Just got myself a P32, and love the little thing. I plan to carry it when I'm going light, you know shorts and a T-shirt... Just out of curiosity what do you guys recommend for a holster for a P32. I'm just looking for something that will protect the trigger and is a little more than just the pocket clip.

I carry mine in a DeSantis Superfly, basically a stickier Nemesis with a detachable cover flap to further disguise its outline. After being carried a while, it is less blocky looking than it was when new. Mine usually travels in my hip pocket, simply because it draws less attention there, and in slacks and khaki cargo shorts it completely disappears. It needs a draped shirt tail in Levis, though, if someone were to stand right behind you and look down.

I prefer a leather pocket holster with a removable anti-print panel. This makes it quite versatile in terms of use, front pocket, back pocket, etc. IMO, leather is a better material as it wears quite well and provides more rigid support and protection. Mine has seen well more than a decade of regular use and is still in perfect form. Mine is an older model from a maker no longer in business but the style is still available from other makers.

Here are similar holsters from pocketholster.com. Although I have no experience with their products, the image shows the style, the 4 across the top, without the hinged, fake zipper top. Rather than screws, the anti-print panel on mine is fastened with snaps, making it simple and quick to convert.

If you look around, I'm sure others make a similar style. Hedly Holsters makes a good one, but I think their anti-print panel is riveted on, making it less versatile, IMO. Perhaps they could alter that and use snaps or screws upon request.

I use an Uncle Mikes #1 with the belt clip removed. I dont like the bigger holsters in my pocket. I have one that makes it look like a wallet but I never liked it!

Belt Clip + Mic Holster to protect the trigger is an outstanding combination for minimal IWB carry. It adds no bulk, protects the trigger, and even allows you to clear the weapon without ever exposing the trigger. I use it with P32 and P3AT, it's like they're meant for each other.

LBJ - are those rivets or screws? In other words, can the anti-print panel on that Hedley be easily removed and replaced?

Thanks, someone might be interested. Before his passing, RJ Hedley was an active member here and on many other Gunboards. I bought my P32NAA conversion from RJ. He was a very talented and capable maker of quality leather holsters. Sadly I only own one, a pocket holster for an NAA 22mag mini-revolver. I use it every time I ride my bicycle. I'm glad that Lisa has taken over the business. I'm sure she puts out a high quality product.

A good idea indeed, but not mine. My holster was made by another prolific holster maker and one time member here and around the gunboard community, Kevin Mann of K&D Holsters. Kevin is retired these days.

You know, looking more closely at the pic, I think you're right.

I believe it could be done.
The holster is 2 distinct pieces, a back panel, and a separate piece which is a fully enclosed holster piece riveted to it.
