insulin pump case, or some other innocuous case, and you really don't care.

    Since it doesn't look like a gun, most of the "sheeple" simply don't care

    I have one for my Shield.  It is a little bulky, but has its uses.  Depending on how you are dressed, sometimes it is a good option.  I have never had anyone figure out what it was that didn't also conceal carry.  They already knew what it was and didn't care that I was wearing it.  My wife used to use it regularly when she would go out to walk the dog because it was very convenient to just throw on real quick.  Since we have moved she can now just let the dog out in the back yard so it has not seen as much use.

    I didn't like mine.  It's a two-hand holster, one hand to open it, the other to draw.  It's big, yes, secure.  I'd forgotten I gave mine to the poet.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    Thanks for your comments, E-mailed them and they dont make a holster for the CZ-82 they said the one for a Glock 19 might work, since I dont own any Glocks I'm gonna hit up some buddies that  do and compare size.

    I have to give Sneaky Pete credit I e-mailed them and got an answer the same evening.

    If it takes two hands you are doing it wrong.  Use your thumb on your drawing hand to swipe up under the flap then grab the pistol.  Very easy with just a little practice.  I find it easier and quicker than a standard OWB holster under an untucked shirt.

    If it is close in size to the Glock 19 it should.  They are not form fitted like a kydex holster.

    Since Gene and I are definitely talking about the exact same holster... It hasn't required 2 hands for me to draw from it. Not much different that drawing from IWB under a shirt.

    My thumb clears the flap (shirt tail if IWB) and there it is

    Edited to add: Tried my EC9s in it, I'll have to remove the finger extension from the mag for it to fit. I simulated that by trying it without the mag in place, and it fits fine

    I've been carrying for 5 years using the SP. I love it. Sure it's bigger than the standard holster, but so what. It's practically open-carry, when all you have to do is flip the flap up and you're ready to pull it out. You can wear it with a suit or shorts and T-shirt. It's available with either belt loops or belt clips. I prefer the loops, because you can slide the holster to anywhere on the belt, as long as you don't put your belt through all the loops on your pants. That's great for when you get in and out of your car or truck, or motorcycle. I just ordered a new one, because the old one got damaged in my latest bike accident.

    Yeah, it is a little big; but, with all the cell phones and different carriers for cell phone I think people don't have a clue about sneaky Pete products.
