Looks just like a wallet in your back pocket if you have the P3AT .380

The 9mm is just a little too large for a back pocket

bad guy comes up to you demanding $...sure dude...no problem...reach for your "wallet holster"...bad guy has a bad day

watch the vids they have

they also make one that works like a knife clip.
a leo friend of mine uses it on his kel tec 380.
he loves it. it just looks like a knife clip

Just saw this thread. I've got a Don Hume wallet holster for my P3AT, not a huge fan of it. It doesn't have that hinge action, so getting it out quickly with one hand is awkward, at best. Definitely not a quick draw option. I know, a wallet holster is meant to fool the BG long enough to get it out, but I'd rather flip the coat outta the way and feed him a flying ashtray or two. Or three.

Its not as bad as my wallet, but it isnt too comfortable. I just really like the idea of drawing from the back pocket if an attacker asks for my wallet rather than drawing from the hip...if a gun is already pointed at me.

I understand the whole wallet thing but it's got to be uncomfortable to sit on. I don't even carry a wallet in my back pocket anymore.
Actually its not bad at all. I carry my LCP everyday in my backpocket in a uncle mikes holster. I deliver medical supplies so im driving around Jackson area alot.

You have to be careful not a days if it looks jusr like a wallet it falls under NFA rules and you have to get a tax stamp for it.
I was worrying about the same thing when I found these holsters, but they are legal and you don't need a stamp.
The Holdster and the ATF

The Holdster came to be out of simple frustration.
I wanted a holster for my new (at the time) Kel-Tec
P-32 and there were none to be found! I found
several that would "work in a pinch" but none that
were made for or fitted to the gun.
So off to my shop I went and out came the
Holdster. However, the very first FFL dealer I
showed it to told me the story of the "forbidden"
wallet holster and warned that I may be outside the
law with my new design.
The next step was to contact the local ATF office.
They were very helpful in getting me pointed in the
right direction and told me to send the design to
the Firearms Technology Branch of the BATF in
Washington for classification.
The FTB-BATF classified the Holdster design as
non-any other weapon (or not a wallet holster)
primarily because it is "readily discernible as a
weapon" due to the exposed slide. As long as it
isn't modified to conceal the weapon over the slide
it is legal to own and use in conjunction with a
semi-automatic pistol without falling in the AOW
