Hi glenva. Welcome aboard.
I store my P3AT in the solf case.
An extra mag just fits also.
I use a luggage lock on the solf case.
Keeps the kids out.
Again welcome.
Charlie.

I use it daily. I cut a piece of dense foam to help hold the p3at upright and to add a bit more screening. I zip up about 2/3 of the way, the pistol is held upright, retained enough by the zipper not to fall out, and the my p3at is easily accessible. I've trained my fingers to slide through the open zipper and think it is as good any pocket holster for my purposes. I wore out the first one and picked up another from my son.

Good question Glen. I was wonderin' the same thing. The soft case has a belt loop that could serve as a extrenal holster I suppose even though the Kel-Tec logo is visible I still think it would simply look like a tool pouch or something. Wonder if that'd be OK? I like the idea for camping or hiking.

I'd be inclined to keep both zippers on the high side to avoid accidental opening hence dropping or losing the gun.

With the Kel-Tec logo on the case, carrying it on your belt in plain sight is probably a no-no. Concealed means CONCEALED, and there would just be too many people, not to mention the police, who would know exactly what was in the case. I think "open carry" like that might be problematic.

The zippered case supplied with the gun is not an option I use. The case is a neat case for sure, but it is NOT a holster.

There are many good holsters... (pocket type, IWB, OWB)....that are not over priced that are made for specific ways to carry.

Do a search on this board and you can find many options. One very creative KTOGer has converted his Kel-Tec case into a very attractive and functional pocket holster.

Do you have a link by chance. I've been doing searches, but can't come up with anything.

If it's completely zipped up in the case it is concealed. Not that I would carry that way because it would be hard to get out. The way I tried it was having it zipped up to the forward end of the grip.

For legal CCW use, some jurisdictions specify a holster if memory serves? I suspect that the zipper case would not qualify as a proper holster?

So even carrying using the popular belt clip attachment would not be OK in some States?

I looked for, but could not find, the link to the pouch/counverted to holster.

Maybe if you post a new thread with the question, some one will direct you.

Below is another neat idea.

I personaly would not carry in the pouch for all the reasons already stated above, plus at least 17 or so more!

YMMV... but there are just to many GOOD options to go with a zippered pouch.

I use the black case to carry the P-3AT when I'm jogging. I don't care that the Kel-Tec Logo is on it. Out of physical sight is concealed. Just because I have something on it that has a company advertisement (even a gun manufacturer logo) doesn't mean there is a gun inside. There are a lot of police downtown here and I walk past them all the time. Never been given any attention.  

Besides, in most States, open carry IS LEGAL! So if it is not expressly illegal in your jurisdiction, you have no legal worries about being 'made'.

Florida is not an open-carry state (unless I'm fishing - go figure!) and I don't worry about whether people think I have a gun or not.

Having said that, I use the Kel-Tec case as I've got nothing better to use while jogging.
