Anyone here have experience with this?

the non-zipper top one.

I've finally worn out my DeSantis Nemesis and I'm looking for something that will print a bit more like a wallet on the outside.

Any feedback/input welcome. TIA :cool:

I don't have experience with that, but can tell you after using a Crossbreed holster, that anything that covers part of the grip makes the draw more annoying.

Thanks. I wondered about that.

I had one of those back in the mid-80's for a .25 ACP Seecamp Semi Auto pistol I had. It looked just like I had a wallet in my back pocket when the thing was holstered into that wallet holster!

I think the price looks reasonable!
I just may consider one for 'Elsie'!

One of the guys that runs the indoor pistol range I frequent carries his LCP in one of those non-zippered models and can draw his PDQ.
I am not sure I would like to be sitting on my pistol but at least you can use it for front pocket use as well.

I've carried in a rear pocket. It's okay if you're not sitting down much. I don't even carry my wallet in my back pocket, though, is why I like cargo pants so much. :D

Thanks. Front pocket is my intent.

DeSantis Nemisis or Super Fly. They stay in place and drawing the gun is very easy.

I've had that exact holster, no zipper, since the LCP came out. Everyday in my rear pocket and all it did was break in a little and conform to my body, so to speak, with the gun also providing support. Sitting wasn't an issue as it would ride up when you sat. Not the wallet, the pocket. I wear Dockers or cargo shorts and it was perfect. I highly recommend using it if it is a choice.

couple years, every day. It's still good but the top is starting to fold over and impede the draw. I just cut that part out and it'll still work for a while.

I carried a while in my back pocket. Oh, the sciatic nerve didn't like that...

One thing leather has over the material used in the construction make of the Desantis,Blackhawk,Uncle Mike's,etc.is long life durability.
And leather ages very well if even half way taken care of.
The material holsters serve a purpose and are nice to have,and I own several,but myself I obviously prefer leather.

^^ sciatic nerve static aside ^^

I just wouldn’t feel comfortable SITTING ON a gun

Not only could you possibly accidentally activate the mag release button but my fat arrzz might damage something while wiggling around in my seat and when time comes to go boom it might not even caaah=lick :eek:

There are just too many other options to take advantage of
