PdA HOlSTER T GUNNYSACK Roy Huntington his isn’t a new idea, and I’ve seen them in molded, hard leather, and some made for one fit or another out of soft nylon, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it as a family of holsters, with an extensive fit chart. Made by Hidden Heat Holsters (in America), this is basically a nylon box with some plastic stiffener sewn into the nylon shell. The flap is held closed with a magnetic snap, so you can open it easily. There are several models, of different sizes, fitting a pretty wide cross-section of handguns from J-frames, Taurus Millenium Pro, Walther PPK/S, Kel-Tec P32, Kahr CW40, small Glocks, sub-compact 1911s and even the H&K USP Compact. The guns listed will give you the idea of the general size range. They are customizable in the sense you can change the foam inserts supplied with each one to better fit the handgun you want to carry. The one shown, the Fat Boy seemed to be able to easily handle this Gemini Customs 2.25" J-frame. But I’d say, after examining the models, if your chosen carry gun fits in the general size category of one of these guns, you can find a model that would fit. In actual use, I’d honestly say the Fat Boy is a bit on the big size to be very discrete. If I saw this on someone’s waist I’d wonder what they had inside. If I were on vacation though, I’d assume it was a biggish camera or something of the sort. The smaller sizes are less intrusive in my opinion, and less inclined to beg to wonder what’s inside. I think it’s easy to just assume it’s a phone or accessory case of some kind. Maybe even a “man-purse” situation, if I dare go there? I think you’re asking a lot to carry a J-frame or bigger auto this way, but if you had a slim auto (think: Kahr, Kel-Tec, Taurus SLIM, etc.) this might be a solid option if it’s hot and you’re in the short pants and tank top mode. There’s a left-hand option, leather, paddle and a side-release buckle all available. Price is $59.95 at MSRP and you can have any color you want, as long as it’s black.
