I just got it in my cheaperthandirt order, looks and feels great, EXCEPT that it seems to be like ~1" too long for the P-3AT.

Anyone try modifying it?

I think I can remove the lining near the opening, then cut the material along the top so the pistol will fit all the way down into it, then sew it back up.

If it works I'll post some pics, if not, I'm out ~$10.

Re: Anyone use Uncle Mikes Pocket Holster (Size 2)

I bought one and it fit just fine, are you sure you got the right size? I switched to a Desantis Nemesis only because it stayed in my pocket during draw better (more friction on the outer material).

Rather than cut on the holster, why not just have your wife/girlfriend/mom/significant other, run a stitch along the bottom of the holster, effectively shortening it? Or maybe some foam to raise the gun up within the holster.

The size #1 works perfectly. It's more "L" shaped than it is rectangular and it says that it is for small 22 and 25 autos. Works great in front or back pocket. I'll try to post a pic when i get home from work. For my use, I think it's ideal.

yeah, I should have gotten a Size 1 it looks like... good thing is it was only ~$10, I'll save the Size 2 for my Walter P22 and grab a Size 1 and Nemesis and see which one I like better.

Thanks for all the info!

I would be shocked if you did not absolutely love the nemesis. It is the perfect pocket holster in my opinion.

I have a nemesis too, but you can easily mod the Unkle Mike to allow for an extra magazine as well as a laser. I only use the Mike for this reason - mine has both the mag and laser treatment. Here's a photo of the easier mag only mod...

I have an Uncle Mike's size 2 Pocket Holster and I like it! It covers the trigger completely so you won't snag it on anything. The P3 doesn't fit all the way to the bottom of the holster but...so what? It fits nicely in virtually every pocket I've put it in even including sweat shorts which I'm already wearing on my evening walks. (It was 87 degrees here today so it's definitely shorts and tee-shirt weather. Perfect for the P3AT.) Also, it just "prints" like a wallet even in thin shorts.
