Inside the pants holster for a PF-9 with an armalaser

I have a PF-9 with an armalaser which squares out the shape of the gun, but makes finding holsters a nightmare, armalaser sells some holsters including an IWB for the PF-9.
Although I live in the very gun friendly state of Vermont, the company I work for would fire me if I was found to be carrying.
The problem for me with a regular IWB is that as I change into a company uniform shirt in the locker room, a coworker will most likely see the gun sticking out of my pants.
This is the kind of carry situations that inside the pants holsters were designed for, but sadly no one seems to make one for the PF-9 with a laser on it.:banghead:

Got any ideas?

I have a PF-9 w/o the laser. I picked up a grandfather oak hidden companion IWB holster. It is a very comfortable and concealable holster at a fair price. Grandfather oak makes every holster to order and he does custom work, I would contact him and see if he could make you a hidden companion that will accommodate your laser.

It sounds more like a pocket-holster situation to me...and maybe shrinking down to a .380 w/ laser. I've pocket carried the PF9 and my wife still does at times...it's a little big but can be done...the .380 LCP w/ crimson trace is nicer for that mode of carry. I don't see any IWB as offering enough security if yo have to change shirts with co-workers....sooner or later someone will see it and rat you out. Pocket carry with a smaller gun you can say it's your cellphone or MP3 or whatever if asked and change the subject.

I've seen a couple holster makers making holsters for the PF9 with the Crimson Trace laser. What are the differences between the CT laser and your Armalaser?

Here's one with a CT: (http://www.stonerholsters.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=133)

(be nice if you could get that with an FBI cant though)


In doing some searching, it looks like the Armalaser is a little larger than the CT so I doubt a holster for PF9 + CT Laser grip would work.

What you need to find is a local custom holster maker that will allow you to drop off your piece and they'll use it to mold the holster (which frankly is going to give you the absolute best holster you can get).

Here's the mega holster maker list http://www.alumbankweb.com/cc-riglinks.php
I'm sure someone there can help :)



I'm wondering if getting a Crossbreed Supertuck (http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/IWB/tabid/56/CategoryID/1/List/0/Level/1/ProductID/1/Default.aspx?SortField=ProductName,ProductName) (or maybe better yet a Minituck (http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/Holsters/IWBInsideWaistBand/tabid/56/CategoryID/1/List/0/Level/1/ProductID/6/Default.aspx?SortField=ProductName%2cProductName)) and modifying it slightly on your own to fit the laser wouldn't work just fine. If they make one for the PF9 with the CT laser than it would probably be just a couple of minor cuts to the Kydex part of the holster.

Cap'n Jack: If you're not satisfied with the selections offered by ArmaLaser/Don Hume, I might be able to help you. We were the first to offer holsters for the Kel-Tecs with the ArmaLaser attached. I invite you to take a look at our selections and see if any would meet your need. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I've always liked the look of those K&D Thunderbird Defenders ... if I owned a gun they make 'em for I'd own one. :D

That's exactly what I do right now, I carry my P3-AT in a pocket holster, it's damn near invisible.:cool:
But I kinda wish I had the real 9mm firepower, that's the reason I bought the PF-9, to have the smallest full caliber pistol I could get.

Also, it seems that everyone is offering IWB holsters. While that is ok it is not what I'm looking for, what I am looking for is an inside the pants push up style holster, sorry for the confusion.

So what exactly do you mean by an "inside the pants push up style holster"?

You mean like a Pager Pal?
