    Are holsters available that use common items such as cell phones to camouflage the fact that it is also carrying a gun?

    NAA mini revolvers can be carried in a belt buckle.

    Hmmm. I'm thinking something more along the line of something to carry a J or K frame S&W.

    I have an Anderson Enterprises blue fanny pack that can house my glock and a spare mag - it also works well hiding the gun in the car door on long trips; while not a holster, it does provide another option, especially since it isn't tactical black, it doesn't scream "gun"

    IMHO, J-frames belong in a pocket, in a pocket holster. If it's cool enough for me to wear a cover garment, I carry a .357 K-frame or a .40 SIG in a belt holster.

    Seems like I saw someone is making a holster that uses a pager or cell phone to disguise the belt attachment.
    Ah yes, it's called "Pager Pal" and it's a pancake type IWB.

    I really don't like the idea behind pager pal because what if during your draw the gun gets caught in your pants?

    How about taking a blank plastic box, put two small air lines from a fish tank into your pants. Put the Jframe in there, if you need it, just pop the box open and its there. Look like a Medical Device that most wouldn't question. Just an idea I had when I saw a rail thin girl walking down the beach with this medical device on her hip.

    I don't have a permit in San Ramon. This question came up in a conversation with friends in Idaho and Oregon.

    Something like a PDA case, modified to hold the gun upright, could accommodate a lightweight snubnose revolver or a small pistol. A cell phone case is too small for anything but perhaps a mini-revolver or a Downsizer, neither of which are practical sidearms.

    Holsters that don't look like holsters are gimmicks.

    Goshen UnHolster was an interesting product years ago, but they went out of business.

    Don't be so sure about that CB.

    This one's been working well for me. My latest version uses uber - tacticool black tape.

    I use a fanny pack - with peace signs from a head shop.

    It's where I keep my "piece"...which is in turn a "Peacemaker" (OK, near-clone, Ruger NewVaq in 357.

    Why not just get a holster that nobody can see?

    i.e. concealed carry

    The idea is that some common item would help break up the outline to make the gun easier to carry concealed with a greater variety of clothing.

    A friend had a "pager pal" for a while. Said it worked well but didnt last long. I think they've updated to a "phone pal" type of thingy, but I hear it's still fragile plastic.
