Uncle Mike's Sidekick Holster, Size 2
on December 29, 2007
I did not purchase my holster from LG Outdoors as the previous poster did, so I cannot speak to their customer service or the issues he had in obtaining his refund.
As for the holster itself, I could not disagree more with his negative review. I purchased this holster for a Keltec P-3AT .380 semiauto, with the intention of having a concealed carry weapon with me even when wearing clothes that would not permit a standard size weapon. At first glance, I was not overly impressed with the seemingly simplistic design. But in the weeks that I have carried (worn) this holster (and the weapon within it), I have really become quite impressed with its form and function.
The holster DOES do a good job of keeping unwanted debris or loose change from entering the action or the trigger area of the weapon, but where this holster really shines is in the design of the materials and outershell. The holster is soft and as lightweight as possible. This helps to reduce the imprint of the weapon on your pocket and also keeps from weighing down your pants when wearing lightweight dress pants or wool slacks. The outer material is a suede like material, and the band around the middle is s rubber-textured material, so that the holster stays in your pocket when you draw your weapon. In fact, that was really what I was concerned with when I first purchased this holster; I thought the holster might come out with the gun and slow down a draw in a dangerous situation. But everytime I wear it, I practice a draw and it has never failed remain in its place and release the gun quickly.
Often I wear mine in the place I might normally wear my wallet, and there is almost no difference in size or weight between the weapon/holster and my normal wallet. It is just as comfortable and no more noticible than the wallets most men carry.
Obviously a .380 is not my first choice in a concealed carry weapon, but on those rare occasions when it is a choice between no CCW and my tiny .380, I have been EXTREMELY pleased with the fit and function of my Uncle Mike's Sidekick Pocket holster.
