    Really...... who would carry it there? I wouldn't even consider that concealed since it visually jumps out at you.

    Nobody would. It's an illustration of light weight.

    There's a pistol in that picture? Are you sure?

    Hmm,

    Nice illustration of the P3AT's light weight Oleg, but not really stealthy.  The classic set-up is to have the pistol attached to the  stockings/suspenders just like James Bond ladies did with 25 automatics.  The P-32 & P3AT weigh no more than a Colt 25 or Beretta  Bobcat auto so I have to think that would be still a viable mode of carry, though a bit more racy to illustrate ;)

    I don't know how practical it is but it does look nice​

    Oleg, I do imagine that the James Bond Pam Bouvier character would have carried a Kel-Tec P-32 or P3AT if they had been available in 1989.  I realize the first photo is high fashion, but the Khaki's in the second are casual.

    It does 'jump out' but when I first saw the pics yesterday, it started me wondering if there wouldn't be some way to attach some kind of decoration to the top of the clip (something that wouldn't get in the way of functionality) that could disguise it as some kind of brooch or something. Maybe that 'something' could be designed in such a way that it would remain securely attached when wearing the P3AT on the clip but would fall away or be easily knocked off with the thumb, etc. if the pistol were needed. Don't know - just thinking via the keyboard.

    Maybe attached with a magnet? Honestly, if its in the right spot, I dont know that it would matter, as long as it doesn't interfere with the cycling of the action.
     
  10. Sexy as all heck, but not practical at all.  Cumbersome to draw and the shape of the thigh (smaller circumference toward the knee) tends to allow gravity to pull the weapon down as the user moves about during the day.

    My wife used to carry on a thigh setup (about 10 years ago). It was connected to a garter so it didn't slide down. She only used it for work, because it had to be "deep concealment" while wearing a dress and shirt (no belt) that was the best at the time we could get for her.

    She said it was super easy to draw while seated, but as you mentioned awkward to get at while standing/walking.

    Oh wait- this thread started with pics... so I guess the pics are required! ;)

    It's also a classic, historically accurate location for ladies to carry a "last ditch" defensive weapon. Spanish ladies used to carry a clasp-knife in the garter. I'd have to look up the name to be sure, but, IMS, it translated to something like "Salvation of my Honor" or the like.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Hi,

    The set-up is serious, and people have given this sort of carry some thought as illustrated below in leather too, with a 32 Auto so it should work with the P3AT or P-32:

    More info on the rig is at Gunleather.com at this link: https://www.gunleather.com/cart/shopexd.asp?id=30
    and as mentioned before it does require a garter but is more practical that the garter holster rigs you see in ads for Halloween costumes.

    Photo Censored ;D

    Best Regards: :cool:

    Hmm,

    Actually from the grip it might be a Walther PPK, still sort of a James Bond Type Get up. ;)
