    Hey all, what holsters do you guy's recomend? My P3AT has a crimson Trace. I'm looking for an IWB, a pocket holster and also a belt holster but each must accommodate the CT.

    Watch pocket in jeans works great.

    I carry my P3AT IWB in a Galco U.S.A model 404. I really like the j-hook and horsehide leather. :)

    I like the blackhawk #1 for pocket carry, don't know if it'll work with the CT or not. If I'm going to IWB I use a bigger gun. You might consider the Smart Carry xtra small -- works great with the P3AT for the ultimate concealability even with a tucked in shirt.

    I use Uncle Mike's IWB and pocket holsters. They are very tough and that price is hard to beat.

    I saw a nice looking pocket holster on the "Gunblast" site tonight, for the P3AT, P32, & LCP.
    See it at: www.recluseholster.com  I'd post a pic, but my computer skills are 20th century....sorry! :(

    We can make any/all of those styles of holster for your P3AT with Crimson Trace. We're actually running about 2 weeks turnaround on these styles of holster. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (even if you don't order from us).

    The Recluse holster looks to be a very good product, but I have a hard time parting with $50+, three boxes of ammo, for something I can't hold in my hand and evaluate.  I wish the company luck, but until I can touch and feel the product at a local store, I'll stick with an EBay cheapie or my jean's watch pocket.

    Seems like you could dislodge the trigger from what ever is holding it. Exposing it :-/
    Trigger still needs to be covered. ;) I'll stick to my D.M. Bullard.

    The handgun in the Recluse holster is held firmly in place with the trigger block and is only released when your fingers are inserted to draw. Of course your pocket will be free from any other items so that is not an issue. The holster was designed to solve two issues that have plagued many users; eliminate any profiling along with any chance of the holster coming out with the handgun when drawn.
    The Recluse design came about a few years ago in part because of the post on this forum that lead me to wanting a holster that had the qualities of the perfect pocket holster. We all know that each person needs to choose for themselves what works for them; for this reason there are many other quality holsters available to meet the various needs. Here is the link to the Gunblast online magazine review of the holster for those that would like to read what Jeff Quinn thought of it.

    Hope this helps you choose the best holster for your needs,

    My experience has shown that there really are a number of pocket holster designs that do that very thing, and have been doing it well for a very long time.

    The Recluse is but another form of it and only seems to be unique in its appearance when compared to other pocket holsters based on your criteria.

    I got one of these from the Guru in June 2008 originally for my LCP. Later I got my P3AT. This holster has been used almost everyday since then with no problems, no printing, and deformity. I have since gotten four of my friends to either get the LCP or P3AT and all of them have bought their pocket holster from the Guru too. Just like me they love their convertible pocket holster.

    I received a very nice message from Tod at Recluse Holsters.  Very friendly message from a good man.  If I ever feel the need for a pocket holster, I'll sure keep him in mind.

    Went to the site and viewed the video and was favorably impressed. However, the video didn't show re-holstering. The ease of re-holstering would be very important to me, can you speak to this issue?
