    anyone have any experience with the sneaky pete flap holster good or bad?
    Thinking of one for my Kel tek p32. Looks better than the fanny bag I use now. What say you, is it worth the money?

    I apologize ahead of time for this non-answer as I don't have personal experience with the product. But it reminds me of fanny packs and photographer's vests...it says "gun". It's too big to be a cellphone case and until tablet users start carrying their iPads on their belts, non-gun carrying people wouldn't have any use for something that sized that wouldn't look out of place. Just my opinion. A KT P32 is about as small as it gets and is perfect for pocket carry...just curious why you don't pocket carry and want to wear it outside on your belt.

    Unfortunately, due to their size they're not all that "sneaky".

    A buddy of mine uses one and I was really surprised at how big it turns out to be...he says he get's a lot of "what the heck is in there??"
    But he likes it.....

    Who really wears a huge box on their belt? What part of that is "sneaky"?

    An no, decent cell phone cases don't look like that anymore.

    I don't think the average person would think "gun" when hey saw that. That said it is very big (much more so than I'd imagined) and I do think people would think what the heck is that.

    You're right, the "average" person is pretty obtuse when it comes to guns, cuz they just don't "expect" people to be carrying them.

    May as well put a hook on your belt and hang a range bag from it. :eek:

    Horizontal not vertical

    I have a bulldog cordura cell carrier for my lcp and it doesn't scream " I'm packing". My friend has a sneaky Pete and it's nicer, but being vertical seems to look larger. The horizontal less structured bulldog is broken up by the belt line. Check it out. Nice alternative to pocket Carry when occasion arises.

    I also have a BullDog as Tubby mentions.
    You are not going to get a small 9mm in it as they were designed for micro 380's and such.
    One great thing about using the Bulldog especially in states where concealed carry is law is the fact that the gun can be easily put away while the gun is not exposed in any way.
    I use mine mostly now while traveling back and forth to work.
    At work I get out of the car and lock it in my trunk and when I leave for the day I just clip it on the belt and drive off.
    Very unobtrusive.

    One caveat though...I have a story in the Strategies forum from back in August 2011 about an incident I had while walking with it through a store parking lot.

    Don't much care for that big leather box, but sure do like them suspenders. Think he might let us know where to get a pair. Serious.:)

    I got one for one of my P32's. I haven't used it beyond the 1st week. It's too damn big. It screams "This ain't a smartphone!" all over. It's too big even for the little P32. Stick with pocket carry using a good pocket holster. The DeSantis Nemesis or Superfly work extremely well for the P32. I don't know it's there 99% of the time.

    Those are modified Perry Suspenders.

    I did some timed shooting two weeks ago with a Sneaky Pete and for me it was somewhat faster than my pocket draw times. I think most people on the street would likely think you were carring some kind of electronic device.

    My goodness, that thing is huge! I couldn't see that being a good carry option.

    Glad I saw that photo! I had considered ordering one. Not anymore.

    I bought one of these for a P3AT. Took it out of the box, returned it the very next day. Looked ridiculous! Not passable in my opinion. I never even put my gun in it.

    I carry a Sig P238 in one and like it a lot. With a small gun, it doesn't look out of place at all. I saw a guy with a Glock 19 in one the other day and it did
    look goofy.

    slap an Alienware or Dell or any other computer company sticker on it and... who knows? People are generally thick on some things. That said, it could make you more of a target too. "hmm there's an expensive electronic device this guys gonna get it." type of thing. ya know?
